  1. The 2015 reissue of Sigur Rós’ third album () is excellent. The pressing quality is hard to fault as it plays beautifully and quiet. However, I really want to love this Simon Davey’s cut but this reissue is lacking some warmth comparing to the two previous releases from 2009 and 2013. I expected this to be absolutely top notch but this is not quite as open and dynamic as Simon Davey’s best work.

    Comparing this reissue to the previous two releases, the 2009 UK FatCat Records DMM Remaster and the 2013 EU [PIAS] Recordings Reissue, this XL Recordings reissue lacks the organic feel and impressive depths that makes those previous reissues so special. Unfortunately I haven’t heard the first release of () so I can’t comment.
