4 stars This is a brilliant piece of work! I listen to this quite a lot and it keeps growing on me. A lot more digestable if you don't quite feel upto listening to a full album by Sigur Ros. This piece is very warm, it reminds me a lot of the track "Kid A" by Radiohead. This is a 20 minute piece that is split into 3 pieces (i think this may have been so it could be put onto both sides of a vinyl). The strange title comes from the only vocals on the EP that appear on the last track. This tune flows beautifully, keeping the same sensual backing sounds going in the background. Ba Ba Ti Ki Di Do is one of Sigur Ros' more daring pieces but it is such a beautiful piece of music. This will leave the listener relaxed and feeling good. A very chilled out piece. The whole piece is mostly based on piano and effects, again having a very post rock sound to it.

Anyone who loves "()" and "Agaetis Byrjun" should definetly find this EP and add it to their collection as I find it just as good as their last 2 albums. The EP may lack any real vocals, guitar and drum parts but it is still a very strong piece. Highly recommended! Godspeed fans will probably like this one too as it is very uplifting, similarly to "Storm" from "Lift Your Skinny Fists Like Antennas to Heaven" but it is much less dramatic and more mellow.
