Review Summary: Greatness yet again.I often forget that Sigur Rós is indeed a vocal-led band. For this rather sheltered American suburban kid, it’s easy to see why, as Jón Birgisson sings in Icelandic, a language spoken by just over 300,000 people, or in “Hopelandic”, a language spoken by himself but felt by anyone who hears him sing in it. Especially while singing in Hopelandic, Birgisson’s voice sounds both incredibly human and incredibly ambiguous at the same time.

Feted by Chris Martin and the soundtrack of choice for BBC Sport, Sigur Rós are consolidating their position as everyone's favourite Icelandic band with their most accessible album so far. From the CD's buttock-adorned cover to the sunshine-dappled pop inside, they've ditched introverted moodiness and discovered frivolity and freedom. Gobbledigook is a jigsaw of colourful percussion and impatient rhythms, Inní Mér Syngur Vitleysingur bubbles like a warm geyser.

As many fans as Sigur Rós has, there’s a large contingent of people who are bored to tears by the group’s sweeping soundscapes. Thanks to this more accessible sixth record, now everyone can enjoy the Icelandic foursome. Med Sud I Eyrum Vid Spilum Endalaust, or With A Buzz In Our Ears We Play Endlessly, finds the group in full-out pop music mode, with infectious vocals, three-minute tunes and a new approachability.
