What is so fancy about the 60 version?

Deluxe Edition: This exquisitely presented deluxe edition is a unique document of the creation of Sigur Rs' fifth album in film, photography and music. Given unprecedented access to the final stages of the making and release of the group's new album, photographer Eva Vermandel and film-maker Nicholas Abrahams create an intimate and revealing portrait of the Icelandic quartet at work on their most immediate record to date.

Housed in a large-format, fine weave cloth-bound hardback book, the deluxe edition comprises nearly 200 pages of fine art photographic images, as well as an impressionistic film portrait of Sigur Rs, as they record, mix and master "Me su eyrum vi spilum endalaust". Locations include New York, London, Mexico, Reykjavik and beyond, and take in the filming of the 'Gobbledigook' video, tour rehearsals, the early shows on the tour, as well as exclusive band interviews relating to the record.

Each edition is individually numbered and includes a unique strip of 16mm film taken from the video Gobbledigook as well as the DVD and album.

192-pages. 300 mm x 240 mm. Includes CD of "Me su eyrum vi spilum endalaust" and exclusive DVD.

Sigur Ros

Heard a bit of Gobbledigook on Radio 1 the other night. Felt really weird hearing it on mainstream radio, but then again it was Zane Lowe.

I'll be getting the album, just not the 60 version. I'm nae made of money.

easily. like i said, the song in english is incredible. it's about when jonsi cheated on his (then) boyfriend and all the guilt he feels etc.

really minimalistic, but brilliant.

and ra btur is the most uplifting thing in the world. it should automatically play if people are atop everest.

This is indeed a fine album.

Though its not to the level of gtis byrjun (which IMO is their greatest work) its a great album and sounds like a natural progression from Takk.

Im looking forward to seeing them in London in a week or so.

They are fantastic live.

The London gig is in a church and one of their best performances I have seen was at a church in Edinburgh, hopefully the London gig will be as good.

i tried listening to this this morning

i only made it through the first few songs, it just made me really annoyed

i thought it sounded like an odd cross between sigur ros and animal collective

if i listen to it again, all the way through, will it annoy me less question%20mark.gif

But it is Sigur Ros...

Why'd it annoy you?!

I'm only through one listen of one track and I'm already loving it!! So uplifting!

the track entitled ra btur is incredible.

It's breathtaking... Gives you goosebumps and makes your heart beat faster... Is that possible?!

Absolutely breathtaking stuff. Just on my second listen through now and agree that Ara Batur and the English-song are both beautiful. Definitely feels like a progression rather than any sort of radical shift but then with Sigur Ros I think that's what you want. A natural, organic change suits them and their music best.

I have listened to the new album solidly for the past two days and it may be my favourite album of all time.

They have perfected their art.
