5.0 out of 5 stars 80s Masterpiece 26 Aug 2003
Format:Audio CD
Trawl through the history of Bjork and you'll get to the Sugarcubes, from whom this is their best (and debut) album - a fun album, bouncier than an inflatable castle which rips along your stereo in a joyous 30 minute frenzy.
Of course, being Bjork, its a quirky affair but lacks any semblence of the overblown pomposity of her character now. In short this is laugh out loud stuff. Some times you feel something has been lost in the translation (The utterly bizarre 'Birthday') but mostly its just stupid stories, ranging from a woman tempting a naked man off her roof with some strawberry cake to a description of God, whose most remarkable features are his quiff and sideburns. This is one of the most charismatic records of its decade and as upbeat as you can get. And with a continual sex subtext and the pop version of The Shamen's Mr C, what more can you ask for. Put it on and have a smile. Dare you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sensational! 19 Aug 2006
By Muso
Format:Audio CD
Listened to this for the first time in a long time recently and have to admit it still sounds as fresh as it did when it first came out. Put it quite simply there are no weak tracks on this album. 'Motorcrash' and 'Birthday' are classics and 'Blue Eyed Pop' being poptastic! For anyone who has never heard The 'cubes then get a copy of all their albums as they were underrated at the time although it made Bjork a superstar!

5.0 out of 5 stars What a sound! 16 Jan 2002
Format:Audio CD
I first saw The Sugarcubes on the Chart Show in about 1985, I fell in love with Bjorks voice. Its completely unique, not to everyones taste but I loved it! I bought this LP soon after, and I made all my friends listen to it. They hated it. My favourite track is by far "Cold Sweat", its slow and quite sleazy with a sexy sound. "Birthday" was the first track I'd ever heard, so I do have a soft spot for it. "Delicious Demon" is fun and funky, "Deus" is quite dark, the lyrics don't make much sense, in fact the whole albumn is quite surreal. Bjork is one of my favourite female artists, thankgod for the crazy chick from Iceland!

5.0 out of 5 stars Album is too good 10 Dec 2003
Format:Audio CD
'Life is too good' is a masterpiece and definatly best work to come from the Sugarcubes. To the listener it brings an interesting combination between commercial pop, jazz, echoes from the Icelandic punk-scene where all the band-members have their roots and inimitable vocalizations from both Björk and Einar. With such Punky songs like 'Traitor' and 'Sick for Toys' to the fantastic 'Birthday' this album is simply a fundamental album for any punk/Bjork fan - i doubt you'd be disappointed.

I'd forgotten about this album until I was recently trawling through Last.fm for gems. And what a gem this is! Deus is absolutely delightful if somewhat tongue in cheek, playing fast and loose with theology. Birthday is sublime. Sick for Toys utterly beguiling.

I'm not a Bjork fan. But this early work is absolutely wonderful still, aging disgracefully. Buy it. Now.
