Product Description

Product Description

On her first two solo albums, Debut and Post, Bjork covered a lot of sounds, smashing artistic boundaries with variations on pop, dance and jazz. In the process she sold over a million records and established herself as one of the most intriguing artists in pop. Now, on her new album Telegram, Bjork covers Bjork. Telegram takes Post's dissonant beats and textures even further, radically reconstructing nine of that album's tracks with the help of several renowned producers. These are not mere remixes. They're fresh interpretations of the originals that stand completely on their own, with entirely new vocals (most of which are complete live takes), arrangements, tempos and moods - performed with her unique combination of whimsy and sensuality.


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

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!

"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....

This is perhaps Björk's most underrated release. It is not a mere attempt from the record company to "cash in", but a collection compiled by the inspiring artist herself of equally inspired reworkings of some of the brilliant songs on her unforgettable landmark album Post, from 1995.
This remixed set is a partial hint of what was to come on her 1997 album, Homogenic, on which she did no-holds-barred, emotional, striking techno~punk pieces which so many artists are unadmittedly attempting to live up to to this day...(pick up all her albums for their greatness, and you'll see)
But, this album is filled with imaginative gems, some with new vocals, even. There are some remixes from the great vat of remixes from post that i would have included, perhaps in the place of "I miss you", which had already appeared anyway, but every remix here is enchanting.
The very first remix of Possibly Maybe, Björk says is among her favourites, and it's easy to see why...
There's a heart-wrenching Hyperballad reworking with the Brodsky Quartet; an awesome, vibrant and hard reworking of Enjoy...a lush, tear-inducing version of "you've been flirting again"...a pronounced voodoo-vibe version of army of me...
A funky remix for I miss you...and so much more!
Just explore the "emotional landscapes", as Björk says;)

An album of dance remixes often signals the end of a musicians career. However, while for most a remix album is a last effort to squeeze a few pennies out of some collectors, Bjork has gone back to the drawing board and redesigned all the songs from 1995's wonderful "Post" from scratch.
It seems that Bjork got all her best remixer friends together, and let them have it with whatever song they wanted. The album opens with LFO's version of "Possibly Maybe," a song that sounds nice for the first few seconds on the album, but overall is really boring. Mark Bell of LFO did extensive work with Bjork on "Homogenic" so I can't imagine why his version of "Possibly Maybe" turned out this bad. Luckily, next we get the Brodsky Quartet (who else?) doing "Hyperballad." It's not a far cry from the original version, and although I do miss the breezy brush-drumming, this version still packs the same punch as the original.
In the original "Enjoy," Bjork sounded perfectly greedy with the sound of a loud bass-driven beat backing her every word. And if that one wasn't noisy enough for you, this one just pounds on the static. I can't say I love it. "My Spine" is the only original song on the album, and it sounds like the type of music that Bjork should've been making from the start. Xylophone and exhaust pipe music! The kooky sound compliments the intonations that only Bjork can pull off. The Dobie version of "I Miss You" is good, but that's only becasue it infuses just a bit of hip-hop to the original perfect song.
The new version of "Isobel" brings the song to Brazil, where it sounded like it wanted to go in the first place.
