Alternate Character Interpretation/ Love It or Hate It: Try to find someone who thinks Björk has an average voice, decent lyrics and an unremarkable fashion style. Go ahead, try.
Best Known for the Fanservice: The video for "Pagan Poetry" sticks out in memory because it features rotoscoped scenes of Björk and Matthew Barney having unsimulated sex. The piercings are also hard to forget.
Broken Base/ Contested Sequel: Some find Volta, and to a lesser extent Biophilia, to be too "difficult" and/or " self-indulgent". For others, this have been the case since . And no, attempting to discuss this anywhere is Homogenic not a good idea.
Covered Up: Her song "It's Oh So Quiet" is a cover of the less well-known Betty Hutton song, "Blow a Fuse".

Crowning Music of Awesome:
She made an album that's mostly a capella. What have you done?

Dancer in the Dark "I've Seen It All", "Pneumonia", "Unravel", and "Mother Heroic".
"Pagan Poetry" should also qualify for a lot of people who don't find it to be Nightmare Fuel. Or maybe you find it to be both.
"Jóga" could fill this too.
"Possibly Maybe" is rather depressing as well.
True Art Is Incomprehensible: Compounding that she's married to the artist who made these films, and they collaborated and starred in another film (she also did the soundtrack).
