Following the massive success of both Debut and Post was always going to be tough. Whilst these albums were full of variety covering a wide range of emotions, Bjork with Homogenic provided her most challenging work to date, and also her darkest.

In the years following Post, up to the release of Homogenic, Bjork experienced a failed relationship with the drum ‘n’ bass specialist Goldie, had a punch-up with a journalist in Bangkok and suffered from a crazed stalker who tried to send a mail bomb to her home in London, and who subsequently shot himself in the face whilst Bjork videos were playing in the background and a sheet of white paper with one of her lyrics was hung behind him in order to be splattered with the blood. Artsy.
