    I'm giving this album a 3 because there are literally 3 songs on the whole collection. I love Sigur Ros and and I'm always down for moody atmospheric music but this has absolutely no song structure apart from Track 3 (Fantastic) Track 5 (Real Good) and Title Track 9 (Average). Kudos for being different but I don't need an album that is white noise 80% of the time

    A magnificient work! I can't give it anything better than 8 because I can hardly give bonus point for lyrics and music. Their alternative style is awesome but it would be unfair of me to rate it better. Whatever, go and listen to 'Von', it's absolutely stunning! The title-giving track is so unbelievably chilling - it's just awesome! So much feeling without many words (and I didn't even understand them) or melodies. But it's no 9 or 10, because I know that they can do much better. Expand

  1. Based on pure sound, Von is just as much of a treat as the acclaimed follow-up.
  2. The beauteous wash of sound, an otherworldly choir; a dystopian aural experience, both blissfully narcotic and nightmarishly grounding.

    Slower into its stride, with tune-free twittering and dull homages to FX-pedal rock making up the first half. [Jan/Feb 2005, p.123]
