I've been listening to this album for the past week and although I like "If I Had A Heart" and "Concrete Walls", I miss the intensity of Karin and Olof together. Granted, this is a side project. But putting this into consideration, she could have strayed farther away from their signature sound, just so people like me wouldn't be comparing it to every Knife album. It is what it is, I suppose. HALF of The Knife... HALF full.

anyways, the video for "When I Grow Up" is nuts.

Pretty much agree. But better half The Knife than no Knife at all...

Too similar to the knife....makes me think it might have been better as a full knife record, but I still think it is awesome.
