Not so wild about this live version although it's a great tune. The heavy beat and audience participation swamps the dreamy quality of the studio version that suits the song better IMO. I imagine it would have felt differently to be at the concert but doesn't work at my desk. Sometimes live music should just stay live. ...roger that
On the other hand the original album production sounds a bit dated and could use a remodel.

What always fascinated me about them as a kid was the strangled cries they made - it's amazing the noises that you can derive from the original phrase "RAG AND BONE!".

okay here's a GOOD RULE...
if the band invents their OWN DAMN LANGUAGE
Vonlenska is a term used to describe the unintelligible lyrics sung by the band, in particular by Jón Þór Birgisson. It is also commonly known by the English translation of its name, Hopelandic. It takes its name from "Von", a song on Sigur Rós's debut album Von where it was first used.
Vonlenska is a non-literal language, without fixed syntax, and differs from constructed languages that can be used for communication. It focuses entirely on the sounds of language; lacking grammar, meaning, and even distinct words. Instead, it consists of emotive non-lexical vocables and phonemes; in effect, Vonlenska uses the melodic and rhythmic elements of singing without the conceptual content of language. In this way, it is similar to the use of scat singing in vocal jazz. The band's website describes it as "a form of gibberish vocals that fits to the music"; it is similar in concept to the 'nonsense' language often used by the Cocteau Twins singer Elizabeth Fraser in the 1980s and 1990s. Most of the syllable strings sung by Jón Þór Birgisson are repeated many times throughout each song, and in the case of ( ), throughout the whole album.
