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

Tiny Mix Tapes

Very refreshing despite its age. This album is truly timeless. The overall sound is very atmospheric and more times than not provides a good handful of goosebumps. Björk achieves something out of the ordinary with this album. The feelings awakened by the this album are hard to describe.

One of my favorite tracks of all time is from this album, Unravel

Favorite tracks: "Unravel", "Joga", "All Is Full Of Love"
