This review is from: Medulla (Audio CD)
Songs to break your heart. Songs to free your mind.
In her extraordinary musical journey Bjork brings us here to new territory which few other contemporary artists could even begin to imagine.
Whilst at the same time a synthesis and distilation of all that has gone before Medulla brings to life a challenging soundworld of unparalled complexity from the simplest formal elements.
With her singular voice and those of her fearless cohorts she has created fourteen exhilarating pieces whose range, from communal bliss to almost unbearable intimacy, both challenges and thrills in equal measure.
Be warmed in the arms of the beautiful carol-like cadences of 'Vokuro';
dance like a dervish to the wild alien disco of 'Triumph of a Heart';
float in the sultry latin rhythms of 'Oceania' and feel the pure honesty
and essence of a woman at the height of her creative powers in 'Who Is It' and 'Sonnets/Unrealities XI'.
Dear Ms Gudmundsdottir the word genius would not be wasted here.
