Sigur Ros (Victory Rose)

If you haven't discovered the powerful, ethereal music of Sigur Ros, you are missing out. This Icelandic band debuted with a track on Vanilla Sky. Their concerts, I am told (by my brother), are among the most moving musical experiences to be had. Chuck full with creation-laden imagery (translated from the native icelandic), Sigur Rose lyrics beckon forth the worshipper in the listener. Though their god(s)falls infinitely short of satisfying the rebelliously infinite void in the soul of man, their music sends you searching, worshipping for the God that does.
