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

BJÖRK Released Her First Supreme Solo Album ‘DEBUT’ 25 Years Ago…

Going back in sonic history looking for memorable albums…

3 July 2018

Artist: BJÖRK

Album: DEBUT – her first solo album

Released: 5 July 1993 – 25 years ago

ALL MUSIC wrote: “Freed from the Sugarcubes’ confines, Björk takes her voice and creativity to new heights on Debut, her first work after the group’s breakup. With producer Nellee Hooper’s help, she moves in an elegantly playful, dance-inspired direction, crafting highly individual, emotional electronic pop songs. Possibly her prettiest work, Björk’s horizons expanded on her other releases, but the album still sounds fresh, which is even more impressive considering electronic music’s whiplash-speed innovations. Debut not only announced Björk’s remarkable talent; it suggested she had even more to offer.”
Score: 5/5 – Full review here
