3 stars Both the band name and the album title gives the game away.

Long thematic somber pieces of music, bordering to funeral dirges. This is normally Sigur Ros's domain. But this scene has been crowded lately. Until Sunrise, some shoe gazing young men from USA, has also converged on this scene with this album.

This is a remastered version of their original version. The re-mastering here is not a success, I have to say. The sound is still a bit soggy. The music is long thematic songs with little variations. Sigur Ros has proved that there is a large market out there among the youths of today (yes, I am an middle aged man) and I am sure this band will find a willing audience with their music.

In all fairness, this album is a good album. It floats on the strength on the melodies and the changing moods. Which change from somber to rather brutal, contrast filled moods. The instruments is both acoustic and harsh electric guitars + tangents. There is no vocals here whatsoever. The bass is also very much present in the soundscape. A sound I would call reflective.

My main gripe is the lack of some really great melodies and the lack of variations. Besides of that, this album is good but not everyone's cup of tea. It is good music for silent frostbitten winter evenings......... until sunrise.
