Format: DVD
It is a pleasure to see a decent release of Bjork live on DVD. The disc contains her MTV unplugged performance in 1994 and a more recent live recording from 1998.
The 1994 recording is a real treat. Seeing her in an eccentric florescent yellow mini dress singing out her debut songs with childish glee reminds us why she captured the world's imagination with the launch of her debut solo album. The unplugged set is typically minimalist but included a huge number of accompanying musicians, including a harpist and a person playing tuned water filled wine glasses. Hearing her voice ringing out clearly over unplugged instruments is delightful. The show easily compares with the brilliant "Nirvana Unplugged" which was recorded the same year.
The second show is a little more run of the mill and disappointing. Although it is live, the footage has been enormously enhanced so it looks more like an additional set of pop music videos. Also, the music mix seems to completely drown out her singing with synth drums and keyboards. Still an enjoyable watch, but nothing very intimate.
I recommend buying this together with her music video compilation.

Format: DVD
This DVD features two seperate live performances performed by Björk for MTV. The first is her 1994 performance on MTV unplugged, made a year after releasing her debut solo album, "debut". Unsuprisingly then, the set-list runs like a live version of this seminal album, which by no means is a bad thing. Highlights include a beautifully stripped down version of 'Human Behaviour', a refreshingly different take on 'Big Time Sensuality' and a stark, earthy rendition of 'Anchor Song'. Very good stuff.
However, the real treat comes with the second live performance, made more recently for MTV. Directed by Russel Thomas, the performance at times feels more like a David Lynch film than a live show. Special camera effects and lighting are used to create a claustraphobic, dark and bizarre feel- super-imposed goldfish anyone? Camera-work aside, this 1998 set effectively shows how Bjork had evolved her styles over four very busy years. Here her band consists of just a string octet and a set of decks, and the result is five string-laden renditions of mellow Björk tracks, plus a gutsy, heavier version of Homogenic's "Pluto". The stand-out track of the set, and indeed the DVD, is the wonderful string-drenched version of "Joga", although this is closely followed by all five of the other tracks. An absolute gem.
Negatively, the layout of the actual DVD is very basic, but gets the job done. Also, the track list on my copy of the DVD is wrong- not that it matters a great deal.
MTV viewers who have already seen these performances will no doubt need little convincing to buy a copy of this. To the rest of you- don't miss out, buy it now!

Format: DVD
On reviewing this DVD, I was divided in opinion; although the MTV Unplugged performance is very good, the later MTV Live performance is of a clear sub-standard.
Bjork's opening performance of "Human Behaviour" for the Unplugged session sets the mood for the rest of the performance- stripped, sublime and definitely arousing. I was personally interested in the way that more dance-orientated material like "Big Time Sensuality" would be translated into an unplugged environment. And the end results were very pleasing- the material retains some link with the original, but numbers like "One Day" and "Aeroplane" show a more intimate side to the songs from "Debut" (this performance focuses on the songs from that album). Although Bjork's verbal interaction with the audience consists of two words, her performance is eccentric, captivating and (most importantly)- genuine.
Unfortunately, the second part of the DVD (the MTV Live session) is of variable quality. Perhaps, as a way of showing the contrast between the unplugged session and this one, the producers tried to do everything the opposite. There are bright sets, re-mixed music and computer graphics, but unfortunately the music ultimately suffers. Whilst the range of music is limited to the albums "Post" and "Homogenic", songs like "Isobel" and "Joga" are barely audible, and Bjork's beautiful voice is drowned out by the music.
Overall, I would recommend this only for the unplugged performance. Even though the live set is visually stimulating, it lets down the wonderful performances we have come to expect from the world's most famous Icelander.

Format: DVD
At long last, we have been treated to some of Bjork's great live performances on three great new DVDs, and two of them are available on this one exceptional value DVD! The only downsides on this DVD are that the track titles are a bit confused on the cover, and there is seemingly only a mono audio track for the Unplugged material. These points aside, it is a fabulous buy - and absolutely essential to all Bjork addicts out there!
