Well in all truthfulness I don't actually own this single but it doesn't make me any less qualified to write a review... I downloaded both Hidden Places and Verandi and found them both to be hypnotic and engaging. Since I first heard the dancable Post about a year ago I have never really considered myself a fan of longevity but am slowly moving toward that belief. Most older fans of Bjork seem disappointed by her sudden transaction of sound, while I, on the other hand, find it much appealing and satisfactory to my tastes. She still carries electronic beats and wacky vocal styles, which have made her a household name, but it's just more grinded into the background, as is her new take on morbid choir singing. This technique, though, proves most excellent here in complementing the rich layering of orchestration accompanied by subtle electronic grooves and, of course, Bjork's own creative self.
In one word, Ravishing.
P.S. In case you're wondering why I rated this 4-stars it is simply because of the fact that I've never before heard Generous Palmstroke... though I'm sure (just like everything else by this great artist) it is stunning beyond words.

Bjork's latest releases in the spirit of the forthcoming Vespertine live in the top percentile of her repertoire. There is much love in this music, especially "A Hidden Place" (one of her best ever). Personally, I find the lyrics especially rewarding. So far, these singles are even better than Vespertine as a whole. But if you're debating between singles, this first one is more essential than the second. I have all her (tons of) singles; if I only were allowed to keep five, Hidden Place Part 1 would be in that bunch of keepers. All the sound is, of course, in keeping with her new musical theme: sacred, fragile. "Generous Palmstroke" and "Verandi" belong on a solid five star album. Buried treasures here, folks. Naturally, an EP combining both Hidden Place singles will probably released many months in the future at fairer price (as has happened in the past) for those who are patient and willing to take that chance - but can you wait that long?

This is a 3-Track CD single from the U.K. that comes in a standard album-style jewel case with a front insert (but no back insert). The tracks are as follows:
1. Hidden Place (Edit): At my first listen I was thinking, "wow this is really edited nicely, I can't even tell where they cut parts out of it"...utnil the end, whcih is the WORST ending they could have produced for this song. Instead of fading out, the song ABRUPTLY ends. It's like a slap in the face if you've heard the album version. I thought there was an error on my disc when i first heard the song end.
2. Generous Palmstroke: Good B-Side. Kind of has an Asian vibe going.
3. Verandi: Another B-Side. The previous one was softer than this one. This one has more beats.

Bjork does it again and this (the first single off her new album) single shows a different side to everyone's favourite icelandic pixie. "Hidden Place" is one of the best songs off the album..it is deeply introspective and wistful.
However the real highlight of this disc is the 2 bsides. Generous Palmstroke is sheer genius...the first mintue or so hauls you in. Verdanthi as well is wonderful.
The only reason this doesn't get 5 stars is because of the price and the fact that the Hidden Place single (pt 2) has another 3 great songs. Why they didn't just put it on one maxi single is beyond me.
