    Björk is the latest artist to be chosen for NPR's 50 Great Voices, the weekly series featuring "awe-inspiring voices from around the world and across time." In the segment, titled "Björk: A Celestial Voice," host Guy Raz says of that voice: "There is something celestial about it, as if it comes from another world, a fantastic and colorful and utopian world." The New Yorker's Alex Ross tells NPR: "I cannot think of another voice like it in pop music, in classical music."

    Björk's Voltaic captures the Icelandic performer's unforgettable Volta tour on an array of formats, including a deluxe version with all the music on vinyl. In Seattle Weekly's "Reverb" music blog, Nirvana's Krist Novoselic says: "Voltaic is some good vinyl ... If you love Björk, you probably own this. If you like Björk, I say get this work because it's a nice document of the artist's music up to Volta but with a fresh twist."

Nashville Scene points to its visual aspect, describing her concerts as "absolutely spellbinding marriages of ethereal sound and astonishing vision," and explaining, "As always, the singer's voice is simply unparalleled in its celestial beauty, her primal stage presence is captivating, the beats are club-stomping, and the visual spectacle of the show is stunning." All About Jazz sees her  "here she's near the top of her game."
