4 stars If this isn't quite the masterpiece that AGAETIS BYRJUN is, it's still a fine follow-up that contains many brilliant moments. The opening "Vaka" (or Untitled 1) is a pretty downbeat way to begin the album, but it's a gorgeous track whose opening somehow reminds me of the creepier moments of 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY. Track 2 segues into "Samskeyti," a beautiful instrumental that reminds me a bit of the title track from Brian Eno's ANOTHER GREEN WORLD. Untitled 4 ("Njosnavelin") is the clear masterpiece of the album, and one of the finest tracks Sigur Ros ever recorded. The background child-like noises strangely reminds me of Floyd's UMMAGUMMA outtake "Embryo" (found on WORKS).

What ultimately plagues the CD is that there are just too many songs that follow the same tempo and blueprint. This album doesn't have the variety and shifts in mood that AB did. However, if you loved AB you will definitely want this one for the aforementioned tracks.
