    O álbum mais fraco e sem graça da Björk já feito, consegue ser pior que até o Biophilia. Uma verdadeira superestimação em um álbum tão ruim cujo ponto alto é apenas Pagan Poetry. Tantos álbuns melhores feitos pela Björk para terem essa altíssima nota e o Vespertine é quem recebe, uma verdadeira vergonha.

    With Vespertine, Bjork has constructed a whispering wall of wonders, and instead of forcing everyone out, has invited the world to look through the cracks.
  2. 1997's Homogenic, also a mixture of heavy beats and strings, was not as varied or complete as this album, and while Selmasongs, last year's soundtrack to "Dancer in the Dark" (in which Björk starred), was lovely in its own sweeping, cinematic way, Björk has surpassed herself with this new work.
  3. Björk continues to mine the fine line of minimalist lushness that her last album gave birth to; with tiny, crackling, skittery beats weaving open-toned ambient beds in which her breathy, pushed-forward vocals lithely lay, the closeness and drama of her every syllable commanding attention.
