Product Description
Product Details
Performer Notes
  • Personnel: Maria Huld Markan Sigfsdttir, Slrn Sumerliduodttir, Edda Rn Olatsdttir, Hildur rsaelsdttir (strings).
  • Audio Mixer: Alex Somers.
  • Recording information: AIR Studios; Greenhouse Studios; Sundlaug.
  • The first Sigur Rs album since 2008's Med Sud I Eyrum Vid Spilum Endalaust, Valtari is -- despite its English translation, "steamroller" -- a subtle, understated set in comparison to the Icelandic group's previous releases. Lead single "Ekki Mkk" is indicative of the album's glacial mode, drifting softly on strings, piano, and slight atmospheric textures.
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (p.74) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "[L]ayered, gorgeous...lush with nuanced drift and harmonic sweetness."

Uncut (p.82) - "[A] bewitching record....These eight tracks are rooted in stillness..."

Billboard (p.32) - "[T]here's no denying the impressive dimensions of the often-static sounds here. Nobody gets more excited about a single massive chord than these guys."

Q (Magazine) (p.94) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "The closing track, 'Fjogur Piano,' is a warm smudge of sound, apparently bathed in the glow from a tallow lamp..."

Mojo (Publisher) (p.90) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "'Ekki Mukk' is a gossamer-light, if strangely riveting voice in the wilderness, while 'Vardeldur' drifts agreeably off into softly chiming waves of yearning desolation."
