This review is from: Vespertine (Audio CD)
Vespertine is not quite like Bjork's earlier albums (Debut, Homogenic, Post). Its lush orchestration and heavenly choirs take her to a new level. It takes a while to appreciate, but is now my absolute favourite. The Bjork voice is as fresh and the lyrics are as quirky as ever - who else could come up with "Now I have been slightly shy / But I can smell a pinch of hope"? Pure poetry! From the opening track "Hidden Place" to the gorgeous "Unison", this is music at its most ethereal and sublime.
