Getting into Bjork


#1

My best friend and I have overlapping music tastes and mutual appreciation for many of the same bands with one big exception: He loves Bjork and what I’ve heard of her music just makes me shrug and think “how artistic, i guess…”.
Anyways, at my friend’s urging I’m giving her another chance to win me over. Where should I start? Make me love her.


#2

Bjerk, more like.


#3

I would recommend Vespertine, one of the greatest albums of the 21st century. If you don’t like that you have no soul.


#4

Vespertine is probs her ‘warmest’ and might be the most accessible (also my fav)
Homogenic if you’re more into the trip hoppy stuff


#5

Debut is full of bops


#6

Probably quicker to get the bjrain rather than the bjoach


#7

#8

I made a playlist a while back.

It’s perfect.


#9

This would be your best bet. Good playlist and you hear a mix of everything she does.


#10

Don’t forget Play Dead - greatest Bond theme that wasn’t:


#11

Wasn’t Bachelorette originally supposed to be a Bond theme too? Or is that an urban myth?


#12

I did not know that.


#13

The Sugarcubes. I like them far more than Björk solo really. Debut is my favourite solo album I guess.

I like Homogenic most but would probably recommend Debut/ Post more if you’re after more immediate stuff (still good though) or Vespertine for a bit more of an interesting listen


#16

Thanks everyone. I think I’ve been converted!


#17

I was just gonna say, tho: best Björk tune is this one

Just listen to Homogenic and Post. Verspertine is pretty great too. The rest I can leave.
