18 April 2005 | by (Bulgaria) – See all my reviews

Bjork is not good musician. She is not a great singer. Actually she is a genius. One of the most popular non commercial artists. I cannot recall a song or video of her , no matter how old they are , that sound or look old-fashioned. She admits that the visual art of her is as important as the music of it's own:

"The reason I do photographs is to help people understand my music, so it's very important that I am the same, emotionally, in the photographs as in the music. Most people's eyes are much better developed than their ears. If they see a certain emotion in the photograph, then they'll understand the music."

Pagan Poetry is the second video from her magnificent Vespertine album. Of course it was censored by most of the music channels. Her nipples and pierced body are obvious. In fact a great number of her videos were cut before broadcasting on TV. Unfortunitely that is a kind of mutilation.

The plot of the video is about a bride's wedding preparation. The Visual effects are stunning. All the darkness, combining a digital camera and professional one , computer animation... All in few stylish minutes. Nick Knight is great as usual.

In the beginning of the video you can notice a hidden, masked porno shots. The rumours has it that Bjork is taking a part in them by his own. It would not surprise me at all. Somehow MTV, MCM ... haven't noticed that- all for good though. :) /they censored even All Is Full Of Love video by Chris Cunningham!!!/

Bjork gave all she could in this video. She appears a few times in it , showing a professional acting. The moods she represents in the video are amazing and deeply touching. No surprise she made a brilliant work at "Danser In The Dark".

At the end , I think this is the darkest and most depressive Bjork's video by now and it deserves to be noticed.
