The word on...Biophilia

"Perhaps 'Biophilia' the 'app album' comes across like a pretentious distraction, while 'Biophilia' the 'Björk album' stands with the best of them." tinymixtapes.com



"Both the most conventional and unconventional effort on Björk's resume... it plays best straight through its 10-song cycle, from the tranquil calm of 'Moon' down to the soft plucks on the aptly-titled 'gravity harps' that adorn album closer 'Solstice'." consequenceofsound.net

"As minimally executed as it is maximally conceived, 'Biophilia' doesn't sculpt emptiness; it swims in it. By the disc's end—and in spite of frequent flashes of celestial, awe-dropping grace—all that space accumulates to form an unfocused, almost suffocating absence of song." avclub.com
