5 stars Having listened to most of Bjorks albums, I have developed a bit of love for her, for some reason, for about 2 weeks I could listen nothing to Bjork and kind of fell in love with her, watching interviews and just kind of wanting to be with her all the time...but this little crush has died off...but who knows, our love might be one of these days.

This album seems to be one of her most critically aclaimed albums, and I can see why, for I see it as her most consistent album, with a similar sound throughout, but each song still maintaining a uniqueness.

I think this album would be the one to give someone who hadn't heard of Bjork, cause it's her most easiest to get into, with after one listen, understanding what she is doing with it.

1. Hunter - This again is one of her most well known songs, but I'm not the biggest fan of it, but within the context of the album, it fits in perfectly. It has a great trippy vibe to it. 9/10

2. Jóga - One of the albums most strongest songs, with such a strong and beautiful melody throughout. Nice and serene. 10/10

3. Unravel - The lyrics are so childlike, but it adds to the beauty of the song. One of Bjorks most accomplished devolved melodies. Thanks to Guy Sigsworth I believe. 10/10

4. Bachelorette - The repetitive melody is built up throughout. Has a hidden sadness behind it, and some nice poetic lyrics. 10/10

5. All Neon Like - Very trippy and the mixing is amazing. The build up is quite intense. 10/10

6. 5 Years - Nice experimental structure. 9/10

7. Immature - Quite noisy at times, and has a bit of a punk vibe to it. 8/10

8. Alarm Call - Quite funny lyrics and one of her most upbeat songs. 9/10

9. Pluto - Very eerie and noisy, even for Bjorks standards. 9/10

10. All Is Full Of Love - I prefer the single version, but as an album closer it does bode well, but I think the album would have been better starting off with the single edit of this song...just throwing it out their. And you just kind of need to hear this song to understand haha. 10/10

CONCLUSION: She's just a genius
