''( )'' is the third full-length album from Icelandic band Sigur Rós, first released in October 2002. It comprises eight untitled tracks, divided into two parts: the first four tracks are lighter and more optimistic, while the latter four are bleaker and more melancholic. The two halves are divided by a 36-second silence, and the album opens and closes with a click of distortion. Lead singer Jón Þór Birgisson ("Jónsi") sang the album's lyrics entirely in "Hopelandic", a made-up language consisting of gibberish words. ''( )'' reached #51 on the ''Billboard'' 200 and was positively received by critics, although some reviewers found the album weaker than the work of Sigur Rós on ''Ágætis byrjun''. - Wikipedia
