The sounds of the album are very atmospheric and well done. I found the album to be quite inconsistent though. It's hard to get used to each song since Jonsi likes to jump sounds a lot. But this is well made orchestral pop.

Favourite tracks: Go Do, Around Us, Boy Lilikoi

Best Track: Go Do
Worst Track: Grow Till Tall
