Agaetis Byrjun or Takk. Takk is a lot more approachable, while Agaetis is better but full of a whole lot of noise and less pop elements.

I strong No from me, I had never heard of them before I got here, checked them out and would have been just fine to have never heard them at all. I'm not sure I ever liked any of the songs I purchased.

If you're posting in the music forums make sure to be thoughtful and expressive, if you're posting in the lounge ask yourself "is this something that adds to the conversation?" It's important to remember that a lot of people use each thread. You're probably not as funny or clever as you think, I know I'm not.

Not trying to start a silly argument, but could you give me an example because I just don't see the comparison at all.

I've said this before and will say it again. Sigur Ros and most other post rock artists just don't do it for me. Listening to music shouldn't be a task, or a waiting game, or trying to figure out where the music is amongst all the near silence. Who makes music that is essentially nothing? A BAND THAT HAS NOTHING TO SAY OR OFFER. Thats who, if your going to listen to this crap, why not just stop listening to music all together and sit and stare out the window for an hour, save yourself the 14 bucks. What a waste of tape and studio time.

In conclusion I will say, Not just no, but HELL NO.

i don't think they're so much pretentious as inescapably boring.

someone needs to give that idiot a plectrum.
