So I'm listening to "Volta" right now...

...and I must say it's friggen fantastic.

A full review will come after a couple more listens. It's seriously one of her best albums though. I could see this settling comfortably into the #2 spot right behind Homogenic.



I approve.

I got a fairy decent leak. It's still not great by any stretch of the imagination, but it's listenable. I heart there was one out with skips all over the place. Is that the one you got? I could try to point you in the direction of a slightly better one if so.

But Wanderlust is seriously mindblowing. Could possibly be me second favorite track she's ever done.

I found a link for it last night, but I haven't gotten around to downloading it yet. I'll probably do that tomorrow. I'd kind of forgotten about Bjork for awhile, and then one of my friends was watching clips of SNL's Celebrity Jeopardy the other night.

Vespertine? The only great thing off Vespertine is "Unison", which may be the best thing she's ever done, alongside some of her most boring, mediocre stuff.


It's all about Post and Homogenic!!!

i've listened to it once now.

first impression: strong 1st half, not so strong 2nd half.

Yeah, the second half isn't immediately captivating, but I can definitely see it growing on me... a lot.
