    I am so happy that they are back in the studio. I love Jonsi's solo stuff (one of the best live shows I have ever seen, almost topping Lights in the Sky), but I am really looking forward to new Sigur Ros. New album in the spring yay!

    Thoughts on Inni? Works completely as the opposite of Heima. I only wish they would have cut about 95% of the unnecessary "behind the scenes" footage and just put in more performances. The end of Popplagid was amazing though. My surround was on full blast, and the moment that explosion of confetti came out, I got the more enormous wave of goosebumps.

    Did anyone else get the Deluxe Edition box-set? I (think) I got a piece of Orri's jacket. Pretty neat. Might have it framed with the 4 prints.

    I haven't even ordered my copy of the blu-ray edition yet. I will soon though. I'm not in a hurry to get it by Christmas or anything. I'm not sure if i want to order any of the new light-sensitive shirts with it. I liked the old design better than the new one.

    But I don't think I can bring myself to order the Deluxe Edition with the way my finances are looking. :P Otherwise I'd jump on it.

    I have listened to Inni, but I haven't watched it yet I'm sad to say. The album is pretty damn great though.

    Did anyone get a chance to catch one of the "Go" shows?

    I managed to see it in Lawrence, then again in St. Louis. Easily one of the best production's I've been lucky enough to see!

    I know! I it was phenomenal. The visuals were insane, but somehow they didn't overpower the music at all. I wish I could have seen it more than once.

    The Jonsi show in Lawrence was easily one of the best shows that I've ever seen, as well as even topping the one time that I've seen Sigur Ros live. I slightly wept during the last song.

    I've seen SR four times and saw Jonsi's show here in Vancouver, caught up with them for a drink at the same place I drank with SR after their first show here waaaay back in like 2001 or so. The Go show was pretty phenomenal.

    It was really not to not feel like you were IN the show. The sound and lights were so overwhelming that I still can't explain how it felt to anyone who asks me what it was like. The Go Live DVD, while great, doesn't come close to doing the show full justice.

    I'm sure they will. Jonsi seemed like he really enjoyed touring for Go, and I'm sure that, plus the new soundtrack, might even help build up the Sigur Ros fanbase for the next tour. I'll be seeing 'em for the first time if they do. I'd SO be willing to drive 3+ hours to see this band.

    On my, oh I'd say 25th impression, I'd say it's fantastic.

    At 2:27 there's a build up I really like, but then the melody just vanishes and never comes back to something I enjoy, which is disappointing. Looking at the track listing, with only 8 songs, one would imagine the songs are long, which is something that seems like a good sign.

    very impressed. sounds like a sister to "Vaka" and the Hlemmur soundtrack. i hope it's all as understated and beautiful.

    Fair enough, I just think it's like samskeyti where it'll tie in with the rest. No drumming, so Orri wouldn't have much to do but they still do the tracks like that live so no biggie there. I just dig the little nuances, the withering strings, the light backing vocals that start around 1:15. I'm a fanboy, I know.

    So beautiful. It sounds, to me, like Takk's quieter moments mixed with the Riceboy Sleeps album. This album is going to be amazing.
