CRITIC REVIEWS

AllMusic

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

Pitchfork

Homogenic embraced all of Björk’s most provocative contradictions. The main theme is the wish to rush headlong into a life lived to the fullest—an unbridled yearning for the sublime.

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.

bjork comes up with one of the best electronic albums of all time. the mix of electronic production with strings and other instruments was an incredible fusion, creating one of the most memorable albums ever. bjorks lyrics are very entertaining and real, they vary in tone, so it isnt the same whine that she often has, she has some deeper cuts on this LP.
fav tracks: joga, 5 years, alarm call, bachelorette,

I mean, what can I say about this? This one of the most enjoyment album experiences you can get and it's certainly a unique one.

You can definitely hear the sonic influences: trip-hop, art pop, classical icelandic music, industrial, but she manages to not only perfectly blend these elements, but expand on them.
