Voltaic (2009)

EW's GRADE
B+

Details Release Date: Jun 30, 2009; Lead Performance: Bjork; Genre: Indie Rock

This CD/DVD set of tour extras might make you feel like your brain's doing sit-ups. There's the live footage from Paris, where Björk conducts vocal
 Pilates with a brass band dressed like Apache circus clowns. And there are 
videos on Voltaic like ''Wanderlust,'' a 3-D extravaganza starring prehistoric beasts. 
But then, with music this imaginative, it's easy to get lost in Björk's Oz. A windchimey version of ''Pagan Poetry'' from London is positively shiver-inducing. Also magical: footage of the Reactable, a glowing electronic instrument that looks like it's powered by the Blue Man Group's souls. B+
