scatter heart is some of her best minimalist string arrangements. it's devastating. the whole selmasongs album is absolutely incredible. i just relistened to it now and was blown away.

telegram is like an actual album in it's own right though, i don't think you'd even need to have heard the originals to appreciate it, it's just gorgeous. bastards on the other hand is more like just a playlist of remixes.

i don't get why it being a soundtrack doesn't count, cos apart from the overture, they are all songs... it's my first bjork record and a record that changed my life...

this stuff really bugs me, three years is not that long between albums. we've been weened off super commercial albums that roll out in a year and now the normal time is seen as a burden. reminds me of how everyone makes all these jokes and memes about frank ocean but honestly 4 years between albums isn't THAT long.

i love this version, they've made all the synths and beats even punchier and crispier and it just sounds so fresh!

i like most of what i've heard but this slow release of songs for months in advance of an album just means that when it comes out we'll have already heard most of it. it just makes the actual release a bit irrelevant.

May 13, 2016 on Ariana Grande – “Everyday” (Feat. Future)
wow the guetta rack is fucking terrible. really amazed they went with this vocal take it's utterly ghastly. honestly sounds like a joke; legit like someone taking the piss out of hackneyed female vocal clichées. also, it's nothing like lean on...????

May 13, 2016 on Diplo & DJ Snake Call Out David Guetta For Ripping Off “Lean On”
she called his parents dirty refugees too. i mean they were both born in england (and his mum is white) not that that really matters as it just says a whole lot about how she views refugees and therefore some of the most vulnerable people on the earth. horrible.

don't get me wrong they are still always good performances, there's just often something sterile and awkward about these studios

May 13, 2016 on Watch Animal Collective Play “FloriDada” On Colbert
they're amazing live in a proper concert setting with a big sound system but i dunno if it works as well in a tame toned-down tv studio setting. reminds me of how björk live shows are absolutely trippy and huge sounding but her tv appearances (except for jools holland!) never quite seem to have that same energy. there's never any bass on these shows for starters.

wow, i thought being in a band was primarily about music first and foremost. if they feel the need to pull all the stunts listed above - especially the latest one!! - then it doesn't fill me with confidence about their actual songs and no i am not gonna bother checking them out any time soon... trash

the dancing segment at the end literally looks like a steps video circa 1997, the colour scheme, the dancing, the outfits, everything....

if you've already paid that much for the special edition they won't mind if you download the digital version illegally.

so the alphabetical track list was intentional, i actually love that idea. i used to that for mix tapes and it would usually work out really well :)

in the time it took me to sign up to google play the album has vanished, was this a mistake? the alphabetical track list suggests so...

also do i detect e*mo*tion vibes in this one? not saying in a rip-off way, just that this track wouldn't sound out of place on CRJ's album
