Björk – Vulnicura (2015)

I remember this record coming out as if it was yesterday. It marked a turn in direction for Björk, who I understand was going through a lot of personal stuff at the time. Not only is the tone and content darker, the songs are impenetrable and sprawling. Björk has released plenty of difficult or challenging records, but this album is almost painful an experience when listening from start to finish. I guess in some regards that is kind of the point, where the venom being extracted slowly and difficultly is in its own way a healing process. However that by no means makes it an easy experience for the listener. I think this is the most difficult and impenetrable Björk album to date.
