Björk Guðmundsdóttir. Авторы текста и музыки. Marius de Vries, Nellee Hooper, Björk, Sigurjón Birgir Sigurðsson.

Björk is the only studio album by Icelandic singer Björk Guðmundsdóttir as a child singer, released on 18 December 1977 by Fálkinn. In 1976, Björk appeared on Icelandic radio singing "I Love to Love" through the music school she attended, which led her to a record deal and the release, with the help of stepfather Sævar, of her first solo album in 1977.

Enjoyed: A Tribute to Björk's Post, sometimes referred to as Stereogum Presents. Enjoyed: A Tribute to Björk's Post, is a tribute album by various artists, released by Stereogum in 2008. The compilation album contains cover versions of all eleven tracks from Björk's album Post, originally released in 1995, plus an alternate take of "It's Oh So Quiet"

1995 studio album by Björk. Björk released her previous studio album Debut in 1993, on One Little Indian Records. A main element of Debut's sound was its incorporation of dance music, reflecting the contemporary styles of England's underground club culture, with which Björk had established close ties-as reflected in the remixes of the Debut and Post eras, and her romantic pairings with electronic musicians.

Post is the second studio album by Icelandic recording artist Björk, released on 13 June 1995 in the United Kingdom by One Little Indian and in the United States by Elektra Entertainment. Whereas Björk's previous album Debut (1993) was produced almost entirely by Nellee Hooper, Björk produced Post with collaborators including Hooper, 808 State's Graham Massey, and former Massive Attack member Tricky.

Listen free to Björk – Post (Army of Me, Hyperballad and more). I felt the album was the other half of Debut, so it made sense to call it Post - before and after kinda thing. I was very aware of it at the time that I needed to be musically promiscuous and have almost every song different mood/style and so on. The picture on the cover is me on Piccadilly Circus (Times Square of London) too excited, too many things, Bright Lights Big City kinda thing, and me eager to consume. So my musical heart was scattered at the time and I wanted the album to show that

Post is already more complex and more ambitious than its predecessor. It's mostly a collection of songs that Björk wrote after she moved to England, and the result is a bit more eclectic. As the singer herself pointed out later, it's probably hard that anyone would dislike this, considering it's so variegated. I think her later albums are more expressively detailed, more like she lays her heart bare to those who listen. Her latest music is more mature - and I should say, less catchy and poppy than this. Post is about her fresh new relationship with urban life, so it completely makes sense that it is very unpredictable as a whole. Starting from Army of Me, one of the darkest and most macho songs she's ever written - but also one of the least serious ones, maybe - we immediately go into the bright and adventurous orchestral electro theme of Hyperballad, to then switch to a mindblowing soft minimal, animistic chant reminding us that nature is at the root of everything, humans included. The surprises are not finished: we get to some crazy, polarized, explosive, loud swing jazz interpretation of "It's Oh So Quiet". Then the album peaks with a track which brims with inner conflict: the agitated, eager, gasping beats, and her voice is on the verge of eruption, so excited that she growls. She would like to say that she only loves Iceland, but London is a whole different world there for her to explore. Such a genius track. The atmosphere dies down with the sobering vibes of You've Been Flirting Again, and side one ends. The second half starts off with Isobel and its cinematic string arrangement, its hot-blooded beats and a cradling melody, snapping us out of our excessive use of logic, for us to find balance between magic and science. Possibly Maybe conveys exactly what you'd expect, a stumbling air of uncertainty, but also a sense of allure, and so accurately at that. At the same time it evolves into a sense of broken expectations and being desperate, in fact it tells a story with a tragic ending. We then go back to a sparking mood and into the playful nu-jazz vibes of I Miss You, where she delivers some goosebumps inducing voice projections. One more unexpected detour: we go into an enchanted ambient song, originally recorded inside a cave full of bats. "This is really dangerous", she sings, fluttering about through high tides of darkness. Then it all concludes itself with the velvety feel of Headphones, celebrating music as a pure, raw instinctive force.All in all, this is a solid step forward from Debut, partially because a lot more people were involved in the making of her second album. Overall slightly less strong than most of her later music, but it's still nowadays the most wacky work she's done, from that point onwards she would delve more and more into concept albums, much to the dismay of those who wanted her to stay catchy just like that.My rating: 9 out of 10
So after being super excited after Dabut, I was really curious to where Bjork would go next and what new ideas and sounds she would deliver. so now here we are with her follow up, Post. already, you can hear a more cohesive theme and a more consistent sound. strangely enough though, it's a wide variety of different emotions. Like it's constantly trying to be inconsistent but doing it in a way that doesn't sound out of place. which sounds ridiculous, I know. But she mastered it beautifully. all the songs seem to compliment each other beautifully. take for example the songs "You've Been Flirting Again" and "Isobel". One song prepares you while at the same time stays it's own masterpiece and then really explodes you with emotion on the next song. there are some beautiful ballads too. Like on the song "Hyperballad". (haha, you see what i did there?????) the song "Possibly Maybe" too. these two are easily the best songs on the album, in my opinion. I love the raw sadness and frustration in her voice in these songs. her delivery is second to none and you can really feel the way she wants you to feel. she's such a master at writing these incredibly sad yet beautiful pieced of music. almost like she's desperately trying to break the very fabric of existence time and reality with her voice and emotions. what can I say, she's amazing. plain and simple even though I do have a few problems with some songs, like maybe being a little bit repetitive like on the songs "Army of me" or Being to in your face like on "It's Oh So Quiet" it's still what makes her unique. and it's never really enough to hurt the album too drastically. she's quickly becoming one of my favorites and only makes me want to dive even deeper into this artist. I'm really curious to where she goes from here.
this is one of the best fucking albums ever. it's musically diverse without being exhausting, it's manic. there are moments of simple beauty (you've been flirting again, cover me), there are moments of empowerment and intensity (enjoy, army of me), there are philosophical and existential moments that really make you think (hyperballad, the modern things), and of course a retreat into classic swing territory (it's oh so quiet). i would say this is also the best album to get into björk with. it really has a bit of everything and it immediately proves the legitimacy of her status as a musical legend!
