3 stars The unorthodox-ness of Sigur Ros is (for me at least) part of their attraction. That they may challenge sound generally, for their cause, is what interests me. But making sounds for the sake of it probably won't pay the bills... So it's finding the right mix...

Initially, I felt that the balance was in favour of 'popular' songs, but the more that you listen to it the more that it all melds together.

Ultimately, it's an enjoyable and friendly album - catchy too.

3 and-a-half would be the fair mark, though I don't think that it's quite striking enough to manage a 4. Still, I like it.
