Bjork - Volta - Atlantic

Bjork's new album Volta is one of the year's most innovative and exotic new releases. Ever since her days as the frontwoman for The Sugarcubes, Bjork has been one of pop music's most enigmatic and other worldly artists, and her solo career has confirmed that even more. Volta hearkens back to the sound of Bjork's earlier solo work yet still has some of the experimental verve of her albums like Vespertine and Medulla.

On Volta, Bjork collaborates with Timbaland, Antony Hegarty of Antony & The Johnsons, Konono No. 1, drummer Brian Chippendale, Toumani Diabate and an all-female Icelandic brass section.

Challenging and creative, Bjork once again proves why she commands and deserves such great respect as an artist/musician who never compromises her muse for anything less than an engaging sound and vision.
