5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful February 21, 2013

I heard the song that Bjork did on this album at the Elles:Pompideau exhibit at the Seattle Museum of Art show this year. The song accompanied a slide show of Nan Goldin photographs and was my favorite piece in the exhibit. The rest of the album is fantastic, a must for fans of modern classical music.

I enjoyed it very much. I loaned it to a friend who is notorious for never returning anything so I will be ordering another copy.
