Sound — 10
This band is a pure mind f--k. Their sound is like nothing I've heard before. Ths sound of this band is so relaxed and soothing but crazy and trippy all at the same time. Sigur Ros is a band from Iceland, so none of their albums are in English (hell, this one's not even in a real language). But they put out some of the most pure, emotional music ever created.

Like I said, the band doesn't even sing in English. But on this album, the singer just makes up his own language and sings nothing but gibberish. If you listen, it almost sounds like he's making real English words, but he's not. But his singing is so amazing it almost brings tears to my eyes listening to it.

Overall Impression — 10
This album has changed my life. I will never see music the same way again. One of the top tracks is the first one. I say the first one because none of the tracks are named. If your interested in getting something besides that MTV bulls--t, it would be a sin not to get this album.
