Sigur Ros - Valtari (2012)
This album is possibly the best one from the post-rock titans since Agaetis Byrjun. Each song creates an incredible soundscape full of myth and wonder. Jonsi's majestic vocals once again soar into the stratosphere are you're transported into bliss. The band went for a decidedly ambient approach on this album, and that is what makes it so consistent as compared to the relative inconsistency of Meo suo... This is an incredible album that should be high on any post-rock fan's end of the year list.
