Rolling Stone wrote: “Björk Gudmundsdottir has always been a strange one. The eccentric ex-Sugarcube draws her fashion sense from fairy tales, her voice from some alternate heaven and her music? Well, she once cited nature-show host Sir David Attenborough as her biggest musical influence, saying she identified with his thirst for exploring new and wild territories… On her second major solo album, this 29-year-old native of Reykjavik, Iceland, embarks on her most unlikely journey yet; Post comes up as victorious and gallant as any of her Viking forefathers. Chock-full of curious noises, mesmerizing vocals and musical surprises, Post provides a much-needed escape route from alternative rock’s dull offerings of late.” Score: 4/5
