Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Takk... (MP3 Download)
Very nearly scratches a 4-star album.
Hopippola is genius, although unfortunately very overplayed in the media.
Saeglopur is an ingenius little gem tucked away in there though which will not disappoint.
At times jonsi's voice sounds much like a theremin, and the album can't quite seem to decide whether it is a mood/ambient background piece of easy listening or whether you should be investing your time in giving it your full attention. A couple of the songs sound slightly too similar and lack purpose but overall this is an emotional masterpiece and nobody can detract from the talent that these people have.
Music is a universal language, and the Hopelandic vocals used here prove that, somehow knowing exactly what is meant without actually understanding a word.
I'm looking forward to buying more of their work.
