Björk – Vulnicura (2015)

I’ll be the first to admit that, as a huge Björk fan since the late 1990s, I’ve been at a loss with her recent music: I adore her experimental, deeply passionate approach to music, but my appreciation of the songs themselves has plummeted, and I found “Vulnicura” entirely frustrating and chaotic. It’s very hard to get a sense of any melodies or lyrics in any song, as the unpolished and uncontrolled production swirls, bubbles and rises, constantly threatening to overwhelm the power of Björk’s vocals, resulting in the first Björk studio album I outright dislike. Perhaps in a few decades, “Vulnicura” will make more sense to me, but as it is, I just don’t get it.
