With A Buzz In Their Ears They Play Endlessly


SIGUR Ros's fifth studio album Með suð í eyrum við spilum endalaust is exactly what you expect from Sigur Ros.
It's an acheingly beautiful melange of ambient, classical, indie and folk influenced post-rock and a worthy addition to their back catalogue.
However, although the album is, as the artwork suggests, a slightly stripped down version, this is nothing desperately new from the Icelandic four-piece, despite Nine Inch Nails producer Flood on board.
Ultimately Með suð í eyrum við spilum endalaust - which translates as "With a Buzz in Our Ears We Play Endlessly" - pushes as many envelopes as an unemployed postman, which is disappointing for a group which were so fresh and inventive five undeniably spectacular yet spectacularly-similar albums ago.
