Vespertine is the fourth studio album by Icelandic recording artist Björk. It was released on 27 August 2001 in the United Kingdom by One Little Indian Records and in the United States by Elektra Records. Production on the album began during the filming of Dancer in the Dark, which was characterized by conflict between the singer and director Lars von Trier. Vespertine's sound reflected Björk's newly found interest in the music of artists such as Opiate and Console, who were also enlisted as producers.

Vespertine-Related releases: ▪ Vespertine Live At Royal Opera House (Live video) ▪ ▪ Minuscule (Documentary) ▪ ▪ Inside Björk (Documentary) ▪ ▪ Vespertine Live (Live album) ▪ ▪ Surrounded (Boxset) ▪. Tracklist. Some tracks have absolutely horrid distortion and clipping, and some sound perfectly fine. On the contrary, Bjork's microbeats sound sharp and pristine, adding incredible layers of depth to each track.

And what's a Björk album without the ambush? That said, Vespertine has more than just a handful of charms. The record is gorgeously orchestrated with the Icelander's neon string sections, chiming music boxes, and intricately arranged background Björks. Hidden Place" opens Vespertine with a glitchy, almost lo-fi melodic loop, paired with the deep sub-bass attack that has dominated the low-end of Björk's music in recent years. Aurora" begins with rhythmic broomsweeps and awakens with delicate frosted chimes and angelic choirs.

Björk’s Vespertine, released in August 2001, may be the first (and last) album written for the Napster age. With her fifth studio release, and coming off the expansive, futuristic Homogenic, Björk set out to make an intimate album of micro-beats and minimalist production. She would create 80% of the Vespertine instrumentals herself, while the lyrics moved toward exploring greater depths of sex,love, and hibernation. At the finishing stages of Vespertine, Björk sent tracks to virtuoso producers Thomas Knak and Matmos.

Vespertine, released in August 2001, is an album by the Icelandic sician Björk. It sees Björk creating an introverted, quiet world of swirling microbeats and personal lyrics. On the cover she can be seen wearing the swan dress (designed by Marjan Pejoski) that caused a stir at the 2001 Academy Awards.

  • Legendary Icelandic singer-songwriter Björk released a true masterpiece in 2001 and it remains her best album to date.Vespertine is an amazing album in every sense of the word. I love pretty much all of Björk's music (Biophilia is not a favourite of mine) but this album is without a doubt my favourite out of her amazing discography and might just be one of my favourite albums of all time.The production on this album is a strong highlight and is noticeably minimal but dazzlingly pretty. Björk wholly compliments this with her exquisite vocals and sometimes explicit lyrical themes about love and intimacy. One of the things I just love about this record is that it sounds so relaxing and textured when it comes to sound. You could stick this on before bed and feel a sense of warmth & comfort as you listen to each track. My favourite track, 'Cocoon' is one of my all-time favourite tracks and showcases Björk at her very best vocally. This is definitely a sexually explicit track which has glitchy production and stunning vocals. It's a very poetic track as well; Björk sings about her at the time partner, Matthew Barney, and the sexual desires and intimacy they shared. The name of the track is most likely in reference to the line "He's still inside me" and she also mentions that "a chain of pearls... is shot precisely across an ocean", which is her describing ejaculation... it's a truly beautiful track despite the explicit themes.To be quite honest I have zero nitpicks with this album. Every song is as perfect as it could be and that's why this album is so good in the first place. I can almost guarantee that you will love this album unless you find Björk's vocals too strange or left-field... which I just can't understand myself; it's a fascinating piece of art which I can't see myself never coming back to.Best tracks: Hidden Place, Cocoon, Pagan Poetry, Aurora, An Echo, A StainWorst tracks: N/A★★★★★

