4 stars Another very strong album from one of the best bands around. The grace and power in Svefn-G-Englar is beautiful, Starálfur is very intimate and my favourite is Hjartaő Hamast (Bamm Bamm Bamm) which means the beat of the heart. There are a couple of spots on the album that don't quite get there, nothing serious, but that just brings it back from being a 5-star CD. The four stars though are very well deserved. You really do need to listen a few times though to get it (which is just like it was for me all those years ago listening to Genesis in the 1970s). Another very good album from a truly excellent band. In fact, I first listened to them four months ago and now I have everything they've put out. That's the first time I've done that with a band in many years.
