About this album

“I felt the album was the other half of Debut, so it made sense to call it Post — before and after kinda thing. … I was very aware of it at the time that I needed to be musically promiscuous and have almost every song different mood/style and so on. The picture on the cover is me on Piccadilly Circus (Times Square of London) too excited, too many things, Bright Lights Big City kinda thing, and me eager to consume. So my musical heart was scattered at the time and I wanted the album to show that.”

Post is the second studio album by Icelandic singer-songwriter/musician Björk. It was released in June of 1995. The album was produced in conjunction with Nellee Hooper, Tricky, Graham Massey of 808 State, and electronic music producer Howie B. Building on the success of her previous album Debut, Björk continued to pursue different sounds, taking particular interest in dance and techno. Production by Tricky and Howie B also provided trip hop-like sounds on tracks like “Possibly Maybe”. It was these producers’ influence that gave Björk impetus to create material like the storming “Army of Me” and “Enjoy”.However, Björk had not lost her old fascination with Hollywood-style numbers. Her cover of the Betty Hutton track “Blow a Fuse”, retitled “It’s Oh So Quiet”, became one of Björk’s most well-known moments. After “Army of Me” reached the UK top 10, and the subsequent release of “Isobel” (which did less well), One Little Indian scheduled “It’s Oh So Quiet” as a novelty Christmas hit. To their surprise, it reached number four in December 1995; it was even later spoofed by The Smurfs.

    I must have been 14 years old, and I borrowed this from the local library. My introduction to real music, electronic, eclectic, worldly, weird. This and Portishead is basically the source of my entire record collection... go figure the effect this had on me!

    Not her best but the b-sides of this album are surely the best along with Vespertine.
