Saeglopur – Sigur Ros

I need to come up with an word or phrase for a song in which you need to close your eyes to fully enjoy. Suggestions? This is definitely one of those kind of songs. I also recommend having good speakers or headphones. I started listening to this song on my computer speakers but it just wasn’t satisfactory so I had to put on my earphones.

This song is like a wave of sound (not to be mistaken for a wall of sound). I starts off quiet and less complex and then builds in sound and complexity as it washes over you. And as the song ends it recedes again.

I am not sure if there are actual lyrics, if there are they are in a language I am unfamiliar. But the singing is still heartbreakingly beautiful. It is packed with emotion even though I can’t understand it.
