The vocal version of "Hidden Place" is simply breathtaking; without the squishy noises of pudding through straws or card-shuffle beats provided by Matmos on the Edit version (which are by no means bad, either), the lyrics really come through. A real highlight is the whole verse in the middle of the song that was cut out completely from the Edit, in which Bjork sings my favorite lines: "There lies my passion hidden/ there lies my love/ I'll hide it under a blanket/ lull it to sleep." There are also two B-Sides. "Mother Heroic" features a celesta combined with resonant vocals. The final song, "Foot Soldier" is reminescent of two of Bjork's Homogenic-era songs, "Hunter" and "My Snare," with a Vespertine flavor. The lyrics are like "Hunter"'s and the groovy, mellow beat is like "My Snare"'s. This song that starts out mellow , however, quickly crescendos into an all-out war cry: "you go first/ conquer the darkness!" An exellent companion to "Hidden Place pt. One."

This is a perfect single. The acapella version of Hidden Place is wonderful. i don't want to say its better than the original, but it definitely is as good as it. the choir is truly amazing, and of course björk is amazing as well. it makes Hidden Place more special to listen to. Mother Heroic is probably the most angelic song by björk i would say. The lyrics are amazing. The celeste is soft and lush, with björk's voice on top, high and airy with tons of emotion and a heavenly melody. I wish it was on vespertine so that more people could hear it. Foot Soldier is a trippy song co-written by mark bell (who also co-wrote pluto). the best part about it is that björk is playing harp!!! but the song itself is great. it seems to get more agressive as it goes along, just angrier as it goes. Then ends mysteriously. it slightly reminds me of Heirloom. so all in all, this is a great buy, and definitely worth your money. maybe it should cost more. definitely one of my favorite björk singles.

My first introduction to her new round of material, this CD is great. The acappella version of HIDDEN PLACE is just as essential as the original. It is much easier to focus on the beauty of her lyrics and nuances of her voice in this gorgeous song about nurturing a secret love nestled inside, never to be expressed. Both of the nonalbum tracks - the nurturing MOTHER HEROIC and trodding FOOT SOLDIER - are lovely and unique (especially the former). Recommended to intense Björk collectors and some of her newer fans (jumping into her later material).
