Tobia, glad you're liking.
The diversity and creativeness of music and musicians just never stops to amaze me.

I love this song. Kind of hard to explain why, i just do.
I guess the fact that it's beautiful is good enough.

The gospel on the state of time, music, technology and life.



The golden age of analog recording was created, more than less, by a nuclear physicist, Tom Dowd, who worked on the Manhattan Project. He was also the first recording engineer to produce records in stereo. Moving from music, to war, back to music. Creative irony.

drjefe, you like it because it's good (the Sigur Ros).

Not to many genres of music I don't like; but an awful lot of music I might only listen to once and sometimes can't get through at all.

Balaena universus hominis ≈ Whale Song

i have to see sigur ros live before i die. i like that live version of "olsen olsen" better than the one on the album. the movie that it's from, Heima, is really really good. one of the better band docs i've seen.

thanks for the tip weezy.

That song is special.
A bit about the lyrics-

Vonlenska is the non-literal language that forms the unintelligible lyrics sung by the band,[43] Jnsi in particular. It is also commonly known by the English translation of its name, Hopelandic. It takes its name from "Von", a song on Sigur Rss debut album Von where it was first used.
Vonlenska has no fixed syntax and differs from constructed languages that can be used for communication. It focuses entirely on the sounds of language; lacking grammar, meaning, and even distinct words. Instead, it consists of emotive non-lexical vocables and phonemes; in effect, Vonlenska uses the melodic and rhythmic elements of singing without the conceptual content of language. In this way, it is similar to the use of scat singing in vocal jazz. The band's website describes it as "a form of gibberish vocals that fits to the music";[44] it is similar in concept to the 'nonsense' language often used by Cocteau Twins singer Elizabeth Fraser in the 1980s and 1990s. Most of the syllable strings sung by Jnsi are repeated many times throughout each song, and in the case of ( ), throughout the whole album.

All of the lyrics on ( ) are sung in Vonlenska, also known as Hopelandic, a constructed language without semantic meaning, technically glossolalia, which resembles the phonology of the Icelandic language. It has also been said that the listener is supposed to interpret their own meanings of the lyrics which can then be written in the blank pages in the album booklet.
