going to have a listen to it on Spotify, cheers for the recommendation. I think you are missing out on a lot if you think anything 'foreign' isn't good!

The lyrics are all nonsense apparently. From Wikipedia:

Vonlenska is a term used to describe the unintelligible lyrics sung by the band,[24] in particular by Jón Þór Birgisson. It is also commonly known by the English translation of its name, Hopelandic. It takes its name from "Von", a song on Sigur Rós’s debut album Von where it was first used.

Vonlenska is a non-literal language, without fixed syntax, and differs from constructed languages that can be used for communication. It focuses entirely on the sounds of language; lacking grammar, meaning, and even distinct words. Instead, it consists of emotive non-lexical vocables and phonemes; in effect, Vonlenska uses the melodic and rhythmic elements of singing without the conceptual content of language. In this way, it is similar to the use of scat singing in vocal jazz. The band’s website describes it as "a form of gibberish vocals that fits to the music";[25] it is similar in concept to the 'nonsense' language often used by the Cocteau Twins singer Elizabeth Fraser in the 1980s and 1990s. Most of the syllable strings sung by Jón Þór Birgisson are repeated many times throughout each song, and in the case of ( ), throughout the whole album.

Not sure about the lyrics but the music is haunting and beautiful!

So in summary, it's arty-farty garbage that it's reckoned 'cool' to be a listener of until history shows it up for what it really is.

I'll pass on this.

Now where's me Showaddywaddy LPs?

And unaware that we vote on the deal and not whether we like it or not.

This ISN'T an album cover you want coming up on your iPod when you're on some sort of public transport though (I know from experience). The elderly think you are queer, youngsters think you're a pervert and anyone in between may well call the police.

Voted hot for the music though, lovely!


At work my US internet radio station plays Blind Faith and shows the original cover, and you think you have problems.

I dont think anyone is considered cool for listening to Sigur Ross. Its just simply enchanting, heartfelt music. Youve totally missed the point.

This band is awesome. Jonsi's solo album is worth a listen as well.
#34
I've really enjoyed listening to some samples of this album via

I'm off to Iceland in June so I'll get this so that I can appear to be culturally knowledgable.
Cheers

Such a subjective topic as music, like art, is open to so much interpretation that your comments bear no weight.

There are those who would gladly pay a fortune for a tissue that Tracy Emin had just gobbed in, but I'm not one of them.
