How Could the Day Thread Be So Immature?

This is part 2 of a series of Open Thread headers hyping my all-time favorite albums.

I’m a fountain of blood

In the shape of a girl

You’re the bird on the brim

Hypnotised by the whirl

My 9th-favorite album ever is Homogenic by Björk. It’s her masterpiece, combining electronic rhythms with classical strings to create a sound both aged and futuristic (like the phenomenal cover art). It’s also a grand showcase for Björk’s powerful and unique voice. It’s an emotionally massive album, and it sells those emotions with a combination of raw passion and technical perfection.
