iTunes Editors' Notes

Translation: With a Buzz in Our Ears We Play Endlessly. This mysterious Icelandic ensemble’s fifth album moves even further towards conventional instrumentation and composition, featuring distinctly audible lead vocals and instruments, short, memorable melodies, and moments where their ambient, mystical frozen soundscapes are abandoned for what sounds like an actual band playing in a small room. “Gobbldigook” opens things as if they were a pop group. From there the washes of sound deepen, but only occasionally blur into the ambient mode of the band’s earliest releases (though the ethereal pace of the nine-minute “Festival” comes close, and the placid pulse of “Straumnes” and “All Alright” qualify). Shades of Radiohead, orchestral pop, film noir and even a haunting of the Beach Boys’ high harmonies can be picked up in the mix. “Vid Spilum Endalaust” sounds like a ‘90s sadcore anthem. “Ara Batur,” another nine-minute maelstrom, begins at the piano and builds gradually until the London Sinfonietta and London Oratory Boy’s Choir take things to an epic scale. “Illgresi” is a straightforward acoustic ballad. “Fljotavik” soars on a ghostly falsetto. Still a band of much natural and supernatural beauty.

Customer Reviews

admirable departure from their slow-burn formula...

but you should download the digital album from sigur ros' site. It's cheaper ($8.00), better quality (320kbps), and Digital Rights Management free.

Epic. Astounding.

No iTunes review here yet so: the album title translates as “with a buzz in our ears we play endlessly.” Gobbledigook – could there be a more joyous sounding, celebratory song?!! LOVE the drums and the “lalalalalalala…” If you’re feeling good, this song will just make you feel even better. If you’re in a funk, this song would succeed in pulling you out of it…that can be said for a number of songs on this album. Inní mér… - another celebratory, happy one. Awesome piano & strings. About halfway though, this song gets richer, more multi-layered. Towards the end, the horns come in big time…wonderful! Gódan daginn, Íllgresi and Fljótavík (amazing strings) are such quiet, beautiful songs. Vid spilum endalaust - very upbeat & uplifting. Wicked bass, drums, and horns – they’re all the highlight here (horns in particular.) Piano and vocals are really lovely as well. Festival – a stunner and a favourite. For the first 4+ minutes, it just some hushed music and Jonsi’s voice like a choirboy: it’s here you are strongly reminded that he is so incredibly blessed; such a gift that we are able to hear this. At about the 4.40 mark the song changes dramatically, the bass and rapid drums kick in and are mind bending. The song just builds happily from here with a sweet, whistling end. Listen and marvel! Med sud… - lovely, lovely – drums & piano the highlights Ára bátur– the absolute favourite. Amongst the most beautiful and compelling compositions ever. I read some info. on this track: it was performed/recorded in one take, with a live orchestra and the London Oratory Boys Choir. 90 people performing flawlessly in one take at 8:57 long! At around the 7.44 mark and onwards: an unbelievable musical moment. Straumnes – all instrumental; like a reflective moment in your life All Alright – their first track in English. It’s almost surreal to hear it, so used the Icelandic & Hopelandic.…Jonsi’s voice is breathy and hushed…lovely…musically a little sombre, the piano is so amazing, like tiptoeing around a dark house…lovely horns… …a joy, a pleasure, from start to finish, as anticipated. The cover artwork is by Ryan McGinley and comes from his exhibition titled ‘I Know Where the Summer Goes.’ Perfect for this carefree, refreshing, bright album.

An album for all moods...

An interesting mix of unusually up-tempo and traditionally slow melodic songs from Sigur Ros. Not quite as accesible as "Takk" was, but much more joyous than the great, but melancholic, ( ) . Fantastic work, as usual.

Biography

Formed: January, 1994 in Iceland

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '90s, '00s, '10s

Named in part after a sister of one of the bandmembers, Reykjavik, Iceland's Sigur Rós (Victory Rose) was formed by guitarist and vocalist Jón Þór Birgisson (who later went by the name Jónsi), bassist Georg Holm, and drummer Ágúst Ævar Gunnarsson. Formed in early 1994 while the members were teenagers, the trio's first recorded song earned them a deal with Iceland's Bad Taste label. Their sprawling debut LP, Von (Hope), was released in 1997, followed the next year by a collection of remixes from that...
