() revisited and much much more,
This review is from: Valtari (Audio CD)
Valtari is a stunningly beautiful album. More akin to () than anything since with a greater focus on mood than their recent work. That's not to say that Valtari doesn't contain songs with whopping great hooks on (coz it does - see 'Varud') but the whole second half of the album is their most relaxed and ambient side I've heard yet. Pretty potent stuff and definitely worth repeat listens; which is when the full power of this record becomes apparent.
I don't think this is their best album, it lacks the scope of their previous albums (Med Sud excluded) but I do think this represents a perfection of their 'Pure Beauty' side. Looking forward to hearing their 'Dirty' side again on Kveikur!
This album especially reminded me of a UK band called Takeda, google 'Takeda Regret' I guarantee if you enjoyed this you'll enjoy Takeda.

Thanks for head's up on Takeda, I've been listening to the back-catalogue on their bandcamp page. Some definite influence on their Regret track for sure but I think a more diverse talent than Sigur Ros. I say other Sigur fans should follow where I have tread and check out Takeda.
