Release Date: Tracklist. I was going to buy this the other day but I was low on cash : I'm glad to know it's really good though.
I'll pick it up at a later date and pretty good review by the way. You didn't spend much time at all talking about the music but I'd think it's safe to assume most interested in buying the documentary know what Sigur Ros sounds like. I'd advise writing about the second disc and then adding it to this. Reviewing only half a release really isn't enough. What you have is pretty good though. Album Rating: 5. The main feature is the first disc.
I'll add a blurb when I watch all of the second disc but Heima is the documentary and that's the first disc. You Museum - Sigur Rós - Heima (DVD) still review a live performance. There's lots to talk about. But I didn't. I chose to review the main feature. Album Rating: 4.
I want this. I haven't seen this at all, but I seem to remember reading that the second disc is mostly acoustic shows? That would be worth watching and reviewing, and you definitely should. If I'm right. I had heard about In Da Club - Various - Now Thats What I Call Old Skool Heim, but not this.
Im interested in it since its and actual DVD release, not just recycled live performances on audio. One guy I know went to the premier and thought it was really great so that's kinda been pushing me to pick this up. Good review; I really don't care that you didn't review the second disc or anything, but it might be cool if you added a review of that in later.
I completly forgot about this. Just orderded it. I bought this a couple days ago but haven't seen it yet. Excited to, though.
Most of the songs feel no different than disc one, some songs are expanded. It really just feels like their source material for the documentary. This just sounds too good. It's absolutely breath-taking. Now I really really really need to watch this.
It's just sitting at home waiting for me. This dvd is simply stunning, there is nothing Museum - Sigur Rós - Heima (DVD) awesome than the flute section in Olsen Olsen, I could watch it all day. Well worth purchasing. Everyone buy this now, it's great. It's absolutely amazing. This sounds brilliant, I'll be sure to buy it I also just want to commend you on a brilliant review, I thought it was really well written, and you've persuaded me to buy the dvd Tops. Review Summary: A 97 minute Sigur Ros music video.
Rank: 1 for Sigur Ros has always been known as an unclassifiable band. From releasing an album in a made up language to the use of the bow to create ambient soundscapes on an electric guitar, the music of Sigur Ros is truly unique and one-of-a-kind. Sigur Ros is also well known for releasing beautiful music videos. Untitled 1 received critical acclaim for children playing in a post-apocalyptic winterland and the music video for Glosoli artfully showed a drummer boy leading a pack of children off a cliff.
So when I heard that Sigur Ros was going to release a documentary, Heima meaning homeabout all the free shows they gave in Iceland last summer, I was rather excited. I usually am not a big fan of dvds put out by artists. Sometimes I enjoy watching for the musicianship or to see if I am playing the song like the guitarist in the band is playing his song. Yet for the most part, I am put off by the narcissism that is sold on dvds.
I don't enjoy listening to why the artist thinks they are cool and why we as a fan base should think they are cool. In contrast, while there are interviews with the band on Heima, Sigur Ros comes off as happy people who enjoy their homeland.
The documentary starts off with an introduction where it shows Sigur Ros t-shirts being made. The colors are vibrant and the mood is ethereal. In between the shots of t-shirt-making comes pictures of a stage with a semi-transparent sheet in front of it.
As Sigur Ros starts playing Glosoli, the lights dim and flood lights shine from behind the band Jonathans Diary - Stormwitch - Stronger Than Heaven create shadows on the sheet hanging Jobsworth - Jeremy Taylor - Shearing The Poms front of the stage.
A data projector projects unfocused images and colors onto the Museum - Sigur Rós - Heima (DVD) of the sheet with a heavenly effect. As the song plays, video of rivers and streams all throughout Iceland are interposed.
Halfway through the song the video is played backwards and a haunting waterfall starts to catch the water it had long thrown away. The mixture of live performance and shots of nature is truly breathtaking.
Sigur Ros continues with the song Se Lest; a song full of xylophone, in which at the end a marching band plays horns as it marches through an Icelandic town. The blue uniforms shine against a backdrop of a dreary-looking countryside and red houses.
The first two songs set a high bar for the songs that follow and yet each new song brings with it visually stunning views of Iceland. The beauty in this disc is that the video taken of Iceland is mainly of things that are either normal looking, or decrepit and decaying. Some of the songs such as Von, are played Never Will I Marry - Judy Garland - Swan Songs, First Flights intimate settings where the camera Museum - Sigur Rós - Heima (DVD) most of the time looking at the expressions on the faces of the audience as opposed to watching the band.
There is something all-encompassing about listening to a song while watching somebody else listening to the same song. There are times such as in Agaetis Byrjun where a child runs around and tries to play with the band as they are performing the song. In both circumstances, a normal setting and normal people create a palette that Sigur Ros uses to portray beauty. At other times, Sigur Ros uses run-down objects for their visuals. In Heysatan, Sigur Ros plays outside next to an abandoned house and Museum - Sigur Rós - Heima (DVD) rusted tractor.
However, the house and tractor are used to portray the haunting and subtle Museum - Sigur Rós - Heima (DVD) of the song. In addition, Sigur Ros put on a free concert at an abandoned fish factory that has a giant rusting ship beached right outside. Yet with the soundscapes of Sigur Ros weaving throughout its rafters, the factories giant catacombs turn into a warm and welcoming cave. If 97 minutes of Sigur Ros was not enough, Sigur Ros provided almost two hours of full length performances on the second disc.
This disc is essentially all the source material for the documentary. The only addition might be a couple more pictures of Iceland. Disc 2 is still interesting in that there is more footage of places from around Iceland such as a house-museum about Icelandic music, to a church literally in the middle of nowhere. While the second disc is very good, I recommend watching the main feature a couple times before jumping to the next disc because disc 2 is unedited and very choppy between songs whereas disc one seamlessly flows from song to song.
Heima is vibrant and is filled with shots from Iceland. The images of Iceland are lush, rich, and beautiful as the compositions. This dvd is truly a masterpiece. Tweet Recent reviews by this author. Elbow Build A Rocket Boys! The Civil Wars Barton Hollow.
