A faceless band with a new record that is titled with only a set of parentheses can only make you wonder more about who is really behind this band. But then you give it a second thought and realize that you do not need to know anything more about this Sigur Ros except for the fact that they make the most amazing music in the world.
Besides Bjšrk, this group is the only good thing to come out of Iceland in a while. Armed with beautiful melodies that float into your senses like a fresh breeze and vocals that are almost angelic, Sigur Ros make the most relaxing music to help anyone unwind.
Although the album is only eight tracks long, you would never realize it if you were not staring at your CD player. The album is so full and flows so smoothly that the transitions are not easily heard.
The group's last album, Agaetis Byrjun, was a journey into the unknown of sound and eclectic lyrics and ideas that somehow came together to form a complete idea. Now on ( ) Sigur Ros delves further into the realms of thought and snatches up tidbits of our broken souls and weaves them back together, leaving us feeling complete once again.
Enjoy substance again and find out what Sigur Ros is all about.
