    Was this to me?? I do. Not all aspects of either album are what I would call pure pop, but plenty of those songs have very strong hooks and fall into pop music structure.

    Well, she is a popular artist.

    I will say this. Volta was a very important album for me.. my username and all that and even more important was Biophilia. It was a self-help kind of record. I know it had more gimmicks than a flying trapeze show on the outside but when I heard those lyrics for the first time it was just very needed again.

    Moon: Best way to start-a-new is to fail miserably. Fail at loving and fail at giving. Fail at creating a flow then realign the whole WTF? How did she know I needed to hear that right then and there lol. Have we ever had an artist whose mother tongue was not English that knew all the ways to relate to English speakers with her lyrics?

    Thuderbolt: My romantic gene is dominant and it hungers for union Universal intimacy. All embracing.
    May I, should I, can I or have I too often craved miracles?
    Waves irregularly striking. Wind stern in my face.
    Thunderstorm, come, scrape those barnacles off me!
    - That's the end of a relationship pick me up if I've ever heard any lyrics like it before.

    Crystalline: It's the sparkle you become. Conquer anxiety. Sparkle you become. Conquer anxiety

    And all of Mutual Core.

    ^ music video had a lot to do with her success, her videos were on MTV a lot. I remember them showing It's Oh So Quiet and Bachelorette (and others of course, but especially those two) repeatedly
    Also, her single run up to (and including imo) Medulla is spectacular

    No. I'm actually quite confused. It seems that auto correct did something and now I have no idea what if meant to type. It definitely wasn't "You think Homogenic and Post are total pop albums." I think I was trying to say that they WERE pop albums because someone had mentioned some albums as being pop and left those out. Now I can't even find where that was. Ugh.

    There are several magazines Bjork will grace the cover of in September and there are rumours that the album will be released on Sept 22nd. Fingers crossed.

    ^That's cool. She probably wants to minimize the chances of leaking but I wonder when the video for "The Gate" will be released?

    An interview in German Interview magazine, conducted at the same time as the Dazed one, mentions - apart from flutes and birdsong - also harps and an Icelandic choir (still not recorded at that time).

    Speaking of video music channels in the 90's, I loved that VH1 sampled her for "Insomniac Music Theatre". Takes me back
