Okay, I want to be excited, but I'm not. That said, I don't know much Bjork.
All I have is "Medulla," which I find interesting, but not good.
Tell me albums to get, and specific songs to listen to. Make me a fan. Please.
I thought I recognized your user name on LJ.
Wow - you started with Medulla. The fact that you still want to give Bjork a chance after that is awesome. I mean, it's a cool album, but not the one to start with. "Post" is my favorite album. "Hyper-ballad" is one of my favorite songs ever recorded.
yeah, I'd heard Medulla was all a capella and human beatboxing, it intrigued me, so I started there. It's like starting out on Radiohead with Kid A...just doesn't work. I need to work my way there. Thanks.
I LOVE the Sugar Cubes! I still listen to them, but I kinda lost track of Bjork after the Suger Cubes. I don't really know why because her voice and music are amazing. I just loaded a few of her songs suggested in the above post...I can't wait to see her play live!
All Is Full Of Love may be my favorite Bjork song, and it's the closer on that album. But I like the single version better. The difference between the two is kind of mammoth, so you should definitely check both out.
Other favorite Bjork songs include: Joga, Alarm Call, Hyperballad, Human Behavior, Unison, New World, and Bachelorette
she sounded best when "the computer is sick" in 2004, and if i remember correctly, she did a song with just a cello (don't remember which one)
but her extraterrestial voice (in that its impossible for a human voice to be that great AND powerful) found the perfect visual symbiote in the full moon, and its only fitting she returns this year to another moonlit night, though it would be only goddmamn ideal if she sang Unison, every other stage, noise and voice went silent for those 7 minutes, and the only light for that time was a single, soft light on her from the control booth and the moon itself
