Some ginger to spice up your musical life

Advantages: A diverse range of songs delivered by an excellent singer/songwriter
Disadvantages: A couple of less good songs but that's quibbling

One of the best things about contemporary music is that much of it defies categorisation making it far easier for performers to stray into other musical genres. Sadly, this does mean that many artists are lumped under the fairly meaningless epithet of ...

Me Su Eyrum Vi Spilum Endalaust

Advantages: Puts a smile on your face. Contains some of Sigur Ros' best songs. Thought-provoking
Disadvantages: Non-english lyrics may put people off. Calm and mystical sound lacks direction occationally.

Hvarf/Heim - two discs of great music

Advantages: the chance to hear some of my favourite sigur ros tracks performed acoustically. Plus new songs.
