3 stars Well, standing by for the reunion of the U.S. underground band Don Caballero (I hope that ProgArchives accept them as a Post Rock/Indo heavy art rock band to be inserted into their official band list.), here it is another interesting work from the Icelandic ensemble: for me their approach is less acclaimed by the critics, which prefer a few bands such as Radiohead for example and in the same time don't regard Sigur Ros as a completely successful band. it's strange because the Icelandic ensemble probably isn't able to emulate the same success like that of R.h. all over the world, but they show a major creativity. Of course - it's partially true - S.R. (unlike R.h.) usually prefer the underground circuits, but for me it's better for them to choose the small gigs in order to maintain their artistic impact (nevertheless I remember the Last Summer show at Villa Arconati -Bollate near Milano- in the course of july 2005, in which they appreciated the enthusiastic feedback of the Italian people very much!!...). The track "Milano" -for instance- is right dedicated to my city, in which every intelligent music fan often wants to "buy" a different kind of music and S.R. can satisfy such an important exigency: a great charming mood, a visionary soft music - a bit melancholic - but always intelligent. Their purpose is clear in all the other tracks and as for this reason their album "Takk" is not only for the lovers of the "Borealis" atmosphere from be collected if you're into the best experimental post rock anyway, even thoug actually it should be worth a "3 stars and an half" righter score, in comparison to the best albums of progressive music!!
