Sigur Ros Documentary

Post by purespace »

I'm really unsure if this is old news, but a friend told me about a Sigur Ros documentary being made or is already made? Anyhow, here's the trailer:

I think I feel it coming on

Seconded - it is....utterly mesmerising. And on DVD you can get a bonus disc of a live show from the Takk tour that is also sensational.

I just purchased this yesterday. Can't wait to watch it. Does anyone have the really expensive version of it that has the booklet? How is that?

heima packaging problem

30 november 2007
unfortunately, due to an error in manufacturing, it appears that some copies of “heima” (standard & special edition) have been incorrectly packed with two copies of the same disc inside.

as with any faulty goods you should look to return said item to point of purchase for an exchange (being sure to check that the replacement copy has both discs in). if you purchased online, the store should have a section which details their returns policy for faulty goods. below are a few useful return policy links, but please note - most stores operate a 28 or 30-day returns policy:

thanks noone,

it's strange because it's not technically the same disc, it's just more of the same!

anyways, if it's a rareity i'd jsut assume keep it. i'll check out my friends copy to see if it's different than the one i have.

again thanks for the clarification.

me.

Just finished watching the film and all I can say is that it was extremely moving. I cannot recommend this film enough. It probably just pushed Sigur Ros into my top 20 favorite artists.

Hee hee hee.....the interviewer, Luke Burbank made somewhat of a big deal on NPR (the station's) website about it being the "worst interview in the history of music", and then he quit not too long after that. There was a HUGE controversy online (just look at the messages below, or on the YouTube location for it), there's some sort of "the interviewer sucked, band was fine, questions were bad" vs. "interviewer was fine, band was terrible at answering questions", etc, type of responses. I saw other interviews with Sigur Ros where they were quite gracious and talkative (in a one on one atmosphere)....I can only imagine that they weren't in the greatest mood to do the interview for whatever reason, and that maybe they're all kind of shy to take the lead in a group interview setting. It's almost like something out of Napoleon Dynamite! :D
