3 stars This album consist of tracks from the soundtrack to the movie 'SelmaSongs', and as such, hold some nice things such as orchestra on most of the songs, conducted and arranged by Vincent Mendoza who made a terrific work. Bjork contributes her own ideas to the fine arrangements as well. On the other hand there are some great electronic noises, which sound more professional than on other Bjork works. All these different sounds combined perfectly together. From the songs point of view, the unpreventable shmaltzy love duet is represented by Bjork and Thom Yorke at the male role, at 'I've seen it all'. Nice song and duet nevertheless. Other song example would be the close track 'New World' that holds beautiful melody taken from the opening track, accompanied by orchestra and electronic beats and percussion. and '107 Steps' with some steps count that dramatically developed to the climax. A good album, in this site I rate it as a 3 stars album.
