I was reading a similar poll on another site from a few years back and they were very keen on Volta overall. I had never heard it before last month, was very keen at first but went off it a bit, only one track was in my final ballot

Waiting for the poll results and listening to a tracks that never really stuck with me. And coming across "Foot Soldier," I'm thinking that's one of the first examples of a Bjork track that vocally is entirely made up of the the "auto-Bjork-isms" phenomenon that mars a lot of her later work. No meter, no rhyme, mostly stock melodic phrasings (swooping from a low to higher note repeatedly), etc. It's weird, because the b-sides of that era are otherwise some of her more melodically compelling work (i.e. "Generous Palmstroke," "Domestica," etc.)?

For comparison:
