Bjork - Vulnicura

I'm not sure if this is the correct place to post this, but the percussion on this album strikes me as idm-like, so here it goes.

I just finished giving this album a listen and I thought it was excellent. The vocal and string harmonies are great. The percussion is somewhat unique and done in a way that I enjoy. The album has a way of going back and forth between structured and almost ambient sections that works well. So as I said, overall I think it is excellent.

Post your thoughts peeps. Also doge rules.

Re: Bjork - Vulnicura

Is it possible to critique her music without getting her genitals involved? Why is it so many people have to cause indignity to a woman's hard work by reducing it to her body parts and ridiculing it? smh.

I personally don't enjoy her music or this album, but I respect what she does. She writes and produces most of her music and it clearly resonates with a lot of people.

Have you not seen the blatant fanny on her outfit?

I'd say she's courting her own indignity in some kind of attempt to empower herself and make a point.
The album is supposedly inspired by her break up with her ex boyfriend.
These things may be linked.

It's the flipside to Vespertine. That earlier album is softer and more delicate, while this one is rough and actually quite dark, then there's the pronounced story arc from first to last track. I couldn't sense one as much on Vespertine. Vulnicura is not my favourite but it's a darn good album. Vespertine was produced by greats.

Re: Bjork - Vulnicura

I dunno, I feel like Bjork sounds amateurish both in terms of lyrics and composition. The sound design is good, but that's about it. And her accent is annoying enough that I feel she should give up singing in English. All this, and I used to be a Bjork fan.

Usually she has one good tune on each album though.

That's kind of a strong opinion.
What's wrong with people having an accent.
How's your Icelandic?

You know your accent is annoying enough that I feel you should give up talking in English.

Her unique accent is part of her appeal. She's exceptionally bizarre in almost every way. It fits with the music.

There's nothing wrong with people having accents. There is something wrong with musicians who can't properly pronounce their own lyrics. It alienates some of the target audience (people who speak and understand English).

Please don't twist my opinion around like you did. Meow!

Re: Bjork - Vulnicura

I'm not, I'm just suggesting that your problem with her accent is your problem, not hers.
How many more people do you think she might alienate if she sang in Icelandic?
Don't be silly.

We need more female war drums in this thread. The discussion about accents and pussies is not yet at its peak.
