5.0 out of 5 stars Bjork's Intense, Homo--and--Genic!, 8 May 2007
This review is from: Homogenic (Audio CD)
Coming into the new world that Bjork is. I was very impressed to find myself with probably one the best CD's that I own in my collection. For years, I have thought that Bjork's music was nothing but weird "stuff". "Stuff" that I never thought was going to be as deep as it is.

I can clearly say that "Homogenic' is not an easy record. It's not easily likeable, and will not suit your ear on the first listen. This off course those not mean that the CD is not worth a listen, it means that this music is so "out there", so experimental, that your ears wont be able to handle it on a first time bases.

"Homogenic" it's the combination of passion, hatred, love and feelings that come from the inside. The album starts of with three lead singles "Hunter", "Joga" and "Bachelorette". Hardcore song. Bjorks roars "I am a hunter/I'm going hunting", claims that she loves to be in "state of emergency" and demonstrate her pain after her hurtful breakdown of her relationship. (I'm a whisper in water/secret for you to hear/you are the one who grows distant/ when I beckon you near.) The record also finishes with the other two highlights "Alarm Call" and "All Is Full Of Love", probably being one of my favorites. Even thought the album might come as intense, it has its up beat songs: "Pluto", "Immature" and "5 Years". Not necessarily upbeat, but definitely have a strong musical arrangements.

It is no question that Bork plays with lyrics, more than ever before. They are more in depth--not that they ever weren't--, more playful and more full of live. In "5 Years" she sings "I'm tired of cowards/that say they want/but they cant handle love/ it's obvious".

It is no question that Bjork plays with instrument. This is no "Post" or "Debut" it is the growth of a musician, no fears, full risks, and passion for music, cause without passion, neither music nor love, like proved in this record, can survive.
