|Takk - Sigur Ros's fourth album and the one where they finally got happy, albeit in their own inimitably beautiful and deeply inscrutable way. This is the record that gave the world "Hoppipolla", a song which cemented Sigur Ros's reputation for being the go-to band for anyone wanting a sense of hope and exultation in their film/TV show. The record also harboured moments of definitive Sigur Ros drama in singles Glosoli and Saeglopur, and high beauty in Se Lest and Svo Hljott. Takk. - which means "thank you" in the band's native Icelandic - quickly became the bands biggest selling album around the world, fuelled by Hoppipolla's usage in the BBCs Planet Earth nature series. Sung in a mixture of Icelandic and the wordless Hopelandic, TakkÉ was recorded by the band with producer Ken Thomas in 2005 at their Sundlaugin studio in the Icelandic countryside. For the first time since its initial release, the vinyl record comes packaged on 2 x 12-inch, plus 1 x one-sided etched 10-inch. The album artwork is the original debossed and die-cut sleeve, with printed innerbags, all done to the bands exacting specifications. All vinyl is 180 gram.
