  • Even if you're not mad about the tunes, the light show and interwoven footage of astral bodies, dancing microbes and pulsing starfish is alone worth the price of admission ...

  • Exactly what those links between music and nature are is not totally clear, but there's an entrancing harmony between what we see and hear.

  • A must for fans of the avant-garde pixie.

  • The galactic and microscopic visuals have a soothing warmth, tending toward shades of gold and dusty rose, while Björk's electronic-influenced backing oscillates between contained thuds and freer steel-drum-like patterns.

  • Onscreen, Bjork and her musicians simply can't hold us rapt through the many abstract, ponderous moments the way they could onstage.

  • Biophilia proves hugely ambitious and unfortunately unable to avoid falling apart somewhat without the complete story [of its creation].

Audience Reviews for Bjork: Biophilia Live


Biophilia is not one of my favorite Björk albums, far from it actually, but for the fans out there who love it more than I do this concert film will certainly prove to be a special experience, a psychedelic trip in which her music is interwoven so harmonically with beautiful images.
