Well, it's not like I hid it when it came in the truck the week before. I actually found it about 10 minutes after the store opened. Since the store only got one copy, it was hard to find within the dozen or so boxes... and the opening manager was late, so the media dept was a bit behind in putting out the new releases.

I actually knew about the release before the regular CD came out, so I was holding out for this release.

I pre-ordered it from Amazon, should receive it Saturday. Don't know why it's not listed at the top of the list when you search for Bjork, but isn't this it?

But here's the crappy part: it's more expensive than importing from amazon.co.uk! The US set costs $29.49 with free shipping; the UK set costs $22.95 (£11.57) with Air Mail shipping.

And the UK LE is apparently NTSC format and all-region according to this post at the Steve Hoffman forum: http://www.stevehoffman.tv/forums/sh...&postcount=171

just saw Bjork last night at the Gorge.

while i am a huge fan of her music & art, i must say this show was very boring. maybe better suited for a small theater, but sheesh the songs she chose were predominantly the slower, mellower type. don't get me wrong, she sounded GREAT and was as beautiful as ever...

late at night, at a festival of bands that rock... she put us all to sleep!

Saw Bjork night before last in Detroit and I'm still recovering. Fantastic show that breathed new life into the new songs from Volta and delivered most of the hits you'd expect. The stage was decorated in flags and she had her Icelandic brass band backing her up the entire show. In addition to lights and lasers, she had some pyrotechnics during Earth Intruders and early on shot a web of string out of her hand that covered the first three or four rows. Some unexpected highlights were Desired Constellation, I Miss You and Anchor Song. As usual, she ended with Declare Independence and it blew the roof off the place. One of the best shows I've seen in a long time. I am amazed that her voice sounds so strong live this far into her career.

Setlist:

1. Intro - Brennið Þið Vitar
2. Innocence
3. Hunter
4. Pagan Poetry
5. Immature
6. Hidden Place
7. Jóga
8. The Pleasure Is All Mine
9. Desired Constellation
10. Earth Intruders
11. Army Of Me
12. Five Years
13. I Miss You
14. Cover Me
15. Wanderlust
16. Hyperballad
17. Pluto

encore
18. Anchor Song
19. Declare Independence

Sounds incredible auto. I'm on a real "Bjork Binge" and I've been listening to Volta and Homogenic back and forth for the last few days and I would give anything to see her live.

Well, like an idiot, I forgot when the LA Bjork tickets went on sale, and now I'm buying them secondhand for about $125 a pop.
