Debut LP

Debut is the first studio album by Icelandic recording artist Björk, It was produced by Björk with artist Nellee Hooper and was Björk's first recording following the dissolution of her previous band, The Sugarcubes. The album departed from the rock style of her previous work and drew from an eclectic variety of styles, including electronic pop, house music, jazz and trip hop. Debut received critical acclaim from British music critics,. It exceeded sales expectations, charting at number two in Iceland, three in the United Kingdom, and 61 in the US. It was certified gold in Canada and platinum in the US, where it remains Björk's bestselling album. Debut is widely regarded as one of the greatest albums of 1993 and the 1990s in general. In 2013, John Hamilton of Idolator called the album "highly influential", and wrote "in spite of its advancing age, Debut's futurism has aged exquisitely." The album has also been credited as one of the first albums to introduce electronic music into mainstream pop. Stereogum's Tom Breihan wrote: "House music didn't quite have critical respect before Björk came along, and plenty of American writers didn't know what to make of the sound of Debut when it came out." At the 1994 Grammy Awards, Michel Gondry's music video for 'Human Behavior' was nominated for 'Best Short Form Music Video', then at the 1994 Brit Awards, Björk won awards for 'Best Newcomer' and 'Best International Female'.
