"This was my first Björk DVD of a concert, so I wasn't sure what to expect when I popped it into my DVD player. Being a rabid Björk fan, I was expecting to like whatever I saw, and I wasn't disappointed. Opening with the Icelandic String Octet warming up, the energy builds up as the familiar beats to "Hunter" start the evening. Björk then shows up in a short plain white dress, with a very interesting twist: it's almost as if she has butterfly wings when she raises her hands from her side, because of the design of the dress. Hard to describe but very interesting. And thus begins this trip through Björk songs from Debut, Homogenic, and Post. As she goes through the songs, you can always notice quirky little add-ons to the songs that you don't hear on the albums, such as at the end of "Hunter", Björk reels out "You just didn't know me, you just didn't know me"; which isn't on the Homogenic version of the song. Also on the poignant Anchor Song, Björk delights us with an exotic-sounding Icelandic version of the song, but then switches to the English version for a second round. Post's "You've Been Flirting Again" is also rendered in a very intimate Icelandic, as she croons quietly. It all ends with Björk thanking the audience in her ever-so-cute accent, and directing the audience's applause to the breathtaking Icelandic String Octet and the "fantabulous" (as described by Björk) Mark Bell. If you're a Björk fan, this is a delightful experience you're sure to enjoy on a slow autumn day, maybe with some iced-tea, curled up with your cat or dog."
