5.0 out of 5 stars Totally worth the Money! Aug. 28 2003
Format:DVD
I bought this DVD for many reasons. One reason is because I wanted to see Bjork's videos. I have never seen a full Bjork Video, ever since I heard of her. She's got this great sound, which pulls me deeper and deeper into her music, but I haven't had a good visual interpretation of her.
So, I took the chance and bought the DVD. I'm happy to say that this collection of videos is amazing! The clarity in the picture, the sound, the editing, and the choice of videos is excellent.
Bjork hasn't changed that much. Video #1 (Human Behavior) is so cute and she seems to be really innocent. But in others like "Possibly Maybe", "Play Dead", "Pagan Poetry" and "Hunter"...they are all so different. Bjork never looks the same way twice. She's such a chameleon, and she's really pretty too! I love her facial expressions, which do happen to bring out a hidden beauty about her.
I think my favourite video of all, is the one for "Possibly Maybe". This song in general is so dramatic, and I love the lyrics. The image of her floating in the screen with big hair is so lovely! The way they made her up in 6 different ways, and the lighting effects they used for the background is all really stunning! I love the way they gave her the puffed up hair, when she gets to the "Electric shocks...i love them..." part. Her makeup is so dramatic, and I have never looked at her as an image of beauty until now.
The entire DVD is quite long, considering there are some really short DVDs out there. But this one is perfect. It's like a real long story, and each song is a new chapter.
This is the tracklist and a little thought on each one:
Human Behavior: I like seeing her in a remote scene like this.

4.0 out of 5 stars The goods, and the not so good. Feb. 11 2004
Format:DVD
Having bought Volumen on VHS, I didn't feel too cheated when I bought Greatest Hits on DVD, even though most of the material was the same. I'm sure that some fans would have liked some interviews, a la Vessel, but this is a tremendous amount of music on one DVD, so it's hard to complain.
Looking back on this retrospective, I realize how much the "cute factor" was employed early on. Cute, as in "oh, Bjork looks cute cooking an egg, or look at her eat that slice of watermelon." Not to say that Venus as a Boy or Possibly Maybe were bad videos. The one video that has weathered the worst, in my mind, is Violently Happy. Basically, it's one big euro-trash cliche, by a director that had much greater success with Madonna. I understand the whole insane-asylum concept, but cutting up a teddy bear, and shaving your heard, and clipping Raggedy Ann is too cliched for me.
The first really good video is Army of Me. We must be thankful that this wasn't released post-9/11...I can only think of how the conservative right would have had a field day with this. This was a dark moment in Bjork's life (yes, she b@#^h slapped that reporter). It's interesting how she saves an Asian man...
I can't help but feel that there's a political message there.
Another fantastic video is Isobel, with its sepia tones. Wonderful concept.
From her third album, Joga is kind of a downer, not enough Bjork in there, but Bachelorette and Hunter are superb, especially Hunter, with Bjork unleashing her inner animal. I was blown away the first time I saw it. The main draw from this period, though is All is Full of Love. Someone I know says its disturbing, because underneath our skin we are just bones, not too different from the half-assembled robots in the video.

5.0 out of 5 stars This Is Art Oct. 12 2003
By A Customer
Format:DVD
The work & creativity that was put into the music & videos on this collection is immeasurable. It should be clear by now that everything Björk touches turns to gold. The elements in the music combine with the elements in the video so well, & you can notice that in many videos the beats in the music & the images on the screen are strongly linked. This might sound obvious to mention, but it's not when most music videos today are made up of bland clichés. This DVD brings back memories from a time when MTV actually played quality art (I'm not joking), when videos by artistes such as Radiohead, Björk, Beck & Peter Gabriel were all part of the channel's regular play-list. Actually, I remember that when the Post & Homogenic videos were new they were played very frequently, compared to the following videos which were only played on MTV:New or not at all ("Nature Is Ancient" was never played in its entirety for all I know). It's a shame that the prevalent idea nowadays is that new music is always good, when in fact it's mostly the opposite. Then again, the result is artistes releasing DVD compilations such as this one. It contains one of the best videos of all time, "Bachelorette". I just can't separate the song from the video, together they create such an overwhelming feeling of deterioration, which along with its clever plot are extremely rare in modern art. Most certainly, this is a must in every art lover's collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Work of Art June 21 2003
By r p
Format:DVD
This is a definite MUST-HAVE for any Björk fan, hardcore or not. If you love her music, her personality, or just appreciate good art, this collection is for you. I bought the imported version because I couldn't wait for the U.S. release, but despite the steep price (probably triple the cost of the local one), I was not disappointed.
There are 21 breathtaking videos from Debut, Post, Homogenic, Vespertine, and three bonuses (two new songs, one from a movie soundtrack), with the three videos from Vespertine available in 5.1 audio format-a heightened experience, all encased in a gorgeous crystal clear case.
Human Behavior-a cute parody of sorts; giant teddy bear on the loose!
