Top 30 albums of the year - n°2 Life’s Too Good

Melody Maker, 24 décembre 1988

Since Birthday scooped Single Of The Year in last year’s MM Critics’ Poll, Life’s Too Good was one of the most eagerly awaited debut albums in living memory. Miraculously, it lived up to all exceptations - furiously funny, as surreal as their party-punk live show, this was cheeky kaleidoscopic pop, the tension between Björk’s wicked divinity and Einar’s arty antagonism unravelling ludicrous dramas across the most kinetic and catholic of musics.
