Bjork is one of a kind and she has talent on many levels, including mixing and producing.

i agree post is her best but she has a jazz"gling glo"which is very good.her influences are from;brian eno and kraftwerk.eno's best to my taste is "another green world" and for kraftwerk i like "autobahn".eno is quite prolific and made many albums with robert fripp of king crimson and hes the producer of u2 on many albums.pat
I'm a fan of both Eno & Fripp. I grew up listening to a lot of King Crimson, Roxy Music, Bowie and the likes, although they were a bit before my time...I had some older friends that turned me on to some great artists. In those days these bands & musicians would collaberate creating some great sounding music. I aprreciated the creativity these artist conveyed being a musician myself. Although Vespertine is not a new release, it's new to me, and I find it to be fresh, lush & very creative.
I just received two DVD's of hers.Live From Shephards Bush and Live At the Royal Opera House.I believe the latter is Vespertine live.I watched/listened to the Shephards Bush one the other night and got blown away by her.That elfish comment is so accurate.She almost seems like she exists in another realm or world when she performs and sings.Yeah i have become a fan and that voice and her control of it as an instrument are mind blowing to me.She's a great artist in my opinion.Really looking forward to sitting down and enjoying the Opera House DVD soon now.
I know a guy in copenhagen that produced the music fortwo tracks off that lp... undo and coccoon i believe.. his name is thomas knak, but records under the name "opiate" and is in some interesting electronic bands called "future three" and "james bong".. but his opiate stuff is much better... similar to what is on vespertine
Vespertine is my fav Bjork as well, and not by a small margin. Although I would say every bjork album (except telegram) is awesome in its own way, y'all should check out Post, Selmasongs, and Drawing Restraint for sure if you haven't already. If you are a jazz fan you also need to give Gling Glo a listen, it is a killer set of tunes.
