Björk – Vespertine (2001)

Vespertine is another classic in the original run of stunning Björk albums, and a welcome return to form after the miss that was Selmasongs (unsure if that counts as canon, being a soundtrack album). Vespertine is looser, much more abstract and flowing than Homogenic that came before it, and I suppose you could say that initially it suffers, lacking direction, however this formula turns out to really work well for Björk, and many of the records that followed would employ this method of songwriting. Vespertine is considered a must by many Björk fans, but I’m not super hot on it myself. Its great, but its not incredible. What a terrible thing!
