I ripped their first cd and store-bought their second. I'm more partial to the first. Thanks for these cool icons btw.

Is it urban myth that they recorded the first cd in a vacant swimming pool to get an echo effect?

Welcome.

Partly, yes. Their studio was built into an old swimming pool, and the building went up around it. It wasn't purchased/constructed until the ( ) album, however. It had less to do with the acoustics and more with the availability and space.

That is cool.

I can remember the first song of their's that I ever heard and where.

"Intro" at a theater in Raleigh, North Carolina before the movie. I think it was either Ocean's Eleven or Zoolander perhaps.

I was like "whoa" I like that!

The first I heard was Viðrar Vel Til Loftárása, from the Ágætis Byrjun album. In case you haven't seen the video, it's amazing:
