4 stars Listen to Sigur Ros is a bit ' like looking at a photograph of a little ' blurry, which you do not have a complete perception. This feature is sure to become their brand, and is also the reasons why you love or hate, no middle ground .

And even " Takk " is no exception to this rule. In fact, from the very first song " Takk ," a brief introduction to keyboards sound , you understand what will be the mood of the disc. The first track serves as the intro to the second track and single " Glósóli ," undoubtedly the best track on the disc . The song is characterized by a particular ascending climax , in fact begins in a quiet , in perfect Sigur Ros style, and evolves to flare up in the past and exciting final stages, in which the group shows also a rock soul, rarely expressed before . The third song has the funny title of " Hoppipolla " and listening to it , one has the impression of being in front of a commercial pop version of Sigur Ros . There are many notable songs of this disc. Recall "Gong" where you can see the influences of Radiohead and the melancholic " Andvari ."

To conclude we can say that "Takk" is a fabulous cd, like a rose that grows in the middle of modern music production. However, this album is not even a miracle, and maybe from a group like Sigur Ros could you expect a little bit more.
