When Bjork burst on the scene in 1993 with her album Debut I really didn’t know what to make of her. I hadn’t heard her when she was in “The Sugarcubes”, but suddenly here was this diminutive singer with the big voice singing strangely un-synchopated lyrics to heavy dance music. I liked the singles but didn’t really take her seriously. Gradually the girl has grown on me, and while not in my very favourite of favourites section I do still look out for her albums. I especially love “The Hunter” and “It’s Oh So Quiet”.
She seems to keep coming up with new sounds, new ideas and even new instruments. She is quite a phenomenon and seems to be genuinely oblivious to fame. I suspect she may actually be a bit crazy.
