Like a whale performing an aerial pirouette, Björk's debut album made a lot of waves when it was released. "Debut" brings together 12 electro-pop ultra-inspired songs, effective groove, rich and original arrangements.

I love Bjork, just about everything she do. Nevertheless, for me, her debut album is her best work. It is true that she has at least four other very important albums, even more than that. However, I personally feel the difference between her first album and the rest is that in this she didn't try too much to be "different", and then so many emotions came out of her, much more than in her other works - in which the excellent production sometimes outweighs the emotional part.

On ‘Debut’, musical genius Björk meldes around on some never-ending tracks that never progress, and while still utilizing some interesting chord progressions and beats, kind of falls short thematically. She’s still trying to find her style.

FAV TRACKS: Human Behaviour, The Anchor Song
Björk is probably the most original and innovative music artist of all time. It is impossible to pass by her music indifferently because she always arouses incredible emotions in the listener. In her debut she showed the world her whole self, intriguing, emotional and creative artist who maybe hasn't reached the peak of her abilities yet but gave reasons for the whole world to start admiring her artistic genius.
