ive been listening to bjork again big time these past couple of days. she really is amazing. her records all have the most beautiful textures, atmespheres, beats, everything. not to mention her voice is one of the most beautiful ever, i mean shes gotta be up there with i dunno, aretha franklin for sheer vocal power. my favorite female solo vocalist/performer probably ever, and shes gotta be the best of the last 15 years or so. i was just wondering of those who dig her on this board, whats your favorite alblums by her? i dont think shes had one misstep up untill last year with volta (which sucks, huge dissapointment, it aint terrible but i was expecting it to be one of the best of the year considering its bjork and she had the likes of brian chippendale, timbaland, antony, chris corsano, all those icelandic brass muscianas, just so many great collaborators)

my faves:
homogenic (produced by mark bell of lfo and howie b, huge beats, great lyrics, bjork's vocals one the top of her game, wildly experimental in comparison with earlier works, her best record)/

medulla (way underrated, the whole fucking record is almost made exclusivley from the human voice for fucks sakes! this alblum gets my pic just for sheer idea, without even counting the quality of the tracks)

any other bjork fans in the house?

She is one of the most consistantly brilliant artists, and very unfashionable. Cue lots of posts telling you how shit she is, and how over-rated, and how she smells like poo.

I love Bjork. She's so fly. That bitch is crazy, though. I wouldn't fuck with her.

I got Holiday in Europe the other week. That's one of the Kukl records. I was surprised at how much better it was than the Sugarcubes (who had some AMAZING singles). Bjork is a bit to ubiquitous for me to ever remember how good she actually is when I get round to listening to her. But that's definitely my problem.

I ordered The Sugarcubes' Life's Too Good a week ago. I'm also interested in the KUKL stuff.

I'm not a huge fan of her albums, but I do like some songs, and I love her videos.I think she's pretty cute.. or was.. I dunno.. she's older now..And her husband (?) Matthew Barney is one of the worst human beings in the history of existence.Her voice is interesting.She's an interesting person... a bit overrated overall but yeah. I'm glad she exists.

It surprises me how you nearly always manage to say something wrong. Are you an internet art project?

No, I'm not, but if I were, my art would still be better than his.

Homogenic is my fave too. I wanted to give Medulla a new listen but I can't find my copy.

sorry but i've always disliked her.

there was a time when i liked "army of me" but, seriously, it's only half a good chorus and lazy/annoying song/vocals/instrumental/songwriting like 99.9999% of her stuff. seriously, what i don't like about her is how she tries to compensate mediocrity with "excentricity".

That is how I feel. I think I've listened to like 5 of her albums hoping to "find something" in the music that I dig/relate to, but it just ain't happening.
