Sigur Rós – Gong (2005)


Sigur Rós

An interlude. I came to Sigur Rós late through their first release for a major label, Takk. And while the long player is more famous for some of its instantly recognisable singles (i.e. ‘Hoppipolla’, Glósóli, Sæglópur), it is ‘Gong’ that I choose for its strings, Jonsi’s indecipherable Hopelandic lyrics and a blended Radiohead-Keane complexity. A sheer wonder, much like the album, from whence cometh this masterpiece.
