It's hard to rate it as a Sigur Ros album cause it doesn't sound like a traditional one they'd do. In fact one complaint I have is barely any Jonsi in it and many of the tracks are identical tone/feel. Opener and closer are easily best tracks.

If you have never listened to Sigur Ros then this might not be the place to start because of how different this album is. This album is a 16-year long wait that fans have been waiting for and does it live up to that hype and wait?well for me maybe. Sigur Ros became famous for their dense post-rock instrumentation, claustrophobic (yet beautiful) ambient soundscapes, and surreal vocal performances (especially on their 1999 ?gtis byrjun?, 2002, ?( )?, and 2005 ?Takk??). However, the lead singer (and mastermind behind the whole project), Jnsi, always wanted something more magnificent, more personal, and denser. So, in 2002 he worked with the above artists to create a live performance showcasing the power of a historic Icelandic poem. The band sat on this and wanted to do something huge with it. But as time passed, they sat and sat on it. So now we have it and it really is something to behold. Although it is very patience-testing, when the true beautify comes through on the record it comes in hard. So angelic yet so haunting, something all people should try if you want a journey through the culture and history of a country most people know nothing about.
