I think their live energy really sold their show for me. This live album captures that energy pretty well.

What's everyone's opinion of Kveikur so far? It's arguably their hardest hitting and most accessible album they've ever written. I'm not entirely sure it will even make it into my favorite albums list for 2013, but it's definitely an important and interesting twist in Sigur Ros' ever-evolving discography. Fox said this might finally be the album that opens the door to their other releases for him, so I'd be very satisfied if this ends up turning into a great introductory album for people new to the band.

I really like it, However I think that it benefits from the fact that I was able to see some of the songs live before the album came out so there is already a sense of "nostalgia" associated with it...I agree with the statement that it is there most "easily accessible" album and my only real problem with the album is that it seems almost too short, but good things often do.
I actually think it would have been really awesome if they released it alongside Valtari as a double album. It almost sounds like the heavy counterpiece to that one, which was one of the quieter albums they've ever put out. Sort of a light and dark contrast. Opeth's "Deliverance and Damnation" release was such a cool fucking idea in that same sense.

I am making my way through the new Laura Marling - Once I Was An Eagle..The thing that sticks out to me is how beautiful and seamless the transitions between songs are, so much so, I was having a hard time realizing when one song ended and another began and all of a sudden the mood would change but it would be halfway through a song..
