I'm still not sure which character it is that has a bug in it, but it's clearly not one on here.

i know the "o" with the line on top (found in Toshiro, for example) is one of them.

So is the infinity symbol found in the title "F#A#(infinity symbol)" by Godspeed You! Black Emperor.

been obsessing over "untitled #8" recently thanks to the songs tournament... there's a lot i love about the song, but that apocalyptic keith-moon-like drumming once it reaches the final climax plateau drives me crazy, it's that good... it's a counterrhythm and is played for only maybe the last 20-30 seconds of the song, but it's probably as effecting drumming as i've ever heard

Studio Albums:

Takk... (2005)

Með suð í eyrum við spilum endalaust (2008)


This is really close in my opinion, but I would make Takk red as well. It really helped to popularize the band and is a solid album. While I may not like it as much as ( ), I think that someone new to Sigur Ros should explore Takk after finishing with AB.

I'm about to go to bed and I just put on Takk... I can't really say I forgot how beautiful their music is because I didn't, but it's refreshing hearing it again after a long break.

One of the most amazing moments of my life was listening to Takk... on the way home from a road trip I took last spring break. We drove 40+ hours straight from Berkley, CA to Kirksville, MO, so obviously we had to split up shifts, particularly overnight. I drove from about 3 a.m. to 7 a.m. and watched the sun rise over the snowy hills of Wyoming as all my car-mates slept and Takk... played on repeat for a couple hours. It was absolutely sublime.

A bit unrelated, but i just checked them out, and found them sorta similar to the swedish banf Kent, which i would suggest people to check out if they enjoy this band..
