"Von," the Icelandic band's first album, is some seriously GREAT ambient space music. In fact it shouldn't even be filed as a "rock" album. I had heard most of their output after this 1997 debut and thought they were interesting but highly overrated. Von is nothing like the post-indie rock Radioheadish stuff they did after this. How to describe this...if Edgar Froese circa '74/'75 met the cosmic space guitars of Slowdive circa '93/'94, while Pink Floyd circa '71 and Eno circa '83/'84 sat in at the mixing desk, it might have sounded like this. If you go on Amazon and read the reviews, most SR fans didn't seem to care for it as there weren't any "songs", save for one track (and it's the best "song" of anything SR did after this debut). I see Amazon has 30 used copies starting at $6.99. Don't miss this one, it is spectacular!!!
