Amazing release. High quality and super cool cover art. Then you open the gatefold and see the rest of it and it gets even better.

Then you pull out the black inner sleeves and see they don't just fit the dark theme but are also anti-static polylined.

Then you hear the records themselves and can't find a single fault. Brilliant pressing.

And then you see the CD that's included and think, wow, if only every vinyl release was like this.

You don't need all this plastic (and cash) to own the Kveikur instrumentals. Head over to https://sigurros.bandcamp.com/album/kveikur-instrumental

Dark and beautiful album. Pressing sounds great and the artwork looks great!

I was wondering... Is anyone selling only the 10'' ?

second disc is disappointing in it's dynamics. perhaps it's the recording. disc one is better. it may well be that this is an example of how digital stuff doesn't translate so well to vinyl... will update this if I change my mind. But this is my initial synopsis.

What a wonderful work out for your music system! One of the most percussive sounding of all the sigur ros lps and the most metallic too! It has a wingspan that is wide and voluptuous! If you thought this band had already emptied their treasure chest of wonders think again. Three years on I am still surprised how utterly fresh and innovative these songs are from a band that had offered up pearls many times before. How lucky we are that music people give their time to sharing such great moments of sound. Thank you Iceland :)

i was lucky enough to get one copy via presale. i was kind of nervous to open it. here is the result: the very good point: only here you get all the instrumental tracks of the album. point. the artwork by itself is just great. point. The sound quality is about the best, Sigur Ros ever offered to the fans. point. BUT: it is frustrating, why the cover are THAT thin. no point here.

This is kind of treatment great album is deserved! Beautiful packaging, atmospheric weird artwork, and no unnecessary things. Although I wish, they include lyrics sheets. You don't want to actually play those, at least frequently (unless you have laser turntable:P), it's thing of beauty and art
Thanks Sigur Ros for the great album, it's new exciting direction of much loved band's music

I wonder how many people actually play this. Or even opened it. I do! The pressings sound sublime, the artwork is amazing. You should try it too! :-)
