It's the pauses that make this recording, after seeing him perform in Manchester many years ago, the pauses and timing improve it all. Not too keen on the Rainwater strings, they are a bit hands in the air aggressive for me. The piano played by Johannsson shines like luminescent coral in a black cave underwater. The title of the album could have been taken from any song title by Matthew Sweet. One of his best albums to listen to as a whole.

After carefully listening to Jóhan's entire discography this morning, I have chosen this album, Bees, as his most effective musical expression of the emotive thematic passages that manifest across his output. And despite this phenomenal young composer's consistent quality and brushes with genius apparent in his every release, still Bees stands out as the best. At least IMHO. A brilliant release

This CD was also sold at his UK shows in 2010. I bought my copy in the Grand Opera House, Leeds 29 May 2010. It was advertised then as 'Last few copies'.

This album is absolutely incredible. I picked it up on a whim without hearing any audio samples, just because I liked his IBM 1401 album so much, and this one blows everything else I've heard from him away. It is soft, powerful, romantic, sad, lonely, warm and inviting.

I buy and listen to records almost daily now, and this is by far the most listened to album I've picked up in the last two years on vinyl. It is beautiful, and should not be as overlooked as it is.

This mini album, limited to just 1000 copies, was only sold while Jóhann Jóhannsson was on his US tour. At under 37 minutes, the eleven tracks are taken from the Jóhannsson’s award-winning score for Marc Craste’s animated film Varmints. Here are gentle strings and beautiful modern classical piano arrangements wrapped in light electronic processing that Jóhannsson is known for. His 2008 release Fordlandia left many critics in standing ovation. And this short soundtrack does not disappoint. The production is top notch with a performance from City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra and Chorus, and beautiful ghostly vocals from Michaela Srumova. Released on NTOV Phonoautogram, this is a must have for every fan. And you’ve got to see the animation!
