5.0 out of 5 stars Sublime, 27 April 2001
This review is from: Sigur Ros - Agaetis Byrjun (Audio CD)
Having been a fan of Sigur Ros for over a year now I feel that I have only just gained the right to review their album. From the word go this album is inspirational. Iceland does not know how lucky it is. Jonsi's singing is at worst brilliant and at best simply majestic. Sigur Ros are pioneers of music using cello bows to play their guitars, drumsticks to play a bass guitar and even have their own mini orchestra. I have heard their music described as "Icelandic landscaping" ; an apt desciption. Calm, melancholic and atmospheric followed by sudden eruptions of sound comparable to an exloding geyser. Olsen Olsen and Vidar vel til loftarasa could become anthems of our time and on a rainy sunday afternoon there is nothing like listening to the sonar sounds in staralfur. Well done Iceland, well done Sigur Ros ; the music world salutes you.
