2 stars There's a frightening tendency this year I've noticed, for good bands releasing average albums, often with free download/free streaming proposal. OK, GREGOR SAMSA was a noticeable exception from the 'rule', but the more free music was coming my way, the less captivating it was...and is. 'Me Su Eyrum Vi Spilum Endalaust' is another example of Post-Rock band making a song-oriented Indie-Rock album. Seriously, I'd love it, if they preserved that positive mood set by first tracks up to the end; I'd be the first to claim that SIGUR ROS have overgrown their ambitions to create simple enjoyable songy album. But no, they've thrown 'Festival' and 'Ara Batur', purely predictable orchestrated 'big things', then some filler...and this closing 'English' song is a throw-away stuff really. Actually, I really liked only one track, the almost-namesake 'Vi Spilum Endalaust', enlightened march of Icelandic gnomes, if you wish, I couldn't but throw this journalist cliche here))) On the other side, this is where free pre-order streaming works for listener: once you've heard what you are proposed to buy, it's up to you what to do. Holding fingers crossed for future releases by SR and going to re-check 'Heima' right now. Cheers
