Bjork – Volta / 2007

After years of fearlessness, Volta almost seems a step back to virgin ears. Like Squarepusher’sHello Everything, the album first registers as sort of a streamlined, original Greatest Hits. Many songs recall past landmarks without the adrenaline buzz of an artist out on a dangerous limb. It almost seems as if stock has been taken of past developments and been repackaged into a more judicious whole. There are no eargasms along the lines of Hyperballad, Bachelorette, or 5 Years, but the whole thing is agreeable.
