I really like working this kind of session. It’s more open-minded. You can sometimes get locked into things, like with these guitar groups who are so prejudiced, like you’ve got to study gui-tar for ten years before you can make a blues album. But with Björk, if it sounds good, it’s good.

She’ll go, ’Can you make the bass line more furry ?’... It’s always poetic, which is good, because if she tells you exactly what to do, you’re more like an engineer. This way, you get to create atmospheres too.
