  1. ( ) is interesting in that the both artwork and the music are quite cold and removed (I feel). Unfortunately, those two things work ultra well for the artwork, and not so much for the actual music.

    I wanted ( ) to be so much more than it ended up being…

  2. I’ll confess that this is another of a small, but gradually increasing number of purchases I made for the packaging alone… Sigur Ros sound to me a little too like an Icelandic version of Radiohead for my taste. That’s based, I’ll confess, on only a limited amount of listening. I intend to make more of an effort with them at some point though.

  3. The more I listened to them, and the more I saw them live (three times), the more I found myself only listening to Ágætis byrjun. Not totally sure why, but maybe I got tired of the gimmick, and wanted something more. Or maybe because they ruined concerts for me because when I saw them in 2001, few people still knew who they were and SR ended up putting on the most mind blowing concert I’ve ever attended.

    I know there are many people that love this album, but it just felt like such a let down after Ágætis byrjun…

    One thing to note for this release (just remembered this) is that each region it was released on received different artwork. Europe, America, Australia & Japan (and surrounding areas) all received its own version…

  4. I doubt Radiohead would have pulled out some of the tricks SR pulled out on Von…

    Anyway, love the snow white looks of the package. It fits the music perfectly.

  5. The cover and packaging are beautiful, but as the last comments, I think this CD is not one of the best Sigur Ros’ records. However I would love to have this edition definetely. It’s a shame that some editions never come to Mexico.

  7. strange how this album gets a relatively bad press, it’s by far my personal favourite. the design is maybe a tad too impersonal for the music, but certainly a far better fit than the cover of ágætis byrjun was to the music it enclosed. as for von… well… they were only knee high to a grasshopper at that point, all is forgiven!

  8. I’m agreeing heavily with the last comment. I can’t believe that anyone could find this to be a disappointing album! Yes it’s different to Ágætis and in retrospect that’s a very good thing as they went back to happy happy symphonic melodious stuff after this so now we have only this sole SR album to turn to when we want a solid hour of deep, dark melancholia…

  20. I was curious if you ever thought of changing the layout of
    your blog? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.

    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content
    so people could connect with it better. Youve got
    an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two
    pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?
