2nd paragraph is exactly how I feel. That bow-on-guitar swell of sound 1:24 into Svefn-G-Englar is probably the single greatest sound I've ever heard

Digging: The Durutti Column - Vini Reilly

Awesome review, album is my 2nd favourite post-rock album.

eli? have you seen heima? it's a DVD documentary of a bunch of interesting little (or big) free shows Sigur Ros did around Iceland to thank them for all the support. it's a fucking moving watch. i have a copy of it somewhere, but i think the entire thing is fragmented into parts on youtube. i highly recommended you (and any other sigur ros fan) to watch it if you haven't seen it.



EDIT: the thing is on youtube. there goes my night

idk i think TSOAF'S DVD is a close second for me but that's a live show so i guess i shouldn't compare.



i want to invite a bunch of people over and listen to Agaetis and watch Heima. alas, my friends are too metal for that.

I actually slightly prefer Takk to this. Both are still in my top 50 though

Literally, I'm the only person I know with tastes even remotely similar to that of my own.

Yo, welcome to the club!

This may seem out of place given the time frame, but this had been the only album by Sigur Ros I

hadn't heard; it is now my favorite.



Thank you for inspiring me to listen to this. It is one of the most sweeping, and engaging pieces of

music I have ever heard. I thought the uplifting tone of Takk... wouldn't be matched, but the

optimistic of Ágætus Byrjun, it's vast soundscapes, somehow driven by consistent and beautiful

melodies have totally won me over.



One of the greatest albums I have ever heard, and I fear, that I will ever hear.

@MrxSelfxDestruct: Check out Talk Talk's Laughing Stock if you want something that matches the beauty of this album.



@Tarkus: What the hell are you waiting for??
