5 stars This is by far the most beautiful music ever created.

Sigur Ros doesn't create music around an idea or concept, they create it around a mood. Words cannot describe the beauty presented in the 71 minutes of this album. All of the tracks are essential to the album. I don't know how a group of people can create something as beautiful as this album. The emotional tension builds constantly throughout this untitled masterpiece until the amazing final crecendo. Listening to single tracks from this album doesn't do it justice. This is an album that needs to be heard from beginning to end uninterupted.

I can only see one possible downside to this album. It takes quite a bit of patience, and if you're looking for exciting positive music, you're definately in the wrong place.

But buy this album, give it some patience, put aside some time to just listen to it without any distractions. This is one of the few albums that I can say everyone must hear regardless of musical taste. The music is so emotionally charged. When you listen to the album you are hit with a flood of emotions. Some may say that the album is very depressing, but i don't think it is. The album presents two sides, the first is hope, the second, anger. Sigur Ros left the album blank so that you can come up with your own interpretation, but that is how i see it.

Anyone who has lost faith in modern music needs to hear this.

Everyone needs to hear this.
