"Sonic Symbolism is a podcast worth listening to, showing an insight of Björk’s life and the beauty behind her musical thought process. She is a force to be reckoned with."

Hannah Verdier • The Guardian Sep 8, 2022

"...could come across as pretentious, but she’s just so lovable, floaty and otherworldly that she manages to pull it off. From singing on her cold journey to school to sitting in a steam room with Brian Eno, she has a lot of stories, too."

Rachel Syme • New Yorker Sep 2, 2022

"serving as a whimsical guide through her musical mind. This is a rare chance to listen in as one of the most mysterious and mystical artists working today explains herself—but never so clearly as to totally unravel her own mythology. Björk keeps it weird; would you have it any other way?"

Rich Juzwiak • Jezebel Sep 1, 2022

"She shows that flair for vivid metaphors and surprising connections on Sonic Symbolism...It’s such a joy to just hear her describe things. Flair or no flair, the Björk on Sonic Symbolism is for the most part subdued, clear, and adept at articulating the rationale behind her most alien of sounds...the podcast is the perfect medium for Björk’s brand of public speaking—here she isn’t edited down to just the funny parts, and in fact those funny parts (while often hilarious) seem less outlandish in the greater context in which they’re used to illustrate more grounded points. Because Björk’s albums were reflections of where she was in life, the podcast doubles as a memoir, but one with limitations."
