4 stars This is a rare treat. It is beautiful, haunting and unworldly. I've never heard anything like it. I can't help but feel obligated to share my sentiments here. I find the slow, dreamy ethereal sounds extremely soothing and calming. The tracks are laced with lush strings, atmospheric guitars and angelic vocals.

I sincerely recommend this to anyone. The title has been roughly translated from Icelandic to "A good beginning" and the artwork also gives hints of something fresh and innocent. I have to say that some of the darkest, most emotionally charged and moving songs can be found on this album, which may or may not be difficult for some people to digest. But this music is capable of enriching your soul.

This has been among my personal favourites for the last ten years or so. I particularly love the first three tracks as well as the seventh and the eighth called "Olsen Olsen" but there are plenty more amazing moments. 4.5 stars.
