Live Box (2003)

EW's GRADE
A-

Details Release Date: Aug 12, 2003; Lead Performance: Björk

Listening to a live Bjork CD is akin to watching CinemaScope films on a 13-inch Zenith: Too many of the jarring visuals are lost. What's remarkable about this stunning package, which features concert versions of her four studio albums, is how much Bjork's dusky interior universe remains intact. The intricate electronic arrangements retain their jewelbox luster; the dynamic range and delicacy are present and accounted for. The five-track DVD extra, however, is best viewed on a big-screen plasma TV. With headphones.
