Momentary Lapse
5 stars Takk... is an absolutely amazing piece of work by the Icelandic post-rock group. It is certainly a step up from (), and, quite possibly, even from Ágætis byrjun. From the wildly adventurous Glósóli, to the woefully dramatic Sæglopúr, to the beautiful, majestic Hoppípolla, this album is a work of art from start to finish. This album delivers what are probably the deepest and most powerful emotions ever from the band, and some of the emotional moments to ever be brought forth on an album. The lyrics, seldom, almost inaudible, and even in an impossible language, are found to be not a flaw, but just one of many mysterious textures that make up this conceptually minimalistic, but sophisticated album. Such an advanced sound is seldom even thought of, and its strange, entrancing layers of sound are always interesting, even after the hundredth listen. Takk... is a true treasure, a diamond in the not-so-rough collection of Sigur Rós.
Momentary Lapse | 5/5 |
