The best so far...,

This review is from: ( ) (Audio CD)
In my opinion Sigur Ros's main strength is delivering a feeling through their songs. Whereas other artists use lyrics to get a message across the sheer emotional depth and layering used by Sigur Ros express something far greater.
() is my personal favourite Sigur Ros to date (although I await 'Takk...' in September) and I think it retains the epic grandure of Agaetis Byrjun whilst moving into darker and deeper waters. A modern masterpiece and a full CD! They're not afraid to break the 70 minutes barrier on their CDs.
Don't expect Ramones-style shortness either (the longest track is 13 minutes). Sigur Ros don't shy away from making sure they included everything they wanted to.
