Sigur Rós • Agaetis Byrjun [2xLP+CD]
Agaetis Byrjun by Sigur Rós on double 180g vinyl.
InfoÁgætis byrjun is the second album by Icelandic post-rock band Sigur Rós, released on June 12th, 1999. Ágætis byrjun was recorded between summer of 1998 and spring of 1999 with producer Ken Thomas and became the band's breakthrough album, both critically and commercially. Ágætis byrjun represented a substantial departure from the band's previous album Von, with that album's Cocteau Twins-esque dream pop and extended ambient soundscapes replaced by Jónsi Birgisson's now signature cello-bowed guitarwork and lush orchestration, using a double string octet amongst other orchestral elements. — source
