Yeah, this is freaking great. I imagine this is what it would sound like if you played Cocteau Twins and Hum simultaneously.

In case anyone is wondering, Allen Epley is the singer/guitarist of the amazing bands Shiner and The Life And Times. If you haven't heard them you should remedy that immediately.

Ok, so I saw this post earlier today at work and couldn't wait to get home and make my own favorite list because it was very different than this one. After hours of listening to their whole catalog since I got home (which was fun), I finally have a list. But as a disclaimer, I must say that most of these could be interchangeable on any given day, but as a whole though you will notice that my favorite album is easily LP2 which is almost everyone's least favorite. 1. Iscarabaid 2. Red Elephant 3. 48 4. 5/4 5. J'nuh 6. Friday 7. How it feels to be something on 8. Killed by an angel 9. Pillars 10. Faces in disguise

I've always liked the other side of Conor than what most everyone else likes, Digital Ash is my favorite album. My top faves are: I Believe In Symmetry, Easy/Lucky/Free, Take It Easy (Love Nothing), Method Acting and From A Balance Beam. I also love Desaparecidos, so there.

Very old school Bjork fan here, from the first time I heard COLD SWEAT by the Sugarcubes I was hooked on her. I'm glad most of the comments are in agreement with me that Vespertine deserves more love. It's definitely a grower, but when it finally clicks it's heavenly. for quite a while I thought nothing she could do after Homogenic could compare. My favorite album by a mile. UNDO actually makes me cry with joy sometimes.

Fat Girl sounds a lot like The Smiths and I wouldn't believe Fragile Friend was Radiohead at all if it weren't for the picture of saxophones right above it because it doesn't sound like Thom at all.

Parts of "I found this star on the ground" sound like something off "Dots and Loops" by Stereolab, especially the jazzy drumming.

I do agree with everything Orbital said EXCEPT that this new album sounds amazing to me so far. For me these 3 songs are a return to the Vesperine era which is my favorite album by her, it's very mellow with laid back beats and textures.

August 8, 2011 on Björk – “Virus”
One of my favorite bands covering one of my favorite bands. They did a much better job with Bjork's "All is full of love", the poppy energy is missing from this one.

Silly people. When will they learn that it's not possible to cover Bjork and not sound like an amateur.

Britta was so much better singing for The Belltower, her stuff with Dean Wareham is sooooo boring.
