Easily one of the most important albums of the ‘90’s, this is a lovingly handled reissue of an album that really needs no introduction.

By the end of 1999, the year it initially came out, it had won the inaugural US Shortlist Prize for Artistic Achievement in Music. 2019 celebrates the 20th Anniversary of Ágætis Byr-jun, the band expand their breakthrough album with demo and archive versions of songs from the album, plus never-before-heard newly unearthed material from the time, rare b-sides and the full 95 minute concert played in Reykjavík on the day the record was released.
