Comments about Like someone in love:

I think Pedro was talking about the COVER of the album. Not the album itself... Thanks for the essay though.

To Pedro in Portugal:

"Debut" is so not Björk? Really? I would submit that Björk is precisely "Debut," and that almost everything since has been her own personal deconstruction.

If Björk had begun by doing the stuff she's been doing since, say, 1998, I daresay her only following would be found in small, obscure pockets outside the US.

She most certainly would never have ascended to being a household name from works like "Medulla" and such. Never.

No, Björk exists directly due to her work with the Cubes, and the meteoritic impact of "Debut" with the following "Post". These years are her defining, formative patterns. The foundation, if you will.

All the rest of her work is fairly disposable.

I love Bj and I know she likes the jazz standards a lot, but this version is awful... Better listen Gling Glo to check her jazzy felling.

I thought this was a Noel Coward song originally?
