So, Sigur Ros have a new album.
I figured they were due for one, but didn't know it was just around the corner.


For now, you can listen to a 2-song preview on Spotify. I prefer the second song.

I like the album. Its definitely a more ambient thing that wanders around than anything else. Seems like Jonsi really got influenced by his work on the Riceboy Sleeps album.

I have to say, it's been long road of steadily diminishing returns since "Takk" for me with this band. The live stuff was fine but didn't move things forward. I didn't like the second side of "Meš suš ķ eyrum viš spilum endalaust" at all. Jonsi's first solo album was better but not as consistent as I would have hoped. Haven't heard the new one, but I'm not holding out too much hope that I'll like it as much as their back catalog.

Yeah, I do like the album but I get the diminishing returns comment. For me:
