Musically the songs are all stirring emotionally.  Technically the music is all top class as usually is the case with Bjork.  What she manages to do it not only make it technically sound and ambitious, but also will dredge up all kinds of feelings in the listener.  Dense stuff that will take a few listens just to scratch the surface of understanding what she is attempting to do and communicate.
