Bjork's Big Day Out in Australia

It's been a long time since she first blew crowds away at Big Day Out, Bjork returns for the 2008 edition.

The Icelandic starlet has been coined just about everything under the sun, but you already know that the ever-changing songstress is someone you never take for granted.

After the release of her mega-killer album Debut in '93, Bjork spent the following years breaking moulds, creating an intelligent form of music that not only appealed to the die-hard fans, but also the mainstream (through songs such as 'It's Oh So Quiet' and 'Hyperballad'.

With her latest record Volta, the temperament remains the same: out there, wild, experimental music that only grows on you with each listen (and it features supremo producer Timbaland here and there). It'd be rude not to get this album and, if you're one of those die-hards that think her old stuff is better than her new stuff, then don't go to the show - you'll just ruin it for the rest of us.

Sure, there's stuff in the PR that talks about past shows that have incorporated some cool things, but we're not going to fuck it up for anyone - enjoy it for what it is.

In Bjork's own words to the New York Times, "I believe in that place where you plug into the zeitgeist, the collective consciousness...It's very folk. Soulful. Not materialistic.

"I believe in being a fighter for that soulful place."

This is gonna be large.
