Sleeve notes by Evelyn Glennie about Björk tracks:
"My Spine" is from a group of pieces Björk and myself wrote and experimented with during our initial meeting. I say "experiment" because that is exactly what we did in my recording studio.
"Oxygen" was the first experiment Björk and I made back in 1995. Everything we did we recorded; this piece, with all the pops, rattles and other unrefined noises, shows that this was a totally spontaneous effort - without 'makeup' or doctoring of any kind. This is how I like to make music.
