CRITIC REVIEWS

AllMusic

While it might not represent every side of Björk's music, Homogenic displays some of her most impressive heights.

Tiny Mix Tapes

The fact is, Björk has managed to create something so refreshingly unique that trying to categorize and label the music is rather dubious. It is easier to see Homogenic as the backbone for the future of music.

Slant Magazine
If not the greatest electronic album of all time, it's certainly the greatest of its decade.
99
Pitchfork

She understands that humans have evolved since rock music's conception over fifty years ago. The extremely dark and lush soundscape of Homogenic is her way of showing people how much more we're capable of.

Spin
Amid all the premillenial tension, she had this great idea: Why not something new?
80
Rolling Stone

With Homogenic, Björk proves that good art, like good love, relies as much on the interplay of opposites as it does on fusion.

Bjork has done an album that she will never be able to top incredible vocals and electronic mix that evolved into one of the best electronic albums of all time but also one of the best solo-song writer albums of all time.

No faults here aside from Pluto being a little obnoxious. Personally, my favorite album. It's incredibly ahead of its time.

Really awesome album, very emotional performances and lyrics from bjork on this thing definitely hit me very hard. Whilst this thing is super powerful, the lovely the production can't be overlooked either, it's wonderfully diverse and for sure a strong aspect to this album. I just think a few songs feel a little unfulfilling (Unravel, 5 Years) but besides that, this album is really great, definitely recommended.
