Musical genius and innovator Bjork has always been at the fore-front of the music video art form, and Volumen is an excellent showcase of her groundbreaking videos. Bjork always chooses the most interesting people to work with, and her videos are no different. The most notable in this collection being Spike Jonze who directed her most famous video, "It's Oh So Quiet," which was reportedly the inspiration for Bjork's feature film "Dancer in the Dark". Spike Jonze is probably the best music video director of all time and "It's Oh So Quiet" ranks with his best. But every other video in "Volumen" is also fantastic. From the black and white kookines of "Big Time Sensuality" to the lush computer generated landscapes of "Joga" to the eerie "Hunter" where Bjork morphs into a bear...the inventiveness of Bjork's videos never stops. Any Bjork fan, even fans of film, should own this collection!
