  1. The way that I thought this was a closeup of a Barbie done up in the style of the era.

  2. Tiddies out. Face beat. Ken divorced. Queen's on the prowl.

  3. Thanks! I’m a little bit lost though, so what’s the best version of the album? The first one (the one on black vinyl) or the other one?
     
  4. I got into Björk with Volta. I tried to keep the excitement up with Biophilia but preferred to deep dive into her past. I really loved Vulnicura. I enjoyed Utopia while seeing the shortcomings.

    Fossora is everything I liked about those albums but pumped up to the max. It’s amazing.

  7. Oh wow. This is exceptional. ‘Her Mother’s House’ finished and I had a little tear in my eyes thinking of my own mother.
    This might be the first Bjork album in a very long time where, after just one listen, I love it and want to play it all over again immediately.
    I’m so happy this is the case as the last few albums I have really struggled to connect with. I guess I just needed to get embedded in the fungi and mushrooms, who knew?

  9. “Victimhood” is immense. That BRAAAAAAAAAAP bass is giving tripod.

  10. Double post, just finished my first listen. This is a lot to take in on one go, but this is easily gunning for favorite album since Volta for me. She manages to cram so much into the experience, it’s a gorgeous trip. It would be way too intense for me to actually listen to shrooming, but it gives me such similar vibes. The way it sinks low and swings high. The way there are frightening moments and others that leave you kinda gobsmacked. The way “Her Mother’s House” is absolutely stunning and feels like a breathy sigh during your comedown. That sort of comfort and calm that bubbles up and wraps you in a blanket after the wild trek you’ve just gone through.

    Ísadora is used to perfection, by the way; she sounds beautiful paired with her mother.

  11. Listened to the album twice in a row this morning, a few hours later and I feel like listening to it again.
    This is by far my favourite Bjork album since Vespertine, what a triumph.
    30 years into her solo career and she did this.

  12. Fungal City sounds like i'm inside a video game. A bizarre but beautiful video game....title track is also insanely creative. She just doesn't miss!

  16. Yes, I've listened twice today, going in for a third now. I think the whole album is pretty solid, but the second half is especially fantastic.
     
  17. Why do I find every single picture they are using for magazine covers way better than the album cover?

  18. Oooo that is gorgeous.
    They could have possibly milked the fans even more by having different variants with different album covers.

    I'm really happy to see others enjoying this album as much as I am. I agree, it's probably the best since Vespertine.

    That Pitchfork review is so positive yet they won't give it the score it deserves. They gave 8.6 to Vulnicura and I would argue this album is better than that.
