Takk Sigur Ros...
30 October 2007 | by Barbara PennSee all my reviews

Having been lucky enough to be able to attend the Melbourne Premier of Heima, as well as privileged to see Sigur Ros perform live in the past, I expect Heima to be good, even great...

I didn't expect it to be a night of pure magic.

With the release of Heima, which is part documentary, part live DVD, Sigur Ros have cemented themselves as not influential musicians, but also as artists who have crossed over into the film genre with sublime results.

Heima traces the journey undertaken by Sigur Ros at the end of 2006, following their Takk world tour. As a way of giving something back to their country, as well as to the people of Iceland, they performed a set of free unannounced concerts.

Heima is a beautiful journey through both Iceland and Sigur Ros' return home.

Takk Sigur Ros.... Takk....
