Bjork : All is full of love

This is the first UK single release on DVD - which would be a meaningless marketing statistic in most cases but here, in the
light
of Chris Cunningham's miraculous self-snogging robo-Bjork video, it becomes yet another landmark in the Icelandic siren's consistently progressive pop agenda.


The tune is no mere soundtrack either but a magnificent, sultry, pneumatic trip-soul ballad which gently blooms into a magical
garden
of fluttering harps and shivering strings. It's also the closest Bjork has come to replicating the sensual majesty of her early hit 'Play Dead'. All she needs now is for some tabloid moralist to call for the video to be banned and a chart-topping smash awaits. Fingers crossed.
