* EpicRocking: Frequent. ''Takk...'' and ''Með suð'' were the first albums to include more songs in the 3-5 minute length range. "Untitled #8 (Popplagið)" deserves special mention though: the entire 12-minute song is basically one big crescendo. It often gets even longer when performed live. Also from ''( )'', "Untitled #7 (Dauðalagið)" is even longer, clocking in at thirteen minutes.

Added DiffLines:

** "Njósnavélin" actually translates as "The Spy Machine", but "The Nothing Song" is a commonly used alternate title. "The Nothing Song" in Icelandic would be something more along the lines of "Ekkertalagið" (a native speaker may wish to revise this if needed).

** There are also thirty-six seconds of silence separating the first four songs on ''( )'' from the last four. The gap separates the sunnier, more cheerful first half from the distinctly more downbeat second half (which also consists of substantially longer songs).

** Additionally, the working titles for "Hljómalind" and "Hoppípolla" were "Rokklagið" (The Rock Song) and "The Money Song," respectively, "Rokklagið" for being the most rock-like out of their songs, and "The Money Song" for the band's certainty that the song would be commercially successful.

** The song ''Svefn-g-englar'': Svefngenglar simply means "Sleepwalkers." Englar also means "Angels," so the title is a forced pun and can be translated as "Sleepwalking Angels"

After recruiting classically trained keyboardist Kjartan Sveinsson, the band released ''Ágætis byrjun'' in 1999. It was with this album that the band perfected its SignatureStyle, fully integrating Kjarri's lush orchestration with their DreamPop[=/=]{{Shoegazing}} sound and introducing Jónsi's method of playing his guitar with a cello bow (a method previously popularised by [[Music/LedZeppelin Jimmy Page]]) for a more atmospheric sound. The replacement of drummer Ágúst with Orri Páll Dýrason shortly after the album's release proved not to be too dramatic. They recorded two more albums with largely the same musical style, ''( )'' and ''Takk...'', swinging between DarkerAndEdgier and LighterAndSofter, before settling for a more stripped-down, direct sound with ''Með suð í eyrum við spilum endalaust''.

After scrapping the recordings for the album that they intended to release in 2010 and taking a two-year hiatus, the band dropped ''Valtari'', a much more ambient, dreamlike album compared to ''Með suð''. Later in the year, they announced via a Reddit Q&A session that keyboardist Kjartan Sveinsson had left the band permanently, making the group a trio. According to them, Kjartan said "he had spent his whole life in the band and it was time to do something different", but remained on good terms with his former bandmates. The band then released ''Valtari'' in June 2013, a DarkerAndEdgier NewSoundAlbum that incorporated elements of {{industrial}} music to the point of being described by Georg Hólm as "an anti-''Valtari''".
