    well, Björk has some really weird albums like Medulla, Biophilia, Vulnicura and Utopia where you can’t really find a place to label it because it’s too different. In general she would have entenred in dance/electronic. But now she’s using classical music and messing everything up. Only if folktronica was a thing and could find a field for it she would slay there!

    While “new-age” music can be difficult to define, journalist Steven Rea described the genre as “music that is acoustic, electronic, jazzy, folky and incorporates classical and pop elements, Eastern and Latin influences, exotic instrumentation and environmental sound effects.”

    It seems to me like most of Björk’s albums would fit in either Best Dance/Electronic Album or Best New Age Album.

    Most of the people vying for the Alternative Album award, though, make rock or pop-rock music, and as such, I think those albums should be shifted there to allow for less category fraud and to make the awards more competitive. If any offshoot of rock needs a separate album category, it’s metal.

    I think the new definition for the category should reduce fraud.
