OK, I own fiftysomething Björk discs, and this is not one of my favorites. I am perfectly willing to shell out a chunk of change for a disc with only one good track as long as that track is great. This is not.
If you want good singles from <<Debut>> try the remixes disc, otherwise don't bother unless you are buying it just to fill a gap in a collection.

This is one of the songs that started it all...back in the day...the phenomenon we call Björk. (at least, shown to the world)
It's filled with dreamy groove...intriguing lyrics...violins...exoticness...everything!;^)
The Anglo-American version is great as well, and it also features the haunting bonus track Stígðu Mig, and the sweet hark-back song "I Remember You", recorded with the same harpist who worked with her on the companion song "Like Someone In Love" for Debut.
There is also a groovy 12 minute tribal-sounding remix to Human Behaviour done by Underworld, and a fun non-toilet mix of "There's More To Life Than This".
So buy this irresistible and fun release, and fall in love!:-)

Great b-sides. I wish her current EPs/singles were more like this.
Recommended.

One of the essential in a sea of EPs. "I Remember You" is a great jazz standard and the remixes are top notch. Bjork's voice is amazing as ever and she looks extra cute on the cover!

This isn't one of my favorite Bjork songs, but I still think it's great. This is to be expected since Bjork is an outstanding vocalist and songwriter. The remix of VENUS AS A BOY loses some of the playfulness of the original version, while gaining a more gutteral intensity. It's a great variation on the sexual nature of this song. There are also some great b-sides on this single that are great to have whether your a die-hard Bjork fan or not. "Stigdu Mig" is beautifully sung in Icelandic and features a haunting acoustic guitar. "I Remember You" features some the most emotional, heartfelt singing I've ever heard. Just for this song alone, I would buy this single. Her voice ranges from a sweet whisper to a powerful yelp. Toward the end of the song, her voice quivers with a gritty quality. I applaud her for courageously expressing her raw vulnerability in this song. This is another masterpiece by Bjork!
