4 stars This is one of the greatest electronic albums. It has a wonderful fusion of warm string arrangements as well as abstract and stuttering beats. It doesn't have any peppy dance/house tracks like on previous albums. There are lots of instruments throughout and some unique touches especially from some accordian, violins, horns, cellos and glass harmonica which create a nice warm atmosphere.

A lot of the songs on the album are a tribute to Bjork's native Iceland and she aimed for the music to have a certain "roughness" about it, like the country's landscape. In addition there are some subtle traditonal vocals typically used by Icelandic chior men. Highlights for me include "Joga", "Bacherolette" and "Immature". The only one track on the album I don't find so appealing is "Pluto" as it's a little too warped for my liking.

Overall this album shows Bjork becoming even more interesting. Even more intriguing sounds were yet to come on later albums. Homogenic is highly recommended to all. 4 stars.
