Sigur Rós has always impressed me but I've never truly listened to them until this album. Though it is unpronounceable and in Icelandic, Sigur Rós amazes me as always. This time, they stray from their minimalistic post-rock sound and develop more melodic guitar lines and upbeat sounds from their previous album. The music video fro Gobbledigook is people partaking in nudism and running around naked. It sparked controversy because it actually shows private parts, the cover also shows nudity. I do say that the nudity expresses the free feeling that the listener receives when listening to this album.
