Albumrecensie

Enigmatic Icelanders Sigur Rós' grandiose post-rock sound has become such a ubiquitous presence on the big-screen that it's a surprise it's taken this long for a film director to utilize the magical talents of their frontman Jonsi for an entire soundtrack. Having already licensed three of their songs for 2001's head-scratcher Vanilla Sky, Cameron Crowe was perhaps always going to be the first to take the plunge, even more so considering that the code name of his comedy drama, We Bought a Zoo, was named after the band's 2007 documentary, Heima, and that he regularly played Jonsi's recent solo debut to set the mood for stars Matt Damon and Scarlett Johansson in various scenes. Three of the most anthemic numbers from Go also appear here ("Boy Lilikoi," "Sinking Friendships," "Go Do"), as does Sigur Rós' inescapable signature hit "Hoppipolla," but elsewhere, Jonsi has crafted 11 brand new pieces of music, ranging from short and sweet instrumentals such as the otherworldly cinematics of "Sun" and the wave-crashing, bluegrass-tinged "Humming" to emotionally-stirring orchestral numbers arranged by Nico Muhly ("Whole Made Of Pieces," the title track), to several numbers recorded using a toy piano, including the enchanting, childlike lullaby "Brambles" and the echo-laden, out of tune atmospherics of "Sink Ships." While snatches of ghostly choral harmonies can be heard throughout, only two songs allow Jonsi's unmistakable pixie-esque tones to come to the forefront. "Aevin Endar" is a gorgeously intimate hymn-like ballad featuring a delicate melody which briefly threatens to burst into "White Christmas," while "Gathering Stories" (co-written by Crowe) showcases a rare, intelligible lyrical delivery against a stunning backdrop of clattering percussion and sweeping strings. Despite the several contributions from Go, We Bought a Zoo is more in keeping with his band's experimental symphonies than his own electronica-inspired excursions, suggesting Jonsi should have no trouble slotting back into the Sigur Rós fold for their proposed comeback, but it's still a wonderfully imaginative score which deserves some recognition come awards season. ~ Jon O'Brien, Rovi

Genre: Alternatief

Jaren actief: '00s, '10s

Na zestien jaar zanger/gitarist in de IJslandse post-rockband Sigur Rós te zijn geweest, besloot Jon Thor Birgisson een solocarrière te beginnen en zich om te dopen tot Jónsi. Hij had die naam al wel eens eerder gebruikt, want samen met zijn levenspartner en kunstbroeder Alex Somers had hij, als Jónsi & Alex, in 2009 het album Riceboy Sleeps opgenomen. Maar pas met het album Go, uit 2010, ging Jónsi echt solo. Het debuut bevat wat optimistischere en meer popachtige...
