2. Joga(String & Vocal Mix)-This is basically an orchestral version of the album track. very nice.
3. Joga(Buzz Water Mix)-a toned down mix. Mostly vocals and some soothing keyboard and distant beats (which you can barely hear, sounds like when someone is wearing headphones and you can barely hear the beat of the song they're listening to). Further into the song, they put in a kind of annoying noise.
4. All Is Full Of Love(Choice Mix)-This is the album version without the harpsichord. I bet the majority of people couldn't tell the difference though.
5. Joga(Album Version)
6. Sod Off-WONDERFUL non-album track with very powerful strings. This is Bjork putting her foot down.
7. Immature (Bjork's Version)-a very stripped down version of the album track except with newly recorded vocals. Think acapella with piano. I actually like this version a lot.
8. So Broken-another fantastic b-side. this one features acoustic guitars. nice.
9. Joga(Alec Empire Mix)/10. Joga(Alec Empire Hardcore Mix/11. Joga(Alec Empire Hardcore Mix-all 3 of these sounded the same to me. It's basically just NOISE with scattered vocals. Ruines the song, totally useless.
So aside from the last 3 tracks and the unecessary "all is full of love" version, this CD is worth getting, mostly for the B-sides
I give this CD four stars because even though this is a gorgeous song and there are some essential bjork bits on this disc, the first three mixes of Joga are EASY "mixes", not remixes. What you hear is the original song minus some of the percussion on this one, some more instrumentation subtracted on that other one .... The first three mixes are semi-naked versions of the song. Very easy and cheap to throw together to make a few extra bucks. You'd THINK you were getting a truly "DIFFERENT" treatment of the song rather than a gentle, bony one. The same is true for the All is Full of Love Choice Mix - subtract any sort of beat/percussive electronics from the original and there's your song. They are all beautiful and good but obviously so easy to produce that really they're just money-makers. This is not like the REmixing of old. Immature - if I remember correctly - is another stripped away version here...
Non-album tracks: Sod off is about heartbreak and release (a sad, angry "leave me alone!" song). So Broken with its flamenco guitar features Bjork singing and wailing and crying over lost love. Half of it is emotional babbling rather than lyrics because of the dejected emotion she's focused on conveying. Appropriate for a good heartfelt purge. It is only for those who really love Bjork though.Read more ›
The howie b. remixes are great, the buzzwater remix is beauteous, the string and vocal mix is gloriously stripped down to its orchestral roots...and the original is the strikingly beautiful song we know and love...and the Alec Empire remixes are...Noisily energetic and gorgeous:>
The Choice mix of all is full of love, however, is unnecessary and without much discernable difference from the orignal at all. But besides all that, the extra songs, such as Björk's groovy, semi a-capella version of immature, the dramatic Sod Off, and the heartwrenching and beautiful So Broken, really aid in taking one on a glorious musical journey.
This is a great release no Björk fan should be without.

This CD is a must for two reasons: 1) So Broken: One of Bjork's all-time greatest B-sides (and true fans will know what an honor that title is), with beautiful, soaring flamenco... Read morePublished on Aug. 26 2001 by Jack Baur
This song is pure poetry-evocative of so many emotions. Highly recommend you see the video representation of this song as well. My favorite mix is the Buzz Water mix.Published on May 12 2001 by Anthony Dickerson
