Product Description

Amazon.ca

The Icelandic iconoclast is a past master of deconstructing her studio recordings, and here she plays an active role in helping a crew of remixers and guest artistes get medieval with tracks off 1995's Post. Trip-hop, jungle, and industrial flavors will draw the Tricky crowd, and Brodsky Quartet puts a string-driven spin on "Hyperballad," but it's the lush Deodata treatment of "Isobel" that'll make your head spin. --Jeff Bateman

5.0 out of 5 stars A reconstruction of a deconstruction Feb. 22 2004
Format:Audio CD
I'll be perfectly honest. Before getting this I was never a Bjork fan. Apart from Army of Me which I thought was great I wasn't sure what to think about her. And to any DJ who played It's Oh So Quiet just made me sick - that was a song that should never have been released but then it fitted with popular demand didn't it
I came across this CD when in Germany and noticed in the booklet it said that she was very happy that the mixers used her songs as " ingredients " for their mixing desks. And I thought I might as well give it a go. I was hoping they would destroy her songs into pieces and make it completely unrecognizable from what it was. And I'm pretty sure that's what I got in some cases - so much so that it frightened me!
Now I don't know whether this'll make me a diehard Bjork fan but I could happily enjoy this album for all it's worth and it's recommended to both fans and the interested parties

2.0 out of 5 stars Meant For...??? Feb. 18 2004
Format:Audio CD
Even I, being a huge Bjork fan didn't get this CD release...
I cringe at some of the remixes...it's too bad such a fantastic artist as Bjork has to have this ""album"" on her resume. Ah Well...

2.0 out of 5 stars For BIG fans of Bjork ONLY ! Jan. 18 2004
By Guiglou
Format:Audio CD
I love this artist and I was expected some great surprises with this CD, I was finally very disappointed.It is not interesting at all.Most of the songs that all fans already know and have on several records, are remixed by different people and the result is at the end, impossible to listen for most of them.It's boring and even the great Bjork melodies sound crap or nothing like the originals. It was maybe a lot of fun for them to make such a stuff but I am not sure, the fans will share this excitement.
Get this Cd if you really want to collect all her releases and if you don't care what it's on it.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best OLD mixes of a masterpiece Oct. 21 2003
Format:Audio CD
Just forget that incomplete promotion skills and rumours that came on that time that it would be a reworked version of Post. Actually you'll find here a superb collection of some of the best remixes great musicians did for songs from one of this singer's masterpieces, BUT an important detail must be mentioned: nothing is really new here, and ALL OF THESE SONGS were previously released as b-sides of her UK Post singles. But if you aren't a hardcore fan who owns everything she releases, you're certainly gonna find good music here and a big photo session used for the booklet. The first track, Mark Bell's version for Possibly Maybe, is one of Björk's favourites and anticipated their future work together; another Björk favourite, Brazilian Eumir Deodato's rework of Isobel (with brand new vocals recorded specially for it), is one of this collection's highlights, and the mixes of Headphones, Enjoy, Army Of Me Cover Me ans I Miss You can'te be fogotten. These songs were totally transformed! My personal favourite mixes, Boadsky QWuartet's Hyperballad and Björk's You've Been Flirting Again shine in this collection, and My Spine, IOSQ's b-side with Evelyn Glennie, appeared in its simple gourgeous original form.
I just don't understand what the album version of I Miss You is doing in the end of the US-version, but I am always glad to listen to that. GREAT album!

4.0 out of 5 stars an average work of björk Oct. 15 2003
By selim
Format:Audio CD
It is not really necessary to buy but,it is a björk record.I
liked it but,the remixes in it are the most needles ones which
are in the singles of post.Although,'Possibly Maybe(Lucy mix)'
and 'My Spine' are perfect,there are better björk b-sides and
remixes.
'Telegram' could be like this:
1.Karvel
2.Charlene
3.I Go Humble
4.Army of Me (featuring Skunk Snansie)
5.Possibly Maybe (Lucy mix)
6.Army of Me (Massey mix)
7.My Spine
I think the best songs of björk are her b-sides but,they are
not really known as much as some of her annecessary boring
songs.I don't understant why generally her some average songs
are more promoted and available.

5.0 out of 5 stars "My Spine" Sept. 21 2003
Format:Audio CD
"Telegram" is like the remix album of "Post"... as we all know...
"Telegram" was commissioned personally by Björk to include artists she highly reveres and the brief remained for them to remix the tracks with total freedom.
She co-produced the haunting "My Spine" with the song's percussionist Evelyn Glennie and, along with "Hyperballad" and "Isobel", this track was recorded live and acoustic, avoiding the recording "tricknology" usually associated with the remix process. Mixing duties were also split with Markus Dravs on the wonderfully rich "You've Been Flirting Again". Despite her involvement vocally, she has also allowed her songs to be completely deconstructed as LFO proved with their spacey version of "Possibly Maybe", as did Dobie with a hip hop excursion through "I Miss You".
A collection of songs that have grown and developed fresh meaning, Björk's natural instinct to veer from the original blueprint of her songs is proved right with Telegram....

5.0 out of 5 stars Björk fans will delight! Aug. 14 2003
By Trevor
Format:Audio CD
Telegram is an ethereal trip through Björk's "Post" tinted by a refreshingly new perspective. I would recommend this album for the Björk fan who has exhausted their ears listening to all of Björk's stuff: Telegram brings a new spin on several Björk classics, many of which could stand on their own, without the designation of being "remixes". It took me awhile to get into it, but now it's my favorite music to put on in the background while I check my e-mail or chat with some friends. If Post is a forest, Telegram is that forest with thick pea-soup fog everywhere, and strange creatures popping out at every turn. Totally ethereal and totally addictive. Björk fans delight!
