a stunning introduction to Bjork containing some well-known classics - later albums and songs are more celebrated and rightly so, but this holds a special place in the heart

A bit too much dance for me, but Venus As a Boy, Come To Me and Violently Happy are great. On my album there is another track, 'Play Dead', which I really like. Not sure why it's not shown above.

a bright and danceable debut ! sure, it's not intellectually *deep* and *profound*, or sonically adventurous like her later works , but it doesn't have to be. i'm glad this record has fared really well on this site

Not as many memorable or distinct songs as the average Bjork album (even though that's saying a lot), but this album deserves to be celebrated for it's mesmerizing and forward-thinking production, as well as Bjork's outstanding and interesting vocal delivery.

Most magical and inspired album. Being Bjork in 1993 must have been a wonderful place to be.

A Bjork riconosco soprattutto una capacità di concretizzare in una forma canzone compiuta e soprattutto un'abilità nel creare calore da materia apparentemente fredda, come se fosse un geyser islandese, sua terra natia.

Can't believe this is a debut album, considering all the confidence and musicianship that permeates on every song. Human Behavior is such a great introduction to Bjork; and if you don't like that song, you might not like her in general. Or Maybe you'll only like her Jazz songs, in that case. I also prefer this album version of Big Time Sensuality as opposed to the single/music video version. There was really only two songs that didn't have a big impact on me, Come To Me & One Day, but they were still beautiful and impressive. The album is awesome in general and it has some of Bjork's most signature tracks and musical habits. It makes for a chill party album with some friends too. Not as good as Post, but pretty damn close. I've yet to fully explore her other albums these are already close to being masterpieces.
