Bjork.

I know it's the wrong forum, I just wanted to have people's opinions on her... via poll.

Recently, really gotten into her music, I think she's amazing, interesting lyrics, voice, music videos, the lot, she's fresh and exciting.

So... what do you guys think of her?

I like Björk. I don't listen to her that often, but I've got her 2002 Greatest Hits album, and several tracks from it (All Is Full Of Love, Pagan Poetry, Hyperballad, Jóga) are in my most played playlist in Winamp.

I'm a psychosomatic sister running around without a leash.

She's good but I can only listen so long before her voice begins to grate on me.

I think she should have invested in elecution lessions myself, but she is highly creative and talented.

She is also a little mad, wich tends to help.

English lessons is something that comes to mind.

I am so important I feel the need to let it be known like a liberal discovering the internets for the first time. Uh hur hur hur. I also wash myself with a rag on a stick.

where's the middle ground option? I guess she's quite good, more original than most.

I might post a more meaningful insight into just how much I love Bjork and her music, but not right now.

Though that signed photo looks nice on my wall.

She does stuff like that a lot

Awesome Lady, I love her stuff and she uses some really nice clean riffs that just fit near on anywhere in a set and some of her lyrics - nutty Icelander, Respects

I first heard of B York on 20/20 dateline.. it was about some crazy psycho who sent her some package that woulda sprayed acid on her or something..

He committed suicide on tape..

It was fucking disturbing, but anyway.. just my 2 cents

I love Björk! Most of my friends can't stand her but a large portion of my car music is dedicated to her and my friends have to put up with it when they ask for a ride.

I like Bjork. She has such a diverse range of styles which is cool and her videos are way cool, especially the ones directed by Michel Gondry

Her work with the Sugarcubes was good, her debut solo album was great, the follow up to that was so-so, I kind of gave up listening around then.

Picked up her last album after seeing everyone rant and rave about how good it was only to find it a steaming pretentious pile of poop.

The whole 'mad as a box of frogs' act also annoys me.
