iTunes Review

“Don’t remove my pain / It is my chance to heal.” Delivered in a wounded cry of desperation, this lyric—from standout track “Notget”—is emblematic of Björk’s profoundly vulnerable ninth studio album. Given sonic texture by her lush string arrangements and the skittering beats of co-producer Arca, Vulnicura was written in response to the dissolution of Björk’s longtime relationship with artist Matthew Barney. Following the cosmically conceptual Biophilia (2011), it’s disarming yet reassuring to hear the Icelandic icon’s stratospheric voice wailing bluntly about recognizable human emotions. In the vibrant album closer “Quicksand,” she sings of finding new life through heartache: “The steam from this pit / Will form a cloud / For her to live on.”

Customer Reviews

Quenches the thirst my ears have

It sure is different. But I'm not buying her music because I want to listen to the same things that are already out there. I love this album!

Björk is Brilliant

Björk's use of memorable melodies, unorthodox percussive pulsations, laudable lyrics, electric and intuitive instrumentations, and underlying classical chords exceeds brilliance. The theoretical wit within the album gives Björk an intelligent edge; having said that, the album exploits personal and emotional experiences and is not lacking the indescribable quality found in meaningful music that captivates the mind, spirit, and soul. The album has grim undertones and qualities that are unquestionably deeply intimate. The sadness is beautifully profound. Björk’s album creates an obvious emotional experience. Vulnicura clearly exploits every distinct aspect that defines music worthy of praise and is an accomplished work of art. Well done.

OK

Found this OK, but note exiting… it really sounds the same than much of her work in the last 5/8 years.

Björk first came to prominence as one of the lead vocalists of the avant pop Icelandic sextet the Sugarcubes, but when she launched a solo career after the group's 1992 demise, she quickly eclipsed her old band's popularity. Instead of following in the Sugarcubes' arty guitar rock pretensions, Björk immersed herself in dance and club culture, working with many of the biggest names in the genre, including Nellee Hooper, Underworld, and Tricky. Debut, her first solo effort (except for an Icelandic-only...
