14 outstanding videos by one outstanding artists, 10 February 2001
Author: sharky_321 from Bogotá, Colombia

As I watched MTV the past months I've noticed that you can classify 90% of the videos into 3 categories: Dance coreographies, "funny" videos (the silly funny type) and your typical slow motion, dark background with the band singing and....well...you know what I mean. In fact, sometimes it seems as the only really creative videos that have been released in the past few years have been the clips for Radiohead's Kid A and the "test specimen" and those aren't even videos!!!

Fortunately there are still very few bands and singers that know that the creative factor in the video is just as important as that of the song. And such is the case of Björk. Anyone that has ever heard her music knows that it's unique and unlike anything in the market and only unique videos would suit such music. Volumen collects 14 videos from her first 3 albums and every video is unique and wonderful. It kicks off with the well known video of "Human behaviour" and also includes other great videos like "It's oh so quiet" and it's great change of speed accompanied by musical-type scenes, or perhaps videos such as "I miss you" which is directed by the same guy that made Ren & Stimpy with R&S type cartoons. Not to mention the beautiful video "Joga" which isn't as long as the original song but is nevertheless outstanding. And that's just to name a few videos of this great collection. It's a shame though that it doesn't include the video of "All is full of love" from Homogenic which I regard as one of the best ever made, but Volumen is still worth buying......particularly if you're a Björk fan.
