2 stars Sometimes prog music doesn't give you nice experiences and Sigur Rós' record Ágaetis Byrjun was such an experience. I am sorry but it was long time ago I heard such boring sounds. I am almost upset so I won't spend som much time with time review. Spaced music can be really interesting with containing wonderful soundscapes you just want to drown into but these tracks was just filled with boring slow and uninspired background sounds. I am sad there were no melodies and every instrument felt dull and turbid.

The only composition I think was worth listening was "Olsen Olsen" which had an irritating vocal part but really nice instrumentals and actually symphonic music. I like they are singing in Islandic but they don't sing in a way that pleased my senses. I wouldn't have been a pain for me to listen to this if the record wasn't so long. A short old-fasioned disc with 35 minutes had been enough for me. I should have big expectations of a prog rock band from Iceland, and a record with so good reputation, but perhaps I'm just too new to this genre.

What does this thing not a disaster is the sometimes shown nice instruments such as great strings on "Svefn-g-englar" and "Starálfur" and good brass instruments on "Ny bátterí". My voting will be two stars, but then consider it's just me. I use to have hard to acquire space rock and krautrock as well as alternative rock and indie.
