Atlas Sound On “Headphones”
“What has always interested me in Björk’s music is her ability to change her identity with each album. She always seems to present a new concept and audio-visual presence. My favorite record of hers is Vespertine. I can’t help but feel nostalgic every time I hear it. If I had to pick a favorite song it would be ’Undo.’ At the risk of sounding trite and overly-sentimental (me?!? trite?!? AND overly sentimental?!?!?) that song makes me cry or at least want to cry. Around the time Vespertine came out, my sister gave birth to twins several months premature, one of the twins – a daughter – lived only a day. It was a very dark time for my family. I listened to that song over and over on an endless loop. I’ve never listened to music expecting a message or wisdom, but that particular song meant a lot to me and still does. I always wanted to play it for my sister but was afraid she wouldn’t quite get it. Björk is an artist I love to admire and follow.”

    One of my favourite of Bjork’s songs, and a truly amazing rendition. This version has not lost the spark even a little, but equally unique.
