Biophilia is het zevende volledige studioablum van de experimentele IJslandse zangeres Björk. “Biophilia” betekent letterlijk “liefde voor het leven” en is de naam van een biologiehypothese die stelt dat er een instinctuele verbintenis bestaat tussen mens en natuur. Het album werd deels opgenomen op een iPad en ook uitgebracht als een reeks downloadbare apps. Biophilia is Björks eerste album van nieuw materiaal sinds het uit 2007 afkomstige, en voor een Grammy genomineerde, Volta. De single “Crystalline” ging het album al voor. © Jack Semmence /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

De platen van de IJslandse zangeres Björk weerspiegelen doorgaans wat er zich afspeelt in haar leven. Zo verwerkte ze op Vulnicura (2015) haar relatiebreuk maar laat ze op de opvolger Utopia (2017) horen de weg naar het licht weer te hebben teruggevonden. Utopia is Björks negende studioalbum en op de plaat werkt ze samen met de Venezolaanse producer Arca. © TiVo

In 2015 brengt de IJslandse zangeres Björk haar negende album Vulnicura uit. Na het verrassende app-album Biophilia uit 2011 laat het nieuwe album zich beluisteren als een klassiek Björk-album. Er zijn weinig verrassingen te vinden op deze plaat die om de verwerking van het einde van Björks relatie met kunstenaar Matthew Barney draait. Het neemt niet weg dat het album enkele prachtige songs herbergt, zoals "Black Lake", een tien minuten durend epos dat vele gemoedstoestanden oproept. En "Family" is een prachtig desolate song, die perfect aansluit bij het thema van de plaat. © 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
