Re: Medulla new [re: Tristan]  

Medulla was my first exposation to Bjork and I've loved her ever since.
Medulla also happens to be my favorite album by her.

Re: Bowie, Bjork & Pablo new [re: Tristan]  

In reply to:

I would prefer Bjork to get busy with her own project.


I whole album would not work but a collaboration could be awesome. just imagine both anarchic voices, she domoinationg the higher notes, he grumbling in the lower part. though I would still prefer a Tom Waits/Björk collaboration...

Conerning Medulla - I liked the attempt but in some parts it just sounds too much like a musical art class in evening school. I prefer the single versions of the released songs. Making pop-music is always a compromise between creating something new and creating something which is listenable. the art is to get both. to use ones full artistic control just to release something which hasn't been done before, because nobody would buy it without the big name on the cover is not really innovative.

However - there are some cool tracks on it which work perfectly on the two different levels. and also I like her philosophy of being the anti-madonna which proves that female artists could be more than dancing pairs of titts.


Come and buy my tanks

I say we use brute force and drag him out of Isolar Towers screaming and kicking, I'll grab the ankles, you grab the wrists, Electric Ladyland here we come


as a matter of fact I will be in NYC Soho grand in May, about 5 blocks from where he lives. I will surely stroll by his appartment building just in case.

Utter rubbish. I can understand how it is an album to divide up the fans but it is certainly a very focussed and innovative work by one of the best voices in the world. Hardly losing the plot, perhaps she just lost you?? Have another listen.


Ok OK cool off everyone, I wound up on a Bjork board or what???
You're right she's lost me. By the way my 5 year old daughter is a Bjork fan, that should level things up with me? She sings Joga and the song right after , I forgot the name. Every morning when we drive to school!! Next weekend I will show her Bjork videos, I have the DVD compilation, I even bought her biography. so you see I'm not hostile towards her, it's a bit like when Bowie came out with Earthling, he lost me temporarely.

Re: "I've met him, remember" new [re: sonofsilence]  

We're not talking "another day in paradise" crap. We're talking Lady Grinning Soul, Wild is the wind, Win, Slip Away,
side 2 of low, the motel, 5:15 Angels, the wedding, America etc.
Bowie declared rock a "toothless old woman" in 1975, and now she's 31 years older. His more recent "ballads" have been sucessful than the "rockers", that's all I'm saying. One of the more spine tingling moments (for me, anyway) on the Reality tour was the minimal "Loving the Alien". Same goes with his "Life On Mars"at fashion rocks with only Garson.
Rockers do not showcase his phenomenal voice and now is the point in his career to do exactly that, out of the standerd rock format, but without the schmaltz-faux-sinatra garbage that other maturing (i.e Rod Stewart, et. al) are resorting to.

WOW! Lucky you be sure to take a photo, wouldn't it be fab if you were to see him.

BTW, listen out for any musical notes, as you pass his residence

Re: Medulla new [re: kalamazoo]  

Good and even great art confounds. If you put on Medulla and expected Debut, you've missed a big part of the journey.
Comparatively,it's the same musical distance from Hunky Dory to Low. Great artists, from Picasso to Bjork, weren't/aren't afraid stray from the pack.

Re: Medulla new [re: Tristan]  

I've seen all of them!
My best friend loves her like I love Bowie!
So of course he converted me. I could name all th Bjork albums, most songs on the albums, etc.
Just to show you what kind of a fan I am...
I'm traveling to San Fransisco in June to see Drawing Restraint 9 and be there when Mathew Barney will be there! It will be exciting!

Lucky you! It's possible you'll see Bjork if Barney is there.
