4 stars This is usually bashed for being a very dark successor to the brilliant "Ágćtis Byrjun", well it is in fact not as good as AB, but is beautiful anyway, it is a more ambient album (yes! even more!), that flows almost as two tracks, is has less vocals and much more minimalistic soundscapes, heaviest and dirtiest moments but also some very stunning hymnal moments.

The first half of the album, from "Untitled 1" to "Untitled 4" is sort of "light", it is richer in instruments, more fast-paced, and more cheerful. While it is not as good as the second half of the album, it is more regular, all four tracks are great. The second half is way longer than the first, and heavier, slower and darker, "Untitled 7" and "Untitled 8" are two of the greatest Sigur Rós compositions, but "Untitled 5" and "Untitled 6" though they are good, don't really reach the same level.

This one great soundtrack to calm night with headphones and doing nothing else than listening to this, well, it is post-rock.
