AllMusic Review by

Big Time Sensuality was the final single released from Björk's first solo album, Debut. The song was issued as a U.S. maxi-single with the LP version, two non-album tracks, a remix of "Come to Me," and the famous "Fluke Minimix" of "Big Time Sensuality." The album version of "Big Time Sensuality" is a poppy, bouncy dance cut, but the remix is a fantastic, dizzying, techno-fied take on the song that wound up becoming the version featured in the song's video, although the video version was longer (the version here is an edit). The first bonus track, "Sidasta Eg," is a lovely, melancholy song sung in Icelandic, with Björk accompanied mostly by a jangly guitar. "Gloria" is a sparse, ghostly, flute-only instrumental track. The slow-burning remix of "Come to Me" is creepy, icy, dark, and ripe with Eastern-tinged influences. The bonus tracks are great for collectors, but the real star here is the remix of "Big Time Sensuality," which was one of 1993's biggest dance hits, and, although it didn't score too high on the U.S. Top 100, remains one of Björk's biggest and most accessible singles.
