    It's pleasant but forgettable on the whole. I'll reserve judgement until the album is out.

    As pretentious of a description as they gave, I can totally hear that in my head, and I like it.

    First impressions, it sounds like the first four tracks from ( ) had a baby with the entire Von album. It sounds beautiful, despite that absolute horrendous quality of the leak. Can't believe it leaked this early.

    It's pretty fuckin' good. Bummed that I'll be away for the Seattle show, but it's far from my list of priorities. Can't see why they won't eventually return here some day though. Until then!

    Where'd you get yours from? I got it from a little demon. And the average bit rate is like 128. It sounds awful.

    I got mine on some blog after googling in the band and album name followed by "zip." I can't tell ya where exactly 'cause I got it and had to jet for a trip. At least I'm pretty sure it's not that low in quality (128). If it's the same as yours then we may have different definitions of what is horrendous.

    In any case I am not impressed by the album. I also feel like they literally could've whipped it up in a month, if they had to.

    I'll spin again, but I just may be over the band.

    Edit: Yeah, I can't see myself buying this record, a first with Sigur Ros for me.

    I'm really enjoying the 3rd song quite a bit. It feels amazing to hear Jonsi using the bow again.

    Man I attempted to get tickets for the LA show and it was sold out instantly. Very similar to the NIN club shows.

    FUCK YOU TICKETFLY!

    I entered in to buy 3 tickets, it said I had them, then after entering my credit card info, it said "processing, do not hit refresh or back on your browser." It hung there for 8 fucking minutes, at which point my priority hold on the tickets expired and I was sent back to their home page.

    This is bullshit. If your servers can't handle the traffic hit from a large act, maybe you shouldn't be selling the tickets, you motherfuckers.

    I hated when that happened to me james during the UC davis NIN show. Im upset about not getting tickets but never got them in my cart. I would be on a whole another level if that happened to me. I'm so so upset right now. Well i guess i can just buy scalped tickets............

    Yeah pretty undewhelmed with the pre-order packages. I was kind of hoping for another Deluxe Edition in the same style as Med Sud's deluxe book.

    Thats a major bummer, but for some reason it doesn't surprise me all that much.

    In other news, the chills that I got (and that you will too) while watching this video are astounding. Whoever made this shit, god fuckin' bless em.

    Photos I took at the Seattle show last night (18 pictures): http://www.flickr.com/photos/3844015...7630995684092/

    Great show, Ágætis byrjun heavy. The public was quiet when the show needed to be quiet (ie. Vaka). I was actually really surprised at how well behaved was the audience. And then the crowd went wild in between songs, they were really into the show. So glad to hear Olsen Olsen. Sound is so rich right now, with 11 people onstage. Not a lot of new songs, only 3. A bit surprising, as this is a tour in support of the new record. All in all a great evening.

    Never underestimate a Sigur Ros crowd, dude. Both times I've seen them and the one time I saw Jonsi's solo show, you could hear a pin drop. Hell, even at Lollapalooza last weekend, everyone who saw them straight up forgot it was a festival and at 4 in the afternoon. I was way up front and everyone up there treated it as if it was a theater show and not a festival, and I had friends who were way in the back say it was just as quiet back there. I've never heard 50,000+ people be so respecting and quiet. It was amazing.
