We gave it a C-

On Selmasongs, Björk’s soundtrack EP from her new film, ”Dancer in the Dark,” the melding of drum and bass rhythms and panoramic classical orchestrations is as sonically impressive as it was on 1997’s ”Homogenic.” But something here brings out the most precious and irritating aspects of Björk’s elfin voice.

”I’ve Seen It All,” a duet with Radiohead’s Thom Yorke, has the grace of a new millennium Astaire and Rogers. Yet Selmasongs is mostly show tunes on Ecstasy, and you keep praying for a police raid.