  • Can't quite put my finger on it, but Vespertine is the only Bjork release I've been able to get into, yet it remains one of my favorite recordings by any artist and has been since its release 17 years ago. There's a simple beauty she's weaved throughout every track that never fails to mesmerize. Simple, yet complex in its layering and dynamics. Every listen exposes hidden elements of her visionary approach to composing. Before hearing Vespertine, I knew Bjork was an incredible artist, but it wasn't until I immersed myself in this recording that I realized how truly brilliant she is. Hidden Place - Sets the tone for the album, but is the most ominous, dark composition on the recording.I love the vocal layering coupled with the string arrangements that build into each chorus. Cocoon - There's an inherent sexiness and intimacy to this track. Her voice is front-and-center with no effects added. You can hear every breath and voice inflection perfectly. Especially at 3:00 where it's almost as if she's having an orgasm in your ear right after she says, "he's still inside me." The subtle chimes, bell style bassline, glitchy beat and electronic piano stabs adds to the songs mystique. It's Not Up to You - This is one of the more complex compositions on the recording with string arrangements, glitchy drum beats, subtle soundscapes, deep basslines, strange synth lines, bells, a harp, pads, and a vocal melodies. The harpsichord at 2:17 is an unexpected, but a welcome touch along with the subtle flute in the background. Undo - Gorgeous songwriting. The dynamics introduced at 3:35 with the vocal choir, string arrangement and heavy bass gives me chills every time I hear them. Pagan Poetry - As soon as I heard this one, I knew I was listening to a masterpiece. Immaculate songwriting and production from beginning to end. Moody, beautiful, unique, adventurous, and completely unexpected. Her vocal performance beginning at 3:20 is mind-blowing followed by a creepy, stalkerish style vocal line singing "I love him" over and over and over again. To get an idea of how amazing her voice is, listen to what she does at 4:39, Frosti - Gorgeous musical box composition without vocals. Love the bassline that enters at 0:31. Aurora - This one is a slow burn. Not my favorite, but still a beautiful track. Especially the breathy chorus.An Echo A Stain - Skippable track. Surprised Tricky wasn't tagged on this one. Sounds like something he'd compose. Song gets real weird at 3:15. Sun In My Mouth - If any song could be omitted, it'd be this one. Heirloom - Put a pair of good headphones on, turn the lights off, turn the volume up, and hit play. Heaven for the ear drums. There's incredible depth to this track. So much fun to dig into. Definitely my favorite track on the album. Harm Of Will - Gorgeous track, but I usually skip it. Unison - Good track, but I tend to skip it when it comes on. Great chorus

  • The closing track in "Homogenic" already suggested what kind of mood we would have found in "Vespertine". We could consider this album a direct sequel, even though it sounds completely the opposite. In this record, you will hear Björk singing in a gentle whisper a lot more than belting, which really is a drastic change if we think of older songs like "Bachelorette" or "Pluto" where she slaps you with her voice at full power. "Vespertine" does have a couple of loud climaxes, but the fact that there are so few makes them more memorable, in a way. In terms of vocals, this is very far from the acrobatics she used to do when she was singing punk music during the 80s or even in some of her earliest collaborations and solo works in the 90s - even though to be fair, in "Pagan Poetry" she hits the highest note she's ever reached in a studio album. But in "Vespertine", her singing purposely makes use of little technical imperfections, and that just makes it all the more brilliant and genuine. The arrangements are also a lot more complex, as it involved the creation of dozens of microbeats, a lot of them made with objects we could find in a house. But we can even hear steps on snow as a beat, which sounds absolutely incredible even two decades after the album was released. The songs are so instrumentally detailed that it requires concentration to listen to all their subtle elements, which makes "Vespertine" an album that you hardly get tired of, but you will end up being lost and missing a lot if you listen absentmindedly. The atmosphere stands on some paradoxical contrasts: it sounds very transcendental, yet Björk sings about "the mystery of her flesh". It sounds like the materialistic dimension and the spiritual dimension are completely intertwined and there is no real separation. It also sounds extremely feminine, to the point where masochism is envolved and love becomes a painful submissive pleasure. Yet it almost gets matriarchal at some points: "Aurora", one of the peaks of this album, seems like a heart-felt prayer to a goddess. That's why she is not really making any sense here, cause she is trying to make two conflicting realities go together, as she sings in "Unison": "you gardener, I can obey all of your rules and still be". Let's be clear though, logic might be useful in order to define the underground structure of your songs, but it matters nothing for the purpose of expressing yourself with music: that contradiction represents how she felt at the time, and the way it was conveyed through the entire album is very sharp and subtly powerful. I don't know much more music that gave me this level of emotions and still feels intensely engaging after all these years.My rating: 9.6 out of 10
