Vespertine songs Product Information
Vespertine album for sale by Bjork was released Aug 28, 2001 on the Elektra (Label) label. VESPERTINE was nominated for the 2002 Grammy Award for Best Alternative Music Album. Vespertine CD music Bjork's first non-soundtrack album since HOMOGENIC is positively pastoral compared with that release's experimental electronic textures. Swathed in strings and laced with beautiful choral arrangements, VESPERTINE has more in common with SELMASONGS, echoing that DANCER IN THE DARK soundtrack album's meandering melody lines, while smoothing out and adding an ethereal sheen to the more angular approaches of the singer's previous work. Vespertine CD music contains a single disc with 12 songs. ...See Full Description

This a u-turn from the excellent and dense album "Homogenic", this time Björk makes it ecstaticly intimate, delicate and tender, diaphanous and ethereal. If you already have "Selmasongs", you could feel the transition and you could have expected the style of Vespertine. The album is great, Björk is definitively the most creative female musician nowadays. Her voice is better than ever and it outstands beautifully in songs like "Cocoon" and "Aurora". The electronic beats, mixed with harp, musicboxes and beautiful choirs creates a kind of music like you've never heard. For me the best songs are "Hidden Place", "It's not up to you", "Aurora" and I think "Pagan Poetry" (excellent!! no words to describe it...!!) by itself makes the album worth buying.

||Vespertine...a colt classic.|
With past albums, Bjork has tried to accomplish what is now know as simply Vespertine. The soft, introverted Bjork creates a world of inner human fanatasy, pushing to explore every inch. The shy and forward Hidden Place starts the journey into the soul, somber yet reassured of what is wanted, and pushes all the way to the culminating finale of rembracing in Unison. The length of the album proves to be perfect in setting the quite, almost un-noticed micro beat-sound, produced by a wide range of artists spanning from Matmos, Mark Bell, Thomas Knak, and finally to the ever impressive Console with the most improtant amount of care. We must take Vespertine as Bjork asks...in a generous mood, and hope for all the best.

||Good, but not as fresh as earlier albums.|
I appreciate the intimacy of this album, but I do not think it has the blatant originality and as unique a sound as "Homogenic" and other of Bjork's earlier efforts. I'd say buy if you're a fan, but don't expect to hear any groundbreaking work.

||What else can be said?|
What can I say about this album that others haven't? Georgeous, haunting, a completely perfect album from start to finish, and beyond! The b-sides from the singles off the album are equally mesmerizing! Bjork is a Goddess, no one can touch her!!!!

||An excellent album|
I can't say enough what a wonderful album this is, from the opening track 'til the end it carries you away to landscapes in your mind you have not visited before. Go buy it! Go buy it! Go buy it!
