It's not Bjork's best album, but still very good. I just think it's funny how defensive this writer gets about Bjork not rocking anymore from what he was used to with The Sugarcubes. "Painfully eclectic" will be my epitaph.
Holy shit that was bad, but it's Rolling Stone so it's par for the course.
Have you seen this?
I don't agree with all of the guy's commentaries on the albums being reviewed, but fuck if Rolling Stone hasn't been dead fucking wrong about practically everything.
Rolling Stone has this uncanny habit of dismissing new genres of music until they reach the peak of their popularity, they also have a habit of changing their opinions on artists once they reach veteran status, like how they mercilessly trashed McCartney's early (and best) solo work but by the 80s when McCartney actually did
become as sappy as critics always accused him of being, well then he shat gold breaks and could do no wrong.
They have panned the fuck out of at least half of the albums that are now on their 500 greatest albums of all time list when they were first released, I don't think they have ever successfully predicted a trend in music, but once something is popular enough they sure as fuck milk it for all it's worth.
