5 stars Last week I received my paycheck as always, so I thought why not buying a couple of albums now? The first one was Pink Floyd's Meddle, I was hesitant about the second one, but my first idea was () by Sigur Rós.after reading the reviews posted right here I thought, maybe they're right and this is not a very good album to buy, then I thought well I'll buy Mogwai or Godspeed You Black Emperor.

I went to the store and my girlfriend told me, love! Buy that Sigur Rós album you wanted, it can't be that bad, just try it and let's see what happens. I can't thank my girl enough for this, turns out this is one of the best albums I've heard by this band, at least it is their most Post-Rockish disc in their entire history. People hoped to hear a follow-up so similar to Ágćtis Byrjun that were disappointed when () saw the light back then.

The bottom line is, if you don't like this album or any of the songs inside it, chances are that you don't even like Post-Rock in the first place, you might like Sigur Rós for their digestible chords and melodious vocals, but believe me when I say that Digestible does not necessarily means better and complex doesn't mean bad at all. It's just that with () Sigur Rós styled their music in a Godspeed You Black Emperor kind of way, their songs are long. really long.but they get somewhere, and when they get there it's maybe the most worthwhile minute of the whole album.

Yes their other albums are good, and I do listen to them quite often.but musically this is by far their best and most amazing album to date, thanks god I didn't pay attention to the bad reviews found in this place. Don't you hesitate when buying () it's just to great to be missed.
