Product Description


This Icelandic marvel is such an original that, even after four Sugarcubes albums and a brilliant solo Debut, she remains an acquired taste. "Army of Me" is a turbulent, darkling tune that's almost conventional next to the gloriously eclectic material that follows. Working with Tricky, Soul II Soul/U2 producer Nellee Hooper, and string arranger/one-hit wonder Deodato, Björk looses her helium-fueled voice and surreal wordplay on Gershwinesque pop (the adorable "It's Oh So Quiet"), ambient dub ("Possibly Maybe") and all kinds of fresh dance/pop hybrids ("Enjoy," "Hyper-Ballad," "I Miss You"). Too raw and adventurous for mass success, perhaps, but a more unique, engaging, oddly accessible artist just doesn't exist. --Jeff Bateman

How did I miss this in the 1990s? Why did it take me almost ten years to hear this great album? Which excuse can I use? Surely not stupid youth - I was old enough to know good music when it smacked me in the face. So why didn't this smack me in the face in 1995? After soaking in the marvelous "Debut" (a crony forced me to listen to it, and my gratitude pours out for him) the expectations were admittedly pretty low for the follow up. Beginners luck, I thought, the next one will smell like putrid seepage. After all, second albums always reek, don't they? Ok, so I'm an idiot. "Post" in many ways surpasses its predecessor. Intimidating electronic industrial thumps provide fodder for both dancing and fear. Björk sounds outright scary and disturbing on some of these tracks (particularly "Army of Me" and "Enjoy" - two of the album's best songs). Then, just before you can stop cowering, she turns fear and rage into heartbreaking beauty on such songs as "Hyperballad", "You've been Flirting Again", and "Isobel". One of the album's biggest surprises is "It's Oh So Quiet" - a big band show-tooney type song in which Björk stretches her vocal cords to their absolute limit. Her screams penetrate the cochlea in unimaginable ways. Be prepared oh reposed and complacent headphone wearers. What a great song, and what a great demonstration of Björk's versatility and vocal prowess. Overall the album has a more electronic and industrial feel than "Debut" (which may account for its freshness even today). Björk explores many of the same themes here as on her first outing: Obsessive love, escape, heartbreak, being "naughty", and escape. An astounding follow-up album, and more amazing still considering what comes next.

I was recently on vacation in Puerto Rico and wanted to buy some CD's for the rental car. The only two cd's in the store worth buying were Janet Jackson's Design of a Decade and Bjork's "Debut". I listended to both CD's throughout my trip. I have been a Janet Jackson fan for sometime, but Bjork got under my skin on this trip. I am now a full-fledged fanatic. I never realized that almost all of Bjork's songs are love songs. The only remote comparison I can make of her is like a Nordic, deconstructed, sometimes minimal, electronic Billie Holliday. She can be gloomy, elated, ecstatic, whatever. When she sings, the songs are hers.
My favorite song on the CD is Isobel. Listen to Missy Elliot's "Really Hot" and see how ahead of her time Bjork is. The beat sequence is almost identical.
Possibly, Maybe is another beauty. It hits the feeling of a breakup on the nose.
To all of the people who wrote bad reviews of Bjork, if you don't have something nice to say..... Bjork has been singing most of her life and experts would agree, she has a natural singing voice and an expressive and wide vocal range. Can anyone complaining make those sounds with their voices, on key no less? She knows music inside and out, and the wierd and avant garde sounds are INTENTIONAL. Besides, one has to have an acute knowledge of music to turn it inside out like that. Listen closely and you will hear the genius. Barbara Streisand has been done. We don't need anymore singers sounding like someone else.
Also, the videos from her DVD collection go hand in hand with the songs. You really get the true meaning and a grasp of the songs.

QUOTE: Possibly The Worst Singer In The World! by Cassandra Dongoski. I listened to this C.D. a while back & I almost went deaf this cd is awful this chick can not sing & this album is so freaky & scary!I could barely get through this whole cd! If I could give it zero stars I would! I have never heard of her kind of music it's like she has her own music catergory!If your into freaky & different stuff then you probably will like it! all songs have a outer space sound with weird noises!I don't know what I can recommend to you if you like this except anything Bjork! :UNQUOTE
NOW, my turn. I could NOT stop laughing at your atrocious review of an album by one of THE best singers of our time. She has a phenomenal range and a fantastically individual style (<that's a GOOD thing). Not only that, I am painfully aware of the fact that you are terrified of anything different, because you have been brainwashed. Yes. I'm sorry: brainwashed. It happens to all the weak-willed in America ("BE THE BEST!"). The culprits? Britney Christina and all the other boob flashers and shrill squealers (who, by the way, have to "collaborate" with the "hippest" new producers to get a hit).

Bjork is one of the few artists I have never gotten tired of, because there is always something new to listen out for. Debut can be my favourite some days, and other days my favourite is Homogenic or Vespertine or Post or Telegram (underrated) or Selmasongs. I don't have a set favourite song on this album, however I do love the extreme exmperimentalism of Cover Me. My advice to anyone who has heard this album is to search for the version of Army of Me that Bjork recorded with Skunk Anansie. She goes hell for leather on it and it is gorgeous for those days when you could do with a bit of a scream, but are too exhausted to do so. This review probably won't be helpful to you, but I just like to get things off my chest.
