Review Summary: Bjork's "Vespertine" [haiku review]

Bjork's Homogenic
stalker forced studio change
Mark Bell produces

kidney infection
album peaked at twenty-eight
cancelled tour of States

enter Vespertine
winter feel, muted samples
intimate window

some tracks had been leaked
a shame It's Not Up To You
was not included

regardless, Bjork shines
"little insects rising up"
she explained her sound

quiet and pensive
finds Bjork truly exposing
myriad of sounds

number one in Spain
Canada, France and Norway
sold well in the States

Vespertine is stark
may challenge the casual
for instance: Cocoon

repeated listens
reveal something different
for better or worse

it's quite unlikely
we'll find Bjork revisiting
this delicate sound

Bjork's finest moment
Vespertine just might be it
you may disagree
