I want to say, that this isn't the most professional review, like many others but this is a real opinion on one of the most unique and creative artist we can the priviledge of listening to today.

Bjork Voltaic is an excellent buy for any who want to hear a new feel for old songs that you love by Bjork and to get the experience of what her latest tour was like. I was at the concert and it was rocking. I had never heard her songs produced in that way before, but the energy was great. Her show felt more involved that the meditative Vespertine concerts. The colors bring out life in the songs and the music is great. "Wanderlust" becomes an even better favorite because of the the band. "Hunter" live becomes and instant classic. If you like Bjork and especially her Volta cd, you will not be disappointed.

In 2007 Bjork released the return-to-form "Volta" album, and then took to the road for a massive tour in support of the new album. Now comes this CD/DVD combo from the 2007 tour.

The CD "Songs From the Volta Tour" (11 tracks; 47 min.) is not necessarily the live CD that you might expect. This is in fact a recording of the in-studio rehearsal in London that Bjork and her band played shortly before headlining the 2007 Glaxtonbury music festival. So yes, it's live but there is no audience, and it really feels more like a studio album that happens to have been taped in one take. Not that this is a complaint. Ths quality of the songs is fabulous. The setlist is what one can expect: a heavy dose of "Volta" songs, with the occasional old nugget thrown in such as "Army of Me', which will for me always remain Bjork's signature song.

The DVD "The Volta Tour" (21 tracks; 92 min.) first brings the 16 song performance from L'Olympia in Paris, and it is a vusual and musical extravaganza that truly gives you the Bjork concert experience. To start the show, the 10 piece musical brass band comes stepping onto the stage, and then Bjork comes on and starts with a blazing "Earth Intrudres", and off we go. The camera work is excellent, as is the sound, in particular is you have the proper home-theater set up (which I happen to have). Other highlights include "Army of Me" (which brings the entire venue jumping up and down), but also "Hyperballad", "Wanderlust" and the closer "Declare Independence". Also on this DVD is a (too short) 5 song performance taped in some church in Reykjavik in front of a small audience (not more than a few hundred, at most), which brings a mix of Volta and Medulla songs.

Björk has done it again with this release. Voltaic CD/DVD features two astonishing live performances in both Paris, France and Reykjavik, Iceland. Awesome setlist, full of raw energy and vitality, this is one of her top live DVDs. The studio CD is also great, though I wish it were longer.
Many songs on her album Volta really come alive when they are performed and take on the shape of a whole new animal, so if you were unsure of Volta, it is definitely worth revisiting live versions of the songs on Voltaic.

If you have the extra cash to spare, the 2 CD / 2 DVD version of Voltaic is the way to go, but this is a great middle ground. Definitely do not miss out on the DVD of the live performances, it's truly a visual feast.
Some reviewers complained about the packaging, but I happen to really like it and quite enjoy the photography it consists.

This is a must have for all Björk fans and especially those who are just getting into her discography. Voltaic would be a great place to start, highly recommended.

I've never had the opportunity to see a Bjork concert in person, and this album in particular shows the magnificent music she compose. It's admirable the way she combine traditional music, classic instruments with basic melodies, and the most modern tools in more complex music.
