Icelandic insight for all music fans.....
5 February 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Now depending on your individual music taste may depend on whether you fully appreciate this documentary. However, anyone with an interest in the beauty that is the country of Iceland, alternative music of all genre, just downright decent cultures - will find much here. With music and history moulding to shape a country like no other, the downbeat interviews on show simply convey what Iceland is all about, wrapped up in an hour and a half to one of the most diverse soundtracks around. Most of us have already experienced Bjork's ethereal voice, here backed by a pulsating techno beat at one point; slightly less have witnessed the moving soundscapes of Sigur Ros, never more effecting than sound tracked to expansive shots over Icelands many mountain range; but the joy in hearing Muggisson's brilliant folk sounds, Bang Gang, SlowBow, Mum, the far too brief glimpse of Singapore Sling, early Sugarcubes footage, the development of Punk or witnessing a weekly church meet with the congregation simply having a fun time through music....its all very inspiring to see the protagonists being so down to earth about the whole thing....and thats the truly inspiring thing. No pretence unless warranted....Unique
