3 stars I like "Post". It is quite like "Debut" in many ways as both albums have lots of variety although this one explores some slightly different sounds.

The album kicks off with "Army Of Me", a very energetic track with a warped, industrial sound which makes it suitable for running along or dancing to. There are some lusher tracks too like "Hyper-Ballad" and "Modern Things" which are two favourites of mine. Both songs have rather odd but intriguing lyrics. I would say that Bjork really shows her eccentricities here, more so than on her previous album. I do like "It's Oh So Quiet" and absolutely agree with another reviewer who said that it's the kind of track you either love or hate. I think it's amusing and has a lot of character.

"Enjoy" is probably my least favourite song on the album, while the striking, cinematic "Isobel" is possibly the most beautiful. I'm sure most listeners would agree on that. It seems to jump out and slap me in the face with it's passion and charm every time I hear it. "Possibly Maybe" is a nice mellow, trippy song with some strange and eerie arrangements. "I Miss You" is also a good uplifting, quirky number. If only all pop music was as interesting as the music here. "Cover Me" is quite chilling and I'm not quite sure what to make of "Headphones" but still reckon it's good stuff. "Post" would certainly be a very good part of any progressive or alternative music collection. 3.5 Stars.
