Re: "Hyperballade" from yesterdays Polar Music Prize.
Anyway you slice it, this song is incredible.
The 11th greatest of all time.
Not a bad job by Robyn. She clearly doesn't have Bjork's vocal power (who does?), and I thought the first half of her performance kind of laid there. She did a better job when the accompaniment went into club mode.
Bjork's expression was inscrutable throughout. I couldn't tell what she was thinking.
Any fans of this song should hear Bjork's remix with only accompaniment by the Brodsky String Quartet, which was on her Telegram album of remixes.
