4 stars Infectiously uplifting with its soaring. bombastic melodies and subtly elegant in its quite ones, Takk is a much more full and satisfying album than the abstract ( ) featuring well arranged and beautiful songs in the bands usual wide range of timbre and tone. Powerful in its ability to both invigorate and hypnotize into placitude, Takk plays well while in a variety of moods and certainly takes the listener on a musical journey through its dynamics, ending with the sobering and peaceful Heysátan.

While not quite as well conceived or varied as the excellent Agaetis Byrjun, Takk remains an exceptional piece of music in its own right and well more than please lovers of emotional, melodic, intense, and beautiful sounds.

Songwriting: 4 Instrumental Performances: 3 Lyrics/Vocals: 4 Style/Emotion/Replay: 4
