Sigur Ros

We figured out how to say it. Stop telling me!

Also, what album should I get first? Takk? I had it in my hands today, and didn't buy it. I might later...

I say it "Sigger Roas" (like roast minus the "t")

As for albums, the only one I own is Takk...., so I'll recommend that, but I can't really compare it to any others. It's very good though.

I thought it was Sig-or Roes

Buy Mogwai instead. I'm kidding. I don't listen to them, I dunno.

buy agætis byrjun first!!! can't say that enough. the other albums are good, but disappointing standing next agætis byrjun.

and from the sigur ros website, it's "si-ur rose" (the i is like the i in "hit". "rose" is said very quickly) (as someone else pointed out)

a side note, i saw them live last week and can honestly say that years of built up expectations couldn't have prepared me for how amazing it was.

I bought Agaetis Byrjun first and it was alright...but then I bought ( ) and I preferred it endless amounts. It was just a bit more bleak, I think. It sounded that way to me, anyway. The first three tracks and then number 6 are outstanding.

Someone on here once said they were pronounced Sig-Urgh Rose, but personally I stick to sig-ur ross, it's easiest and most people will understand.

That's when you know you found somebody special. When you can just shut the f*ck up for a minute, and comfortably share silence.

IsThereLove has it.

j'adore ( ) and Takk... and Agaetis Byrjun.

i saw them in early february.
i could never describe the level at which my breath was taken away. it would do them no justice.

Don't get "Takk...". (IMO) It really isn't great.

they signed over for takk. probably going to end up being the worst decisions they ever make. but if trying to get the new album out to the masses was why they did so, then that proved successful. their fan base is huge and growing thanks to takk.

...even if it's their worst album
