* TroubledProduction: The famous video for "All is Full of Love", [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QReuUcQ_c9U as recounted here]], was this for director Chris Cunningham. Because of all the complicated effects required in post-production, the initial footage was essentially still shots of the set and props, and Björk in a blue costume and white facepaint, with Cunningham having a full-blown panic attack over how cheap and ramshackle it looked. Björk trusted him enough that she first saw the video when it was finished, an act of faith that ultimately paid off as it's widely regarded as one of her best.

The Massey produced songs would eventually appear in ''Post'', such as "Army of Me" and "The Modern Things".
** "My Spine" was originally recorded for ''Post'' before it appeared as a B-side for "It's Oh So Quiet".
** ''Post'' originally had a different cover art.

** She originally envisioned ''Vespertine'' as an album called ''Domestika'', which would feature intimate-sounding music, sounds of household objects, and lyrics that "celebrated the banalities of daily life" such as searching one's house for a lost set of keys. The overall feel of the music and the idea of using household objects remained, but the lyrics started revolving around love and sex. "Domestica", a BSide to the "Pagan Poetry" single, is a glimpse at the original idea for the album, as it's the aforementioned song about missing keys.
