3 stars The reason I purchased the DVD was due to excellent reviews on this site and I trust them. So I tried to enjoy the film the way it flew at my screen and sound system. First thing that really impressed me was the scenery in all shots of the film. There are clean town, great mountains and nice surroundings. This has already occupied my mind with a lot of what ifs as I really want to be there in that great places. Secondly, I really like the approach that the band made in presenting the whole concept or ideas of this film through many rehearsals, gigs at small audience as well as larger one. But the most interesting parts were when they played at open air with free tickets and every member of the audience family can take part in the concert at the mountain scenery. This is really great.

The music of Sigur Ros represents what people categorize it as pot modern or post rock style. In my opinion it's basically a psychedelic based with much more ambient nuances using a stream of acoustic instruments especially acoustic guitar. The center of attention is the lead vocalist and guitar player who seems to act as the leader of the band.

Unfortunately, the kind of music Sigur Ros plays is not something that really hooks my mind. It's okay in terms of flow and harmonies, but I got problem with being too slow, I cannot compromise with may patience in moving the music faster in tempo. Overall, it's a good video, especially the scenery and the band's approach in their music to the audience. Keep on proggin' ...!
