Bjork At Governors Ball, Saturday, June 6th, 2015, Review

IMG_2210Bjork was great at Governors Ball yesterday, she looked fantastic, she sounded great, the songs were much louder and more powerful (and more varied) from the March New York concerts in support of Vulnicura and on top of that we got “Army Of Me” and a Karaoke conclusion with “Hyperballad”.

The sound veered close to industrial house at times and the videos were very good, especially “Stonemilker” and Bjork sounded older, less childlike, more powerful and certain and every song hit home. It was a very good concert but not great.

What was missing was the sustained artistic vision of the Vulnicura concerts,  the quiet devastated beauty of those concerts weren’t attempted and weren’t achieved. For all the set, with a full orchestra no less, power, the audience (but not me I might add) was distracted, and she couldn’t quite pull it off and so between the two, for all its sustained vision, it felt like a disjointed vision, a vision in transition.

It is difficult to say anything about a show which ends with “Hyperballad” but a show that deconstructs “Army Of One” is easier and more, it is telling the best songs were Vulnicura songs, the two songs that opened the album opened the 7om 75 minute set and the were the most stunning of them all.

It is Bjork and any complaint, particularly when you are very close to the stage, are mooted at best and still, it wasn’t her greatest moment.

Grade: B+
