Svefn-G-Englar by Sigur Ros

This ep begins with the title track, which could be one of the most beautiful pieces of music I have ever heard. With its lifting and falling sound and bowed guitar it constantly impresses with it's gorgeous sound. The rest of the Ep follows suit, and the record never lets down in beauty.

The last two tracks Nyja lagid and Syndir Guds are both from a live performance at the Icelandic Opera House. These songs are just as wonderful as the studio tracks if not more so. I fully believe Sigur Ros needs to release a live album.

The packaging is very nice, with two black sleeves designed to fit inside each other. It's minimalistic and effective, much like Peter Saville's designs for Joy Division and New Order.

I highly suggest this release to anyone who like Sigur Ros, anyone at all. It'd be a good first cd, or just something to tide you over after you've heard all their full lengths. A wonderful Ep that is fully worth the money.
