Over the years, the packaging of Björk's albums grew famously, and increasingly, elaborate, but Biophilia is the first Björk project where the set of songs isn’t the complete package. Designed as a suite of interactive iPad and iPhone apps that explore humanity’s relationships with sound and the universe, the album’s concept was so grand that it began as a musical house and ended up including scientists, engineers, video game designers, and film directors among Björk's collaborators. Biophilia's boldest innovations are in its presentation rather than in the actual music, which is surprisingly subtle and intimate given the concept’s immense scope, but the perfect size to be cradled in a lap or palm. Björk recorded parts of the album on an iPad, and these songs retain that intimacy. They also recall Vespertine, which was made primarily on a laptop and also kept the closeness of its creation, as well as Homogenic's percussive onslaughts, particularly on the literally volcanic “Mutual Core.” Minus the project’s other layers, Biophilia sometimes feels like a soundtrack; songs such as the album-opening “Moon” are so soft and delicate that they take a while to reveal themselves without their corresponding visuals. But just because the music is only one part of the Biophilia experience doesn’t mean it’s unsatisfying. Björk embodies each song’s musical, scientific, and emotional concepts fully and cleverly: “Crystalline”’s insistent repetition captures mineral formations shooting out of the ground, especially when drum’n’bass beats explode halfway through the song. Biophilia's educational side is never boring, in part because Björk relates bigger phenomena to easily understood, and often tangible, occurrences; the earth is tilted on its axis like a human heart, and DNA is an “everlasting necklace.” The gorgeous “Virus” expresses its multiplying phrases in a love song with facts and emotions in perfect harmony: “Like a virus needs a body/As soft tissue feeds on blood/Someday I’ll find you/The urge is here.” However, the most exciting thing about Biophilia is how it expresses the cycle of discovery and wonder. Knowledge and mystery don’t have to be enemies: on “Cosmogony,” science and spirituality hold hands and creation myths sit next to facts. Björk holds the sheer magnitude of the album together with repeated motifs -- moons, stars, pearls, hearts, hands, and above all generosity -- that reflect Biophilia's layered meanings of love, life, and love of life. The album even completes an orbit with “Solstice" -- which features gravity harps built especially for this project (the CD version of the album also features three bonus tracks, including the hurtling, previously unreleased “Nattura”). Expectations run high whenever Björk announces a new album: how will she top herself? Biophilia is easily her most ambitious project as a whole, but its music is more about completion than competition, even against herself. Educational and emotional in a uniquely approachable way, these songs are a lovely part of a bigger picture. © Heather Phares /TiVo

Björk riesce ancora ad armonizzare concetti teoricamente opposti in Volta, un lavoro audace ma meditativo, delicato ma potente, accessibile ma d'avanguardia. L'album raggiunge l'equilibrio perfetto tra la vitalità del suo materiale più pop degli anni '90 e i suoi progetti sperimentali degli anni 2000. © Heather Phares /TiVo

Hi-Res
Inquietante corpo a corpo tra tecnologie avanzate e sensazioni organiche addirittura carnali, Vulnicura resuscita la Björk di Homogenic e di Vespertine. Una Björk che raramente si è messa così tanto a nudo: la sua rottura con il cameraman e chirurgo plastico Matthew Barney è al centro di questo album intenso del 2015, tanto nei testi quanto nelle architetture musicali. Per aiutarla nel suo lavoro, l’islandese si è circondata di due compari della sfera elettronica: l’inglese Bobby Krlic alias The Haxan Cloa e soprattutto il giovane venezuelano Alejandro Ghersi alias Arca. Quest’ultimo è stato fondamentale per Utopia, che viene pubblicato nell’autunno del 2017. Mentre per Vulnicura si era unito a Björk quando le canzoni era state già scritte, questa volta ha lavorato con lei dall’inizio del progetto, tanto che in tutte le interviste Björk non smette di dichiarare che il disco è stato interamente ideato in due. Come con l’universo di Actress o di Oneohtrix Point Never, Arca ha sempre saputo mescolare gli angoli remoti più cerebrali della musica elettronica e quelli più fisiologici. Insomma, delle argomentazioni desiderate per girovagare sul pianeta Björk. Girovagare. È così che ci lasciamo portare da Utopia. Presi per mano dalla voce sempre unica della padrona di casa, qui attraversiamo delle molteplici trame, talvolta fitte e dense (Arisen My Senses) ma anche eteree come non mai (Blissing Me, Utopia). È quindi in queste composizioni meno magniloquenti che Björk convince maggiormente. Ma Arca non è l’unico elemento chiave di questo decimo album discografico. L’islandese ha tirato fuori la sua arma preferita che on la lascia da quando ha l’età di 5 anni: il flauto! È un filo conduttore di un opera caratterizzata da un folle onirismo ma che non si può domare in un solo ascolto. Björk Guðmundsdóttir non è Taylor Alison Swift e Utopia va guadagnato! © MD/Qobuz

