"But for all her classical ambitions and hyperextended metaphors, the best Björk tracks express startlingly direct emotional truths, blown up to their towering real-life scale. Nowhere is this more clear than on her ninth album proper, Vulnicura. Co-produced by Arca (Kanye West's Yeezus, FKA twigs' LP1, his own Xen) and the Haxan Cloak and drawing on Björk's split with artist Matthew Barney, the album places itself among the most human, emotionally candid, even functional of art forms: the breakup album. Its position is deliberate; in conversation with Pitchfork, she called Vulnicura a "traditional singer/songwriter thing," suggesting something plainspoken, modest, even folksy. Perhaps unsurprisingly, Vulnicura is none of these things, but it's simultaneously her most mature feat of arranging and almost psychosomatically affecting." (Pitchfork) also available on CD
