Ágætis because I think it's the band itself. With this album they have found their own way.Every track it's a part of their story, and contains an aspect of their music
>lyrics are important
Not really, besides, you said it yourself, ( ) is amazing, whether the lyrics are sensical or not.
Are they important in classical, jazz, electronic, and many other genres?
I think that Agaetis and ( ) are both valid answers, just comes down to personal preference.
Personally I feel like ( ) had potential to carry their early sound in a darker direction but didn't always deliver, while Agaetis was consistently strong.
Takk was good too but it does feel a little phoned-in, there are a lot of predictable crescendos and generic 3rd-wave post-rock progressions.
They fell off hard after that, Med sud is an overly-poppy mess, and Valtari is MAYBE an EP's worth of ideas stretched into a long album. Kveikur is a step in the right direction, but I still don't think it holds a candle to their early stuff.
Best metal guitarists out there and their best works. Looking for some inspiration
