the best thing that ever happened to music.

not really. I'd say it's a very good album, nothing earth shattering.

<font color="CC33CC">I wanted to love this album so badly. There are a few moments (much less than Agaetis Byrjun or Von) when it shows the potential to be good, but it ends up being directionless and REPETITIVE. Tortuously repetitive. WHY did he sing the SAME FUCKING MADE UP LYRICS IN EVERY SONG?! I can't get it out of my head. It's driving me insane.

I thought the exact same thing when i listened to it for the first couple of times, the feeling faded a little but apart from the first song there's nothing great about this album. They're much better live.

yeah, it is quite a let-down. It's still great but, but can't hold a candle to Agetis Byrijun

Of course they're better live, most of bands are anyways...But no one after hearing it can deny that "( )" it's one of the most superb musical pieces made this year, at least...

Are you sure you listen to the same album as I?

For what I've read and heard it's pretty consensual that it's magnificient...but oh well...you can't please everyone...

The consensual majority is often wrong. Especially when they're trying to look cool, hyping bands or albums that don't deserve it.

The "consensual majority" he's talking about is Spin and Rolling Stone. Let it drop.

well I remember perfectly like 2 years ago, or 1 and half, I came here and i mention Sigur Rós in some thread and u politely replied "wow sigur rós fan" at that time, they're almost unknown...
anyway that's not the point...When I said it's consensual...it was not based on Spin or Rolling Stone, I don't read those...I don't have any idea about they said or not, not interested also. I was refering to people that I know "music lovers" people that listen the same kind of stuff and people that listen Black Metal...people from messageboards such as this.
the fact that now there's a lot of people talking about them, just like what's happening with QOTSA at the moment, doesn't necessarily mean it isn't good...
Btw, why do you think it isn't great?

i've bought quite a few albums. sadly enough, most of the music right now sucks. please list those 20 albums from this year or whatever that is better. just go and listen to your fucking foo fighters, hives or any other crap band instead.

they're even better live, i agree, but the atmosphere of the album is unique. they can never create all those beautiful sounds from the album live. it's got sooooo many beautiful sounds mixed perfectly together. it's just more raw and honest than anything else...

Haha, anyways, yeah, I've agreed with you on basically everything you said. I was really peeved about the same lyric being used over and over as well.

This perfectly sums up the attitude displayed by lots of people posting here....


About Sigur ros: i didn't really like it the first time i heard it, compared to the other two albums. But it has really grown on me, it's excellent.

That's what I like about it too. The more you listen the more you get into it...the more you love you it.

Btw, why do you think it isn't great?

now don't be unfair. I'm not that kind of guy, I don't give a shit about whether or not a band's being talked about. I enjoy listening to good music and I don't give a shit about the context. I think they can do much better than what they've done with (). I don't have anything against the band, it's just that I think that Von and Agaetis Byrjun are better albums than this one.
