My US copy is very noisy. Overall sound is very good, but lots of pops and crackles even after cleaning. And indeed, a groove at the end of Side B is locked.

I just bought this and it does not include a download code even though it says so on the sticker. Personally I don't care, but just a warning if some do. Also, my copy on XL sounds great for what it's worth.

I have the US version on XL and it does not sound awful like another reviewer pointed out. Very clean and crisp. Great release.

The US version on XL sounds pretty awful. Pick up the Euro version, if possible.

After a small hiatus, Sigur Rós is finally back with Valtari. The band said that the album would be more electronic, than their previous work, and while they do have a point about that, the only thing that I feel that's electronic, is the ambience and a few ambient textures. Surprisingly, ambience dominates the whole album, and there's hardly any drums, or any guitars for that matter (though they are still there), something which long time fans might have issues with. Personally however, it works amazingly. All of the tracks has a special atmosphere about them, that just pulls you into it's own little world.

Among the standout tracks, are "Varúð," one of the few tracks on the album that has drums and guitars. The track starts out pretty calmly, and gradually builds up to a really epic ending, complete with a childrens choir. "Dauðalogn" is without a doubt the best track on the entire album. Besides being really beautiful, it's really emotional, even if you don't know what Jónsi is singing about.

Overall, Valtari is an excellent album.

This entry needs to be linked to the artist page. Or, rather, when you click on their name above, it goes to the artist page, but this releases isn't listed there in their discography.
