      Can't say i don't agree but have they ever given a 10 to any album?

        They don't give it to newer albums, but they hand it out in these retrospective reviews. They have handed out 113 10/10 scores. You can check them all out here:

          Three Joni's in there

          Anyway, it's been a while since I listened to "Post", giving it a spin later.

            Time to bring back this gem:

                  So glad to see you mention Selmasongs, it gets really overlooked because it's a soundtrack.

                  • I still haven't heard her entire discography but from what I know my faves are:
                    Post
                    Homogenic
                    Vespertine
                    Biophilia
                    Vulnicura
                    And yes, Utopia. My most played Bjork album actually.

                    • I love Selmasongs, but the film is a difficult one to watch

                      everytime some is like: .... Bjork who? I go : you know, Rattle, clang, crack, thud, whack, bam! ; hmmm the one with swan dress? and then I realize I don't wanna explain anymore and this person doesn't deserve it hahaha

                      • I love Selmasong and Dancer in the Dark!

                        • Dancer in the Dark is so terribly sad. I can’t watch it again.

                          • I remember that I went to see dancer in de dark with a friend and at the end of the movie she cried and got angry, she told me that you brought me to see something so sad !!

                            • A very good friend and I have done Diva Movie Night for years and I keep putting off Dancer in the Dark for fear that my very empathic friend will be destroyed by it. But they do appreciate original and unique art-house films and Dancer is definitely that, so it may be time to revisit it.

                              I do remember preferring the film versions of the songs to their Selmasongs counterparts for a variety of reasons. "I've Seen It All" has a more dynamic mix in the film than the more muted Thom Yorke duet, where its train-track sampling beat gets buried by the orchestra. But I do think the album is a worthy entry in Björk's orchestral cannon, rounded out by Homogenic, Vespertine and Vulnicura
                              The sands of time fade into dark
                              Feel your pulse it's groove o'clock
                              A message to madness
                              Feel music that's realness

                                I love that movie and have seen it twice, but I don't know if I have it in me for a rewatch, even though I've last seen it probably 10 years ago. And I don't go recommending it to anyone. If it pops up in a conversation (and surprisingly it happens from time to time) I will always say that I think it's a brilliant movie, but I won't say "You must watch it.". The movie definitely has a lot of life and joy draining experience, even though I'm usually hardly moved by things.

                                  Cvalda is not more well-known than It’s Oh So Quiet, unfortunately.
