LineageUnkown AUD


Quality/Performance: A


This concert has come as a real surprise, the quality being very different from the 1st time I came across this concert. The sound is just amazingly good but what's most exciting is having the 3 'Rimur' songs here as performed bySteindor Anderson in a quality I don't believe we have heard before. Simply stunning.


However... Only the first nine songs are in this quality. The last four (which originaly I wasn't going to include) are off an inferior 
standard but for the sake of completeness they are included as a '2nd disk'
Part 2 of the FLAC downloads just contains the 3 Rimur tracks if you particularly want those on their own

Quality/Performance: B+ / A

A great performance featuring a rare appearance from Steindór Andersen the head chap from the Icelandic Traditional Rhyming Society. The sound quality itself is a little mixed due mainly to the size and reverb of the venue itself and some clipping during early parts of the recording. Ironically, on the night Geog himself was a little worried about how the venue acoustics would affect the sound. A few songs though come through very well though such as 'Olsen Olsen' and 'Svefn-G-Englar'

Lineage: Unknown AUD
Quality/Performance: A+ (*Top 10 Concert*)

This concerts sits comfortably within the '*Top 10 Concerts*' category, a category designated to the hand full
of concerts that are exceptional and stand out from the rest by their exceptional quality, performance or both. Even though the first master I had done was good enough I spent a bit more time on this one adding a little more warmth, depth and clarity. Not a huge difference but one which I feel is well deserved. One very lovely aspect of this particular recording is the drums. They have the most prefect reverb and 'boom' but, only at the points where its really needed, for instance during Dauðalagið.
Its not perhaps obvious at first why this is such a great concert because nothing about it really stands out but ironically that is what makes it so good. Its wonderfully balanced, played and leaves you feeling completely satisfied. An epic Sigur Rós at their most comfortable & confident.

A very nice quality concert although there were quite a few 'oddities' that arose during the mastering! Its archived as an audience recording but there were some audio artifacts that appeared, that Ive only seen before; during the recording of a web-streamed concert and there is a brief drop out in signal. For this reason I've amended the lineage. Also the tracks do differ slightly in quality throughout the concert so again this may be possible with bitrates dropping & rising during a stream. Anyway, its still a very nice concert that does seem to share something off a soundboard type element in the audio so its reccomended.

One of the very finest live recording of Sigur Rós we are lucky to have. This one has always easily taken pride of place as one of the top 5 of all time. Not much to say about it as it speaks for itself but listening to the drums on 'Von' is as close to Sigur Rós heaven as you can get!! There is a potential issue with the sound itself as explained in the notes. Any comments gratefully received. Also, perfectionists may wish to adjust some small tagging errors that I made with regard to Icelandic lettering (still learning about the correct use of them!)

Very nice audience Cam capture. There is some brief pixalation in parts and the begining starts approximatly half way through Nyjá Lagið but over all a very nice video. Maybe the only video with Jónsi sporting a skinhead haircut!
Its quite a big file at 1.6gb. Ive started .Rar'ing instead of .zip'ing these video files so hopefully there should be no issues with Mac users

A very interesting concert to work with. It was documented as being a soundboard which led me to being very puzzled at some of the weird audio discrepancies that were arising during the mastering which have no place appearing on a soundboard recording. To cut a long story short, this is an audience recording and not a soundboard although its still an  excellant recording. Over all its a very good recording/concert but please be aware of the following issues: 1, In some of the loudest sections there is some clipping although its too bad 2, the soundstage is a little off on some of the tracks 3, The tracks are often different from each other but each can be enjoyed on its own merits. Don't let any of that put you off though ! Its still a great concert, in fact in parts, quite stunning

Quality/Performance: SBD?: A+


This is the same concert as previously posted although this version does not contain the complete set list. However the sound quality for this one is exceptional and I feel better than the FM one. Also with the previous FM Broadcast post there are elements that sometimes give it something of a feel of an audience recording (although as stated its still a superb concert) There where 2 extra tracks that came with this recording, the radio announcer introducing and ending the show. I haven't included these as they had no relevance to the music although this will explain the sharper than usual fade out at the end of the last track!
A fantastic show and certainly due the mixing, one of the most interesting to listen to from this period

An absolutely stunning concert both in quantity and quality. Alafos is simply breathtaking. There is something about the line up of tracks which works really well. This easily goes into my top 10 list of favourite concerts. There just seems to be something so sublime about these 2000 concerts. Enjoy this one, its a special one.
edit: This is a different version to the second post of the same concert. It features all the tracks from the concert but is not as good quality as the latter version (although its still very good!)

I really like this one, it has a lovely warmth & clarity about it. In my notes I gave the quality of the sound from the re-master I did a 95/100 but after a re listen I think the bass has too much presence although this may have had some relevance from the original. Anways, apologies if you also find the bass too overpowering but you should have no problems adjusting your personal EQ to your own taste :) Never the less its still a very nice concert as it stands
