So, the new Sigur Rós album is currently available to stream at last.fm - as long as you have an account, I imagine, and if you don't what are you waiting for? It's the best thing ever.
The album is pretty fuckin' good. It's been a loooong time since I've been excited about Sigur Ros, but this has totally reversed the downward trend they've been on since "( )". It sounds like nothing they've ever done before, yet at the same time it is unmistakably a Sigur Rós album. It's no "Ágætis byrjun", of course, but then again what is? It is, however, an interesting, lovely, and exciting listen and am very very glad to have them back on top of things.
