My 25 Favorite Artists of the 2000s - #12

#12 - Sigur Ros

When I first heard Sigur Ros' Agaetis Byrjun I sincerely had no idea what stratosphere this music had come from. It sounded like an angel singing from inside a womb, which strangely enough just so happened to be exactly what the album cover depicted. The band uses a made-up version of their native language (they're from Iceland) they call Hopelandic, allowing the vocals to basically just act as another instrument in the mix of violin-bowed guitars, drums, and pretty much every brass symphonic instrument known to man. This mix allowed for some of the strangest and most beautiful music of the decade.

My Favorite Albums:
1. Agaetis Byrjun
2. ( )
3. Takk....
