facts:

The CD “Ágætis Byrjun” (an alright start) got this band on their way to fame over the next two years, from word of mouth.
The Follow up album, ( ) (referred to as “untitled”), was a major hit. It is said that the listener is supposed to listen to each song and interpret their own meaning of the lyrics, then write them on the blank pages of the album booklet.
Untitled #4 (Njósnavélin) appeared in the film Vanilla Sky; Other music by them has also appeared in the hit television series 24.
The Band first became well known from the unique way Birgisson played his guitar, with a bow from a cello, to create a sound that is unique for an electric guitar.

Overall, a great band. None of the lyrics are in english...but I believe that makes every song even better, its like the voice becomes an instrument in the music.
Sigur Ros is my favorite band.
