This review is from: Takk... (Audio CD)
Sigur Rós changed my life. No other artist has ever meant so much to me, except for maybe Neil Young.
For me, their music has such a universal aura to it; evoking strong feelings of love, sadness, regret, joy. Everything. The emotion and beauty conveyed is just so pure and so true that it becomes much more affecting than the majority of music out there.
Stand outs on this album are:
'Takk...' - The seemingly subtle title track. One of my all time favourites.
'Glósóli' - A climactic, invigorating follow up.
'Meš Blóšnasir' - Magical, joyful. Stunning bass.
'Mílanó' - A heart breaking haze of strings opens this breathtaking song.
'Svo Hljótt' - An epic slow burner.
'Heysátan' - Wonderful, simple, warming end to the album.
Obviously a 5/5 rating from me. I strongly urge you to buy this album, and their others for that matter.
Listen to it, feel it.
