3 stars Overall, there is a very melancholic feel to "( )". You can also catch some similar aural landscapes to the previous release "Ágćtis Byrjun". Tracks 1 through 4 are absolutely lovely, including some production tricks and great synthetic sounds. I love the more gentle and beautiful optimism of track 3, whilst track 4 drifts between two moods in a wonderfully passive, relaxed way. The remainder is not as good but the crescendos are quite nice and something you can hear as background music. It can work well on a gloomy day if one is in the right frame of mind because the sounds can be quite dark and haunting. There aren't as many string arrangements as on the previous album, you can mostly hear atmospheric guitars, organ and piano on this one. Personally, I find "Ágćtis Byrjun" and following album "Takk" to be a lot better. I like "međ suđ í eyrum viđ spilum endalaust" more too with its more mainstream sound and production. 3 stars.
