CRITIC REVIEWS

100
AllMusic

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

100
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.

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

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

this is one of the most beautiful and elegant albums ever!!

this is an album you must listen to and a great starter to the björk discography!

E se em 'Post' (1995), Björk definia base artística da sua carreira, em 'Homogenic' ela expande para além de toda compreensão possível, entregando o mais importante álbum de sua carreira e consequentemente da música eletrônica na sua mais primorosa versão.

'Homogenic' trouxe uma série de inovações, começando pela implementação, uso e fusão de elementos eletrônicos ao ... read more

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,
