Customer Reviews

Its probably my second favorite on the album and one of my most favorite Bjork songs of all time.
Joel
As a writer/composer, everything Bjork does is a work of art, and every album has something different to offer.
C. D. Johnson
A Like Someone in Love: also sung by Sinatra, Bjork is accompanied only a shimmering harp. beautifully done.

Bjork has refined her sound and evolved as an artist, inspiring others since her first album, released in '93, but 'Debut' is a treasure that's just as priceless and definitely worth having in one's collection. She impressed and showed much potential here, suggesting more to offer in the future, and is one of few that manages to outshine the previous endeavor with the next. She blew many electronic fans away with her refreshingly innovative style and wacky video ideas, staking her claim as a force not to be reckoned with.
On latter albums such as 'Homogenic' and 'Vespertine', the songs were deeper and ultimately darker but most of the material here is playful dance tunes. The music, however, is creatively unique with Bjork's vocal prowess and groovy atmospherics. She became a household name with club hits like "Big Time Sensuality" and "Violently Happy" but, for me, the true highlights include the emotionally-charged "Venus As a Boy" - a striking melody with hypnotic beats and lush strings that have a slight Middle Eastern feel, and the beautifully crafted "Come To Me", which may just be my all-time favorite Bjork song with its delicate, melodic rhythms and gentle yet achy cooing.

I first became aware of Bjork Gudmundsottir when she was fronting the Sugarcubes, a new-wave dance-pop band out of Iceland. I was sufficiently intrigued by this to pay closer attention, if only because I'd never heard of an Icelandic new-wave dance-pop band before. I liked the Sugarcubes, though not overmuch; I felt they were not unlike a lot of what I was hearing on the radio at the time. When I heard that Bjork had split from the band and was now pursuing a solo career, I assumed she would release a couple of decent albums of forgettable dance-pop, then fade into obscurity.
Serves me right for making assumptions. The album she released, the appropriately-titled Debut, turned out to be one of the best albums released in 1993, a strong, energetic collection of songs, full of emotional colors and shadings, showing off Bjork's vocal, lyrical, and musical versatility to powerful advantage. It began an impressive solo career that continues to this day, and shows no signs of slowing down. This is one of the albums that showed me there's more to music than straight-ahead four-to-the-floor rock and roll, and it's one of the few albums from that era that I still listen to regularly.

If one word can sum up Bjork's Debut. The word breathtaking comes to mind. Never have I popped into my CD player an album that I can play from end to end and feel the same exact exhilarating thrill even after what must be the 1500th time I've played it!It's a perfect recording from start to finish. Absolutely no filler in this one. Bjork uses her amazing voice, her flawless sense of rhythm & her creative sense of genius to sheer perfection. Conjuring up a deliciously eclectic mixture of sounds guided along by the punky pixie's unique character & charms this CD boasts something for everyone. From the pulsating house beat of "Big Time Sensuality" to the exotic tropical beats of the powerful & moving "Aeroplane". From the Bacharachesque feel of the lilting "Venus As A Boy", the fierce Techno throb of "Violently Happy" to the omnious dramatic haunting single "Human Behaviour" (Quite possibly the finest single ever made, there are few artists who can conjure up enough diverse sound to appeal to the wide range of folks one can imagine getting into this album. Bjork is one of music's great little treasures & her's is a voice we are lucky to have!

Format: Audio CD
Bjork's first solo CD is terrific and a great preview of her later brilliance. As with some of her later work, the CD was produced primarily by Nelle Hooper (who later also worked with Madonna). Compared to her later CDs, which are more multi-layered, "Debut" sounds a little bit thin and poppy, but it's still extremely worthwhile for Bjork fans. You probably know the two hits, "Human Behaviour" and "Big Time Sensuality," but several of the other songs are just as good. "Venus as a Boy" is a beautiful song with strings and one of the most lush sounds of her early songs, and it will probably appeal to fans of "Vespertine." "The Anchor Song" is the only song she produced by herself and it's terrific. Overall, a highly recommended CD from a talented artist.

How often can it be said of a performer that her first solo work surpasses everything she did with her former group? I've been a Sugarcubes fan since their SNL performance in '87 or so, but upon first hearing _Human Behavior_ I realized that Bjork was capable of infinitely more on her own. As the summary says, this is unquestionably one of the five best "alternative" albums of the 1990s.
