Björk: Drawing Restraint 9

Album Reviews:

Rolling Stone (No. 982, p.112) - 3 stars out of 5 - "Bjork's delicate compositions employ harp, glockenspiel and the sho, a fifteen-pipe Japanese instrument...."

Uncut (p.117) - 4 stars out of 5 - "Bjork's vocals are a hypnotic midnight whisper, a continuation of MEDULLA's vocal layering techniques."

Mojo (Publisher) (p.62) - Ranked #2 in Mojo's "2005 Soundtracks Of The Year."

Mojo (Publisher) (p.92) - 3 stars out of 5 - "'Ambergris March' is a stunning, multi-tracked Björk performance....Exceptionally inventive."

Album Notes

An unconventional and somewhat challenging soundtrack to the work of a singularly strange filmmaker, Bjork's score for her partner Matthew Barney's DRAWING RESTRAINT 9 takes the Icelandic performer's already adventurous aesthetic to new extremes. While a few tracks featuring Bjork (or, in the case of "Gratitude," Will Oldham) on vocals vaguely resemble her more pop-friendly outings, much of this album is steeped in avant-garde atmospherics that include lilting harp passages (the aforementioned "Gratitude"), ominous brass interludes ("Hunter Vessel"), and even haunting Japanese Noh singing ("Holographic Entrypoint"). Although DRAWING RESTRAINT 9 may perplex some listeners, those patient enough to follow Bjork down almost any path will find plenty to appreciate here.
