2005's Takk, Sigur Ros' fourth album, has been out of print on vinyl for a while and has been going for big bucks online. When you get it, you'll see why. The deluxe vinyl package (180g 2LP + 10"), thick card dual gatefold sleeve with embossed artwork on the front and rear, and a center insert with a single sided 10" for "Mílanó" (other side contains an etching). Written, performed and produced by the band (along with co-producer Ken Thomas) at their studio in Alafoss, Iceland, Takk is the record to justify every amazing claim ever laid at this exceptional band's door. Huge and intimate, orchestral and gossamer-light, rich, layered and essentially simple, Takk is the work of a band operating at the very top of their game.
