Post is Björk's 2nd studio album, released in June 1995, having been recorded from late 1994-April 1995.
This album continues the streak of versatile genres she explored on Debut, which I absolutely adored to pieces when I heard it earlier this week. It also includes the likes of Ambient, Industrial & IDM blended into the mix.
Post, however, goes for a more dark palette in sound as the atmospheres present are sonically more haunting.
Björk wrote most of these songs after she moved to London, with intentions on making this album reflect on her new life there.
I'm assuming the artwork could be interpreted as a struggle to adjust to the city life, with all the colours and structures behind her representing a chaotic experience.
Again, like Debut, I was simply just in awe with how this album sounds completely different with each track, channeling multiple complex driven emotions that feels like a strong step out a fragile comfort zone and releasing many sides that an artist like Björk can unleash into one album.
Post is also lyrically vulnerable in nature as Björk explores different personal themes like sex, fear, self-pity & hedonistic tendencies.
Musically, it's gorgeous as well. Jumping from dance-worthy to abrasive to tender, there's not a moment where this album sounds the same.
Post is another example in defining Björk as a one-of-a-kind talent who is fearless in every style she approaches and succeeds with each risk she takes. Cannot wait to hear her two follow-up albums in the coming weeks.
