4 stars "Inni" was a live album released in 2011 and I'm guessing it is from the tour of their 2008 album that has a title way too long to write down here but it's the one with the cover of the band running naked away from the camera(thankfully) across a road. I don't have that particular album and five of the tracks on this double album come from that one, the most of course. "Takk..." has four songs represented here while "( )" and "Agaetis Byrjun" have two each. The debut which I don't have either has one track featured here. There are so many highs on this live recording, it was such a pleasure listening to these two discs. I also felt with that 2008 album being represented so much it took away a little from my enjoyment, just not being as big a fan of those songs for the most part.

"Svegn-G-Englar" along with "Ny Batteri" both from "Agaetis Byrjun" are top threes from the first disc. They both sound better than the studio versions in my opinion and they are the first and third tracks respectively. The opener sounds so cool as the crowd buzzes and the atmosphere rolls in followed by cheers as the band steps out. We get those "pings" pretty much throughout reminding me of FLOYD's "Echoes". Check out the organ before 6 minutes and the guitar before 9 minutes. I love the way the sound rises in power then falls throughout. "Ny Batteri" also opens with atmosphere as we get outbursts of power that come and go. It kicks in with power after 5 1/2 minutes and I love the vocals before 8 minutes.
