Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis
Re-issue 2009. Emerging from the chilly climes of Iceland, the Sigur Ros sound is characterized by slow, swooping waves of atmospheric guitar and keyboards that move over their epic tone-poems like windstorms over a wintry plain. Hushed vocals are delivered in a pidgin language the group dubbed "Hopelandic." Endorsed by the likes of Radiohead, they became international critical darlings and hipster faves in 2001 with their breakthrough recording AGAETIS BYRJUN.

Reykjavík-based noise quartet Sigur Rós are the biggest band in their native Iceland, which should say much, much more about the collective insanity of that earthquake-ridden, blizzard-beaten crag of an island than anything to do with Sigur Rós's sound. But in their music, Sigur Rós reflect all the breathtaking glory of the Icelandic wastes--a fairy-tale explosion of unhinged elemental majesty that's finally crystallized here, their debut European release. Poised somewhere between the haunting soundscapes of Labradford and the lilting Celtic falsetto of Enya, Agaetis Byrjun is a truly breathtaking listen. Frontman Jon Por Birgisson sings in a language that Sigur Rós dub "Hopelandic"--an otherworldly mutation of Icelandic, sung in the falsetto cadence of angels; similarly, he plays his guitar with a violin bow, opening the floodgates for brilliant waves of feedback. And while it's the opening "Svefn-G-Englar" that's Sigur Rós' moment to date, there's far more that they have to offer; listen to the pomp and flourish of a full orchestra on "Flugufrelsarinn," or the awe-inspiring near-religious mantra of "Ny Batteri." --Amazon.co.uk
