Sigur Ros Agetis Byrjun: A Good Beginning: 20th Anniversary Vinyl 2LP

20th Anniversary Vinyl 2LP Reissue with Download featuring Demo & Archive Versions of All the Songs on the Album Plus Never-Before-Heard Newly Unearthed Material from the Era!

In 1999 Sigur Ros released Ágætis Byrjun ("A Good Start") which Q Magazine went on to deem "the last great record of the 20th century." By the end of the year it had won the inaugural US Shortlist Prize for Artistic Achievement in Music. Agaetis Byrjun was an album that came literally out of nowhere and seemed to tug at the heartstrings of those who least expected it. No one thought an album by an unknown band of four shy Icelandic men in their early-20s, singing in Icelandic, would become the worldwide music phenomenon it became.

The record label projected the album to sell 1,500 copies - it has to date sold several million copies. 2019 marks the 20th anniversary of the landmark Ágætis Byrjun and the band celebrates the occasion with a double heavyweight vinyl LP reissue complete with a download for demo and archive versions of all songs on the album, plus never-before-heard newly unearthed material from the era, rare B-sides and the full 95 minute concert played in Reykjavík on the day the record was released in 1999.
