Rating metrics: Outliers can be removed when calculating a mean average to dampen the effects of ratings outside the normal distribution. This figure is provided as the trimmed mean. A high standard deviation can be legitimate, but can sometimes indicate 'gaming' is occurring. Consider a simplified example* of an item receiving ratings of 100, 50, & 0. The mean average rating would be 50. However, ratings of 55, 50 & 45 could also result in the same average. The second average might be more trusted because there is more consensus around a particular rating (a lower deviation).
(*In practice, some albums can have several thousand ratings)

This album is rated in the top 1% of all albums on BestEverAlbums.com. This album has a mean average rating of 83.0/100. The trimmed mean (excluding outliers) is 84.4/100. The standard deviation for this album is 16.2.

I liked this album while I was in high school, but in those years Björk was more of a thing that my brother liked and I heard while I was doing something else. Then I saw Hunter's video and realized how complex was the artistry of Björk, pushing not only in her sound but in her visual concept.

Then Medulla came out and I was impressed so I reviewed her whole discography. This album, in particular, has a little bit of everything she will pursuit during her career. And it is lovely.

Definitely the first album where she puts forward a consistent, own sound she'll pursue and try to improve on albums after this one.

An interesting album with a sophisticated approach, even though the basic compostions are not exactly brilliant.
She has a great voice but somehow abuses the metrics.
Björk's forte is her risk-taking attitude.

Björk is one of my favorite singers. After her first two albums with slightly zigzagging styles, "Debut" and "Post", Björk definitely announces the color, to create a much more focused album, much more homogeneous. Thus was born "Homogenic", an album where Björk incorporates electro beats with cold sounds and orchestrations with cinematographic arrangements. As a tribute to Iceland, this album emanates a sort of coldness, tetanizing and supernatural. The powerful and captivating voice of Björk marks this transcendent musicality with a mysticism. I see in "Homogenic" the budding of this artist who asserts herself, who is bold and has since reinvented herself. This is a truly unique album. I am absolutely a fan. Ok, I still prefer "Vespertine" whose electronic sound is even more successful. But "Homogenic" still contains my favorite Björk songs.

9/10

Incredible artist, incredible album. Homogenic indeed but in a good way: most of the album sounds like an artsy, dark-ish James Bond soundtrack (e.g. Hunter, Bachelorette), and as a huge Bond fan, this is a really nice parallel. Bjork's unique voice and art-pop sensibilities really shine here.

Radiohead imitated this album by doing Kid A that was ridiculous compared to this masterpiece
