Product Description

CD Description

Inni is either the first-ever Sigur Rós live album, or second live film (and follow up to 2007's acclaimed tour film Heima). in fact, it is both: a 75-minute film and 105-minute double live album of the band captured in full flow at the close of their last tour in November 2008. Filmed at Alexandra Palace over two nights by director Vincent Morisset the film strips away everything save the raw performance of the four musicians themselves.

Originally filmed on HD digital, Inni was first transferred to 16mm film and then projected and re-filmed once, sometimes through glass and other objects to give a strong impressionistic look, a feat accomplished with the help of Godspeed You! Black Emperor visual collaborator Karl Lemieux. The film was then meticulously pieced together by Heima editor Nick Fenton, who chose to break up the flow with unexplained archive footage, including interview and concert material from before the band's exposure to the wider world at the tail end of the last century.

BBC Review

Releasing a Greatest Hits album doesn’t seem very Sigur Rós, so this live album will have to do. Since the Icelanders haven’t released a new album since 2008 (and the follow-up to Með suð í eyrum við spilum endalaust was scrapped before it was finished), Inni is also a welcome stopgap, if not the album fans wanted. Inni (‘Inside’) contains tracks from each of their albums, and comes with 75 minutes of concert footage (no frills; no audience even) from London’s Alexandra Palace in November 2008. The double-CD from the same two shows encompasses 105 minutes, enough for about five of their songs. Only kidding. There are 15 tracks in total, but Sigur Rós songs are the aural equivalent of the slow food club, each taste to be savoured and endured so that every classical, folk, ambient, rock and post-rock flavour can be absorbed. If rock’n’roll is the new food, Jónsi and company could win Masterchef every time.

But there’s something about live albums that falls short of the main event. Sigur Rós are an extraordinary live band; it’s those flavours, with backlighting and blended visuals, and Jónsi’s presence, the way he draws that violin bow across his guitar and gets lost in sound, and the way all four of them are bathed in the intensity of their performance. This is all lacking when you hear Inni in the cold light of day/dusk/night. The way the frontman stretches for those high fragile notes in Glósóli would be much better with the visual aid (it’s not on the film). And pictured or not, this version of Hoppípolla – after all its exposure on TV and film – isn’t expansive enough.

But this is still Sigur Rós, and free of the orchestral addendums of other live tours, and unshackled from the studio finesse, the band ignites on several occasions, when they grasp the epic strands of their DNA. Svefn-g-englar is already the slowest and dreamiest storming-of-the-barricades you’re ever likely to hear, but here it’s even bigger. Similarly, Ný batterí is gifted a brutal power here that you rarely hear on their albums. E-Bow – aka Untitled #6 from ( ) – is the sound of shearing glaciers and this version sears. Festival is equally hair-raising, but Popplagið – aka Untitled #8 from ( ) – is the killer blow, 15 minutes of the highest drama. And you can see every one of those four killers on the film. The one brand new track, the closing Lúppulagið, is six minutes of elegant piano ambience that comprises either an anti-climax or the calm after the storm. Watching this on film won’t make it better, however. But at least you have the choice. --Martin Aston

Format: Audio CD
The bottom line is that the sheer amount of excellent music (and film) on offer here constitutes great value for newcomers and afficionados alike. Nonethless, there is a slight sense of marking time to this release of live performances exactly 3 years ago (unsurprisingly, the older albums are less well-represented than the newer ones) compounded by the lack of new material (only closing song "lúppulagið" is not on previous releases) and the general fidelity to studio recordings. Perhaps Sigur Ros are drawing a line under the work and are about to go grime? In any event, when you have staggering songs like "svefn-g-englar", "popplagið" and countless others to perform, you can be forgiven for airing them.

Sigur Ros's music, while brilliant on its own, is enhanced by visuals and this is why I think the film (in a different order from the cds and with interludes between the actual performance including one hilarious moment when they are ejected from a hotel piano bar) works better than the live concert per se. Seeing the musicians breakway and regroup before the onslaught of "sæglópur" is spell-binding despite havinh heard it 50 times before. The film is suitably atmospheric, in turn film noirish and like Soviet 1920 propaganda films.

All in all, highly recommended.

I tend to listen to albums whilst cooking family meals. I found this album to be extremely relaxing and a great addition to my Sigur Ros collection. I bought Valtari at the same time and have been very impressed with both albums. Less depressing than a number of other post rock bands, these guys manage to make post rock seem optimistic (though Mogwai mange this too at times). A great album and the limited prints are of high quality.

Firstly ideally don't listen to this album on headphones, unless they're really very, very good (in the B&W class for example), but half-decent decent speakers at the very least. There's just too much music in there for a little in ear/over ear speaker to render. A Tsunami of music crashes into your ears. It's, I think, irrelevant to pick this or that track, as better or worse. As others have noted this album is a glimpse into the power of the Sigur Ros live experience; huge and at times completely overwhelming . It demands you go back and listen again, shell-shocked, as to whether it really was what you'd heard, and could it really be that overwhelming. There's subtly in the onslaught, but you have to go back to find it, but find it you will.

Get yourself an isolated cottage; open all the windows and doors; run it through your B&W's or Monitor Audio's and turn the amp up to 11. & then frighten an awful lot of sheep!

Popplagid - just a huge Wow!

Utterly, utterly magnificent.
