ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Pursuit of Happiness is the thirteenth album from Arthur Loves Plastic and was initially released in 2006. The album was pulled from distribution at the request of one of the artists remixed. Amazon.com initially refused to stock the 2006 edition because the "cover art goes beyond what (they are) willing to accept". This re-release contains a bonus track and a more family-friendly cover, with the disputed tracks removed.

Pursuit of Happiness won the 2006 Wammie for Best Recording in the Electronica Category.

REVIEWS of 2006 edition

"Fusing a combination of electro rock, pop and sassy vocals...there's something quite engaging that lulls you in like a siren and then grabs you round the throat. Opening with "Alone Till the Day I Die", the first thing you notice is the vocals. They have that sassy almost Ertha Kitt quality to them. In fact there's a lot that reminds me of Shirley Bassey..." -- Indie Launchpad

"We were excited from the moment we saw the cover art because it held the promise of exploration of desire and the shadowy side of our nature. ALP did not disappoint. Pursuit of Happiness is a collection of expansive auditory landscapes -- ranging from down tempo to dance-floor ready -- cleverly woven together by the musical genius that is Bev Stanton. All songs are richly layered with synthesizers and bass lines analogous to 80's industrial synth-pop acts like Skinny Puppy and Depeche Mode. The naughty samples and occasional vocals by Lisa Moscatiello or Heather Heimbuch are icing on this dark delicious electronic cake." -- Church of Girl

"[F]rom the 70 albums I've reviewed so far since we re-opened this webzine, I think 'Pursuit of Happiness' is the best one yet... If you like your electronic music to be varied and go way beyond what you hear in the clubs every weekend, then Arthur Loves Plastic is a good alternative." -- Past and Present Webzine

"Another superb, self-released electronic delight" -- Curve Magazine

" Fortunately, it seems to be Ms Stanton's karmic fate to repay society by releasing really good music...The title track is a solid vocal song reminiscent of great 80’s acts like Propaganda, and you know how much I loves me some 80's music. "Pursuit of Happiness" leads into the very pretty "Just for the Night", and when you throw in the album closer "Play Misty", you've got my three favorite tracks on the album."-- The Estrogenius Radio blog

"It's another fine record by Bev Stanton." -- anna maria stjärnell, collectedsounds.com

"such beautiful grooves and danceyness...and lovely and honest vocals/lyrics"
-- Tommy T, Cyberage radio, KUNM
