The Triumph of a Broken Heart
This is a pretty hard album to review because others have expressed better what I don't think I can express as well about the experience that Vulnicura Strings is. I'll sum it up in short: Björk has made the already heart-wrenching Vulnicura even more chilling, haunting, desolate, and lonely. Without the electronics, with strings only, this is Björk's first-ever "acoustic" album/companion piece, as "stripped" as an album this raw in emotion can be.
This is, simply, haunting as hell, "one. feeling. at a. time."
