A work of aural beauty,
This review is from: ( ) (Audio CD)
This is an album which defies categorisation, as well as words. As such, it is easy to see why it remains untitled, as not even Hopelandic could conjure up words of sufficient splendour to describe this piece.
Sounding far more natural and much less 'produced' than Agaetis Byrjun allows this piece to transcend to the next level above the previous album. The natural reverb created by their home studio is far more condusive to getting an organic sound than the pedals they previously relied on, and as such the music sounds truer to itself.
If you were a fan of the first album, this will not disappoint. It carries on nicely from where AB left off and points promisingly to the future, when films will be made specifically for Sigur Ros' music.
