Homogenic is probably where a lot of people start cos it's the easiest to like first listen from what I gather but once you get used to the sounds fucking hit up Vespertine next. It is bloody art.

I really love Post as well.

 

All is full of love is. the. best. song. ever.

 

It's breath taking.

Live, it's just soul taking.

 

I actually started with Homogenic after Biophilia because I was reading an article on Stereogum that was listing her albums from worst to best. 

It listed Biophilia as the worst, which I find really hard to believe.. but anyway, it said Homogenic was the best & I've read a lot of good stuff on the internet about it anyway, so I figured I'd start there. 

 

From Homogenic, I really loved Joga and Unravel. Pluto is really good too, as is All Is Full of Love. They're all great honestly, though the only ones that didn't stick with me as much were All Neon Like, Immature, and Alarm Call.

Biophilia is what got me wanting to look into her more though, I really think it's a great album. Crystalline was the first song of hers I listened to, and it blew me away. It's one of my favorites, along with Thunderbolt.

Ohhh I see. Yes Unravel is one of my top fav songs of Bjorks tbh. If you like Crystalline can I suggest Aurora and Oceania maybe?

 

Bjorks best songs imo are:

1. All is full of love by far

2. Possibly Maybe

3 Pagan poetry

4. unravel

5. Aurora/ Oceania

6. violently Happy

7. Joga

8. Bachelorette 

9. Its not up to you

10. Isobel

 

Tbh just everything she does is gold

Thank you for the suggestions!! I'm actually stuck on which album to listen to next, so since you suggested Aurora and Oceania, I'll listen to Vespertine next, then Medulla. :)

Do you ever just love a song and everything about it, and then discover months later what the lyrics are (because you had never paid attention before) and then fucking cry because they are so beautiful and elegant and RELEVANT????? Well yeah. That's Unravel for me. Probably my favorite Bjork song entirely.

I honestly think Volta is like the worst place to start for most people. I'd suggest listening to Post, Vespertine, or Homogenic to get started.

Wow maybe I need to check out Selmasongs since you gave it as good of a rating as Biophilic lol. I have ignored it up until now!

And I haven't listened to any of Drawing Restraint #9 other than "Storm", which I did like. Also haven't listened to Medúlla....

You don't know HOW STUPID I feel now for writting "Dancer in the Dark" instead of "Selmasongs"  :icant:  :icant:  :icant:

Give it a shot :D It's cool, but first watch the movie, ok? :)

Medúlla is a great album, but it falls into the same category as Volta, DR9 and Biophilia, none of them are easy for the ear or mainstream.

Haha it's okay, I knew what you meant ;)

And the thing is that I LOVEEE Biophilia, so maybe I would feel the same about Medúlla!

The only track on Biophilia I don't really love is "Sacrifice"... I need to give it another listen

Biophilia is amazing, but I feel like she has made better.

 

Check the albums you haven't listen to yet :D

Will do! I actually just listened through a hunk of Medúlla and wow it's sooo weird lol... I mean I don't hate it, but I'm not sure how I feel about the whole acapella thing tbqh. Like I love Björk's vocals layered over beautiful instrumentation, and she took away half of that on Medúlla.
