Vulnicura is top 40 pop in comparison, but this is the real deal. I absolutely adore it from start to finish now.

Okay so yeah, it does sound better on the second listen but it's still disappointing as a whole. Loss and Arisen My Senses are by far my faves, i actually think they are both quite brilliant. Sue Me also grew on me big time. Saint and Future Forever also sound quite good together, i like them.

On the second listen i only don't like Utopia, Features Creatures. Body Memory and Courtship but i don't know, something feels off, i don't like that i feel absolutely nothing with some of the songs. Gonna play it more definitely cause it does sound better now, so there's a chance all the songs grow on me. Still my least favorite album of her, such a shame :(
Pleasure over matter.

Don't give up! It took almost a whole week for me to appreciate it in its entirety.

I adore this album, don't get some of the harsh comments being said about it. IMO it's just as good as Vulnicura, which I thought was a masterpiece for the first 4 songs but dragged a bit in the second half.

There is some real beauty, Loss and Future Forever are my favourites. Does sound like she is saying "fart" though :lol:

I should give this a second try before I give up completely

Björk's music is so taxing to listen to, I can't see how anyone would find enjoyment in it!

Björk is like plain vodka: it takes a while to get used to the taste, but after a while you understand how great it is.

gorgeous visuals, the music is still too impenetrable for me

I haven't commented yet because I am beyond words. Time will tell, but at the moment...

Utopia is Björks best album!
I've never heard anything like it before.

I am stuck somewhere in between irritating and interesting. Probably it will be a grower with me. Too early to tell.
