Return to form!
Posted by: jabba359 from: on
After the disappointment of their previous CD, I was happy to see Sigur Ros abandon the pop-driven nature of that album and return to the darker, glacial texture of their earlier endeavours. Embracing the multi-layered, atmospheric sound that permeates Agaetis Byrjun and ( ), this album once again transported me away to the beautiful Icelandic landscapes that this band harkens from. Beautiful and fragile at moments, powerful and dark at others, I heartily recommend this album to fans old and new.

Very good ambient album

While it may not be their best, Valtari is still another good album by Sigur Ros. It doesn't have the same intensely epic qualities as the rest of their work and most songs lack a crescendo or strong ending, but if you love Sigur Ros for their lush, other-worldly ambiance, this album is a must-own.
