A question to Bjork fans

Bjork's singing and shrieking used to get on my nerves a lot. Then I bought "Post" and from the first listen, something just clicked, and now I can't stop listening to her.

Now I'm just wondering whether the stuff she did with Sugarcubes before she went solo is worth investigating, and whether her first album ("Debut"?) is any good.

Sugarcubes are good, much more poppy.

Debut is almost worth the price for HUMAN BEHAVIOR alone. I don't like the album as much, it's much more dance oriented. But if you like Dance beats or you can find the CD used, then I would pick it up.

Debut I love even more than Post.

Its a beautifully funky and bloody cool album. You gotta get it!

Bjork is the coolest rock chick on the planet

Debut is every bit as good as Post in my opinion. i have never been able to decide which i like better. If you liked Post, you shouldn't be disappointed with Debut.

I've bought two Sugarcubes albums. One of them i never gave a second listen to, the other was very good and has some of their best songs on it. I can't remember the name, but look for the one that has the songs "Birthday" and "Motorcrash" on it. (It also has some funky drawings on the cover with a neon green (or pink) background).

I love all of Bjork's work, but I have to admit a love for her earlier work more.

I love "Big Time Sensuality" probably the best out of all of her songs.

And even though most of them had gone under, their ignorance had confused Roy, making him wonder whether the things he had striven to learn, and thought of as 'culture,' were irrelevant. Everything was supposed to be the same: commercials, Beethoven's late quartets, pop records, shopfronts, Freud, multi-coloured hair. Greatness, comparison, value, depth: gone, gone, gone. Anything could give some pleasure; he saw that. But not everything provided the sustenance of a deeper understanding." - Hanif Kureishi, Love in a Blue Time

I really like Bjork's music and personally think that Debut is better than Post the songs are all very nice I especially love Human Behaviour, Venus as a boy, Violently happy and Play dead.......

Now the Sugarcubes stuff is great too and I like this a lot more than her solo stuff, like someone said previously it is very poppy and not really as techno/electronic sounding....Their first album is probably the best one and it is called 'Lifes to good' and it is the one with the bright green cover and if you are going to get this one make sure you try and get the one with the bonus re-mix tracks on it as the remix of their song 'Deus' on this is excellent and I think is better than the original. The sugarcubes also put out another album called 'Stick around for joy' which is also very good and they released a re-mix album and then a greatest hits album- I would probably recommend this one for you- it has all of the good songs on it, its called 'The Great Cross over potential', but anyway maybe try downloading some of these songs first of the sugarcubes to see if you like them....

The Sugarcubes are definately worth checking out. I love "Life´s too good". It´s by far my favorite Sugarcubes album. "Today here, tomorrow next week" was a bit of a flop, but "Stick around for joy" is great as well. But I also like some of their even older stuff, like Kukl. That was the band Björk was in before she joined the Sugarcubes. Very spuky stuff.
