Classic Album Sundays presents Björk ‘Homogenic’

This month Homogenic is 20 years old and Classic Album Sundays is celebrating with album listening sessions around the world. Björk, along with Mark Bell, Guy Sigsworth, Howie B and Markus Dravs, produced an album that saw Björk take yet another musical turn – a juxtaposition of organic instruments (strings, accordion, harp, pipe organ) and synthetic elements that dug even deeper into the experimental dance sounds that were emanating from the U.K.

The fact that English is a second language for Björk has always allowed for a unique approach to words and phrases. On Post, Björk seemed to be writing lyrics from the perspective of an eccentric homebody given to daydreaming; on Homogenic her lyrics became more  incisive, astute and confrontational: “How could I be so immature/To think that he could replace/The missing elements in me?/How extremely lazy of me!” was most likely referencing her relationship with Tricky. Read more about the album here.

Homogenic is still considered one of the best works in Björk’s incredible cannon of music, and we are excited to present this as our worldwide Album of the Month. Join us to hear this incredible album in a new and enlightening way.
