Life's Too Good, released in April 1988, was the first album by the Icelandic
alternative rock-pop band The Sugarcubes, which brought fame to lead vocalist
Björk. Through the first single, "Birthday", the Sugarcubes received attention
in Europe and the United States. Emerging from the ashes of K.U.K.L and signed
to One Little Indian in 1987, over the next six years The Sugarcubes achieved an
unprecedented level of success for an Icelandic band.
It’s sometimes hard to recall now just how much of an impact The Sugarcubes
debut single ‘Birthday’ made when its magical off-kilter melody first hit the
airwaves via John Peel’s show in the later part of 1987 (taking the number one
spot in his ‘Festive 50’ that year). In particular, the song’s extraordinary
singer/ narrator, Björk was the subject of much wild speculation in the UK music
press. “Can she possibly be human?” wondered Melody Maker’s foaming Single of
the Week review (repeated in NME). “A record of debilitating beauty,” it
continued. “Nothing this year has had us more thoroughly vanquished.”
"With strong songs built around Bjork Gudmundsdottir's piercing, striking
voice, this record lived up to all the advance hype. With songs like "Birthday"
and "Motorcrash," this is the perfect introduction to the 'Cubes." -John
