On record: Bjork Homogenic One Little Indian TPLP71CD
The album is apparently a kind of audio-synaesthetic impression of Bjork's return to her native Iceland, with the rhythm tracks designed to echo the cracking sounds made by thawing glaciers, etc. LFO's Mark Bell has programmed most of the beats and synth backdrops, and the restrained, elegantly energised results allow Bjork's lyrics to dominate the tracks - though these, too, seem more homogeneous.
Being Bjork, she brings new slants to bear,but fails to find the particularity of each song. Perhaps a couplet from the opening track, "Hunter", provides a clue: "I thought I could organise freedom," sings Bjork. "How Scandinavian of me."
