I've tried so many times to get into this band, but never have. I guess I'll try again in May.

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.

Rysker6 03/25/12 02:46 PM

I thought they were on break because of their singers career blowing up? Either way, Ill check it out.

CoheedForever 03/25/12 02:55 PM

ÖzgürKurtoglu 03/25/12 04:44 PM

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.

Made my day.

Austin Davis 03/25/12 10:26 PM

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.

recall reality 03/25/12 10:33 PM

Today is a good day.

thesollopsist 03/25/12 10:49 PM

Yes!

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!

Gumbyjag 03/26/12 12:43 AM

This will be badass.

Bruycker 03/26/12 01:09 AM

SOO excited for this.

luke69 03/26/12 01:29 AM

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

JinxRemoving 03/26/12 04:36 AM

Awesome!

Crackbaby 03/26/12 05:32 AM

Yes they are coming to my hometown!!!! Something like this happens maybe every 5 years. Thank you God or whoever.

t00latef0rr0ses 03/26/12 05:52 AM

sweet. more bed time music. Puts me into a deep, restful slumber.

InaGreendase 03/26/12 06:20 AM

Meo seo was my second favorite album in their catalog. Blasphemy, I know, but that means I'm all the more stoked for this album. Even if the descriptions align more with my favorite album (( )).

honestykills 03/26/12 06:36 AM

Wooooooooooooo yes
