I hope they come to El Paso this tour.
Let's go to a motel. We don't have to do anything -- we could just swim.

Christopher Nolan's directive was clear to everyone in the cast and crew: Use CGI only as a last resort.

I'll be seeing them live as well.

as expected, they were brilliant.

the level of hot chicks that came to the concert were the best i've ever seen. i didn't want it to end. everyone was, like, feeling it, u know? amazing tracks from their new album, and the highlights were surprisingly from (untitled). for those who are going, here's a brief list of DOs and DO NOT DOs to sigur ros appreciation:

-do NOT talk during the songs, and if u can help it, between them. no one gives a flying fuck whether u know the song or not, no one wants to hear ur review, if u can't tell whether it's a new song or an old one just save urself the embarrassment and keep ur mouf SHUT. please. woo and all that at the appropriate times.

-standing is all well and good but consider ur level of fitness. the discomfort of standing for a good 2 hours may ultimately detract from ur experience. also, it doesn't matter where u stand, find a spot where u can get into it and just go with it. sumtimes 3 rows from the front is just as good as the front.

-if ur tall, let the small ppl go through, it's not like they'll block ur vision anyway.

-the merchandise is not worth the price. i'm sorry, it just isn't. save ur money and buy the hot chick next to u a drink.

-jónsi may sing into his guitar. if u hear anyone laugh, punch them in the guts.

-don't go cos u think it'll be cool to be seen there, go only if u really like them. don't kid urself, the best concert experiences are when ur surrounded by ppl who actually like the music and aren't looking around at everyone BUT the band. enjoy it, they're sumthing to behold.

Right, although unlike Cron I listen always the whole cd, Milano is amazing as well.

How do you rank their albums now and why?

:yabbse-undecided:

What a strange question. Are you actually invested in the answer enough to ask something like this?

Yes, it wasn't at all meant as a flippant question and I understand the amount of thought and analysis that is required for the answer.  I'm very interested because I know Pubrick has been a Sigur Rós fan for a while and I respect his opinions.  He brings a unique critical eye to such matters.  He seems to have a strong respect for the band and the music.  I am curious how one assesses the strength of albums by a band like Sigur Rós and how initial assessments of those albums change over time.  Asking for a "ranking" wasn't a call for a list, but an analysis of what the albums say and why it is important.


EDIT------
Post Script: I also realize and understand that an answer to my original question may not come soon...if at all.  But, because I am interested in hearing the answer, if one exists, I thought I would throw the question out there all the same.

can somebody host or e-mail ( ) for me?
Obviously what you are doing right now is called (in my upcoming book of psychology at least) validation. I think it's a normal thing to do. People will reply, say anything, and then you're gonna do what you were subconsciently thinking of doing all along.
