4 stars In Takk Sigur Rós deffinitely found the way of making good albuns again, revitalazing their sound. The band did not quit intelligentely of their celestial expressionist trademark sound, but moving it into other direction. The album transmitts more an idea of an "nostalgic joyfullness" rather than the funereal feeling of their previous releases. In part, that's the reason for the big commercial success worldwide - they had a terrific formula, they just had to put it in a way people would accept it easily.

The album as great tracks, since the crescendo sonic power of "Glosoli" till the intrigant majestic beauty of "Sorglega", perhaps the best, the album is full of great moments. "Saeglopur" is one of those moments, another moment of deep celestial beauty taken into the cosmic radiance. Other highlights, using the same formula, include "Hoppipolla" and the longest "Milano". Piano lines are all over the album and are quite inspired. So as the back sounds which help the album to reach its profoundness.

A great album. The band seems to be, further and further, more confident and solid on what they're doing, as they reach more maturity. Even though, not enough to surpass the revolutionary Agaetis Byrjun.
