Prog Reviewer
3 stars "() "is a peaceful ambient album with a lamenting fell across the whole album. "()" is slow moving and quite mellow but it succeeds in producing wonderful atmospheres which remain constant throughout the album. On the other hand there are only couple of good moments and the album can get too mellow and lifeless sometimes. Good for background music for when doing homework or something the wait for some of these songs to start are just too long. The idea of having all the tracks and album untitled is a very interesting one; I think the empty CD booklet is a good touch as well.

1. Untitled Track 1 (4/5) 2. Untitled Track 2 (3/5) 3. Untitled Track 3 (3/5) 4. Untitled Track 4 (3/5) 5. Untitled Track 5 (4/5) 6. Untitled Track 6 (3/5) 7. Untitled Track 7 (3/5) 8. Untitled Track 8 (4/5) Total = 27 divided by 8 (number of songs) = 3.375 3 stars Good, but non-essential

"()" probably isn't the best place to start with Sigur Ros, I'd recommend getting "Ágćtis Byrjun" and "Takk." before this album, they are easier to get into. "()" is a good album but there just isn't enough substantial material to make it worth 4 stars in my opinion.
