Musical perfection? I think so.
Beautiful, stunning, enchanting, intricate, transcendent, you name it. The experience this album offers is unreal. With an incredible array of detailed layers each cast heavenly on the artistic canvas, Vespertine is Björk at her absolute best. Simply put, this album is pure musical bliss.
For me, this is definitely the least accessible album so far in Björk’s discography. In the ... read more
When it comes down to break-up albums my mind goes straight to clichéd acoustic guitars, corny lyric delivery, and super generic pop melodies and hooks. Björk on the other hand, in typical Björk fashion, creates a breathtaking, kaleidoscopic, brain-melting, and sonically unreal break-up album.
Vulnicura is probably Björk’s most personal album up to this point, focusing mainly on her emotions leading up ... read more
Hey Siri, define nostalgia bait: *spits out this album*. In all seriousness though, I absolutely despise this sort of purposeless tacky sampling where it’s just carelessly thrown into songs with little to no positive effect.

The quality of the mainstream pop scene has noticeably declined in recent years, with many big artists tending to rely on formulaic structures, predictable creative ... read more
Props to Björk for having Mother Nature as a collaborator on this album! Actually, could she just be Mother Nature herself?...
Björk’s seventh outing has what is probably my favourite theme/concept I’ve experienced in her albums so far: connecting the beautiful qualities of nature with the world of technology, both lyrically and musically. The sound of this one feels quite similar to her albums in the 90s + ... read more
Debut + Homogenic + Medúlla = Volta?
This seems to be a return to Björk’s roots. It’s clear that she’s gone back to her earlier ‘clusterfuck of styles’ sound while also including many of the elements from the chaotic good that permeated throughout Medúlla, minus the acapella and beatboxing of course.
First off I love how you can hear bits and pieces from the main characteristics of each ... read more
