Lots of great choices here and a few I should check out. Second anything by Kraftwerk, Public Enemy (esp FoABP), B-52s (esp. Whammy!) and PiL.

And The Dreaming: One of Björk's fave albums.
It was purportedly the closest her record label, EMI had come to returning an artist’s recording. Speaking in hindsight, Bush observed how this was her "she’s gone mad" album.
Yup. One batshit-crazy album but pure genius
Great 30th anniversary overview of the album here
I also have to give a shout-out to The Dreaming. At the time, I assumed it was a result of her working with Peter Gabriel on the 'melty-face album.'

I also thought Phil Collins was on it with all those gated drums.

Also, as for "Get Out of my House" being inspired by "The Shining", I felt it works better as a really effed up relationship, ...and by house I don't mean a physical house, but just the woman's entire existance.
