4 stars Sigur Ros explore beauty of sadness in this musical magic, ( ) album. But it is not bitter sadness, it is beauty and hope everywhere, this album is n o t depressing, it is certanly their heaviset one.

It is to notice that while it is not as accesible like other SR works, it still manages to be so much varied, and somehow much intense. Even sad songs here (first one is Alafoss) have rocking dimension, and remain full of sweet keyboards and great bowed guitars. This is the same piece of music reinvented for eight times and left to listeners to reinvent how they wish, how many times they want. Songs have no origin meaning, no lyrics, and anyone can understand it in their own way.

Melodies are so nice and original, and this time string quartet puts music where it is the best place; musicianship is really impressive. And drumer is so much talented, never goes over limits, every hit is on its place, he is also much varied in songs. This is an excellent piece of music, brilliant prog rock album, atmospheric and calmed, heavy and sharp, and with perfect sense of connection between these two sides.
