The 11 Best Sigur Ros Songs

The First Rule of Fight Club: Don't talk about Fight Club.

It's no long news that the new GNR leaked yesterday. 9 fully mastered tracks are now every where on the internet.

The world has changed in the 15 years that Axl has been working on the album (even though there's still a Bush in the White House). The computers in our cell phones are more powerful than the computers that used to sit on our desks. People communicate more over email and text than any other form of communication. And news is instantaneous. I could be at the top of Mt. Everest pull out my cell phone and get up-to-minute reports of the Dodger game. When 15 years ago, I'd be lucky to find a news paper that could get the information to me within a week. So what' the point of holding the genie in the bottle.

Instead of embracing the new world of technology like Coldplay, Radiohead, Nine Inch Nails, The Offspring, and others...GNR (and their label) is running around threatening to sue anyone that even reports the information. Even the GNR websites are forbidding their users to talk about it. What good will this do? Make people care less about your product.

Well, I will say...I've listened to it. And it's good. Let people trade the songs. Let people talk about the product...all it can do is give you more publicity and help you sell more items.

Here Are The 11 Best Sigur Ros Songs:

1. Hoppipolla (Takk...)
2. Svefn-G-Englar (Agaestis Byrjun)
3. Vaka - Track 1 ( () )
4. Saeglopur (Takk...)
5. Ny Batteri (Agaestis Byrjun)
6. I Gaer (Hvaf - Heim)
7. Glosoli (Takk...)
8. Agaestis Byrjun (Agaestis Byrjun)
9. Ba ba (BA BA TI KI DI DO)
10. NjoSnaveLinin - Track 4 ( () )
11. Hafsol (Hvaf - Heim)

Buy Sigur Ros' new album, Med Sud I Eyrum Vid Spilum Endalaust.

Only one GNR site, HTGTH, isn't allowing fans to talk about the leaks. GNR fans think of that site as a joke though since its run by another yes man for Axl.
