Björk - Fossora
Sep 30, 2022
60
Björk is back with some more Björk-like weirdness, showcasing a dense sound palette, icy aesthetics, and unique song-structures.
The album has a dystopian quality to it with various industrial elements and odd atmospheres being present, making it feel like an extraterrestrial trip at times, similar to the one on 2001: A Space Odyssey. I also enjoyed most of the lyrics which I found to be both sincere and meaningful.

As for the negatives, some of the tracks did become quite stale due to lack of progression and general excitement. It most certainly wasn't a bad listen but it didn't captivate me or blow me away as much as I hoped for.

Overall, this record sounds great and the world created on it is awe-inspiring. However, at the end of the day, I struggle to pull anything more out of it. Hopefully, it clicks for me more in the future.
