I have this copy here because it is a beautiful 2LP set, glossy package with glossy inner sturdy cardboard sleeves with printed lyrics. Lovely!
Bjork in 2011 was still up to her tricks, making great, solid records that capture you and hold you as she weaves worlds in your ears. There is no one else like her in the world, I’d wager, unless they are imitators of her. She’s a legend, at this point.
There were 4 singles from the album: Crystalline, Cosmogony, Virus, and Moon.
More: “Björk composed it as a concept album during the 2008–2011 Icelandic financial crisis, exploring the links between nature, music and technology. Billed as the first “app album”, Biophilia is a multimedia project released alongside a series of apps linking the album’s themes to musicology concepts. It was followed by a series of educational workshops in four continents.” (Wiki) You can read more of the background, concept, as well as about the app and artwork HERE.
Here’s the whole album. Try it. Then buy it!
