Reykjavík-based noise quartet Sigur Ros are the biggest band in their native country, Iceland, which says much about the collective insanity of that earthquake-ridden, blizzard-beaten crag of an island than anything to do with Sigur Ros’ sound. But in their music, Sigur Ros reflect all the breathtaking glory of the Icelandic wastes, a fairy-tale explosion of unhinged elemental majesty that’s finally crystalised here, as Agaetis Byrjun is a truly breathtaking album. Frontman Jon Por Birgisson sings in a language that Sigur Ros dub Hopelandic, an otherworldly mutation of Icelandic, sung in the falsetto and similarly, he plays his guitar with a violin bow, opening the floodgates for brilliant waves of feedback. And while it’s the opening “Svefn-G-Englar” that’s Sigur Ros’ defining moment to date, there’s far more that Agaetis Byrjun has to offer, from the pomp and flourish of a full orchestra on “Flugufrelsarinn”, to the awe inspiring and quasi-religious mantra of “Ny Batteri”.
