Reseña de álbum

By the late '90s, Björk's playful, unique world view and singular voice became as confining as they were defining. With its surprising starkness and darkness, 1997's Homogenic shatters her "Icelandic pixie" image. Possibly inspired by her failed relationship with drum'n'bass kingpin Goldie, Björk sheds her more precious aspects, displaying more emotional depth than even her best previous work indicated. Her collaborators — LFO's Mark Bell, Mark "Spike" Stent, and Post contributor Howie B — help make this album not only her emotionally bravest work, but her most sonically adventurous as well. A seamless fusion of chilly strings (courtesy of the Icelandic String Octet), stuttering, abstract beats, and unique touches like accordion and glass harmonica, Homogenic alternates between dark, uncompromising songs such as the icy opener, "Hunter," and more soothing fare like the gently percolating "All Neon Like." The noisy, four-on-the-floor catharsis of "Pluto" and the raw vocals and abstract beats of "5 Years" and "Immature" reveal surprising amounts of anger, pain, and strength in the face of heartache. "I dare you to take me on," Björk challenges her lover in "5 Years," and wonders on "Immature," "How could I be so immature/To think he would replace/The missing elements in me?" "Bachelorette," a sweeping, brooding cousin to Post's "Isobel," is possibly Homogenic's saddest, most beautiful moment, giving filmic grandeur to a stormy relationship. Björk lets a little hope shine through on "Jòga," a moving song dedicated to her homeland and her best friend, and the reassuring finale, "All Is Full of Love." "Alarm Call"'s uplifting dance-pop seems out of place with the rest of the album, but as its title implies, Homogenic is her most holistic work. While it might not represent every side of Björk's music, Homogenic displays some of her most impressive heights.

all is full of love . . .

this album is absolutely magical. i'd recommend this to anyone who enjoys getting lost in their music. HOMOGENIC is bold, elegant, magnetic, fearless. BjöRk delivers an adventurous record, taking you to worlds only she can unlock.

KEY TRACKS: hunter, jóga, bachelorette, all is full of love.

do yourself a favor - buy it!

This is the 4th album of Bjork's that I've heard, starting with Volta and working backwards, and so far I have to say that this is the one I enjoy most. The songs on this album just stick to yr head once you hear em. "Joga" is such an amazing song, and right now I'd have to say is my favorite track by her. "Immature" is my second favorite track - the beat in the beginning is addcitive. All of the songs in this album are great and the instrumentation is awesome. Bjork's voice is so beautiful in this album. I love every single song in this album (though "Bachelorette is my least fave, even though it is still such a strong track).
This abum is a must-have - it's just sooooo great. Majestic.

I could listen to this for days.

I would give this more than 5 stars if I could.

Björk originalmente se destacó como una de las cantantes líderes del sexteto de avant-pop islandés The Sugarcubes, pero cuando lanzó su carrera solista después de la separación del grupo en 1992, rápidamente eclipsó la popularidad de su banda anterior. En vez de seguir con las pretensiones de art rock de los Sugarcubes, Björk se sumergió en la cultura del baile y las discotecas. Debut, su primer trabajo verdadero como solista, no sólo estableció su nueva dirección artística, sino que la convirtió...
