Customer Reviews

Fans beware

The performances are fairly brilliant as always for this band. But the mixing and mastering of the music are, to my ears, obviously not done by the band and it leaves me feeling like I'm listening to my favorite band on a crappy radio. Sigur Ros has always cared a lot about the sound of their records and that care is sorely lacking in this tinny mix. If I could, I would unbuy this.

Does not do justice

Sigur Ros is simply astonishing in their live performances. Better than the albums, as impossible as it sounds. I was hoping that this album would be at least somewhat reminiscent of the concert I saw of theirs last October, where the bass in Brennisteinn was so powerful and the music was so absorbing that it took you to another world. However, thanks to the mixing, it doesn’t even resemble it. Honestly a disappointment. I’m only giving this three stars…
one for my favorite band and how astonishing their music is
one because I know how this genuinely sounds live
one because I couldn’t forgive myself for giving Sigur Ros two stars because they are so much better than that and better than this recording

Brilliance

There's no more beautiful music/voice like that of Sigur Ros and Jonsi. I've been lucky enough to see them live 4 times in the past 15 months. Simply breathtaking. 👼❤️👼❤️👼❤️
