Homogenic embraced all of Björk’s most provocative contradictions. The main theme is the wish to rush headlong into a life lived to the fullest-an unbridled yearning for the sublime. The album followed suit. Trading the playful eclecticism of Debut and Post for distorted, hardscrabble electronic drums and warm, melancholy strings, it showcased a newly focused side of the musician while embracing all of her most provocative contradictions. By 1997, when she released Homogenic, Björk had been a familiar face to pop fans for a decade.

Released September 22, 1997. This album juxtaposes the organic with the electronic, and was mostly produced and written by Björk with some help from Mark Bell, Sjón, Howie B, Guy Sigsworth, among others. These are the words that Björk used to describe Homogenic:, an, Contrast, Patriotic, Warrior, Confrontational, Green, Volcanic Beats, Iceland Octet, Active.

Homogenic is the third studio album by Icelandic recording artist Björk. It was released on 22 September 1997 in the United Kingdom by One Little Indian Records and in the United States by Elektra Records. Produced by Björk, Mark Bell, Guy Sigsworth, Howie B, and Markus Dravs, the album marked the beginning of a new style for the singer, focusing on similar-sounding music combining electronic beats and string instruments with songs in tribute to her native country Iceland

Björk is the only studio album by Icelandic singer Björk Guðmundsdóttir as a child singer, released on 18 December 1977 by Fálkinn. In 1976, Björk appeared on Icelandic radio singing "I Love to Love" through the music school she attended, which led her to a record deal and the release, with the help of stepfather Sævar, of her first solo album in 1977.

Homogenic embraced all of Björk’s most provocative contradictions. Score: 10 Mastapeece.

Before I bought Björk's third album, Homogenic, in an Our Price in Kent with some birthday vouchers, I had only ever listened to Michael Jackson. That's not an exaggeration. Call it blind fandom perhaps, but it felt weird not listening to MJ, like anything else was cheating.

Björk’s sophomore effort, 1995’s Post, is the kind of album that would have made any other artist crumble under the pressure to top or even match its excellence. With Homogenic, Björk expressed and dissected her disharmony with the physical world by diving headlong into the metaphysical, and by doing so she took the groundbreaking sonics of the electronic maestros before her-808 State, Kraftwerk, Brian Eno and Stockhausen, whose influence can be heard on Post’s Headphones -and gave it living, breathing humanity.
