Sigur Rós - Med Sud I Eyrum Vid Spilum Endalaust


I was so glad this leaked in the past day, I was really looking forward to this album, after listening to the single. I havent heard the entire thing, I am about 5 songs in, but their are some significant changes. First of all is of course the upbeat sound, which apparently is because of a less strict way of making the music (an experiment the band tried for the album). The style shows as the music moves quicker, making the way you listen to Sigur Rós different. As opposed to deep thinking, imagining or creating what the song is about in a trance. The songs hit hard but quickly. I very much like what I have heard so far, and look forward to listening to the rest. Here.

I'm sure as fuck not listening to anything that's got naked guys on the cover, sorry, not my thing.

Wow, I hope that was innernet sarcasm. If not, you don't know what you're missing. This is important, life-changing music. This new album is yet another gift to human consciousness.

Wonderful site!
Is this the version that was ripped from the stream of the album online or the actual album?

I think Pitchfork has a really right-on review of this album actually (I know a lot of people hate Pitchfork):
