Released in Great Britain in early 1983 this album was the bands first international release. It contains the hit “Garden Party” which crossed over into pop charts around the world. The album was first released in Iceland in late 1982 as MEZZOFORTE4, with a different cover. For the international release the title was changed to Surprise Surprise and the record company decided to use the cover from the bands previous album “Thvilikt og annad eins” which was only released in Iceland.
