Telegram is the first full-length and second overall remix album by Icelandic musician Björk. The album is a collection of remixes of several tracks from her album Post, which had all previously appeared as B-sides of the UK versions of the singles off Post, except the "Enjoy" remix which was previously unreleased. All of the songs on Post were remixed, excluding "The Modern Things" and "It's Oh So Quiet"
While Telegram provides some of the most challenging listening yet heard on a Björk album, it is essentially because the new arrangements are radical - in terms of electronic dance music, the actual music and remixes are far from radical. Still, Telegram works as an excellent introduction to techno for alternative pop fans unsure of where to begin exploring.
Björk Guðmundsdóttir (/bjɜːrk/; Icelandic: (listen); born 21 November 1965) is an Icelandic singer, songwriter, actress, record producer, and DJ. Over her four-decade career, she has developed an eclectic musical style that draws on a range of influences and genres spanning electronic, pop, experimental, classical, trip hop, IDM, and avant-garde music.
Björk released her first solo studio album, titled Debut, in 1993, under One Little Indian Records. A sleeper hit in United Kingdom, the record eventually hit the top three in the Official Charts Company and received platinum certifications from BPI, RIAA and ARIA. The album included the singer's debut single "Human Behaviour", which gained chart success on Billboard Alternative and Dance charts. The album was followed by a companion remix album, called Telegram (1996). Björk focused on combining electronic beats with string instruments with her third album Homogenic (1997), which sold 1 million copies around Europe.
More along the lines of Debut, an album I've only recently come to realize as one of Bjork's most consistent works, Telegram is a product of its time and remains faithful in that aspect almost entirely - something I felt that Post lacked with its ambitions driving the product more. 3. 1y. musicmagpie55. 85. A reinterpretation of Bjork's second album that highlights the anxiety and sinister underbelly of Post.

A remix for me is like a duet between the person I’m working with and myself. So says Iceland’s mercurial pop visionary, Björk. And so it is on her new album Telegram. In bold brushstrokes, Björk reinvents 9 songs from her eclectic Post album, and offers up a brand new track with noted British percussionist Evelyn Glennie.
