It’s obviously no secret that I’m a huge admirer of Björk. Her voice sends chills to different parts of my being. Her pixie-like performance style is not only interesting, but something of a wonder in the world of so-called pop performers. She’s not at all delicate, not at all what most would consider “normal.” She’s a blazing piece of music flash that’s unbelievably brilliant and unwaveringly sublime.
Her stint on MTV Unplugged in the early 90s showcases her carefree embracing of her performance space, no matter how small or large. The genuine sparkle and fire of her personality meshes very well with the intimacy of her audience. She allows every member the chance to peek into her world, giving everyone a glimpse at the purity in her delivery. Truly a gift to anyone who remembers the genius and fearlessness of MTV in the 90s.
