    Or With a Buzz in Our Ears We Play Endlessly for those not speaking Icelandic. The album number 5 by the Gwyneth-Paltrow-approved post-rockers kicks off with fantastic **** one of their best singles ever, an ode to life as it is. Inní mér syngur vitleysingur is also charming but this is not enough to call Með suðâ

    More breathtaking stuff from Jonsi and co although I do think the first half of this album is noticably stronger than the second. Overall - pretty majestic stuff. More of the tracks start slow and build up to a big cresendo thatâ

    Besides their fellow Icelander Björk, Sigur Rós has innovated and redefined the boundaries and borders or music. Sigur Rós' latest album packs all the energy and exuberance their biggest fans can excite to. Stand-out tracks are the opener "Gobbledigook" and epic "Festival."

    As DayneB already said it - the 5th studio album of the Icelandic band features every kind of emotion perfectly. Nearly every song on 'Með Suð Í Eyrum Við Spilum Endalaust' is loveable and I adore the feeling this album brings up in you. Jónsi's voice and the band's songwriting are chimerical and I absolutely love this release. Especially because you've got those two aspects back again that were mostly missing in their former work. 'Með Suð...' is pure awesomeness in one CD and you have to listen to it if you haven't yet! Expand

  1. So Med Sud I Eyrum Vid Spilum Endalaust is just another Sigur Ros album, but if I can be the first to say it, our "first vital band of the 21st century" is starting to feel old hat.
  2. On Med Sud I Eyrum Vid Spilum Endalaust you can really hear the human hearts behind the wall of sound, and while the emotional impact is on a smaller scale, somehow it is even more affecting.
  3. Once, this band were making music to stare skywards to, to contemplate the vastness of the universe we’re such a tiny part of; now they’ve discovered a hidden reserve of human spirit, sucked it in and produced a record that will reconnect their wealth of talents to listeners fearing they’d forgotten how they’d ever reached such a lofty pedestal. It’s great to have them back.
