Editorial Reviews

Volumen is an official DVD/home video released by Björk on October 14, 1999. The DVD includes all of Björk's videos up until "Hunter". The release was superseded by the DVD Greatest Hits - Volumen 1993-2003 which includes all the videos from "Human Behaviour" to "Nature Is Ancient", seven more videos than this release includes. A separate DVD released in 2002, Volumen Plus, is available for those who purchased this original release and who want the additional seven videos. It has been certified Gold in the USA

Customer Reviews

HYPERBALLAD - This song and video are my favorite from Bjork.
Porfie
Each and every video on this collection proves that Bjork is one of the only truly innovative artists in music today.
Matt.
"All Is Full of Love": Another beautiful song that portrays Bjork as a robot.

If you know anything about music you will know how influential Bjork is to the industry. She creates majestic music, quirky lyrics, amazing movies and magic music videos. Her music accompanies her videos so well. She uses an amazing array of themes in her videos but the main one would have to be nature.

She ropes in the most amazing names in directing to create videos that are out of this world, and not without controversy either. Some of her videos have been banned in the US because of the nudity content. However this just adds to the weirdness of Bjork.

From "Debut" there is "Human Bahaviour", "Venus As A Boy", "Play Dead", "Big Time Sensuality" and "Violently Happy".

From "Post" comes "Army Of Me", "Isobel", "It's Oh So Quiet", "Hyper-ballad", "Possibly Maybe" and "I Miss You".

From Homogenic surfaces "Joga", "Bachelorette", "Hunter", "Alarm Call", "All Is Full Of Love".

From "Vespertine" are the controversial "Hidden Place", "Pagan Poetry", "Cocoon".

There are also two new videos, "It's In Our Hands" and "Nature Is Ancient".

An added bonus about this collection is the fact that all the videos are in chronological order which makes it that more special and a great synopsis of her career.

The one thing that disappoints me though is the fact that she includes no videos from "Selmasongs" and no bonus features however the fact that this dvd is so thorough those factors really don't detract at all.

Overall, "Volumen" is a great way to get into Bjork's music but most of all her videos which are simply my favourite videos that have ever been made. This dvd is worth every penny.

I shouldn't even have to explain how much I adore Bjork by now, because if you've read any of my past reviews on her records then you'll know perfectly well just how much I think of her. I won't bore you by heaping praise on her, but I might occasionally slip into the worship-phase I usually fall into when talking about her in this review. Oh well. My current art project is based on Bjork herself. I am exploring the way she adopts nature into her music and music videos, and how this is contrasted with the high-tech sound of her music (which can be heard on albums such as "Homogenic" and "Vespertine.") Therefore, I thought it would be wise to invest in Bjork's "Greatest Hits: Volumen 1993 - 2003" DVD. I already knew that this stunning video featured an amazing 21 music videos spanning 10 incredible years in the music industry, and thought it would be a brilliant source of study for my project.

The first video in this collection is the stunning "Human Behaviour." This was Bjork's first video as a solo artist from 1993, and it sure makes an impact. The song is a look at humans from an animal's point of view. Bjork is singing the lyrics, which already suggests she is an animal - apart from the crowd and very much her own creation. Directed by Michael Gondry, we see Bjork in the woods with a giant teddy bear searching for food. The bear is also being hunted by a hunter in the woods. The bear chases after Bjork as well, but she outwits him. The woods are used as a metaphor for the human psyche; Bjork as the animal is lost in the woods, which represent the complex and dark characters of a human being. In the video to "Venus As A Boy," Bjork carefully fondles an egg while explicitly singing about copulation.

Bjork rules. All her videos are incredible. This is a great collection of all of Bjork's videos (except Alarm Call and All Is Full Of Love - both exceptionally brilliant videos that i really wish were included) but whatever, the remaining videos are so original and innovative you know that Bjork has been at it again... my personal favorites were 1. "Venus as a Boy" because who else could make eggs so sensual, and the song is amazing 2. "Hyperballad" because it goes so well with that song (my favorite of Bjork's) and 3. I Miss You because the creator of Ren and Stimpy animated it (so you know you can't miss that)! Definitely recomennded for Bjork fans, or even for anybody in film school who wants to brush up on how to make an insightful, creative video. Oh I almost forgot, "It's Oh So Quiet!" amazing, just incredible! Bjork can do anything, let's elect her president...

On this tape you can find more than just some nice music vids- it's a world of it's own. Enjoy the best works of M. Gondry, S. Sednaoui, and other creative directors. Every vid is unique and original, so you find "pure" Bjork in "Hunter", a "Comic-Bjork" in "I miss You", a surrealistic Bjork in "Human Behavior", "Army of me", a self-destroying Bjork in "Hyperballad" and in the most beautiful and heartbreaking song "Jogà" you can find a artificial "state of emergency" (and so the video looks like lovesong for her homecountry Iceland) It's the best music video I ever own and seen, but sadly I missed the newest two videos "Alarm Call" by Alexander Mcqueen and "All is full of love" by Chris Cunningham (Thousand times better than "Frozen" by Madonna.)
