Biography

Björk's seventh full-length album Biophilia, a multi-media project pairing 10 songs with corresponding iPad Apps, is her most conceptually complex. Track titles read like captions in a textbook -- "Moon," "Thunderbolt," "Virus," the first single "Crystalline" -- but each piece is filtered through Björk's personal connection to, and ...

5.0 out of 5 stars this is special 31 Aug 2003
By edwin
Format:Audio CD
needless to say, if you love bjork's studio albums, you'll love this, whether you've seen her in concert before or not. there are four cds of material, gathered together from her mtv-unplugged session for "debut" (the highlight, in my opinion), the 1997 shepherd's bush concert for "post", pretty much everywhere and anywhere for "homogenic", and again, during the 2001 world tour for "vespertine". you might have heard bits of it before, but there is nothing out there as comprehensive as this, or as brilliantly produced. occasional vocals in icelandic, accordian solos, talvin singh's tabla, and, of course, from her most recent tour, matmos, rubbing themselves lasciviously with various bits of electronic wizardry... and, oh, that voice... that voice.
for this price, you can't ask for more. (although there is also a looong interview and "bonus" dvd for those of you who DO ask for more.)

5.0 out of 5 stars All Is Full Of Love 27 Aug 2003
Format:Audio CD
The first time I heard whispers about Björk planning to release live versions of all her albums I was sceptical that it would even get off the ground, considering all the complaints circulating about the delays for the Royal Opera House DVD. Then the rumour was officially confirmed and I started to believe - but with some trepidation about the final product, as I envisaged having to buy all of the albums again. Then, when the format was announced as a box set, I feared it would turn out like the Family Tree set - overly-lavish and hence over-priced.
I was pleasantly surprised, then, when more details emerged and it became apparent that the box was going to be kept relatively unextravagant but by no means dull. The packaging is just a simple box containing the five individually sleeved CDs, which have printed on them not only the track information but also short appraisals of Björk’s work and some direct quotes from the artist herself. A separate booklet is also included, featuring pictures from live shows and an interview with Björk spanning topics across her entire solo career.
As for the CDs themselves, it isn’t just a case of the albums being matched song-for-song, there are plenty of extras to keep the fans content: a number of songs are repeated in slightly different renditions (such as Anchor Song and Human Behaviour), as well as a few of B sides being present (I Go Humble, an instrumental version of Vísur Vatnsenda-Rósu and Generous Palmstroke).
Debut is perhaps the most interesting of the four albums, with all of the songs except (Venus As A Boy) coming from an MTV Unplugged performance. Ordinarily, the term “unplugged” seems to suggest acoustic versions, stripped bare of any ostentations.

5.0 out of 5 stars Army of She 18 Aug 2006
Format:Audio CD
A friend of mine lent me his copy of Live Box back in 2003, demanding that I listen all the way through. Not being a huge fan, I raised my eyebrows at this. After all, this is Bjork - not the most accessible of artists. Or so I'd convinced myself.

Well, I did it. I took the plunge and I listened to the whole thing all the way through. Then I did it again. And again. And again. Then I gave back my poor buddy's now battered copy and bought my own.

This superb collection of live material is quite possibly the biggest revelation I've had as a music addict for years. I have to admit that I had built up this disturbing image of Bjork as a dotty, slightly maniacal, wailing banshee without ever actually listening to her music, and it was only upon ridding myself of these ridiculous preconceptions that I finally came to appreciate what an incredible talent this lady is.

The live arrangements and instrumentation (on the "Debut" set especially) are, quite simply, incredible. Hammonds, harps and harpsichords fight for space with violins, baritone saxophones, Spanish guitars, tablas and laptop microbeats. It's as a live vocalist, however, that Bjork's genius is fully realised. The infectious way in which she belts out those alien melodies that could only have come from Alpha Centauri or some such far-flung constellation is nothing short of spellbinding.

Having heard Bjork's studio records since acquiring this box set, I have been consistently astonished by her ability to destroy any barrier with which she finds herself faced.

5.0 out of 5 stars Crowning achievement for a unique performer 2 Aug 2004
Format:Audio CD
This is one of the best live sets I have listened to in many years. What makes it so great is that Bjork takes her recorded songs and gives it a unique twist in her live shows(with great results!).Alot of live performers do carbon copies of their studio songs ...not Bjork! If you are a fan of Bjork you will love this set and you will listen to it over and over.If you just like Bjork ,try this ...it may change your view point on what I consider one of the greatest artist of our time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant new Bjork Box set 28 Aug 2003
Format:Audio CD
Bjork has released a multitude of remixes and reworked versions of her tracks over the years but I was still totally blown away by the four CD's in this new box set. I think it's her best release to date. The MTV Unplugged 'Debut Live' CD is amazing, featuring Talvin Singh on Tablas ( the version of Big Time Sensuality is recommended). The 'Post' and 'Homogenic' Cd's have some of the best reworked versions of the album tracks that have been released and finally the 'Vespertine' CD is beautiful and makes me curse the fact that I have never seen Bjork live. The bonus DVD offers a track from each of the forthcoming or already released Live DVD's that are coming out. If you are a Bjork fan forget about 'Family Tree' and buy this immediately.
