I've been listening Sigur Ros a little bit lately and can't decide what I think of them--it sounds mostly like background music, but it's really interesting, bizarre-o background music. They're a bit like Bjork and Enya's love child, with maybe a little Travis or Radiohead thrown in for kicks. Anyone here like them? If I were to buy one of their albums which one do you like the most?

The best ever music for falling asleep, or meditation or prayer if you're into that kind of stuff. It's fantastically soothing.

Sigur Ros has been my favorite band for a few years now. I find their atmospheric sound beautiful and complex- because of the recording techniques they use, there's always another layer to be discovered. I would agree that () is their best work, but you might find "Takk" or "Ágætis Byrjun" to be more accessible starting points.

I got to see them in Cleveland during their 2006 "Takk" tour. We bootlegged the whole thing.

If you like Sigur Ros, you'll love this video put together by ASB. It gives me the chills every time I watch it:

Love them.

I love especially "Hoppipolla" and "Hoppipolla Afturabak".

Funny you should mention that. This is what sparked this thread--same song, different images, same chills:

I live in Iceland, I'm from Iceland, and I absolutely hate their music (which is, IMO, not even music)!

Sorry SR fans.

While I do like Sigur Ros, I still have difficulties with the singer's voice.
