"Army of Me" is a charity record to benefit UNICEF (The United Nations International Emergency Fund). It's as stylistically varied as the song's originator--the officially commissioned remixes incorporate the extreme metal of Canada's Interzone to the Spanish country take of The Messengers of God, via electroclash and accordion interpretations.
Top Customer Reviews
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.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
This album is a mixed bag from artists all over the world--France, UK, Canada, US, Sweden--and the results range from wonderful (track 2) to kitschy (tracks 7 & 20) to just plain awful (tracks 1,4,5,18). The majority of the tracks are elrctronica, but my favorite cut on the entire album is a bossa nova version by a French duo called Grisbi.
Hardcore Bjork fans will no doubt pick this tribute to one of her best songs up without a second thought. However, the casual Bjork or electronica fan will definitely want to click on over to Bjork's official website to hear some samples before spending their cash on a mixed bag such as this and may want to skip the album and donate to UNICEF directly.
