Format: Audio CD
Sheer beautiful work. The whole album leads from one delicate string and piano piece to another, creating a greatly intricate and powerful story. The percussion element works wonderfully to bring together the whole ensemble. The build up in Gleypa Okkur is stunning, the subtle vocals are a great accompaniment towards the fading strings, this song sets down a great build up for Hęgt, Kemur Ljósiš with its hard hitting layers of strings sailing up scales and reaching a highly anticipated downfall. I recommend this album to anyone. Even if you are not a fan of classical, listen to this now. I love it and cannot stop listening.

I came upon this album by chance and I had never heard of the artist/composer before. I am so glad I found it. It is beautiful. It is somber but at the same time peaceful & uplifting. I now want to go on and buy other albums by Olafur Arnalds!

This was my first journey into Olaf Arnaulds music and what a pleasure it was. If you want 'in your face' stuff this is not for you. It's beautiful, melodic, dark, sombre, emotional!!!!! I could listen to this day after day and never get bored! I've bought several Olaf albums which are really good but none so far exceed the level of sheer beauty, emotion and.....lost for words, of this album. Modern prog rock at it's best but so much more!

I listen to this, and other Olafur stuff, pretty incessantly, without getting bored. I love it. It is relaxing, yet lifting somehow.
