ah ok i get what you mean now. yeah i could see how a couple of tracks on med and his solo album could be irritating. especially since it's a completely different style to sigur's other music. you can't be expected to like every style of music that an artist chooses to explore.



and i don't remember discordant at the end of untitled 7. maybe it just fits better for me. but yeah, agaetis has moments of bad vocals mixed in with his usual great performance (i love track 2). whereas takk is just overall a little bit flat-sounding for my liking, as if he isn't quite singing high enough (especially on hoppipolla, i hate the vocals on that song), but never sounds as bad as the bad moments on agaetis. his vocals are absolutely flawless on med sud.

Not really the end of Untitled 7, the climax I'm referring to is closer to the middle (6:40-ish). Don't get me wrong though minty, I still like Med quite a lot (and his solo work), I just think it's a decent bit worse than this/Takk/Agaetis.



But damn dude IDK I think his vocal work on hoppipolla is just perfect. When the instrumentation finally hits that peak and jonsi is crooning his soul out, I think it's one of the best sigur ros moments.

When I hear this album, I feel it's the sonic equivalent to Iceland's spectacular beauty. Untitled #3 absolutely tears me up though. This was like the quintessential breakup album for me in high school.

One of my favourite albums of all time though.

The bowed guitar just makes songs like 4, 6, and 8 beyond epic.

Both are worthy of the praise they get imo

So tough choosing between the two but I definitely like the dense atmospheric feel of this a tad more, especially in the winter.

this is wayyy more heartfelt than that fetus album, the cover of which creeps me out and is probably why i'm a pedophile or something

It's pretty dark and brooding.

Need to hear it more. Only jammed like twice. But it was good.

The new one's not mind-blowing or anything, and I don't feel like they did the dark style enough on it, but it's another solid 4/5 record from these guys and I'm content.
