4 stars This is gorgeous music. Like most post rock albums you need a lot of 1. Time and 2. Patience. But in the end, it is a very rewarding cd as long as you keep an open mind. the vocals are a mix of Icelandic and an invented language. However, this new language is much more appealing than Magmas of the 70s. The vocals are beautiful in this case and don't go overboard. This is a largely instrumental affair. I have one gripe: I feel that GYBE got a nice ratio of buildup to climax. But Sigur ros lingers in the buildup a little to long and doesn't expand on the climaxs quite as long, sadly, because what there is of the climax is stunning. Pick this album up!
