At the time, just after the turn of a new century, Vespertine felt like a logical progression from Homogenic, released four years previously. The increased orchestral presence is rich and lush, backed with more considered, detailed beats and songs which travel from the dark and folkloric to movingly romantic.

Another whopper is the Bjork LP which took some time for me to get into but I can conclude it is a work of art and a wonderous thing.
It looks lovely and sounds tops. Not many pop songs and not half as poppy as other LPs. Very mature sounding infact. Also on the LP you'll find folks like Matmos, Thoms Knak (Opiate) and Console on there. Vespertine is thoroughly splendid.
9/10 Jack Customer review, 18th September 2015
The new century started pretty well for the Icelandic performer, as she put out the ethereal, ambient-new age-ish Vespertine, a wonderful masterpiece that deals with introspection, loneliness. Björk has proved to be a very talented performer who knows how to depict self-discovery and loneliness, by creating a deliciously dark mood. Unlike the previous releases, Vespertine seems to be hard to follow at first listen. Once you get to know the content and meaning of each song, you will certainly find it very satisfying.
