4 stars This is a great introduction to the Solstafir band. The experimental features within each song is unique and different from the other songs in the album. However, some songs such as "Svartir Sandar" and "Melrakbbus" suffer from extreme repetitiveness that makes you "sigh". Even though the song "Svartir Sandar" has a beautiful ending that makes it worth it. Songs such as "Fjara" were extremely beautiful, with great vocals, guitar and basslines. Not to mention the lyrics, which wounded beautiful and made me open the translation to understand this beautiful album.

This is an overall great experimental album and a good introduction to the Icelandic band.
