Hmmm...The difference is the enigneering . I might be friends with the Electra team (or was at one time) but gone is the edge on the vocals, lost is the glistening keyboards, it has this unearthly rock archival feel to it, like they all said, f*** it, put the tracks on wax and let's get out of here.But you see, as a personal fan,of Bjork and the band, I adore this album. I can't get it out of my CD player,so I crank it up,even with my frail Pillipine wife in the car. So I get it, it is less abrasive somehow than HereTodayomorrowNextweek.But I am not the adversary you thought I was, just another musician with a voice.. I just got tired of following mydestiny through someone else's eyes. So The Sugarcubes have fallen into Rock'n' Roll history.And I continue to fall through the cracks of stardom. And I like Bjork better as a blonde.

the Sugarcubes were one of the defining groups of alternative in the latter 80s! Their third & final studio album is a masterpiece, featuring more of Bjork's vocal talents! Deserves a seven star rating! Thanx!

A fitting crescendo for what would be The Sugarcubes' final encore, Stick Around For Joy is a celebration of sound, spirit and champagne-poppin' fun. It would also pre-empt Björk's "debut" to world mega-stardom. Unlike its wildly alternative predecessors, Joy is a delightful romp into more mainstream pop. Indeed, the album's biggest single, "Hit", was made to be just that with a chorus as catchy as anything Madonna or Britney Spears ever threw together on the assembly line. However, even with such airy upbeat tracks as "Hit", "Vitamin" and "Walkabout", Joy definitely does not lack the darker edge or musical complexity present in all The Sugarcubes' work. The opening track "Gold" conveys the determined lust and greed one has toward fortune, even to the point where Einar (you know you love him) insanely growls, "Dig bloody fingers / Dig!"

Overall, Stick Around For Joy is a very good album and quite underrated in its entertainment value to fans of modern pop. The production is almost impeccable (and at times even a bit overproduced), thanks to veteran artist/producer Paul Fox, who's other credits include everyone from XTC to Grant Lee Buffalo. Major props to Sigtryggur Balsuresson (just call him "Sig") as well, for laying down the unbelievable percussion that accentuates the entire album (literally some of the best drumming ever on a pop record). Björk's vocals are in top form here (witness her belt out the third chorus of "Gold") and her delivery keeps fresh even upon a hundred listens. Unfortunately, the "Einar Factor" is strong on this album, almost as if he knew this would be his last time to spout as many annoying non sequiturs as inhumanly possible. However, as any fan of The Sugarcubes (or Björk, for that matter) knows, Einar is either to be loved or to be tolerated. I have always opted for the latter.

The music on the last Sugarcubes release with brand new songs did not change its essence, with the B-52's like irony and retro-fashion style and attitude, featuring Einar's ¨raps¨ and Björk's powerful, impressive vocals, but in some ways they came with an updated unique sound, with more fun and appearent ¨joy¨ that in his classic debut album, ¨Life's Too Good¨, but the cuts on it remain under their best sounds with stronger drum beats and indie-rock-dancehall smash cuts like the passionate ¨Hit¨ and ¨Leash Called Love¨, besides ¨Gold¨ and the should-have-been-commercially-released-cute-cut ¨Walkabout¨.
Highly recommended: necessary.

I know that many people are not big fans of The Sugarcubes, and for this I am glad. They are not a really publicized or mainstream group. And of the few people out there who ARE Sugarcubes fans, there are few who actually appreciate this album. Many find that it's too much pop and not enough rock or that it's a departure from the Cubes' formula. I don't care about any of that. All I know is that this is the best album from one of the best 80's groups. It's the sound of the era and it is the pride of Iceland.

This album is so misunderstood. It's all about fun. "Leash Called Love" is a great pop song. Along with the single "Hit" and "Gold". The band does not sound as excited as on their debut but i dare you to put "Vitamin" on without smiling. And "Chihuahua" though a throwaway ending has Bjork sounding extra cute. It's not essential but it's not the disappointing Here Today Tomorrow Next Week.

With brilliant and classic songs like Hit, Leash Called Love, Walkabout, and...well, every song, you couldn't ask for more! This last album is a classic bit of the Sugarcubes' genius, that will leave you yearning more of their music! Buy it, no matter how some misjudge it by comparing it to their other albums! Satisfaction is an obvious guarantee.;)

I love this album. I think it's the epitome (epitomy) of Bjork and The Sugarcubes at their zenith. That's all I can say. Stick around for the joy.
