Björk's evolution into starchild siren was pretty surprising given her predisposition for flighty, often jarring musical juxtapositions. Homogenic was arguably her first fully formed statement as a passionate, forward-thinking ambassador to electronic pop. I'm reminded of her spiritual godmother Kate Bush's 1985 release Hounds of Love, in the way Homogenic fuses state-of-the-art production techniques with its protagonist's idiosyncratic song forms and instantly distinctive alto call. The mysterious, punchy impressionism of "Hunter", spacey new age of "All Neon Like", and malleable, beatless wonder of "All Is Full of Love" are just a few examples of the album's compassionate, slightly off-center romanticism. LFO's Mark Bell produced many of the tracks and he gives Homogenic a futuristic tinge despite trading the florescence of Björk's previous efforts a wider pallet of pastels. Only on the experimental house of "Pluto" does she step out from her cocoon in a fit of rage, although even then an air of intrigue envelops the track. Homogenic, living up to its title, is one of the most perfectly formed records of any era, and it is entirely possible that Björk will never approach this level of consistently enrapturing beauty again.
