  1. 9.0 |   The Line Of Best Fit

    Sees Björk restructuring an already phenomenal work of art and creating an even more desolate mood than the phenomenal Vulnicura

  2. 9.0 |   Gig Soup

    It is surprisingly far more intense, by giving Björk’s tormented vocals more space, in a closer mic recorded version

  8. 7.0 |   Uncut

    A satisfying, if not earth-shattering, experiment. Print edition only

  9. 6.8 |   Pitchfork

    It's unlikely that Vulnicura Strings will replace anyone's original copy of the record—its existence feels more symbolic than anything else

  10. 6.0 |   Spectrum Culture

    Vulnicura Strings is pale and anemic in comparison to its parent album
