rejecting their recent pop leanings, they return to their roots to bring back the epic, layered atmospherics that made us fall in love with them in the first place -  this feels like an alternative musical path they didn’t take after 2002’s classic untitled ‘( )’ album.

frequently bereft of formal structures & for large stretches of time more atmospheres than songs, the work – which the band have described as sounding “like an avalanche in slow motion” – offers a counterpoint to the now very familiar & more structured songs on ‘takk’ & ‘med sud i….’. something alchemical occurs when the 4 members of sigur rós are in the room together & while ‘valtari’ is a more “studio based” album than any of its predecessors, the long hours of experimentation & unsentimental editing have yielded incredible results….again.

derry recommends: "back to their roots as they reject their recent pop leanings to bring back the epic, layered atmospherics that made us love them in the first place".
