Sigur Ros - Valtari (2012)

In English Valtari translates as "steamroller" and there is something right about the title in terms of the process of its creation. The last three tracks of "Valtari" are like one long slow gorgeous fade out, as the listener, having been softened up by the slightly more "song-y" start to the album, is left with the subtly shifting, deep introspective beauty of the last 24 minutes. After that, penultimate track, Valtari is like the far heart of the album; eight minutes that feel like being alone in row boat on a chill day.
