Its quite possible that im not the person to ask in regards to art rock, or experimental music. That being said I do understand it to a degree and I do know when things are being dragged out or when emotion is put into some work. I felt overall that Von was mixed, it was far to long in many parts and it was very odd. If your a sigur ros fan from albums such as ( ) or Takk then this will most likely turn you off as it did me. It is still interesting to listen to once or twice, but i never found the layers that i did In Takk or ( ). Its an odd album but some tracks are still kindoff cool to listen to.
