1 of 1 thought this review was well written

I’ll be honest, I’ve never even listened to med sud i eyrum vio spilum endalaust. Nor have I ever had much interest to. I’m sure I will eventually, when I feel like finally fleshing out Sigur Ros’s discography, but from what I’ve heard of it, it doesn’t sound like what I want out of Sigur Ros. And I know that’s bad--looking for something from an artist--but when I think of Sigur Ros, all I really think about is ( ). All I think about is just how lost I get in it. And listening to Valtari, all I really want to do is get lost in it. So I’ve tried, but as much as I can try to slow myself down and submerse myself in it, there’s just no payoff. Behind those cold wails and keys and guitars there is a band that so desperately wants to mean something again, that wants to communicate more than anyone else could without actually saying anything, but they just don’t have anything left to say. I firmly believe that Sigur Ros believe every word they’ve said about Valtari, and I believe that they wanted to achieve the same world-bending effect as they did with ( ), stylistic differences aside. I just can’t help but hear songs like “Fjogur Piano” and not hear a band that wants to feel their own music again. So maybe they are just like me, trying to get into Valtari at the level they want to.

its a shame youve avoided med sud because it isnt like ( ). ( ) was the only sigur album i loved, so i didn't check out med sud for a while, but it turned out its really great, and actually my second favourite of their albums.
