Vinyl Therapy: Bjork "Voltaic" Limited Edition Box Set (2009)

Having seen one of the NYC shows on this tour with my pals Billy and Kelly, I can tell you that the contents of this package fully capture the energy of Bjork, her musicians and the very specific, completely unparalleled universe of live music theatre they create.  Whether or not you "buy her brand" in terms of performance dynamics, there is no denying Bjork's ability to engage both the ardent admirer and the casual observer with her antics.  There is also no denying her ability to innovate when looking for ways to present her recorded work... In other words, THIS is how a live album package is done: 2 LPs, 2 DVDs, 2 CDs and a very unique package layout for the listener/viewer to interact with.
