    A really great offering it mixes Bjork's classics with her new material.

    Voltaic excludes some of the amazing performances from the visually dazzling Volta Tour like "Who Is It?", "Hyperballad" and "Pluto", but otherwise offers a harmonic but somewhat lifeless delivery of songs.

    Turmoil! Carnage! Tracks like 'Earth Intruders' and 'Innocence' work much better as live numbers. The in the meantime classic combination of Hyperballad/Freak Pluto Declare Independence is as powerhouse on the DVD as it is in real life.

  1. With great audio and visuals, this version of Voltaic should please all but the most completist Bjork fans.
  2. This CD/DVD set of tour extras might make you feel like your brain's doing sit-ups.
  3. This second-hand facelessness runs throughout Volta, which still reads oddly rote and cold with this addendum. Even with its hulking abundance, Voltaïc is flesh without bone.
