I have no doubt of that. Sigur Rós is right up there with Agalloch and Alcest on my list of bands to see live. I would actually expect it to be better than a GY!BE show.

I just don't agree. Maybe I'm not getting it, but I think Cold Dead Place is waaaaaaay better. It's probably my favorite album of theirs. To me there's just not a song on Take Care, Take Care, Take Care that measures up to "First Breath After Coma," "The Only Moment We Were Alone," or "Your Hand in Mine." Maybe it just needs some time to sink in. EITS isn't really the type of music though that I'd expect to 'take time to sink in,' so...
