Or, rather, I wish I liked Björk’s music.
The excellent Vulnicura thread confirmed it. I think she’s fascinating, visually stunning – a true artist. I just can’t get along with her music. Nothing about it holds my attention. I’d love to have all her cds lined up on a shelf ‘cos I think she deserves fame and success for her pioneering spirit, originality and risk taking. But I just haven’t been hooked by any post- Sugarcubes stuff. I’m happy watching videos on Youtube, but with the sound down. I’ll read interviews with her, read about her, listen to her speak and hang on every cockney/Icelandic word. I think she’s brilliant, a genius … but a track comes on and I (mentally) turn off.
I don’t think this is an ‘I don’t get …’ or a ‘sell me on …’ post.
Does anyone else feel like this about anyone, not just Björk, from any sphere of the arts?
