  • Summary: Enlisted as composer for boyfriend Matthew Barney's latest experimental film (which loosely concerns whales and Japan), Bjork responded with a largely instrumental score. Will Oldham guests.

  1. It’s certainly another step forwards and upwards for one of our only real musically emotional geniuses.
  2. An album that's inspiring in its ambition.
  3. This isn't always an easy record - it demands stillness and patience from the listener, but it is never less than fascinating and frequently breathtakingly beautiful.
  4. A couple of really cool parts, and the rest I don't feel so bad for forgetting.
  5. Björk’s biggest drawback, then, is that while “Holographic Entrypoint” is an enlightening rarity, most of Björk’s fans will find it boring. Very, very boring.

    Haunting as the results may be, they are distinctly lacking in Bjork's own musical personality and her greatest asset: her inimitable voice. [8 Sep 2005, p.112]

    Children moan, accordions groan and Bjork's disembodied voice occasionally growls into earshot. [Sep 2005, p.114]

    This album is beautiful, haunting, powerful, and most of all, essentially Bjork. The best song is Storm by far.

    Abstract ,this soundtrack creates the space , which is set to be never covered by any human being. It takes an effort to understand, but in Abstract ,this soundtrack creates the space , which is set to be never covered by any human being. It takes an effort to understand, but in return it rips you out of this world, at least for 11 tracks of it. Expand

    Bjork's soundtrack is very admirable work. This is a side project, so its all experimental . Those expecting Bjork maybe be Bjork's soundtrack is very admirable work. This is a side project, so its all experimental . Those expecting Bjork maybe be dissappointed, she only appears in a few tracks. I would reccommend this to fans only. Very similiar to "Medulla".

    It's almost a voiceless record, but Bjork's presence is still very recognizable. It proves how much she's great even as a composer.
