Top Twenty of 2013. Number 6 – Sigur Ros – Kveikur

If you had said to me at the start of this year that Sigur Ros would have made my end of year list I would have definitely told you that would be unlikely.  Don’t get me wrong, I have always loved Sigur Ros but after the initial brilliance it has always felt like they were in cruise control and just churning out the thing they were good at.  It all felt a bit lazy and predictable.  Well, Kveikur is far from predictable.  In fact, it’s simply a brilliant return to form that does see them push themselves away from their comfort zone and into a darker territory.   A total triumph from a band who have floated along for far too long.  Let’s hope this is the sign of things to come with future records.
