Sugarcubes - Stick Around For Joy - 1991

Two covers again on this one. Print one side,  flip it over, and print the other side.  I couldn't decide the best way to do it with Just the single cover.  I think they both look pretty sweet.  B-sides all included, but no mixes, as I'm saving those for It's It.

Anyway, this album came out at the end of my freshman year, or beginning of my sophomore year in college.  But, I didn't start listening to Sugarcubes until It's It.  It's It is plug full of fabulous remixes (will post that at a later date, as there are dozens of hidden mixes released across a variety of media to consolidate.)  So, I got that, and felt that I HAD to go back and get the original albums.  Of the three albums, Stick Around For Joy was by far the best.

I love Bjork's vocals, the melodies are fantastic, the music is upbeat and happy, the sound is very Indie.  But, that guy.  I hate that guy's freeking stupid ass vocals that seem disjointed and stupid mixed in with the music.  It's out of place.  OF COURSE, many of you will disagree with me on this point, and I understand, feel free to tell me.  It's just my opinion that I don't like him.

Walkabout is the best, followed by Hit then Leash Called Love.  The singles, obviously.  But, I also LOVE the Carpenters cover song too, only wish it was a studio recording.

  1. You are very right about the malevoice in Sugarcubes songs.. it's irritating...
    I found your blog when you already left.. I really hope you can come back here every now and then as you showed love for music, knowledge and competence about discographies..
    And those ver well modified covers! (I'd like to know what software you usually use for them)...
    I litterally sacked your blog even though I already owned most of them but the chance to have all the b sides compiled per every album is priceless.. so I guess the least I can do is to thank you...
    I hope you're doing well
