    Cvalda is not more well-known than It’s Oh So Quiet, unfortunately.

    I love that movie and have seen it twice, but I don't know if I have it in me for a rewatch, even though I've last seen it probably 10 years ago. And I don't go recommending it to anyone. If it pops up in a conversation (and surprisingly it happens from time to time) I will always say that I think it's a brilliant movie, but I won't say "You must watch it.". The movie definitely has a lot of life and joy draining experience, even though I'm usually hardly moved by things.

    I do remember preferring the film versions of the songs to their Selmasongs counterparts for a variety of reasons. "I've Seen It All" has a more dynamic mix in the film than the more muted Thom Yorke duet, where its train-track sampling beat gets buried by the orchestra. But I do think the album is a worthy entry in Björk's orchestral cannon, rounded out by Homogenic, Vespertine and Vulnicura

    Dancer in the Dark is so terribly sad. I can’t watch it again.

    So glad to see you mention Selmasongs, it gets really overlooked because it's a soundtrack.

    Time to bring back this gem:

    Three Joni's in there

    Anyway, it's been a while since I listened to "Post", giving it a spin later.

    Can't say i don't agree but have they ever given a 10 to any album?

    Björk Announces Orchestral Tour

    Last year saw Björk debut her stunning “Cornucopia” show, and now she has another unique live experience in the works. The Icelandic experimental artist has announced a limited run “Björk Orchestral” tour set for this summer.

    Taking place throughout July, the European trek will see Björk performing classical acoustic arrangements “of works so far,” according to a tour poster. It launches on the 2nd in Moscow before heading on to Helsinki, Berlin, and a two-night stint in Paris. The tour technically warps at Cheshire, England’s Bluedot Festival, during which Björk perform with Manchester’s legendary Halle Symphony Orchestra.

    Tickets go on sale Friday, February 28th and will be available via Ticketmaster. You can also check here for tickets to all of Björk’s scheduled concerts.

    If you can’t make it across the Atlantic to check out the orchestral shows, you could always stop by New York City’s Sister City hotel to hear Björk’s Microsoft A.I.-assisted lobby score. Or for a taste of her stage grandeur, you can see what her costumer designer Edda Gudmundsdottir does with the upcoming “Scooby-Doo! And the Lost City of Gold” touring stage spectacular.

    Björk 2020 Tour Dates:
    07/02 – Moscow, RU @ Crocus Music Hall
    07/06 – Helsinki, FI @ Hartwall Arena
    07/09 – Berlin, DE @ Waldbühne Open Air
    07/17 – Paris, FR @ Siene Musicale
    07/20 – Paris, FR @ Siene Musicale
    07/26 – Cheshire, UK @ Bluedot Festival

    Same here. The first 3 or possibly 4 albums were probably her most accessible to the general population. 'Debut' still gives me goosebumps even when I listen to it all these years later. For a casual listener 'Debut', 'Post', 'Homogenic' and 'Vespertine' may be as far as they get. She's already becoming quite experimental by this stage. I do love the later albums very much for this reason, she's fusing all sorts of sounds and visuals, and continues to evolve. It's amazing to experience and quite a privilege as her work is often deeply personal.

    I'm not going to give a ranking as for me, comparing her albums is like comparing apples with oranges
