    Ooh so Pagan Poetry was known as Blueprint in the early days.

    Pagan Poetry might be my favorite Bjork song.

    The "I love him/She loves him" part = chills every damn time.

    So, I'm in Iceland right now and found a record store that was selling Vespertine on vinyl and I don't have a turntable but some day I will. And I was looking at the cover, and something I just noticed is that the last track is written as "Unisona". Never heard of this typo, though I think it's just on the vinyl edition.
    When he woke up, the dinosaur was still there.

    My vinyl copy is the same. I think it's a misprint in the first edition.

    Just listened to this for the first time in awhile, so. good. I wonder if she'll ever return to these heights of production and composition.

    Vespertine is my favourite Bjork record, and the last one I truly loved.

    She had just fallen in love with Matthew Barney then. She was young and had more personal things to say. I don't think we can expect a similar sense of intimacy from her in her future projects but at least musically she keeps exploring and experimenting. Then again, who knows.

    And now in front of everybody I would like to eat my own words.

    Turns out the new record is a follow up to Vespertine after all. Sorry you had to suffer for it Bjork, but the world wins when you make good music. #sorrynotsorry

    Vespertine and Selmasongs are the PEAK of her brilliant perfection, for me. I never tire of these songs, the stark beauty... and that tour was incredible.

    This has got to be her best, most intricately produced record by far. It blows me away. I spent today listening to her first four records and while Post and Homogenic both definitely have their highlights, Vespertine is just that more amazing. Major
