Could be her best album. At other albums, you (me)can allways hear plain electronicA arrangements in background, even if they're actually real instruments. That coloured feel... Here, there is no such distraction. Basically Bjork, and less invasive collaborators. And Bjork is all you want!

This is by far the best way to experience all the vocal layers and effects contained in this album. One of the best regarding surround music.

[To me, so far, as there isn't much news about a genuinely "new" Medulla release, it looks like the 2016 double vinyl pressing of Medulla is being sold as a 2020 release. Available info is scant / weird.]

And if I'm wrong . . . is this new 2020 Medulla release only available in the US then? Will it come to the UK? It's strange One Little Indian aren't offering it. I hope this means other Bjork albums will finally have the heavy vinyl / 45rpm treatment they deserve.

It might be early days to remark on this "2020" Medulla release, but I don't get it.

A double Medulla vinyl for 2020 is not listed on the One Little Indian www, I can't see it on Amazon UK or Amazon com. Perhaps it is a mistake? It could be the 2016 release pretending to be 2020?

The photos of the liner notes seem matte, but the copy I received is glossy. Can anyone with a copy from OLI confirm? I'm worried I received a bootleg.

A lovely album.

A KEY track for me is Triumph of a Heart. Some sections of the song have weird noises, all jiving and grooving (and all still created by human voice, collected from voice specialists all over the world); these sections make you laugh with pure joy because of their deliberate alieneity (!).

Humour is a key element to Bjork's expression and Triumph of a Heart is a good example of it. This is very unusual in music - to make you gut-laugh so spontaneously: not because of the lyrics, but the very SOUND (Ligeti is another example of this). Yet humour is a fundamental aspect of being human, so full credit to Bjork for presenting an abundance of humour through her sound-art.
