Captures a moment. In b&w.

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.

Sigur ros are a marmite band,you either love them or loathe them,i personally think they are magnificent,they stide between early German electronica and Radiohead.
This is a live album recorded in Londons Alexandra palace in 2008;it contains tracks from all of their albums.
The sound is m Majestic a nd crisp,and the packaging superb
