>>61761523 the majority of her 90s/early 2000s output shows her sort of curious and inquisitive temperament, as well as many of her songs dealing with themes of trying to understand human nature and whatnot there's also this obsessive desire to experiment with new sounds and ideas which is why we have albums like medulla and why homogenic and vespertine sound entirely different from one another etc etc the fact that she's so obsessed with trying new things showcases an artist who's young and filled with exciting new ideas and so excited and desperate to get all of these new ideas out that she can barely breathe obviously the end result is that we see a lot of exciting ideas, but equally because she's so filled with energy and excitement, a lot of these projects lack any real focus or cohesion, and so while they do still stand the test of time to a point, there are fairly obvious cracks and inconsistencies in most of these records that detract from them fast forward to 2012 and we've got a much calmer, more mature and subdued bjork who's long passed her artistic prime and so isn't so much bursting with new ideas, meaning she's able to take all that she's learned from experimenting with all the different sounds she's learned and sit down and create a record that's calm and focused and flawlessly cohesive, and while it might not have the highs of an album like homogenic or medulla, it doesn't have any of their lows or flaws either
sorry for rambling but that's why it's my favourite bork album
>>61761669 Some fans prefer the calmer, more mature and subdued Björk, I get that. Each to their own. Personally I find the "Homogenic, Vespertine Björk" 10 times more exciting despite it's occasional flaws.
Do you think Vulnicura might be a new chapter for her?
>>61761890 i mean those earlier albums are definitely more exciting but for me personally having listened to all of them dozens of times each, the excitement's kinda worn off and all i really see is the inconsistencies i didn't like vulnicura at all because the change feels so drastic that i kinda doubt its sincerity, like all of a sudden this artist who's been synonymous with warmth and happiness and positive energy decides to go all sad on us, it just doesn't sound right to me
>>61762057 A lot of my favorite albums have worn off too after listening to them dozens of times. This doesn't make me love them any less however. Vulnicura is actually very sincere. She probably went through some really hard times after her divorce. If Vulnicura was just like her older records then she wouldn't be sincere.
