I've been crying a lot in the last week

Somehow Sigur Ros have completely evaded my record collection until last Friday when Takk their last album arrived on my doorstep.

Music has always been the best thing to get me blubbing, but this album has just taken it to a differnt ridiculous level. To my ears it's the most emotive heart wrenching stuff I've heard since I was a teenager listeneing to throwing Muses. Anyway for the unititiated or for the fans here's my current favourite.

Six, treat yourself to the DVD - Heima, it's amazing. One disc is the official film relase which lasts 94 minutes, the second disc is everything that was filmed during the making of the film and lasts nearly three hours - it's brilliant.

I've been a fan from the start, thanks to Colin Murray on Radio One, great to welcome another convert to the world of Hopelandic!

Check out the video for Svefn-g-englar it's so emotive.

I hadn't noticed it before Paul (your side bar)...Bjork yes...I just presumed it was all her.

Having camped next to glaciers in Iceland (walking round in 1981...or was it 83?) perhaps I should have known ;-)
