H is for Homogenic.
I would argue that this is one of the best albums ever made, by anyone.
Exhibit A, the wonderful, beautiful and lush Bachelorette.
It is probably the most consistent of her albums; Debut leapt all over the place musically, and Post threw in curve balls like It’s Oh So Quiet, but Homogenic really feels like a complete, fully realised body of work, to be enjoyed as a whole album.
The album is such a wonderful soundscape; big and vast and alien with new spaces to explore and sonic treats to soak in at every turn. I always imagined it would make an amazing soundtrack to an anime movie.
