It is almost needless to say, that these are some of the best, most innovative videos ever made. Björk is always able to find and collaborate with groundbreaking artists (not only directors as but remixers, producers etc. as well)
Take for instance the "All is full of love" video - Chris Cunningham have created a modern classic. Even some of my friends (who hates Björk!!!) admits, that this musicvideo is the best they've ever seen.
Until now "Alarm call" has only been available on VHS or on a special japanese 2 dvd edition of Volumen.
The tracklist is as follows:
01. Human behaviour (directed by Michel Gondry)
02. Venus as a boy (Sophie Muller)
03. Play dead (Danny Cannon)
04. Big time sensuality (Stéphane Sednaoui)
05. Violently happy (Jean-Baptiste Mondino)
06. Army of me (Michel Gondry)
07. Isobel (Michel Gondry)
08. It's oh so quiet (Spike Jonze)
09. Hyperballad (Michel Gondry)
10. Possibly maybe (Stéphane Sednaoui)
11. I miss you (John Kricfalusi)
12. Joga (Michel Gondry)
13. Bachelorette (Michel Gondry)
14. Hunter (Paul White)

However, the quality of the videos is breathtaking, with directors such as Michel Gondry, Chris Cunningham and Spike Jonze all capturing the spirit of Bjork's beautiful music with much grace and aplomb.
And that is the bottom line. If you like Bjork's music you'll probably welcome a visual interpretation of songs like Possibly Maybe and Joga. If not - well, like I said, you should.
The DVD is put together very slickly. Whilst the menus are not enormously interesting, it does give the presentation a stylish format.
The quality of the videos themseves are first rate. The picture, sound and special surround sound features are of a very high standard - this is clearly not a cheap video transfer that can be seen on lots of DVD pop video releases.
My only criticism is that it might have been nice include as a bonus some Sugarcube material, making ofs and promotional material from "Dancer in the Dark". This was probably due to copyright reasons though.

I have admired Bjork from a distance as an original artist. However after hearing 'Venus as a boy' on a film track I decided to take the plunge and buy some of her music. Read morePublished on 28 Mar. 2007 by Graham Dean
As visionary as her music is, Bjork's videos are a definite no-miss. Each and every video is characteristic and full-bodied. Read morePublished on 9 Dec. 2002 by Dogville
A must have for all Bjork fans, but a little disappointing in the fact that it does not contain the video for 'All Is Full Of Love' which is totally amazing... Read morePublished on 21 Sept. 2001 by mark stanley
