Her voice always sucked or annoyed for its best part - but that's the beauty of it. It is just amazing how Bjork can actually repeat herself musically and always sounding different. With every next album she pushed away the boundaries, whether her own or musically speaking, putting together producers and musicians alike that usually bare absolutely zero resemblance among themselves; Anthony, Timbaland, Mark Bell, various brass sections, etc.

'Volta' is another masterpiece and many saying so aren't exaggerating. Of course, it all depends, how much you truly admire Bjork's twisted electronics without feeling endangered by her usual vocal acrobatics.
