Man muss die Stimme der kleinen Diva Björk schon mögen, sonst kann man sich nicht in ihren Bann ziehen lassen. Zunächst einmal vorweg: Diese Platte ist nicht für Abende gedacht, an denen man später noch weg gehen will. Die ganze Platte ist in einem traurigen Ton gehalten, wobei besonders einzelnen Wörter bzw. Textpassagen im Ohr hängen bleiben, wie "I love him" ("Pagan poetry"), "To a boy" ("Cocoon"), "Hidden place" und "Nature is ancient". Letzteres ist nur als Video auf der beiliegenden DVD erhältlich - diese fünf enthaltenen Videos werten die CD insgesamt noch ein wenig auf. Da fließt Tränenflüssigkeit über das Gesicht von Björk in Großaufnahme ("Hidden place"), Körperstellen werden in verschwommenen Grautönen gezeigt, inklusive Piercingprozeduren ("Pagan poetry"). Ebenfalls wird Björk als nackte Schaufensterpuppe in einen "Cocoon" gewickelt oder wandelt als Däumeline nachts durch einen Wald. Zur Musik sei noch folgendes gesagt: Bei "Cocoon" gibt es Töne im Hintergrund, die an Massive Attack erinnern, das Instrumentalstück "Frosti" wird per Spieluhr erzeugt und die Hintergrundgeräusche in "Unison" klingen wie ein großes Kinderkarussell auf einem Jahrmarkt. Übrigens ist der Song der einzige, der keinen traurigen Touch hat.
Zusammenfassung: Björk ist ein Phänomen, welches sich mir erst spät erschlossen hat, dann aber gewaltig über mich kam.

Very good sounding pressing. Maybe the best sound you can get on a Björk record (many releases on vinyl have a compressed and muffled sound). Sounds very clean, open, dynamic and crisp. Quiet surface. Recommended...

beautiful album. Micro beats are creative and sick as hell. the Choir shines and her voice is amazing. Most songs are about her fucking song dude tho.
Favourite song: Pagan Poetry

This seems an appropriate place to write this: I have noticed a VERY slow trickle of cassette releases over the past years, usually in limited editions or for special promos.

So people have a special machine just to play these singular outings? I am surprised people still bother with cassettes - I thought they died with the Sony Walkman. The potential for unravelling and stretching with such a flimsy tape was too much for the collector.

But I am guessing the sound quality is more reliable? I'd be interested to know who finds the caseette attractive, and why . . .

Just received this in the mail from a marketplace seller and noticed the disc labels and the back of the jacket state “Made in the EU” But the Japanese hype sticker states “Made in Japan” can anyone confirm if this is the case with their copies as well?

Björk's best studio album for my money. Good pressing with wide, sweeping, cinematic stereo sound. Glad this got reissued as it is a nice option for those who find an original too cost-prohibitive.

Amazing sound quality, very happy with this pressing. Only issue I had was one of the discs has a subtle outer edge warp. Other than that no complaints. Packaging is excellent as well.
