5.0 out of 5 stars Dark Dub Star, 20 Feb 2012
This review is from: Homogenic (Audio CD)
A great talent, that on this disc pulled apart her red velvet Palladium curtains, those tethered with the gold silken spider web thread, to allow the viewer to gaze from the front. Bjork turns up as an entertainer rather than some "pop fodder," which attracts those with adolescent hormones to the sugary make believe worlds of perennial kitsch.

She allowed the general star struck public to finally enter her self built world, and it appeared, it was too dark for them. Accustomed to light, bubbly, frothy effervescent pop, she enticed them all with sugar lollies and iced candy, before providing a red wool carpet, for all and sundry to enter her Norse mythological world. When you enter this you are gradually pulled in and then the doors slam. Poor little creatures used to lite entertainment get all woosy and want to back out.

Deep bass pulses announce with strings her full intent; Bjork appears as the huntress. Eerie voices swoop in from the night skies and frighten the little kittens. Emotions tug at the gut, as the viola plays to her state of emergency, a plea to her fragmentation as she sears in her storm ridden sea. Whoosh the music goes, ouch goes the born too young.

Meanwhile she has shut off the lights and performs in the astral dark. Classical strings, linked to dub and trance allow her to perform vocal gymnastics as she cavorts as a malevolent sprite shimmering in front of your face. The little girl lost swoops to avenge her solitude with determined force.

After she has had her way, finally you are tossed out, right at the end and enter a world less somehow real.
