Björk: Biophilia Live

As Björk’s live shows become increasingly sprawling in their design and execution, less attention seems to be paid on the arrangements and the dynamics of her songs – or rather, their potential to be reworked into something entirely new onstage.

Music

Björk: Vulnicura (Take 1)

Björk's devastating ninth album Vulnicura, brutally chronicles the dissolution of her relationship with longtime partner, avant-garde NY filmmaker and sculptor Matthew Barney.

Björk: Vulnicura (Take 2)

By escaping from her grandiose visions to dwell in her own head, Björk has made a stark and overwhelming record that proves she still has an abundance of ideas to explore, even at a detriment to herself.

Björk: Medulla

With all of Medulla's faults (and it has its faults), there are enough moments of jaw-dropping inventiveness that a single review is limited in how effective its critique can be.

Björk: Homogenic Live

Live Homogenic fails to share any new insights into the inner workings of Björk and her live experience, telling us little more than what we already learned with the release of its parent album seven years ago.