Dopo Vulnicura Live del 2015, Björk torna in pista con un nuovo lavoro che spalanca le porte alla visionarietà. Utopia propone quattordici brani inediti e, come sempre, sonorità variegate, più tanta sperimentazione: elettrofolk, musica d’ambiente -- come quella del primo singolo estratto “The Gate” --, field recording dall’Amazzonia e uso massiccio di archi e strumenti a fiato, specialmente flauti. Il disco è prodotto insieme al venezuelano Alejandro Ghersi, in arte Arca, con il texano Eric Burton, alias Rabit. © TiVo

By the late '90s, Björk's playful, unique world view and singular voice became as confining as they were defining. With its surprising starkness and darkness, 1997's Homogenic shatters her "Icelandic pixie" image. Possibly inspired by her failed relationship with drum'n'bass kingpin Goldie, Björk sheds her more precious aspects, displaying more emotional depth than even her best previous work indicated. Her collaborators -- LFO's Mark Bell, Mark "Spike" Stent, and Post contributor Howie B -- help make this album not only her emotionally bravest work, but her most sonically adventurous as well. A seamless fusion of chilly strings (courtesy of the Icelandic String Octet), stuttering, abstract beats, and unique touches like accordion and glass harmonica, Homogenic alternates between dark, uncompromising songs such as the icy opener, "Hunter," and more soothing fare like the gently percolating "All Neon Like." The noisy, four-on-the-floor catharsis of "Pluto" and the raw vocals and abstract beats of "5 Years" and "Immature" reveal surprising amounts of anger, pain, and strength in the face of heartache. "I dare you to take me on," Björk challenges her lover in "5 Years," and wonders on "Immature," "How could I be so immature/To think he would replace/The missing elements in me?" "Bachelorette," a sweeping, brooding cousin to Post's "Isobel," is possibly Homogenic's saddest, most beautiful moment, giving filmic grandeur to a stormy relationship. Björk lets a little hope shine through on "Jòga," a moving song dedicated to her homeland and her best friend, and the reassuring finale, "All Is Full of Love." "Alarm Call"'s uplifting dance-pop seems out of place with the rest of the album, but as its title implies, Homogenic is her most holistic work. While it might not represent every side of Björk's music, Homogenic displays some of her most impressive heights. © Heather Phares /TiVo

A quattro anni dal precedente “Biophilia”, esce nel gennaio 2015 il nono album dell’eclettica cantautrice electro-folk islandese Bjork. L’uscita e’ stata anticipata a causa dei soliti problemi legati alla pirateria su internet che aveva gia’ reso disponibile il disco online. “Vulnicultura” comprende 9 brani, tra i quali il primo singolo “Stonemilker”, prodotti dalla stessa Bjork insieme a Arca e a The Haxan Cloak, e presenta un sound meno complesso rispetto agli album precedenti, interpretato da alcuni come un avvicinamento al pop. Tra gli ospiti del disco troviamo anche l’acclamato cantautore inglese Antony Hegarty. © TiVo

After Debut's success, the pressure was on Björk to surpass that album's creative, tantalizing electronic pop. She more than delivered with 1995's Post; from the menacing, industrial-tinged opener, "Army of Me," it's clear that this album is not simply Debut redux. The songs' production and arrangements -- especially those of the epic, modern fairy tale "Isobel" -- all aim for, and accomplish, more. Post also features Debut producer Nellee Hooper, 808 State's Graham Massey, Howie B, and Tricky, who help Björk incorporate a spectrum of electronic and orchestral styles into songs like "Hyperballad," which sounds like a love song penned by Aphex Twin. Meanwhile, the bristling beats on the volatile, sensual "Enjoy" and the fragile, weightless ballad "Possibly Maybe" nod to trip-hop without being overwhelmed by it. As on Debut, Björk finds new ways of expressing timeworn emotions like love, lust, and yearning in abstractly precise lyrics like "Since you went away/I'm wearing lipstick again/I suck my tongue in remembrance of you," from "Possibly Maybe." But Post's emotional peaks and valleys are more extreme than Debut's. "I Miss You"'s exuberance is so animated, it makes perfect sense that Ren & Stimpy's John Kricfalusi directed the song's video. Likewise, "It's Oh So Quiet" -- which eventually led to Björk's award-winning turn as Selma in Dancer in the Dark -- is so cartoonishly vibrant, it could have been arranged by Warner Bros. musical director Carl Stalling. Yet Björk sounds equally comfortable with an understated string section on "You've Been Flirting Again." "Headphones" ends the album on an experimental, hypnotic note, layering Björk's vocals over and over till they circle each other atop a bubbling, minimal beat. The work of a constantly changing artist, Post proves that as Björk moves toward more ambitious, complex music, she always surpasses herself. © Heather Phares /TiVo
