I had been avoiding Bjork's music over the years, fearing her eccentricity, her weirdness, I'd always felt she was a 'human alien'. It was until a few months ago, while I was looking for cassettes to buy on a record store, I found Debut.

And I thought to myself 'Why not pick up this one?'. So I did [though reluctantly].

Before I bought this album , I had known some of the titles. And I was frightened. You know titles like 'Violently Happy' or 'The Anchor Song' used to freak me out [silly, I know]. But that day, I decided to let go of my fear and give this record a try.

And when I bought it..I realised that I was completely wong!

This record, along with Post and Homogenic, ranks up to be one of the best records ever released.

And what surprised me more is that the lyrics, are actually relatable.

The lyrics aren't as 'outer-spacey' or as 'larger than life' than I thought.

Like on 'Come to Me', 'Aeroplane' and 'One Day'. The lyrics are talking about love, about feeling affection, desire, longing for a loved one or 'Crying' and 'Violently Happy' which are about feeling lost and longing towards someone you deeply care about.

So I was blown away.

Let's not forget songs like 'Human Behaviour' with its jungl-ish sound, hard-hitting percussion beat and spicy guitar sounds near the end of the song, it's just breath-taking. And the lyrics are also genius: "If you ever get close to a human/A human behaviour/Be ready, be ready to get confused/There's definitely, definitely no logic/In human behaviour"... Simply a classic.

'Venus as a Boy' and 'Big Time Sensuality' are talking about sexuality and attraction [most notably the former].

The article below is mistaken. This album is far from nonsense bland pop! Although her later work is perhaps more obviously produced and more expense has been given to samples, the apparent rawness of Debut always leave a sparkle of freshness and youth. The sound is dancy, poppy, brooding at times but there is always her stunning vocals mixed with passion and her lightness and depth of being shine through. An excellent album for chilling out, thinking, getting high - her career was not born here in humble beginnings, she just allows us to see her for what she is.

This is a truly amazing album, any fan of Bjork should have this. I've had it years and even when I was ten I was still stunned by her beautiful voice. I love it even more now, I really love the way it is so creative and different. This was a brilliant album to kick off her solo career, and I'm so pleased she's still going now. Some people think Bjork is quite weird, but I think she's cool, and this album proves it. This goes beyond the usual pop music, its something so different and thrilling, it works brilliantly with some slow songs and some upbeat, and all unique. Daring to be so creative has payed off so well as everyone appreciates this so much. This album is also now very high up on so many peoples' lists of favourite albums. She has practicaly created a genre of her own.
"Human Behaviour" never ceases to amaze me, I love the bassline and beat and her voice works with it so well, I loved it even more when I saw the video- also great and very creative. "There's more to life than this" is a good one to dance to, and will be sure to put you in good form. "Like someone in love" is thrilling. The harp and her voice work like electricity. It sends a million shivers down my spine, I love the way she sings with so much feeling, it still amazes me everytime, and I can't get enough of it. "Big time sensuality" is another dancey one, again not ordinary, but with her own stamp on it. Billiant!
"The anchor song" is great as well, some people may be a little disappointed with it, but it really is fantastic. Again changing direction, with brass instruments, like the harp- in "like someone in love" these also compliment her voice. The words of the song are great as well, saying how she loves where she lives, and in a great way, shows her identity.

This is a class album. Bjork's debut album is incredible one of the best albums to come out of the 90's. The album contains a number of single releases, when i first listened to this album i was shocked and stunned. The opening track is 'Human Behaviour' which is incredible, along with tracks 'big time sensuality' 'play dead' which is incredible love the orchestra sound and is class. My favorite on the album would be 'like someone in love' which is a great record. Love the acoustic sound, brillant. 'Venus as a boy' is incredible, great song and love the music. Bjork has such a unique voice, maybe some would disagee but you cannt take away her difference in music. 'Anchor Song' is also good, and just every track on the record, if this review wasn't enough then i am disappointed. It's an album of the 90's not to be missed.

I first bought Post, so when I purchased Debut, it was with some excitement and trepidation. I remembered such delights as Venus As A Boy, Violently Happy and Play Dead, but I wanted to know what else Bjorks primary offering was about.
And, yes, there are a few tracks which have me reaching for the SKIP button, but to gloss over them with words such as "bland" is just too easy. They all have a purpose on the album, and all contribute to it.
Stand-outs to me are "More To Life Than This", "Violently Happy" and "Play Dead", but every single one of them deserves a mention.
Well worth a purchase if you already have Post and Homogenic. You have to have the original trio, otherwise how will it all make sense????
