The Icelandic pixie with the big voice returns with her sparsest record to date, a collection based almost entirely on vocal tracks. Only a piano or drum accentuates the mesmerizing words and incantations of Björk and guests such as Mike Patton and the Roots’ awesome beatboxer Rahzel. Some fans may complain that Björk has ventured too far into weirdness, but she’s been doing that since 1997’s Homogenic. Medulla will alienate some of her fans even more, but it proves that Björk shows no signs of slowing down creatively.
