Nothing better than having goosebumps for ten consecutive minutes. :up: Amazing video.

Zoomerang96 01-16-2008 03:42 PM

and that's not even the whole song!

as good as everything is about that song, i think it's the drums that take the cake.

GibsonGirl 01-16-2008 03:50 PM

Yep. It's definitely the drums, combined with Jonsi's beautiful wailing - the 6:06 point and onwards (studio version) is what does it for me. I get chills every time I hear it. Every time.

I left my body during the climax of that song when I experienced it live. It's so great to relive it with the DVD. I saw Radiohead a couple of months later and it was kind of a letdown by comparison. :silent:

I was lucky enough to see them perform Untitled 8 in Barcelona. It's probably the best live song I've ever seen... great set closer.

Joyfulgirl, I agree. I think that when the camera cuts to the audience, it takes away from the potency of the performance. The video doesn't give you a good impression of the scale of the stage veil.

Zoomerang96 01-16-2008 03:57 PM

not only that, but are they even showing the crowd during the same song? doesn't look like it.

nevertheless, i could listen to this over and over and not get tired of it.

Plus, those wild and crazy Icelanders are like having a picnic instead of going into a trance. Not that the picnic isn't cool--it's totally cool--just different than being in a dark theatre with this whole sensory overload thing happening. :drool:

The world would be a better place if everyone saw Heima.

Likewise. Still the best moment of the best show I've ever seen.


The Heima DVD really is absolutely spectacular. One of the more beautiful films about music I've seen in a very long time.

Same. I just haven't had the time lately to go out and browse for CDs/DVDs. :sigh: Still haven't even bought In Rainbows on disc.

Make time.

Sigur Ros + Radiohead > everything else


:wink:

DaveC 01-16-2008 09:36 PM

Sigur Ros + magic mushrooms = possibly the best 8 hours of my life.

:shifty:

Music from the heavens, my friends.
