Artists who are worth their salt must grow. By that measure, Bjork is worth a lot of salt. She has yet to dissapoint me in that she refuses to stand still artistically. Yes, there is a definitive Bjork-ish-ness about her music, but I don't think she makes the mistake of making the same album over and over.
Her 1995 CD, Post, is a nice followup to 1993's Debut. In this album, some of the seeds she planted in Debut begin to mature, as she drifts farther from the mainstream and her Sugarcubes roots.
"Army of Me" I tired of rather quickly, but that's OK. It was the hit single after all, and typical of hits, it couldn't hold my attention long. Can't hold her responsible for that. "Possibly Maybe" on the other hand, which you've probably seen on MTV, I never tire of. There's a lot going on in that song, and the notes Bjork chooses are positively jazz inspired.
But I think the thing that hooked me on Post (which was my introduction to Bjork, by the way, in 1997) was the pure emotion that comes across in her music, and in her voice. "Hyperballad" is the one that really gets to me. The lyrics outline the story of a woman who walks to the edge of a cliff every morning, throws junk off, and contemplates suicide as she watches the items fall and strike the rocks below. The reason she indicates for this bizarre behaviour is that after that rather dismal start to her day, there's nowhere to go but up. Dark? Certainly. Sappy? Perhaps. But for whatever reason, I was emotionally affected by that song. But no matter the subject of the lyrics, it is Bjork's delivery that really sells the emotion, and what ultimately affects me. It's just nice that Hyperballad had something more to it lyrically.
There's plenty of good music on this one.

In 1993 Bjork released her debut album "Debut" and simultaneously created one of the most unique and original albums for years. The critics adored it and she was hard-pressed to deliver the goods on its follow-up. She more than delivered in 1995 with the masterpiece "Post." A darker and more mature album than its predecessor, Post is a wonderfully epic album that revived the music scene from a deadly overdose of dance garbage and manufactured pop. It couldn't have come along at a better time.
Not many artists wind up producing a second album that far surpasses their debut, but Bjork - once again - is clearly the key objection to this rule. With harder beats, more creative production and a wider perspective on the world, Bjork created a masterpiece that still sounds as fresh today as it did back in 1995. One can only imagine what was going through her mind as she recorded this album. Bjork not only changed the music scene in the 1990's with this classic album, she changed my own perceptions on music.
"Army Of Me" opens the album in grand style. This is a really good opener for an album, very loud, very brash and hectic. It starts off like an electronic crash, before sliding straight into a thumping bass and percussion. It's an extremely industrial song with mechanical styles and powerful vocals from Bjork. "Hyper-Ballad" is the first masterpiece of the album, and works superbly when juxtaposed next to the song it follows on from. Strings and electronic pulses sweep this song along and Bjork's lyrics about throwing things off cliffs are extremely visual and commanding. "The Modern Things" begins with computer-synthesized beats before exploding into a whirling concoction of chaotic layering of programmed beats.

This was my first introduction to the mysterious world of Bjork and is still my favorite. Aside from people's claims of it being post-pop or whatever, to me it's and adventurous mixture of triphop, string arrangements, curious electronics, and calm ambience. It can go from intense techno club journeys like "Army Of Me" and "Enjoy" (the latter being a lavish experiment and a particular fave of mine) to more meditating melodramas like "Cover Me", done to soft Asian instruments and such, or the last song which lulls you into sleep as the song's lyrics suggest. "It's So Quiet" is an amusing broadway cover and definitely worth checking out, but for my money nothing beats the best track on the entire album, "Isobel"...it's a spooky jungle-filled rainforest romp of bombastic music, which has Bjork relating her lust-filled tale of loving a mystified replica of herself. The distant whistling at the end is a nice touch. "Possibly Maybe" is one of the lighter meditative joints in the album, mixed with some Hungarian violins; "Hyper-Ballad" makes me feel like I'm jumping off a high cliff in the clouds, humming all the way down which matches the song's lyrics about suicide and a similar fantasy. And to think most suicidal music that drives people off cliffs is depressing, but not Bjork's. Her dwellings in love, desperation, etc. are always weird, upbeat, or uncategorizable. She is truly a unique heroine in modern day music.

I was inclined to get a little more personal when I thought about writing this review for Bjork's sophomore effort `Post'. It's simply too moving and inspiring to look at it from a neutral point of view. Until just a few months ago, I had no clue what I was missing not listening to Bjork. Out on a whim, I decided to watch a few of Bjork's videos online, and I was almost immediately intrigued and hooked. Her raspy strong vocals and fantastic musical arrangements had so much emotion, power and conviction; I was completely stunned and moved. Within a month, I had purchased nearly all her albums and several singles. Now, I consider myself a true Bjork fan: one of those listeners who loves every single one of her tracks for one reason or another, and hears the beauty in every note the Icelandic singer belts out.

Bjork's previous album `Debut' was impressive. Despite it's originality or maybe because of it, critics (for the most part) agreed it was too experimental to be musically inspiring. However, after being eased into Bjork's style and uniqueness, critics and fans alike took to her follow-up `Post' with enthusiasm. It's no surprise: the album is more innovative, emotionally moving and contains more musical impact than `Debut'. I had no choice but to crank up the music real loud on my headphones when I popped this album in my CD player. There are so many songs that hit the listener hard here. It's difficult to single out only a few tracks; they are all divine. Having said that, here's a review of every song on `Post':

Army of Me: This is one of my favorite Bjork songs. Like many of her tunes, it took some time to grow on me. I love belting out this song when I'm irritated or upset. It's great for those emotional moments when you think you're going to burst.
