Björk - Telegram mp3 album
Telegram is the first full-length and second overall remix album by Icelandic musician Björk. The album is a collection of remixes of several tracks from her album Post, which had all previously appeared as B-sides of the UK versions of the singles off Post, except the "Enjoy" remix which was previously unreleased. All of the songs on Post were remixed, excluding "The Modern Things" and "It's Oh So Quiet"
While Telegram provides some of the most challenging listening yet heard on a Björk album, it is essentially because the new arrangements are radical - in terms of electronic dance music, the actual music and remixes are far from radical. Still, Telegram works as an excellent introduction to techno for alternative pop fans unsure of where to begin exploring.
More along the lines of Debut, an album I've only recently come to realize as one of Bjork's most consistent works, Telegram is a product of its time and remains faithful in that aspect almost entirely - something I felt that Post lacked with its ambitions driving the product more. 3. 1y. musicmagpie55. 85. A reinterpretation of Bjork's second album that highlights the anxiety and sinister underbelly of Post.
A remix for me is like a duet between the person I’m working with and myself. So says Iceland’s mercurial pop visionary, Björk. And so it is on her new album Telegram. In bold brushstrokes, Björk reinvents 9 songs from her eclectic Post album, and offers up a brand new track with noted British percussionist Evelyn Glennie. In the following interview, the artist talks about the making of Telegram.

Björk had intended to produce the album alone, but she abandoned the idea and sought out a group of collaborators including Dravs, Howie B, Guy Sigsworth. Howie B had worked with Björk previously on Debut and Post, the American hip hop group Wu-Tang Clan almost contributed to the production of Homogenic, but were unable due to their production on the album Wu-Tang Forever, which had taken longer than planned.

As with most Bjork extras, this compilation of remixed and alternate mid-career tunes is a bit uneven, even if the charmers outweigh the duds. The Brodsky Quartet's imaginative accompaniment to "Hyperballad" is a refreshing take on the tune, and percussionist Evelyn Glennie bangs an almglocken (a set of resonate, pitched cowbells) to make a colorful b-side out of the dirty-talking "My Spine.
