Acoustic Companion Album To Vulnicura!


What the Icelandic art star Bjork has accomplished at the intersection of pop and the avant-garde cannot be summed up in one detail, but one thing to focus on is the way she sings the word "emotional". Climbing it like one of the cliffs she often evokes in her pastoral lyrics, she lets it open up like a vista on its central, circulatory "o." The word becomes a Valkyrie's cry, a statement of purpose both sacred and humanly thrilling.

Recalling the way she deployed it in her landmark 1997 hit "Joga," Bjork wails "emotional" in the very first chorus on Vulnicura, the "heartbreak album", which offers a needed model for heart-baring (and bearing) in this cool, fiber-optic age.

"Black Lake," Vulnicura's centerpiece, unfolds like an aria — the designated space within classical music where a woman can reveal how men have betrayed her, both intimately and within society. Because this is Bjork, however, instead of employing coloratura cries, she shares her tragedy in calm but mounting phrases that reflect both folk balladry and torch songs. In spare couplets gradually pushed forward by Arca's biological beats, she reveals first her own pain, then the way her lover created it through betrayal, which Bjork defines as a hollowing of the heart.

Bjork has taken her instant classic and re-worked the tracks in to string and coal compositions. She has removed the bass, the drums, electronics. Its stripped down, raw and powerful. As true a look as you can get into this albums personal material.

Bjork's Vulnicura has sold over 70k copies since it's March release. Pitchfork, NY Times, Rolling Stone, Spin, NY Mag, LA Times all raved about Vulnicura making it one of the years best received albums.

"Vulnicura honors her pain and the necessary path through and away from loss with some of her bravest, most challenging, and most engaging music." -Heather Phares, allmusic.com
