    This double live album/DVD, which includes footage from their final 2008 prehiatus show at London's Alexandra Palace, is masterfully paced.

    Fans who lamented the band's shift will be rewarded, but those drawn to the fuller arrangements might find some songs lacking in splendor.

    The music itself is epic, and not in that wanky overblown stadium rock way--epic in the way of glockenspiels and falsettos and cello bow scraping against guitar strings and pounding drums and explosions of piano chords.

    This assiduously produced package is a thrilling summary of Sigur Ros, the first 14 years. [Dec. 2011 pg. 95]

    Thanks to Jónsi's impeccable vocals, a rare falsetto that loses none of its power in a live setting, everything remains indubitably the work of Sigur Rós.

    Only the nuttiest of fans will find any new details (the more-present backing vocals on Agaetis Byrjun stunner "Svefn-g-englar," or the beefed-up church organ swirl in "Ny Batteri"), even if the band's live majesty is captured in full-force.

    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.

    Emotional and brilliant! This live production bring Sigur Rós back to a simpler time, when the band was just four friends playingEmotional and brilliant! This live production bring Sigur Rós back to a simpler time, when the band was just four friends playing music...the movie is also a brilliant addition with Vincent Morisset's effects. I love this album! Collapse
