A wonderful album! Top five Bjork album right here. A post punk/alternative rock album with Bjork on vocals, what's not to like? She rocks. Wish they had at least one comeback album later in her career.

Starts off really strong, particularly with the first three tracks, but drops off a bit afterward. Still a quality album, I really can't get enough of Bjork's style and voice!

Overall a good album, lyrically this is pretty abstract at times, but I can still get a grasp on the basic concepts (I think). I have absolutely no idea what "delicious demon" is supposed to mean though. Bjork's vocals are phenomenal (particularly on the track birthday), I'm really looking forward to this project now. I like how the music has some variety to it, but at times it's a little jarring, not a fan of the transition from traitor to motorcrash, though I enjoyed both songs. I find the beginning and ending of this album to be the best, but I find it drags quite a bit in the middle. I wouldn't call this a phenomenal album, but it is promising, and I'm looking forward to hearing the next two of The Sugarcubes' albums.

If only every song here were as good as Birthday. Bjork doesn't even sound human on this album. She is ethereal and beyond the limits of human capability with that voice. I can't help but think The Sugarcubes were really into Siouxsie and the Banshees. There are lot of similarities here.
