Originally released in 1999. Ágætis Byrjun (A good beginning) is the second release of, while also being the breakthrough album for Icelandic band, Sigur Rós. One of the pioneers of the post rock genre, this album continues to be highly touted as one of the best records of the 2000’s. Musically, it’s extremely rare to find a guitarist of any kind using a cello bow to play a guitar, but Jonsi of Sigur Rós, is the exception. His trademark tone took off on this album, and those dreamy bow guitar textures contributed to the unique sound that we all know Sigur Rós for. This 2015 European pressing was pressed on 180 gram black wax, flat and heavy, to show the wide array of soundscapes presented on Ágætis Byrjun.
