    General CommentI agree, really beautiful song. But is it just me or is there one point where the vocals are pretty much identical to Glosoli. Ah well, nice song.

    My OpinionAh god. This song. I couldn't even begin to explain how perfect it is, If there were degrees of perfection, this would be the ultimate.

    General CommentAnother of my favourite Sigur Rós songs.
    It's just.. incredible. Completely beyond words.

    I think it was written for one of the band members daughter? I can't remember, someone close's child anyway. C:

    General CommentThis is one of my favorite Sigur Ros songs. For me, it's all about the final buildup, starting at about 5:05. From here it's like a massive climax. Jonsi just continues to sing higher and higher and higher, and the music swells and swells. And then at 5:36 he hits the climax, and it's just so beautiful. The immediate let down of the music and singing just underscores how powerful it really was.
