Bjork – Post
Out of stock
What our staff has to say: “I’m convinced you can’t stop listening to Post from the second you hear the ‘Army of Me’ bassline, which starts at 0:03. Swooning strings, club-inspired tracks, intimate to epic, Post is the perfect hinge between Debut and Homogenic. Pure art pop perfection.” – Hannah
After Debut’s success, the pressure was on Björk to surpass that album’s creative, tantalizing electronic pop. She more than delivered with 1995’s Post; from the menacing, industrial-tinged opener, Army of Me, it’s clear that this album is not simply Debut redux. The songs’ production and arrangements – especially those of the epic, modern fairy tale Isobel – all aim for, and accomplish, more. Post also features Debut producer Nellee Hooper, 808 State’s Graham Massey, Howie B, and Tricky, who help Bjork incorporate a spectrum of electronic and orchestral styles into songs like Hyperballad, which sounds like a love song penned by Aphex Twin. Meanwhile, the bristling beats on the volatile, sensual Enjoy and the fragile, weightless ballad Possibly Maybe nod to trip-hop without being overwhelmed by it.
