Gusgus' first (slightly retooled) album is their best by a country mile.
The first full length masterpiece on this album is Gun, and what an opener, with growling drum loops put through distortion and Daniel Agust's pitch perfect delivery (hard to believe he represented Iceland in the Eurovision Song Contest!). The song follows a traditional Gusgus structure with vocals frontloaded and then a backend reserved for experimentation with the distortion box and parts fading in and out. This sublime starter is followed by Believe which has become a mainstay of the Gusgus live set, and with good reason. Then, one of the highlights of the album, Polyesterday - a great pun, more remarkable because of the fact that these guys' second language is English.
I could go on and talk about every track with admiration as I have these opening three. However, I will reserve my praise for the penultimate full track, Purple, which is something which Biggi Veira and Magnus Gudmunsson did before they were part of Gusgus - a great track sure to fill the floor at any disco, even 14 or 15 years after it was made - timeless. Try and get the 2 CD version with the remixes. There you get some cracking remixes of Believe, the Sasha vs the Light version of Purple (which is a great remix) and the Polydistortion instrumental, which is Polyesterday with no vocals and more emphasis on the drums with heavy distortion.
