Sigur Ros
Hey Everyone .
I searched and couldn't find any thread on Sigur Ros. I saw them about a week ago and they were brilliant. I really can't emphasise on how spectacular their show was and how tight their set was! I absolutely adore 'Agaetis Byrjun' (especially 'Staralfur') and their latest 'Takk...'.
Sorry, if there was already a thread on them and I somehow missed it .

Any fans?

yes, they're probably my favourite band. very hard to define to someone who's not into that sort of music though! words to describe them are beautiful, ethereal, epic, climatic, guitar driven... i've been into them since about 2003, seen the live show twice now, but will hopefully fit a couple more in this year. i can't recommend them enough, this band could change your life

Amazing live set, some of the guys in the audience were so moved they were crying...

I love Sigur Rós! They're coming to this year's Roskilde Festival, I'm def. there! I have the live recording from the almost 'legendary' concert they played when they last visited Roskilde - AMAZING.

I have 3 CD's: Agaetis Byrjun, () and Takk. Right now I love listening to Gong.

actually, if you haven't heard much of their stuff before i'd start off by downloading 'vidrar vel til loftarasa', 'staralfur' or 'glosoli' which are slightly more commercial, or at least easy to get into and fall in love with. then if you like that buy their first album 'agaetis byrjun'.

If I were to be introduced to the wonderful world of Sigur Rós I would DL:

- Olsen Olsen from Agætis Byrjun
- Track 4 (the tracks aren't names on this CD) from () (the CD is titled either!)
- Gong from their newest CD Takk

Most of their songs are good, but these are the most accesible IMO.
