Book Description

19 Aug 2002
A skilled and evocative wordsmith and songwriter who made her first at 11 years old, and since then has built up a compelling, fascinating body of work, Bjork, uniquely among muti-million-selling international artists, has always maintained a defiantly experimental edge to her music. Human Behaviour is a detailed analysis and celebration of Bjork's career and musical history to date, delving into her creative processes and motivations with the same insight with which she tackles the human condition. From her precocious pre-teen debut through the giddy electro-leaning delights of Debut to current hit Vespertine, Human Behaviour will be the definitive companion to Bjork's musical output - and a must-have for her legion devoted fans.

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
As a big Björk fan, this book was a no-brainer. I enjoyed the descriptions and explanations of Björk's canon, and there was a lot of trivia I was unaware of. The book also covers in some depth her collaborations and dabblings - although bizarrely, it misses (unless I haven't seen it mentioned) her involvement in Plaid's 'Not For Threes' album.

The book does exactly what you would expect, and is a must for all Björk fans. Writing abjectively though, I feel four stars is fair because the book is not exactly designed to appeal to anyone who is indifferent or unkeen on Ms. Guðmundsdóttir. It can be a little biased in places as well.

Covering everything from pre-Sugarcubes to Vespertine (the book is a 2002 publication), and everything inbetween, this is a great read for those who have followed Björk and have loved her different, varied and interesting career.
