Bjork's masterwork. On her fourth record, the Icelandic pop artist started marrying her trip-hop backdrop with a hugely expansive and coldly experimental sound. This record was perhaps her darkest entry yet and did Post one better by boasting an orchestra of several billion -- each making strings swell, drums coalesce or cellos brood around Bjork's darkly moving songs.

- Homogenic by Björk
10/10 Jack 28th January 2015
After two very eclectic albums filled with experiments in sound and vocals, Bjork bounced back with this perfect gem, `Homogenic'. The saying `third times the charm' is entirely true; this is the first Bjork album with a definitive musical style, which carries throughout. Gone are the upbeat techno beats of `Debut' and the flair of `Post'. `Homogenic' is very dark, raw, powerful and completely timeless. Touching on universal issues of life, love, revelations and hurt, Bjork delves deeper than ever before. Again, Bjork is experimenting, but it's obvious she feels at home here. The music is very creative; it's like she took her native hymns and songs and added techno beats. It's very modern, and lovely.
