Debut songs Product Information
Debut album for sale by Bjork was released Jul 13, 1993 on the Elektra (Label) label. With DEBUT, the Icelandic thrush Bjork Godmundsdottir (late of the Sugarcubes) brings her knowing innocence and quirky voice to bear on an engaging program of renegade pop tunes. Debut CD music The unusual instrumental textures on songs such as "Human Behavior," fleshed out with timpani, small percussion instruments, vibraphones and harps, suggests a post-modern version of Phil Spector. As a singer, Bjork's swooping octave leaps and guttural cries betray the elemental contradictions in her music. Debut CD music contains a single disc with 11 songs. ...See Full Description

Bjork - Debut Album Track Listing
Debut buy CD music Customer Reviews
Bjork's first disc is a fine blend of techno, pop, quirky lyrics, and innovative singing. Most of the songs are pretty good except for a few slow clunkers. The overall sound is a little thin at times. It's too bad because these songs are begging for remixes. However, the many CD single remixes following the release don't do the songs justice either. Bjork would make better albums in the future, but none with this much commercial potential.

||Iceland invades the Music Scene... again...|
I was not a typical Bjork fan. I first heard a few tracks... but it wasn't until I heard "Big Time Sensuality" in 1998... yes... five years after the actual release that I became intrigued with the entire album. Post... which is the sophomore album to follow up Debut is also a sure winner... However.. Homogenic... it is a far cry from her past work. I find it blends too many of the same sounds in one album. Her first two albums offer such a ecclectic mix.

||Is a great musical experience, indispensable in your collections|
I can find a great and complite work. All the songs are perfectly made. i recommend to listen all the c.d, from track 1 to track 12. You will feel the rhythms of the inspirating dreams.

||How often is EVERY song on a CD simply amazing?|
For you Bjork fans, there is no exception: you MUST own this album...her first full release "Debut" is undoubtely her best album. Note: try to get your hands on the Euro import version with bonus track "Play Dead", the most intense track on the album and (sorrowfully) not on the US release. Those new to Bjork: she is in a genre all her own. Will be one of the best CD's you own.
