Biography

The first few seconds of Kveikur begin with what might be the sound of a powerful yet distant conflagration, low flying fighter jets on a bombing mission, or a handheld recording of a large collapsing building; before slamming in with a colossally distorted bass note that says: as much as the first 20 seconds have been unsettling, something ominous and potentially cataclysmic is now ...

Editorial Reviews

Are Iceland’s Sigur Rós the saviors of 21st-century rock or true heirs to the silk-robed-and-platform-booted, pompous progressive rock of the '70s? On their third album (first for a major label), they are a little bit of both. The group continues to mix the most interesting aspects of U2 (the anthem), Low (the maximalist slow-mo thing), Radiohead (the utter lack of irony in the quest to make meaningful art for stadium crowds), and My Bloody Valentine (guitar as texture), while not sounding like anyone else on this planet. The average song length on the eight untitled tracks is eight minutes, with cascades of moaning, bowed guitars colliding with low-end keyboards while the lovely, alien-registered vocals of singer Jónsi float on top. Dynamics are employed spectacularly, but half of the album is spooky soundtrack music that never really goes anywhere. However, the actual songs on Two Sausages Kissing (or whatever you want to call it)--the third, sixth, eighth, and especially fourth tracks--are mind-blowers, spectacularly worth the price of admission. If they just stopped trying to reinvent the wheel all the time, Sigur Rós could really be a band for the ages. --Mike McGonigal

The vocal melodies are great, the guitar melodies are great, the piano melodies are great.
Ranting Sweed
I personally like a lot this group and recommend this CD to anyone who likes excellent and different music like no other.
Kenneth
Very few bands can actually change the way you look at music and the way it can affect you emotionally.

Bassist Georg Holm has once said in an interview that Sigur Ros weren't a political band, and didn't necessarily have too much to say, other than the fact that they wanted to communicate emotion (subconscious, unconscious) through their instruments. Perhaps this is why the band chose to leave absolutely no credits or lyrics in the sleeve for ( ) (2002).
You don't necessarily need written lyrics (or titles) for this intense experience. Just close your eyes, slip into this 72-minute slice of nirvana, and follow whatever feeling states draw to the surface as you listen. Like the icy-looking cover art, this music is the equivalent of a Winter night, and the thoughts and emotions that are conjured with it: cold, beautiful, dreamy, poignant, nocturnal, encircling, haunting and soothing. While the music is "cold," it isn't cold in an unemotional sense, as the album features nothing but overflowing emotion. The soundcapes are mellow, lush and elegant, while the instrumentation is generally used in ambient fashion, which allow certain atmospheres to be created more effectively. And added to this, the tracks are mostly extended, so the album is probably not recommended for listeners who want quick blasts of aggression, or who want short, catchy pop tunes.
As far as my personal interpretation of the album, or what it conjures through me? I see it as an album divided into two halves (which can also be equivalent to the two parentheses): The first four tracks comprising the "(" half seem like the equivalent of a lonely Winter night, featuring a long snow-capped landscape, and the stars shining at their brightest above.

Following their mind-blowing worldwide juggernaut of a record in Agaetis Byrjun, Iceland's Sigur Ros had really no place to go but down. Their second album gained them worldwide acclaim and this record justly was one of the most anticipated of the whole year. '( ),' their major label debut, against all odds, has possibly matched the brilliance of it's predecessor and has expanded the sound of the band into new, even more interesting territories.
'Agaetis Byrjun' was filled with bombastic string arrangements that soared and gave the songs real huge dimensions. This record is amazingly different, in a kind of way I personally thought Sigur Ros wouldn't venture. They've stripped down their sound, but at the same time drawn it into a tight sound that seems just as natural as their previous airy soundscapes. The new compactness relies on the intense percussion of their drummer and then the songs are built off that extremely strong foundation. All the familiar elements of the band are here, but used in new ways. Jonsi's otherworldly androgynous vocals return as does his "hopelandish" (his own self created language) lyrics, that aren't meant to have any literal meaning, but act as another instrument in the sound. When couple with his guitar playing with a bow, it can't be beat.
The record comes with no real title, just usually referred to by the apostrophe shaped cut outs on the albums slip cover. The songs, averaging about 9 minutes, are also untitled. Critics will like to rag on these as pretensions, but it couldn't be more untrue. Sigur Ros like to create, as they themselves call it, a fully interactive music. The listener is able to free their mind of any kind of pre-conceived concept and create their own meanings and lyrics.

REASONS WHY I SHOULD BE MAKING FUN OF THIS ALBUM:
1. The songs have no titles, and the name of the record is "( )"
2. The singer sings in a made-up language that basically consists of him saying "you sat along the fire" and "you're so" in funny ways.
3. There are no liner notes, but rather 12 blank pages that the band insists you write your own interpretation of the nonsensical lyrics on (which translates to "we're lazy, and this makes us look cool and arty").
REASON WHY I CAN'T MAKE FUN OF THIS ALBUM:
1. The minor silliness of the band's ways are FAR outweighed by the pure beauty, emotion, and, at times, power of this album.
This album is absolutely incredible. Take one of the most beautiful things you can think of, and multiply that by 10, and you'll pretty much get the idea of how amazing this album is. None of the songs are shorter than 6 minutes, with most songs on the first half being in 6-8 minute range and the ones on the last half in the 10-12 minute range. They hover for gorgeously extended lengths of time and take time to unfold and completely envelope the listener. ( ) is definitely a headphones album, as well as the quintessential "winter" album, the honor previously held by the Cure with "17 seconds" until I found this one. The first half of this album (or "(" as I like to call it), is light and optimistic, with more emphasis on keyboard than guitar, while the 2nd half (or ")") is bleaker and more melancholic, with more emphasis on guitar (which is played with a cello bow).
