Unhappy with Crystalline

The first single from Bjork's Biophilia is called Crystalline and it's a disappointment.

I hear nothing original. She was doing glass musicboxes ten years ago, except this one is called a gameleste. This is that tinkly, childlike sound (decorating a thin melody) with the current dubstep trend slapped on. The artwork is overtly Bjorkian, like a a hybrid of earlier images.

I so want to like this, but I don't really need to play it again. Buy it and let me know how you feel! iTunes US / iTunes UK
