and there are even some audio surprises and new tracks (for instance the classic "the Telephone Call" has been extended and split into two tracks) This is wrong, unfortunately. The longer album version of "Telephone Call" has been replaced by the 7" version and its b-side "House Phone". The rest ho...

I've bought the German version of The Catalogue (the CD box set, there will be no vinyl box). Very nice item, there is a booklet in 12" format for each album. Especially the older CDs sound considerably better than the original releases. Computer World sounds much clearer, and a few errors have been...

The tracklisting will be quite similar to the Best Of CD.
But I'd include "Pump Yer Fist" and the "Two Tribes" remix.

US mixes were usually made to push a record into the US Dance Charts, which at that time meant selling a lot of records. A high chart position in the Dance Chart also pushed sales of the album. Anyway I doubt that the US mixes were done without approval by ZTT. First of all, the remixers need the mu...

Volta is a wonderful album.
I especially love "The Dull flame of Desire" - awesome.

In total I consider Volta as Bjorks third best album after Vespertine and Homogenic.
Which makes it easily album of the year so far.

Rave Strikes Back !!!

I have just found a German website that is dedicated to the resurrection of Rave! Since some time it has become a no-no to use this word, at least in Germany. The creators of the site want to get back the feeling of that time and want people to be proud again of being a Raver or going to Raves. A lo...

Usually it's this kind of 80's pop music that helps. I have even compiled myself a full CD of those: 1 Win - Super Popoid Groove 03:52 2 Red Box - Lean On Me 04:24 3 Strawberry Switchblade - Since Yesterday 02:56 4 Terry Blair & Anouchka - Ultra Modern Nursery Rhyme 04:05 5 Frazier Chorus - Typical ...

I've received my copy from Amazon Germany some days ago. It was the last one in stock... phew. For me it took a few times of listening to get really familiar with it. Most of the tracks are not straightforward, they have a kind of jazzy and laid-back atmosphere. But the more I listen to them, the mo...

I've seen a short feature about the reunion gig on German TV.
Seems that the band as well as the crowd hat a lot of fun.

In the meantime Björk is working on her new album.
Producers are rumoured to be Mark Bell and, ahem, Timbaland.
