Go, first solo album of Sigur Rós’s singer Jón Þór Birgisson (aka Jónsi), was released on April 6th.
Of course, I had pre-ordered it. But I’m attending to a conference in Lille this week, so no CD for me (it hasn’t arrived yet anyway). But thanks to Spotify, I’ve been able to listen to it anyway… and, well, I could say it is great, wonderful, magical, or even insanely awesome, but this would be an understatement.
A little earlier, while walking in the street, I decided that I should definitely dent/tweet something about this album. Then I thought that listening to Jónsi is a little bit like flying without the fear of falling. And that’s the moment I realized that writing reviews for albums is complicated (especially when you’re not using your mother tongue), and that I should probably not even try to do that myself.
So here is an excellent review of Go. Now go listen to it, you won’t regret it.
