Made my day.

I'm excited that they described it as "floaty and minimal." Sounds like it will be more like their older stuff. But everything they release is A+ work.

Usually, I play "Gobbldigook" for friends and their love for Sigur Ros just snowballs from there, but I agree on "Hoppipolla".

This is amazing though; so excited.

Yes! Gobbledigook is the way to go for new listeners. I can't imagine anyone not liking that song.

I obviously have no idea what kind of music you like so this may be a horrible suggestion but I was sort of in the same situation as you at one time. But when I listened to the lead singer's solo album (Jonsi - Go) it absolutely blew me away. Then from there I have really started to love the Sigur Ros albums one by one. I think the album Go is just a little easier to grasp than the Sigur Ros albums. The songs are structured a little more traditionally and a lot of it is in english which helped me out I think. But then it's possible that it just isn't for you!

Just so you all know (and don't ask), this is supposedly just some of the tracklist, and not all the songs that will appear on the album.

Good. Was worried there wasn't enough tracks or they would be very long songs to fill the album. Very stoked anyway.
