Was in HMV in Middlesbrough today and noticed this bargain. Track 5 Festival is in my opinion the best song they have done.

HMV ought to do this more.

Where can I find the lyrics to these songs?
#5
Many (most) of Sigur Ros' lyrics have no meaning they are a "made up" language. Don't know if this album is.
#6

This isn't exactly true, Jonsi writes the lyrics in a regional dielect of icelandic rather than just being 'made up'. There are lyrics and their translations to english over the web, a quick google will bring them up.

Oh, and 'Ara Batur' - recorded with a 60 piece orchestra at Abbey Road is a masterpiece and an amazing swan song for Sigur Ros. Not sure if Sigur Ros will come back together after Jonsi has gone off doing his solo stuff.

Brilliant, brilliant album. It can go from a beautifully quiet ambience to a towering crescendo of melodies in a heartbeat. Truly stunning. I wasn't fortunate enough to see them perform live, but I've got tickets for Jonsi in a couple of weeks time, can't wait!

True on this album. There are 2 songs in 'hopelandic' (made up language/noises), there is 1 songs in English (the last one) and the rest are in Icelandic.

I seen Sigur Rós live in Manchester about 3 or 4 years ago. One of the best gigs I've ever been to.

I stand corrected :(
"what language does jónsi sing in?
on von, ágætis byrjun and takk, jónsi sang most songs in icelandic but a few of the songs were sung in 'hopelandic'. all of the vocals ( ) are however in hopelandic. hopelandic (vonlenska in icelandic) is the 'invented language' in which jónsi sings before lyrics are written to the vocals. it's of course not an actual language by definition (no vocabulary, grammar, etc.), it's rather a form of gibberish vocals that fits to the music and acts as another instrument. jónsi likens it with what singers sometimes do when they've decided on the melody but haven't written the lyrics yet. many languages were considered to be used on ( ), including english, but they decided on hopelandic. hopelandic (vonlenska) got its name from first song which jónsi sang it on, hope (von). tracks 7-9 on takk are in hopelandic."
