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.
