Format: MP3 Music
This is a relationship breakup album, infused with heartache, and will surely reduce some to tears. I was taken aback by how emotional this record is at its high points, to the extent where it seems both thrilling and draining at times. Musically, strings and all sorts of electronics provide a riveting backdrop for Bjork's entrancing voice. It's written chronologically, starting nine months before her split with Matthew Barney.

`Stonemilker' opens with beautiful, gloriously elegiac strings. The lyrics contain a warning of what's to come, however, with Bjork pleading for openness: "show some emotion", "I wish to synchronise our feelings". She ponders whether one person can remain open while another is "shut" but the music remains the most immediate and hopeful sounding that it will ever get on the album. On another record, it could be the optimistic closer.

Here it leads into `Lionsong', with more strings and Bjork's voice carrying a gorgeous melody, the lyrics conveying more doubt: "maybe he will come out of this loving me, maybe he won't". The first subdued beats arrive, it moves around, the song returning to the main theme. Bjork seems to accept being confused: "sign of maturity, to be stuck in complexity", before being resigned at the end: "somehow I'm not too bothered, I'd just like to know".

`History of Touches', opens with fragmented synths and "I wake you up in the middle of the night to express my love for you" (never a good sign!). She says "I wake you up feeling this is our last time together" and seems to be mentally summarising the relationship. Musically though, this three minute interlude breaks the melodic flow completely. On first listen this was jarring but on reflection probably necessary before starting on the next track.

Billed as Bjork's "break-up record", "Vulnicura" leaves little to speculate. The cover image of Bjork with a gaping chest wound, provides a visual representation of the album's thematology. As for the curious title, when broken down, the latin words "vulnus" and "cura" respectively translate to "injury" and "healing". Though hardly a novel concept, Bjork takes this personal and introspective matter, and skillfully renders it universal, by creating an album in which to find solace, despite its heartbreaking content. After a long period of philosophical (and often pretty inaccessible) albums, she returns with the most human-centered album of her career, which, to those familiar with her work, is some kind of apocalypse. Especially, when considering that the record leaked, and was rush-released, a fact that seems to have done Bjork an inadvertent service, thus, allowing listeners to focus purely on the actual material. The album's 9 songs, chronicling the story of a relationship, are almost inextricably linked with one another. However, special mention has to be made for the album's glorious centrepiece, "Black lake", and the dramatic opener "Stonemilker". Reaching further than ever before, with "Vulnicura", Bjork proves that she is a phenomenal artist: wacky, weird, wondrous, wonderful.

This is the best Album since Vespertine hands down. It is still a little more avante-garde to be completely main stream, but I don't care about that. It's is absolutely mesmerizing. The strings remind me of a lot of Homogenic, but it's totally different. Once I learned about the story was behind the songs, the album sounded totally different to me. Beware as the album can be depressing but it's good to concentrate on the positives towards the end of the album- the survival of the break-up and a chance to move forward- be brand new. I am sure she's been throwing a lot of cutlery off cliffs lately. I also have to mention that the album art is so bad to the bone that I am going to have to buy the CD now. Might I suggest you do the same. :-)

BOOM! Bjork just suprised us with her follow-up to Biophilia. She announced her album over the weekend and then it leaked in full a day later and then we get it officially released today. I've literally only listened to the album twice and as any Bjork fans will tell you, two listens is not enough to take in the breadth of genius on a Bjork album. With that said, upon 2 listens, I am happy to report that Bjork has returned with one of her most elegant, lush, albums since Vespertine. PHEW! Thanks for this fabulous return to form.

The Best:
Stone Milker is a grand beautiful opener and excited for it to be part of the Bjork music catalogue.
Lion Song continues with the grandness of Stone Milker and while there isnt any new territory here, it takes one back to the Homogenic/Vespertine days.
Family continues with the homogenic/verspertine wails and the drum n bassy'esque sound. There is no catchy chorus to latch on to with this track but where it lacks in catchiness, it makes up for in its haunting energy.

The Good:
History of Touches goes back to the feeling of the last album except the instruments are much more soothing.
Black Lake is a 10 minute track that increases in intensity as the song builds. Very similar again to the vibe of the last album. Pullls at the heart strings.
Atom Dance is the collabo with Antony. Bjork owns the first 4-5 minutes of the track and then Antony kicks in. His unique vocals have been warped so they sounds even more unique. The song then goes into them singing in unison which is the most enjoyable part of this 8 minute track. She wails, he wails, the strings, the drums kicking....emotionally intense.

The Unique:
NotGet confuses me alittle.
