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.

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

Entertainment Weekly

Homogenic may be Bjork’s most audacious move in a career filled with them.

NME

While her third solo album, 'Homogenic', is probably her most weird, it is also her best.

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

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

björk can express emotions very well, she can sound confident in the middle of Hunter, but then sound angry on songs like 5 years.

the production is very well made. and the strings!! ohh the strings are beautiful as fuck on songs such as Joga.

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

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 love the sonic landscapes this album travels through. The mix of these rich elegant strings with these glitchy disjointed techno beats is mouthwatering. Her vocals seem a lot more focused and serious on this album compared to her previous work although that doesn't affect her large dynamic vocal range in the slightest and her lyrics are just as emotionally colourful ambitious as the album as they help you visualise the album in great detail due to her unique way of describing emotions in ... read more
