 I cannot confirm Michael´s way of describing the strange everyday life in Björk´s homeland, but it is definetely true that this is a stunning record. "Medulla" has nothing in common with arty avantgarde games and cold experiments. The music is really moving through centuries and (defined and not-defined) styles without losing its coherence. My favourite track is the one, where Robert Wyatt is singing a duet with Björk. It´s like a dream come true: the english singer/drummer/trumpet player/songwriter, who has released last year´s masterpiece "Cuckooland", offers his fragile voice in all its ethereal beauty.

 As I am finding since I first came across this website last week, this is the best review of this extraordinary (if not entirely enjoying all the way through) album I have seen. The context that is provided of Iceland is truthful and justified, I believe the nature of her country has influenced Bjorks music and attitudes enormously. If she was English or America she would have been swallowed up with a glut of other artists, pigeonholed, copied, mass marketed, constrained and then dumped. You are respected in Iceland for being artistic (most people there have published a novel) and expressing yourself. "Who is it?" is my current fave, though I am sure the more subtly ethereal, experimental tracks will shine through over time, as they do with every Bjork release.
