Sigur Ros - Saeglopur CD/DVD Maxi-Single Review

by Jeff K

.
Sigur Ros is one of the most amazing bands around today. The band is more than capable of evoking the kind of emotion out of the listener that few bands can accomplish. One of their strongest points, album after album, is their ability to sit inside a song so patiently, so as to pull every possibility out of every track.

Fans who picked up 2005's Takk know the cd's first track, "Saeglopur". One of the most beautiful songs on that outing, it was a perfect choice for the release of a maxi-single, just a year after the song's original release. The remaining tracks, "Refur", "O Fridur", and "Kafari" do leave a little bit to be desired, but that statement is only relative to the great songs they have released time after time over past albums.

What stands out for many, especially stateside, is the DVD part of this release. The dvd showcases videos from the Takk album. "Saeglopur", equally stunning visually as the song is in and of itself, starts out the DVD. Also included are "Glosoli", and "Hoppipolla", both of which are well shot and fitting for their respective songs.

All in all, this isn't an absolute must-have for Sigur Ros fans, but it does add nicely to a library of already amazing material from an equally amazing band.
