5.0 out of 5 stars Sigur Ros deliver the goods again, 30 Oct. 2002
This review is from: ( ) (Audio CD)
If you thought the success of 'Agaetis Byrjun' would make Sigur Ros go more 'mainstream' think again! This time, the album doesn't even really have a name (being instead represented by a pair of brackets), and none of the songs are named either. However, as with the last album, none of this really matters, because the music is absolutely beautiful. ( ) contains less diverse instruments and sounds then Agaetis, and this has probably something to do with the fact that the songs were played live before the album was released, and are therefore more suited to a live setting. However, one bonus of this more 'coherent' sound is that the album feels more like a concept album, and therefore flows together for most of it's 70 minutes. If you liked the last album, get this as well, it's sheer genius. Also check this out if you like Mogwai (and vice versa). You won't be disappointed...
