New Bjork record!


#141

Arca’s production is wonderful! It’s sparse, delicate and reveals something new with each listen.


#142

I hope you all like flutes!
Fucking loads of flutes!
And animal noises


#143

i actually do love flutes


#144

Then this is the album for you!


#145

Didn’t even know she’d been playing the flute since she was a bairn.


#146

Reading all the reviews, i’m getting the distinct feeling Utopia is going to be another Björk album with a whole bunch of interestingly made, but completely unmemorable music on it.


#147

Gee you think?!


#148

Sorry that was a bit harsh


#149

You think?


#150

:smiley: excellent implosion there


#151

Pretty much my thoughts as I was listening to it. Bjork fans will love it - Bjork haters will hate it - It will change absolutely no-one’s mind about her or her music.


#152

Not exactly a shocking outcome for a musician who has been around for over 20 years


#153

To be fair, a lot of her recent albums have been pretty divisive amongst her fanbase. I can see this one being generally agreed upon as ‘one of the good ones’ though.


#154

Are you guys actually listening to the album somewhere? Not showing up on Spotify for me yet.


#155

nah i guess press copies are out. out tomorrow for us mere mortals.


#156

I’ve not disliked anything she’s put out over the last 10 years, but equally I haven’t LOVED anything she’s done in that time period either. Vespertine will always be my favourite, but I still loved Medulla, and even Volta had some great moments on it. But Biophilia onwards, it still seems to me that something I used to connect with in her music has been lost.


#157

ah I see.


#158

believe it has leaked, so is obtainable by illegal means


#159

i’ll wait for lossless :nerd_face:


#160

The Independent gave it one star - doh!
