    I love everything about the Homogenic-era. It's all so tight, cohesive, and unique. When I was in Architecture school at Auburn, someone made a project inspired by this album, and it was spot-on. You could just look at it and tell that it was somehow related to the Homogenic album.

    I used to play "All Is Full Of Love" from the Stigmata soundtrack on repeat back in college. And the video is so weird and warm at the same time.

    It's definitely my favorite Bjork album!

    I love this album so much! The videos are fabulous, especially "Bachelorette," which I think is just so clever and creative. "Five Years" is definitely a favorite song too. I love how she's angry in it, since a lot of her songs are more uplifting or serene.

    Also, I saw the other thread, and "Alarm Call" is amazing and anyone to suggest otherwise is wrong. So that basically ends that discussion.

    Why oh why did she include THAT version of "Immature" here? It's the only bad thing about Homogenic. There's this other version, the one that appeared on Family Tree, that would've work better than the album version.
    And this era has the best b-sides. "Sod off" kicks ass.

    I'm sorry but it's been recently discovered and proven by various studies that Alarm Call is actually very bad, and since this is now common knowledge, THAT ends the discussion. Most studies revealed that the goodness of Homogenic hid a layer of pus not unlike under a teenager's skin. And thus the pus formed secretly near the end of the album as a kind of pimple labeled "Alarm Call". Defense rests.

    Whatever. It doesn't scare me at all.
    Sometimes I think the so-called "experts" actually are experts.

    Homogenic is her most definitive, solid album. It hits me like a brick.

    It's my favourite too. No chaff.

    Unravel came on random on my ipod while driving home today, and it's up there in at the top of my favourite Björk songs I think. Such a beautiful melody.

    I love both versions of Immature. I wish there was an alternate version of like, every single Bjork song.
