Yeah, so I got Sigur Ros' () today, and I've listened to it a couple of times.... And it sounds boring, especially the latter half of the album, the "rock" songs.... *sigh*
Tori's new album is good, though...

Well, it sounds a lot like the first album... Not much progression. I dunno I might start to like it after time, but now it seems boring. I loved Agaetis Byrjun the first time I heard it, but I don't know if that means anything.
It's going on sale here tomorrow.

You realize that negates everything you said about Sigur Ros in the eyes of at least 75% of the population of this board, right?

you shouldn't, too. Who gives a damn what the high and mighty assholes here think? I personally don't care for Tori's new album, but I won't hold it against you...

Von is good, but I don't know if it's that good.

I was just pointing out that nobody here is going to care what you think of the new Sigur Ros.

I'm quite looking forward to the new Sigur ros album to be honest.

I'm listening to the new godspeed album right now, it's awesome

Ah, like you mean the same way I don't care about anything you or Graveflower write... Now I get it.

I've had it for a few weeks now, just received a proper copy (it looks empty) and the more i listen to it the less i like it. there are only a couple of songs I like, the first one is really great and there are nice parts in other songs but it's really far from being as good as the two previous albums. They did not succeed in conveying all the intensity I felt when I saw them live.

So far, I think it's pretty good. I'm not sure how it will hold up to Agaetis Byrjun and Von in the long run though. I had all these preconceived notions of how some of these songs should sound from hearing them live so many times. I think the last two tracks sound great though.

<font color="CC33CC">You made me giggle.

I listened to it half a time, and I stopped when I could have sworn up and down that the 4th or 5th song = the 1st song. I'll try again tonight.</font>
