Fever Ray Will End Up on the Year End

Those familiar with the Knife might not find anything peculiar about Fever Ray. And at first, while listening over Karin's solo debut that was drafted away from her brother's more techno bent, it was hard for me to find anything here that strayed to far from the Knife's inverse-electronica. But then again, after multiple listens, asome views of her videos, and some reading over her words about this process, I've come to the conclusion that as Fever Ray, Karin is her own singular beast. Something that will end up on my year end list. This album is that unique....or....ahem...revolutionary. Too bad given all the hoopla,Volta, couldn't touch me the same way.
