Bjork: Homogenic vs. Vespertine?

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 
Just wanted to get a feeling for what bjork fans out there find is the "better" album. I have a feeling most prefer homogenic simply because its groundbreaking, but there is something very sweet and melodic about vespertine and I feel its underrated.

Homogenic.

In 2004 Björk remarked "In the beginning you are like a sponge just soaking everything up. And then there is always a turning point, when you realise 'okay, thats it, I know what I'm going to do now', and you put on the blinders on and just march on until it's done. You can never choose when that moment will come, it just happens, I think on Vespertine I got a bit too clever for my own good- it was important for me to do something intellectual, more in your head -- but I wanted to do the opposite this time [referring to Medúlla], a totally compulsive, blood and muscle kind of album. I didnt want any rules this time. But then somehow it developed into an ever more disciplined idea than before."

I also feel that Homogenic was one her best releases and her solo album, Vespertine marked a radical change in Björk's style and exploration and was largely experimental. In many ways the album was a draft and helped establish a new direction and formative period in her music.

Cheers,

Verspertine is a nice album, but when I think about it - without looking - I can only remember a single track, which is "hidden place". I prefer Homogenic by far.

Homogenic is her best album without a doubt. Too bad she's not working with Mark Bell again, because he's the reason that album rules.

To add to the landslide, Homogenic.

Homogenic is a great album but I have been listening to Vespertine much more recently. So my vote goes to Vespertine.

I'll put my vote in for Vespertine as well. It just feels better. I think though that it may have something to do with the fact that this was the first solo work of hers I have heard, though I had heard a little Sugarcubes

I have since become a fan and even like Medulla even though I find it a bit jarring.

Homogenic #1, Vespertine #2. But they're fairly close, to me. Very different.
