When Björk said she was releasing a charity album with lots of covers and remixes of her Army of Me song, I was a bit dubious. I didn't think it would be very good. But as a huge Björk fan, I went and bought it, as anything with the word Björk on it, I must own.
This album has 20 versions of the song. All the artists sent their tracks through Björk's website, and the best ones were selected to be on this CD. How different can 20 tracks of the same song be? Amazing, they all sound like different songs.
Track 1 is a a heavy rock version of it, by a band called Interzone. They sound like Marilyn Manson, it is probably the best track on the album. Track 2 is a beautful ballad with some lovely vocals by Grisbi. Track 4 is very funny, it's a country and western version of it by The Messenger of God, another great track!
Even the remixes are good, as quite often, remixes can just sound rubbish. There is even an accordion version of Army of me on there. Basically, there is a track for everyone here, I think it covers almost all musical tastes. Whilst you may not like every track on here, any Björk fan should own this, the added bonus is that the money sold from this CD goes to Charity.
