Homogenic could not be the greatest electronic or pop album of all time, but by God, it certainly hasn’t but fought for the contention title. Her epic electro-love ballad dedicated to her Icelandic home on “Joga”; the minimal masterpiece “Unravel”; the musically and lyrically chaotic “Pluto” (“I just have to explode this body off of me”); one of Björk’s most soaring vocal performances ever in the emotionally reassuring “All ... read more
