Bjork is renowned for reworkings of her songs, both in terms of live performances (The Vespertine Live album is phenomenal) and remixes, and this is probably where you'll find the best and most-diverse collection of remixes. I was quite dissapointed by the remixes of tracks off Debut that I heard, and as Post is my least favourite Bjork record I didn't expect anything special from this collection. However, I now regard this a significant part of the Bjork oeuvre. The Evelyn Glennie version of My Spine stands out, partially as it isn't on the UK version of Post, but mostly because of its simultaneous expression of violence and tenderness (so typically Bjork). The remix of Headphones (I forget who did it) is deeper and darker than the original, and, like the original, definitely deserves to be listened to on headphones. There's just so much in there.
This is far from just a cash-cow or a chance for Bjork's mates to get an airing. It's set the benchmark that all remix albums have to reach, and the only one that i've found since that i've enjoyed as much is Recoloured by Nils Petter Molvaer (the reworkings of his Solid Ether album).
As an afterthought, I also found going back to Post much more rewarding after listening to Telegram.

You’ve got to hand it to Björk. Even when she is involved in schemes with more of a whiff of “cash-cow” about them than others, she is still savvy enough to give it an idiosyncratic twist that will let you forgive her instantly. It also helps that often the results aren’t too bad either. "Debut’s" remix EP, "The Best Mixes From The Album “Debut” For People Who Don’t Buy White Labels", was given limited fanfare and a paper sleeve and her later ‘Greatest Hits’ package received two incarnations (a single CD compiled by fans via web vote and a thirty-five track set spanning twenty five years). The most successful of these cash-ins would prove to be this, the remix EP for "Post", involving an eclectic bunch of collaborators and music mates, providing Björk with her most experimental release to date. If you thought Post was diverse, be prepared for something incredibly different altogether …
Of course, remix EPs defy concepts and thematic allusions that most people would write about concerning albums, so much must be said about Björk’s choice of music aficionados that pepper the album in all varying genres and sounds. In the classical corner we have the Brodsky Quartet, who give “Hyperballad” a riveting workout, and trusted collaborator Eumir Deodato, who gives us a luscious live lounge performance of “Isobel” and the epic swoon of “You’ve Been Flirting Again” in his and Björk’s own re-workings respectively.

I never thought I would buy a re-mixed album that I already own...

This album is great to play on the stereo (bit much just on your own in earphones) ...it's cool, dreamy, with wicked beats. If you like Bjork, and you like her Post album, this is a good cd to add to your collection!

this album is definately not your average bjork. It gives these songs a delicious twist the remixes are all amazingly done not a bad one among them, if you want to hear drum and bass merged with bjork or something strange like that, i suggest you give this a listen, at the moment this is my favorite bjork album out of all of them. Including selmas songs, sugarcubes albums, gling-glo, and all her other studio albums, anyway you get the picture if you like bjork you will not be dissapointed by this in any way its amazing, especailly the covers of hyperballad and isobel with string quartets!.

This is an excellent album of some of Bjork's b-sides. The sounds that this album holds are eclectic, so there is bound to be at least one or two songs that everyone will enjoy. Listen to the Schwabsky Quartet version of 'Hyperballad' - personally gives me goosebumps. An original and moving album of one of the most intriguing musicians i have heard. If you are a fan of Bjork's incredible lyrics and experimental style then i definitely recommend that you buy 'Telegram'.
