Why is water unique from most compounds when it goes from a liquid to a solid?

The density of water in its solid state (ice) is lower than that when it is in its liquid state. This is because in ice the molecules reorder themselves into an arrangement that takes up a greater volume. Most compounds will increase in density as they make the transition from liquid to solid.
