3 stars A very curious album by a very curious band. Sigur Ros has made another excelent album with ( ) and very different from their previous efforts.

( ) can sometimes can be described as haunting, dark, melacholic, slow but most of all beautiful in every way. As other people have commented in previous reviews, the album is divided into two halves. The first one is very sad and kind of atmospheric but it still has melody concidering how it is described. The other half is more instrument based compared to the first one and a tad more uplifting than the first half but its still very melancholic and little trases of anger in their playing .

This is also Sigur Ros's (?) slowest work to date so It might not be recommended to everyone unless they are well familiarised with the post-rock genre or if they have a very high dose of concentration and patience because the album could strike them as boring, but if you enjoy slow music then this could easily be a highly enjoyable album.

IMO this is not a masterpiece but its one step they will take and learn to form their true masterpiece.
