4 stars Really good album from the band. The first disc features some good music, including a mesmerising "Von". "Hafsol" is good too, but loses its way by the end of the track. Disc 2 features some very understated performances (sort of "unplugged") that work well. Always present is the emotion in the songs. Two previously untitled songs from "( )" are now given names, "Vaka" (prev. "Untitled 1") and "Samskeyti" (prev. "Untitled 3"). So, not a new collection of songs, but old songs offered in a new setting. All in all, it's easily a 4- star CD, probably a 4.25 if that makes sense. Of course, like all SR albums, you really need to listen a few times before you can take in the vast scope of their work. At times, this is utterly beautiful - as long as you don't have a short attention span.
