The first thing you will notice about this DVD set is the packaging, which is not a bad thing, as its exceptional. The packaging is also a sign of things to come too, as unlike most music DVD`s Sigur Ros have gone above and beyond with this, in both its presentation and definatly with the content.
Playing out in more of a documentry/film style, this 2 DVD set follows the band members as they perform a series of small, free shows in their native Iceland, ending in one big show in the capital of Reykjavik.
This is its first main difference in comparison to other music DVD`s, it is made up of various shows rather than just one or two shows/gigs.
This actually works very very well, for one reason, the simply stunning Icelandic scenery they choose as a backdrop for most of the DVD. This is a running theme too, including interviews with the Icelandic public, the band themselves and many little neat insights in to the country, its scenery and its often quirky places of interests.
The second disk cuts away the film element, and instead opts for a more tradional music DVD setup by cutting away the interviews and allowing you to view the live performances in all their splendour. It also includes a few interesting featuretts.
This is simply an amazing set, its amazing to look at, its got an amazing atmosphere, its amazing to watch, its amazing to hear its even got an amazing smell, but, its hard to recommend to everyone, my advice would be to listen to atleast some of their music first, then buy this and be blown away by one of the best, original and most beautiful bands of all time touring in one of the most beautiful countries on earth.
