This interesting nugget from even before the days of the Sugarcubes got an opportunistic re-release after Björk became world-famous. Simply put, it's cabaret jazz with a piano trio, sung mostly in Icelandic. Despite the surreal effect the language creates to English listeners, the various styles of jazz here all suit Björk's voice admirably. Essential for fans, an interesting curiosity for the casual listener.
