A compilation album by the Icelandic musician and singer, originally released in November 2002. Although not all of Björk's singles are included on this collection, all of the songs on 'Greatest Hits' were released as singles. The tracks were selected by fans through a survey on Björk's website. 'Greatest Hits' presents the songs in descending order of most-popular votes, with the exception of 'It's In Our Hands' which was a new song and appears at the end of the compilation.


Björk isn’t an easy artist for a compilation. But I think Greatest Hits is something very satisfactory, therefore an easily recommendable selection. General albums of Björk require some kind of devotedness to get into. Both Debut and Post were inspiring musical journeys, but Homogenic was the album that deserved to be one of the most important records of the 1990s, in my opinion. Most of the material is selected from these three albums, then two songs from Vespertine, finally the brilliant ‘Play Dead’ (the song that made me a Björk fan for a while), which was a soundtrack, and a new song ‘It’s in Our Hands’, which is very much in the vein of the songs included from ‘Verspertine’.

Hard to select the favourites, as there no weak tracks here. The opening ‘All Is Full of Love’ was the closing track on Homogenic, however surprisingly works well as an opening piece in the more upbeat single version. Further standouts are ‘Jóga’, ‘Bachelorette’, ‘Pagan Poetry’, ‘Venus as a Boy’ and ‘Play Dead’. Some may miss ‘It’s Oh So Quiet’ from Post, which may be right, but maybe something from Selmasongs would have been also worth to add.

Excellent set overall, strongly recommended.
