Haha, I was downstairs from you at the Paul Gilbert gig.... That sort of thing isn't normally my cup of tea but I do like that guy.

Just got home after seeing Sigur Ros in London at the Alexandra Palace.

AMAZING.

I've never really been that into them, and knew a few of the songs, but bugger me sideways....that was one of the most mind-blowing shows I've ever seen. Some of the most beautiful music I've ever heard, it just invades your senses and it actually did make me cry at various points - this almost felt like a purely physical response, like, the music was so powerful and surrounding that it just pulled the tears from my eyes.

His voice is incredible, I've never heard anything like it ever.

Immense, what else can I say. The "rain", the "snow", the lights, the visuals and the ticker tape...all complimented the music and just made this a truly incredible experience to treasure. Except for the 2 gunts behind us who were chatting shit the whole fucking time. I don't know why people like that would go to a gig like this, they clearly weren't really listening to or appreciating the amazingness unfolding before them, and to be honest, people like that simply do not deserve music like this. It makes me irate. And to top it off, one of them was doing a Vicky Pollard impression...Really? Really?[\i] Come on man for fuck's sake, that show was funny for a very short time about 4 years ago, then it just became excrutiatingly tiresome, and shouting its catch phrases doubley tiresome, and shouting its catch phrases throughout this incredibly beatiful music triply tiresome. Not to mention disrespectful to all the people around who were actually there to listen to the music. I was going to tell them to shut the fuck up, but I knew with a pair of halfwits like this it would have been met with some equally vicky pollard esque back chat, so I just left it. I really did want to tell them how fucking irate they were making me, and a sgnificant number of other people standing around.

I was also quite happy (selfishly) that a surprisingly large number of people started filtering out after they'd played the really well known one that's been the emotional scene and bbc soundtrack since its release, as it meant it was less rammed. Although the 2 cretins unfortunately didn't leave at this point, much to my dissapointment.

But anyway, it was fucknig amazing nonetheless.

Next time I want to see them outside, in summer, with a massive sunset.

I just preached about them in a different thread not any longer than 20 seconds ago - but can probably agree with most of what you just said. There were plenty areseholes at the Glasgow gig too - and admittedly for the full effect, you have to see the gig outside at a festival, or at a similar setting.

Essentially, I can't imagine any other band ever being able to move an audience in the way that they do. There were only 4 of them on this tour, yet the effect never suffered once, it was fantastic.

Totally. I thought they might sound quite bare with just 4 of them, but honestly when they came out and played I was astonshed at the wall of sound that 4 people can make. Truly breathtaking.

I went into the gig thinking that I would get very bored with them. I couldn't have been more wrong.
