Big Time Sensuality
1993: Elektra 66242-2
The Fluke Minimix is the version used in Björks quirky/entertaining video for Big Time Sensuality (in which shes dancing around on a flatbed truck driving around what appears to be Manhattan Island). I too almost prefer the video mix to the original its a tough call, as theyre both quite good; the former has a slight edge over the latter in that its more dramatic and expansive, but the formers more immediate sound is slightly more attractive.
Ive never known what to make of the other three tracks on this single. Perhaps thats why Im not a bona fide Björk fan, raving about everything she does and records: some of her work just completely eludes me and leaves me blinking in surprise at being so unmoved by it. Sometimes I wish I were a full-on gonzo Björker, because then I would undoubtably host a fan website called If It Aint Björk, Dont Fixate, but alas it is not so.
