Bjork Live

So I’ve been having a good time with my emusic subscription, although admittedly sometimes I wonder month to month whether there will be albums there that I’ll really want. So far, the Miles Davis, John Coltrane, and Bjork selections have been enough to justify my monthly subscription fee.
This month, for example, I’ve downloaded the majority of Bjork’s Live Box, which is four CDs – one for each of her four independent albums prior to Medulla. It’s really, really great stuff. I was bummed that I missed a recent tour she had, but being able to listen to all these tracks from concerts has been wonderful. Highly recommended if you’re a Bjork fan.
On the other hand, I’ve been listening to tracks she did for the soundtrack of Drawing Restraint 9, and I’m totally not grokking them. It’s a soundtrack album, not an ALBUM album, but urk. I loved the Dancer in the Dark soundtrack though. Hmmm.

    Ok dude…I think I like a lot of the same music you do…but Bjork!?!? You’re kidding right? I think getting Yoko Ono and Bjork to sing a duet would qualify their CD as a WMD. 🙂

    How can you not like Bjork? She’s awesome! Crazy, but absolutely great. 🙂

    Uggh…I think my distaste for her has more to do with just not getting past the freakishly weird persona she has built. Some of her stuff is borderline ok, but it seems like it is too much over the top “tortured artist” for my taste.
    Now, if you want to hear some slammin’ music from ANOTHER band from Reykjavik, Iceland (same city as Bjork), then check out “Stick em’ up” and “Baseline” are great songs full of energy. Kind of like The Beastie Boys meet Linkin Park.
