[me]It was back in year 2000. I'm just a kid who listen Radiohead a lot. Then through some chat room, someone introduce me to Sigur Rós. Svefn-g-englar was the first Sigur Rós song i've heard. It really blow me away. It's juts so beautiful.
Well, for me, this is the first band in this genre that really open my eyes, my ears n my heart that there are this kind music in this world. The first "Beautiful Noise" i've ever heard. And since then, i start lookin' another band/artist in the same genre.
