10th anniversary of Ágætis byrjun
In celebration of today's 10th anniversary of the release of Sigur Rós's Ágætis byrjun, sigur-ros.co.uk has put up a mini-site with memories, outtake sound clips, and videos. I first heard "Svefn-g-englar" in 2000 and immediately ran to the long-gone Other Music in Harvard Square to pick up an import copy. It completely blew me away in a way that I don't think an album has in its first listen since. If you haven't checked it out yet, now's the time.
