* PainfulRhyme: In "The Comet Song", Björk rhymes "comet" with "dammit".


* BrokenBase: Some find ''Volta'', and to a lesser extent ''Biophilia'', to be too "difficult" and/or "[[AuteurLicense self-indulgent]]". For others, this have been the case since the DarkerAndEdgier ''Music/{{Homogenic}}''. And no, attempting to discuss this anywhere is [[BrokenBase not a good]] [[InternetBackdraft idea]].

* AlternateCharacterInterpretation: Try to find someone who thinks Björk has an average voice, decent lyrics and an unremarkable fashion style. Go ahead, try.

* CrazyAwesomeCrazyAwesome: Even if her music isn't for everyone, there's simply nobody like her. Seriously, try to find at least one person who thinks Björk has an average voice, decent lyrics and an unremarkable fashion style. Go ahead, try.


** Some consider the story of Ricardo Lopez to be this. Feelings of inferiority and rejection controlled his life, veered him away from his dreams, and culminated with him growing so socially reclusive that he retreated into a celebrity-populated fantasy world.
** "I Remember You". A stripped-down harp-and-vocals song made more distressing to most considering it was playing in the background when Björk's stalker Ricardo Lopez killed himself on tape.

world. And while his actions of going after Bjork is terrifying, the point still remains: He was a broken and somber man who became obsessed due to his broken state and it lead to him almost hurting her and later on, ending his own life.
** "I Remember You". A stripped-down harp-and-vocals song made more distressing to most considering it was playing in the background when Björk's stalker Ricardo Lopez killed himself on tape. Makes it worse considering at the end of the tape, you hear Lopez shout (at least implied by some) "THIS FOR YOU!", as if saying it was all for Bjork.


* AwesomeArt: [[DerangedAnimation As]] [[BlackComedy horrifying]] as "I Miss You" is, you have to admit that it's a very cool video. It helps that it was directed by Creator/JohnKricfalusi.

''Music/{{Debut}}'' is her most popular album in the U.S.


** All the videos from ''Music/{{Vespertine}}''. "Hidden Place"'s video is a close-up shot of Björk's face as a colorful mucus run through her eyes, nose and mouth. "Pagan Poetry"'s controversial video is a highly stylized sex tape of herself and her partner with a bonus at the end as half-naked Björk expresses herself in front of the camera with her body all pierced with pearl. "Cocoon"'s shows Björk in a 'naked' bodysuit playing with red thread extruding from her nipples with a few of squicky shots.

** All the videos from ''Music/{{Vespertine}}''. "Hidden Place"'s video is a close-up shot of Björk's face as a colorful rainbow-colored mucus run runs through her eyes, nose and mouth. "Pagan Poetry"'s controversial video is a highly stylized sex tape of herself and her partner with a bonus at the end as half-naked Björk expresses herself in front of the camera with her body all pierced with pearl. "Cocoon"'s shows Björk in a 'naked' bodysuit playing with red thread extruding from her nipples with a few of squicky shots.

Added DiffLines:

** Off ''Utopia'', the opening track "Arisen My Senses" and the correspondent music video, in its own twisted way. It shows Björk hatching from a slug-like cocoon into a moth-woman, who then exchanges bows with Music/{{Arca}} in front of a beautiful sunrise.

Added DiffLines:

** "Hyper-ballad" can be interpreted to be about deliberately hiding your unhappy, unpleasant thoughts from your partner, in order to spare them your unhappiness and make the relationship work. That alone makes it pretty sad, and Bjork's performance doesn't help.


** In stark contrast with the previous release [[DarkerAndEdgier Vulni]][[TearJerker cura]], ''Utopia'' is sweet and hopeful.
