Vespertine lovers, are you taking some serious pharmaceuticals?

I'm in a bit of a vicodin haze right now...should I go listen to the album?

I just can't imagine loving something so...cotton candy.

Melissa W (Melissa W), Friday, 28 January 2005 07:24 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

Yes, and yes.

sundar subramanian (sundar), Friday, 28 January 2005 07:34 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

I hate cotton candy if it helps any.

Part of it has to do with tensions I hear that maybe you don't: how e.g. glitches or dissonance might rupture soft 'pretty' melodic and timbral surfaces.

sundar subramanian (sundar), Friday, 28 January 2005 07:40 (thirteen years ago) Permalink

xpost for Mel W

it took seeing the breathtaking Royal Opera House DVD for Vespertine to really 'click' with me, and when it did it was a small bombshell. As well as a 'Well, duh' moment. I don't hear it as glossed over, 'cotton candy' sentimental, superficial or derivative anymore since then.

In fact I think it shares a lot of moments exactly as raw, searching and emotionally exposed as 'Homogenic' (Cocoon, Pagan Poetry, An Echo A Stain and especially Aurora) along with the more familiar loved-up peans to eternal domestic comforts, life and family.

To me it's another fantastic work that came from a not-too enjoyable time in her life very much akin to 'Homogenic', if you're willing to buy into the whole emotional pain=deeper better art theory/cliche I guess.

I think the reason this wasn't picked up on as much of a take on the record is as much a result of her modesty at the time in not making any linking comments re: Lars Von Trier (although she has spoken out a bit more about it now, describing the process of making Dancer In The Dark as like 'having petrol poured on your soul' (approx)) and the fact that the record has a happy ending this time, mirrored by the fact she was very publicly known to be in love again.

I do think a big weakness of the record as a whole is the length, and the 'still' sounding songs (It's Not Up To You, Undo, Harm of Will) which make it feel sprawling and dense compared to her usual albums. The first two of those in particular just felt like re-treads thematically for her and really alienated me from what I feel is the real spirit of the record better captured further in. And as for 'happy endings' again, I think 'Unison' is a charming but unusually indistict closing track by her standards.

I'm definitely glad she's moved on from it though, it would have been a stiflingly pretty, eventually vacant artistic direction to move any further into.

I guess I wrote all that because I'm a huge fan of hers too, and (ridiculously) it really pains me to know that someone else has the trouble I had not 'getting' one of her finest records yet. Or maybe you'll never like it it doesn't really matter :)

oh, and for the thread

interspersed with huge amounts of everything else she's done. Post from the livebox is also far, far more deserving of the acclaim for that record and time and carries the sentiment, and sense of adventure a little better than the studio record I think.

ryan, Tuesday, 28 June 2011 01:43 (seven years ago) Permalink

when i first heard homogenic i was in high school marching band and we had a metronome that emitted a tone similar to the one that carries "5 years." this could be the intended effect and the tone itself could be universal among all metronomes but it was a cool connection to make in high school, felt like i had decoded something.

How could anyone possibly hold up Homogenic above All Else when it contains such duds as "All Neon Like", "Five Years", "All Is Full Of Love", is beyond me.

Yes, how could we dare hold it above others when it has three of her best songs on it! How ridiculous of us!

ephendophile (Eric H.), Tuesday, 28 June 2011 15:22 (seven years ago) Permalink

I've inexplicably never listened to Selmasongs, but if you're going to include soundtrack work, you have to include the Drawing Restraint 9 one, imo.

I think of Bjork more as a time-period artist than a singles or album artist. Most of the influences/musical arrangements tend to be related to albums, but the selection of songs that happen on tour and the arrangements that are done vary so much due to the makeup of the instrumentalists.

fwiw I really like "All Neon Like" and "I Miss You"

I'm happy to see people didn't criminally underrate Vespertine.

she started dancing to that (Finefinemusic), Tuesday, 28 June 2011 16:17 (seven years ago) Permalink

And here I was thinking I'd be made to suffer for shitting on "Declare Independence".
The problem w/those tracks off Homogenic-- and even "Immature"-- is that they're the first songs where B embraces this new, meandering style of melody writing that sounds comparatively banal to her earlier stuff.
"All Is Full Of Love" was redeemed by the Plaid remix and the video, but doesn't do anything for me on the album.
To really come clean, when I got that album as a teenager, I pretty much hated the lyrical content, full-stop. "I'm no fucking Buddhist but this is enlightenment", "If you forget my name / you will go astray / like a killer whale / trapped in a bay"-- not B's own lyric but still-- "I dare you to take me on / I dare you to show me your palms", "The riddle gets solved and you push me up to this state of emergency".

Sorry to take aim at a sacred cow here, I'm a big fan, I love Homogenic, but I feel it is just as fallible and speckled as any of her albums and don't get why it gets held up above all else. Maybe I just listened to it too many times.

"Post" is my favourite overall, followed by Debut and Medulla.

According to a press release, Biophilia consists of "a studio album, apps, a new website, custom-made musical instruments, live shows and educational workshops," not to mention a documentary film

And previously reported, Björk is currently in the middle of the first run of Biophilia shows, taking place at the Manchester International Festival in Manchester, England. This is indicative of the way she intends to tour behind the album. Over the next three years, she plans to play six-week residencies in eight cities, all at intimate venues, to audiences of less than 2,000. At these performances, she'll use the apps to perform Biophilia in full twice a week. During her residencies, the venues will also collaborate with local schools to host music-education workshops.

I just prefer Bjork getting urgent to her being cooey cute a la Debut.

This binary doesn't exist with Bjork -- most of her work is urgent when it's most cute. I'm still fond of Debut because it finds her wrestling, for the last time, with the production du jour and injecting enough personality. It's almost a covers album! But if by cute you mean "The Anchor Song," "Venus as a Boy," "Come to Me" -- man, she's got descendants on every album!

vulnicura took a little while to grow on me - i usually tend to gravitate to her more 'active' material, but vulnicura is great sink-into-able material from front to back, and better than she's done that kind of stuff on any of her earlier records. watched the videos for utopia but haven't gotten around to it yet apart from those

i haven't listened to a few of these completely in a while, and i'm generally pretty amenable to most of what björk does, but (very) rough ranking off the top of my head:

Vulnicura was a welcome return to form for me when released, it seemed to revisit the harsher distorted beats of Homogenic and was a little more accessible emotionally. Utopia was also a nice surprise, the arrangements are gorgeous on this and it's really a record to live in. Also there's some good melodic vocal hooks, which it seems have become less frequent on recent Bjork albums
