iTunes Review

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

Universally compelling

The physician and biologist, Richard Thomas, said that we should send recordings of Bach out into the Universe to let other life forms know who we are. He remarked that "we'd be bragging but we should send our best." I believe that, had he lived to hear Sigur Rós, he might have considered their music as a worthy "B" side.


I never bother to write reviews on iTunes, mostly because I don't bother to listen to anyone else regarding musical taste. Having said that, though, if you are someone who happens to listen to reviews regarding your favorite genres or bands, listen here: Sigur Ros' new album is one of the most breathtaking albums I have ever purchased. I strongly recommend; nay, I'm telling you -- buy this album. If you are a true Sigur Ros fan like I, and have been following their growing career for the past few years, then your sir/ma'am will truly find this album engrossing and mesmerizing.


Perhaps there is other intelligent life somewhere out there in the universe... perhaps there are infinite other worlds of intelligent beings somewhere out there... but if there aren't, and Earth is the only jewel of the cosmos that incubates intelligent life that creates this beautiful thing called Music, then I believe Sigur-Ros is the Greatest Band IN THE ENTIRE UNIVERSE!!!!! "Med Sud..." is another MAGICAL, WONDROUS album from these Icelandic marvels!!!!! Full of great joys for Summertime...


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...
