5.0 out of 5 stars My favourite Bjork album to date, 12 Oct. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Biophilia (Audio CD)
Yeah,I like this. It is odd, experimental,beautiful,unsettling and uncompromising. It is also gloriously humourous and loopy( in a good way ). Indeed,the strength of this lies in the fact that she does not yield to any expectation,commercial or musical.She makes music for herself,Dont let this put you off though there are some really beautiful,memorable melodies,harmonies and orchestrations here that do stay in your head.

This is a particularly rich,multi-layered album,where you just dont know what what you will hear next.Maybe not everything works-as is always the case with this artist but that's the price you pay for the stuff that does work.Some of the sounds are unique and indescribable so I wont try,but the vision and intelligence of the creator are apparent throughout.Dark Matter is really creepy highlight also Hollow stands out as something quite unique.Lyrically,we go from mythology to geology,and from cosmology to biology. Not an album to be consumed while commuting or at the gym-this deserves more attention. Comfy chair, good headphones and no distractions.

I cannot recommend this to everyone though.I suppose it could seem too baffling and wierd to the more conventially-minded.This album is normal for Bjork though, and follows the trajectory already established by Drawing Restraint 9 and to a lesser extent, Volta. One of the better Bjork albums and an amazing sounding piece of work.
