4 stars Probobly the most atmospheric album i've ever heard, this beautiful album by Sigur Ros is one for late, sleepless nights when you just need to stop thinkin about life and escape to an impossibly vivid "otherworld."

Agaetis Byrjun was my first album by this rather minimalistic group, and prior to purchasing it i never really heard any of the music from them.

The songs here are soundscapes to your most vivid, wild dreams beyond imagining. The smooth flow is remarkable, each track is somewhat lengthy, and they all build on each other in unique ways.

A lot of different sounds are present on this album, and as the album progresses different instruments and techniques are used to make the experience thrilling the entire time.

An excellent, relaxing album that really allows the listener to exand their personal psyche and escape the pressures of the day in exchange for the mysterious and beautiful.
