We don't have one person in this forum from Iceland to settle this debate? And of course Agaetis Byrjun is the right album to get first. It means "a good start." Track 2 (I'm not going to bother butchering the names) is one of the most gorgeous soundscapes ever committed to a recording medium.

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.

I started with Takk, then Agaetis Byrjun, then ().

I find Takk is the most accessible. And Glosóli is a beautifil song.

I´m icelandic and the correct way to say it is like in the audioclip in the link on page 1 but the two words are said as one.. None of the letters are silent, remember that... In icelandic it is extremely rare to write down a letter that is not audible when said outloud.

sigur ros is really amazing... i just have gotten into them. the only complaint by me is that their songs sometimes have the same mood.

Many other of the pronuniations are right, it would spell it phonetically like Si-gur Roce, almost silent g and accent on the C.

Can't even remember what direction this thread was taking, but Im steering it back to Sigur Ros live in concert again. I just got home from seeing them play in Manchester. Words can't even begin to address how good they were. To sum up though, the best gig I'll ever see. Ever.

EDIT: In fact no. Its not even justice to call it a 'gig'... more of an 'experience'. They got a huge standing ovation at the end. Awesome.

Sorry for hijacking the thread again... my bad

I would like to see them. I just missed getting tix. I screwed up and found out late that they were going to be at a nearby venue. OOOOOOOOOOOPS. Oh well.... I will see Mogwai at least!

Ya, rub my nose in it why doncha?

I probably would have had tix if I didn't find out a week after the tix went on sale. I just knew about Mogwai being in town. Geez, they're within a week apart, too. Sigur Ros will be performing on a Sat. in T.O. too which would have made it convenient!

Oh well. Hopefully, next time. But, do you know that for Sigur Ros, there are an abundance of scalpers charging into the 100s of dollars?!? What B.S. I hope the members of Sigur Ros find about this if they don't already. I would be peeved! As much as I like them, I'm not going to give some scum who doesn't care about the band double or triple the cost of the tix. In addition, I think Mogwai is better anyway as admittingly, most of Sigur Ros' songs do sound too similar for paying over 200 bucks. Imho, of course. Now, I have automatic msgs go to my mail box if any of those groups have concert dates in my area. A bit late but I'll catch them sometime so they better return!

the g isn't pronounced... but anyway,.. I saw their show last night... **dies in a complete euphoria*, it was incredible,... the music completely overpowered me and I don't think I'll get over it anytime soon. It was as beautiful as music gets

edit: i only just saw 'i strum i drum' 's post, and yes it is an experience to see them live... one like no other. I mean I listen to music almost non-stop, all the different sorts, and still I just couldn't believe what it was doing to me.. It just took me over completely...

for more info, look up www.wikipedia.com, loads of info on them
