5 stars Snobb's review says so much of what I feel about this album. I can think of very few albums in the last 20 years which feel and sound as if they come out of nowhere--are unlike anything else that came before them--are so unique that they stand out so starkly from the rest of music of the day. KARDA ESTRA's Eve, THE MARS VOLTA's De-loused in the Comatorium, ULVER's Shadows of the Sun, and MAUDLIN OF THE WELL's Part the Second are the few others that come to mind. Several songs on this album are to this date among the best ever made in this genre ("Svefn-G-Englar," "Flugufrelsarinn," and "Starálfur") and one in particular, "Ny Batteri," still never fails to leave me stunned in awe every time I hear it. A genre-defining album and gut-wrenching listening experience.

Five stars all the way.
