A religious experience
Sometimes I go to a concert that completely reconfirms my belief in music. Last night was one of these.
I wish I was a writer so that I could describe this concert in words.
Jonsi's voice kind of washes over you as though you were standing under a waterfall. It's heavy and intense. You find yourself breathing in time with the drums. You close your eyes and let your head fall back. You want to open your arms and hold the sound. But you can't so it punches you in the chest and makes you gasp. There is nothing else but this sound. It's not even pretty or comforting now... it's almost painful. You close your eyes tighter to block it out when you think you can't take any more and you feel like you will fall over. And then it stops. And you breathe normally again. And then you smile.
