You're never too old to par-tay.

Unless you believe in all this 'afterlife' malarkey, it should be apparent to most people that you only get one chance at life. I suggest you take a leaf out of this old bird's book and damn well make the most of it!

The Beauty of the Dynamic

This is without a doubt one of my favourite pieces of music. The orchestration, the slow build-up, all equates to a phenomenally moving piece of music. Filming this live recording really shows how the numerous musical sections are arranged and pieced together, each part no less important that the next in creating the tear-provoking atmosphere achieved by Sigur Rós in so many of their works. Nine and a half minutes over way too soon.

Best experienced in a dark room, good earphones or speakers, and no distractions. Enjoy.
