Let me first start this with this disclaimer — I’m not a die-hard Bjork fan, but I do appreciate her in doses and I respect her as an artist. And like most tenured artists, I find her first (three) albums to be her best. Always a fan of not writing pop tunes, Bjork continues her tradition of straying from tried-and-true song structure with her latest release – Vulnicura.
Out of the ten songs on the album only two have a legitimate chorus. However, this doesn’t hinder Vulnicura from being a really good album. In fact, it’s Bjorks best music release in years! Working with producer Arca (who has collaborated with artists such as FKA Twigs, and Kanye West) and breaking from her long time love interest Matthew Barney seems to have provided a well of inspiration that fueled this album.
Go give it a listen! Vulnicura is a available for digital download and (old-school) physical CD.
