This is one of the most phenomenal pieces of music my ears have ever had the privilege of listening to. It is such a story of ups and downs and beauty and everything being right in the world. I don't think I have ever truly connected so well with melody such as this album. I truly like all of Sigur Ros' prior productions, but some of the songs on this album are truly breathtaking.


The inclusion of two specific tracks, "Von" (meaning "hope") and "Hafsol," will especially delight longtime SR fans; written and recorded during the group's infancy in 1995, these tracks became treasured live performances, having never been captured as their expanded, evolved versions until now. The "Heim" ("home") is a six-song acoustic set that shows Sigur Rós in a less grandiose, more delicate light

Fans will love new opportunities to enjoy the band's precious style--precious save for "I Gaer," which starts out like a music-box and builds to dramatic, Pink Floyd-esque guitar-rawk proportions.

The winner is "Hliómalind," a lush rocker that feels perfect at just under five minutes. It's the song here that hints at the band's growth, moving closer to the majestic ebbs and flows of shoegaze than anything they've put to tape.

My favorite song is Hafsol. Bring tears to my eyes every time.


It's a lovingly packaged album, full of regal melodies, stretched choirboy chants, sweeping orchestration and the occasional uplifting crescendo, like everything else in their oeuvre.

Sigur Rós - Í Gær

The music Sigur Ros makes is one that we access with the great depth of our souls and the core of our emotion, and not much other music out there achieves this same affect. not to me at least.




Sigur Ros - Hafsol

Sure it has meaning, but not necessarily in the conventional sense. The meaning is not in the message, but instead it's in the specific emotions it evokes in us.
