Well done!!! And actually their first full length album (more than 3 or 4 songs).

This album kinda stays with you (me at least) and it's hard to listen to it without being moved by one or two songs, like it's suppose to leave some sort of impression on the listener, or change the listeners ideas on how to use different styles of music. At least I can't get enough of this album, it's like someone finally answered my prayers for a band that is doing something almost totally different from what everybody else is doing. Well, on this album it's still a little experimental but the sound is great (when comparing to other bands that are still experimenting). One can hear that immense work was put into this album and it's easy to hear that they are probably the most experienced band in Iceland after Forgarður Helvítis, but they never did what Sólstafir do on this album, these changes or should I say this transformation.
