5.0 out of 5 stars Bjork's continued reign of 90's pop culture, 4 Sep 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Post (Audio CD)
Debut took the world by storm with millions upon millions of copies of the album being sold, Post at that time was predicted to underperform!...a thought so hard to grasp now of course, with over 4 million albums sales worldwide almost matching Debut's success and matching that Trip Hop elemental electronica pop and ambient style of Debut, this time we have something more colourful with the addition of Ambient and Pop Rock styles too to add to this albums character and in every way is as much as a classic as ever and is highly regarded by critics as one of the definitive albums of the 90's.

As i stated in my previous review of Debut, Bjork is one of my all time favourite artists because of her striking imagination and creations with her recordings, each so feirce,vibrant and a force of nature, and alongside Madonna,Marvin Gaye and Kate Bush defined me and my perspectives of music and entertainment, that unusual vibe is so love and the sense of raw emotion conveyed within each song, so blissful and frenetic it makes somewhat of an intriguing listen everytime, and like Debut and the follow up to Post Homogenic it is an albums that is considered timeless and grows with it's organic sounds! 15 years later.

Also it must be noted (as i mentioned earlier) Queen Of Pop Madonna herself is a fan of her work ensured she collaborated on her Bedtime Stories title song in 1994 inbetween albums, a song that is so very deep and elemental it was a match literally made in heaven that many critics were taken by surprise, in fact i was surprised that Bjork didn't provide vocals on a song from Madonna's Ray Of Light album a few years later (another definitive classic album!).

Also the songs Hyperballad and Isobel from this album are highly regarded classics that makes Post a must listen alone!

an absolute mesmerising affair, 10/10
