4 stars If music could be seen, Agaetis Byrjun would be like heaven. Icelandic band Sigur Ros belong to a different sphere of existence. They have done things that are truly amazing. The texture of music that I found on Agaetis Byrjun drew me into a landscape of visions and dreams. At the end of my journey with the intergalactic, I was deep in tears that I didn't even realize. Nothing in the language can define their music, its just a feeling of deep emotion that circumscribes. I don't even know what the songs are all about, but I have never experienced anything like this in my life. The language is something that I dont know so I dont know what they want to convey through the lyrics. But I dont think thats important at all because they communicate on a level of emotions rather than lingostic or instrumental.

My heart goes all out for all the people who haven't experienced what I have. You might take years of listening and understanding of post-rock and progressive to and then an entry into the realm of Sigur Ros. You will feel graduated after getting into this higher form of music. But unfortunately, Sigur Ros is not everyone and they will remain intellectually inaccessible to most. Anybody who likes to challenge his own emotional existence can try Sigur Ros. Start with Agaetis Byrjun, then Takk and finally ( ).....

I found God's spirit shining brightly in Agaetis Byrjyn....Truly Hypnotic!
