5.0 out of 5 stars ''If I had a voice I would sing'' 24 Jan 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is haunting, evocative stuff. Karin Dreijer Andersson digitally manipulates her voice throughout the album to sound sluggish and weary, high and low-pitched, but occasionally as on 'When I Grow Up', her real and strikingly beautiful voice pierces through the murk and establishes an innovative use of the voice as instrument.

The lyrics are abstract as though they are constructed dream-like, and the line 'We talk about love, we talk about dishwasher tablets, illness and we dream about heaven' in the song 'Seven' becomes something deeply profound and tragic.

Initially the songs blend together but subsequent listens reveal layers of complexity perhaps disguised by the mid-tempo pace of the album. Unlike The Knife's more danceable pulsing beats from 'Silent Shout', this is slower, more meditative, but ultimately just as eerie and starved of emotion. If anything the cold and hollow synths and percussion here betray a sense of sadness and a search for something tangibly human. 'Dry and Dusty' ends with the line 'And I long for every moment' which to me is as emotionally telling and relatable as it is foreboding and isolating.

I didn't feel disturbed by this music as much as I felt comforted, because the detachment on display tells me there's not just 'happy' or 'depressing' music, there's a whole spectrum of emotions present in these ten tracks that express much more than you would expect. This is best summed up by 'Keep The Streets Empty For Me' and it's final line, 'Uncover our heads and reveal our souls', and here Dreijer Andersson does just that.

5.0 out of 5 stars Astonishing and accomplished. 23 Dec 2009
By Paul Price TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:MP3 Download
This truly is an amazing album. An intricate and textured tapestry of electronic soundscapes, so rich yet at times sparse its as if synth didnt happen till now.
Think Depeche Mode crossed with Portishead with a sprinkiling of Joy Division and Heaven 17 and your not even close! But on the right tracks. Buy it it will enrich your life forever more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent and Mysterious 24 Jan 2009
Format:MP3 Download|Verified Purchase
This is the debut album from Fever Ray (she's Karin Dreijer Andersson). A great and evocative voice, Karin is in tune and here brings your sound (a style alike The Knife), some more natural, a eletronic world music, the lyrics are like stories, stories almost like something in the shadows, simple and mysterious it take you away to a distant world. Wonderful! She creates a mysthical atmosphere (like Bjork), but some songs keeps the connection to the 80's like the excellent Seven, and still great songs with her normal vocal (no synthetic proccess) Keep Street Empty For Me, Now's The Only Time I Know" and When I Grow Up.
A delicious travel around a mysterious world, that just only Karin knows the roads.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dark and awesome 16 Jan 2009
By Beefer28 VINE VOICE
Format:MP3 Download
I was suprised to be able to get this so quickly seeing as the official release date was supposed to be the end of March..then lo and behold the digital version is advertised to release mid Jan...good stuff!
The solo album The Knifes Karin Drejer Andersson-this is dark, unsettling but utterly beguiling stuff.
If it took a while or if its still taking time for 'if I had a heart' to grow on you, do not fear, it'll happen- and when it does you wont be able to get enough of it! As for the rest of the album there are one or two moments akin to that track and also a few lighter but still completley captivating. All killer no filler...buy it now!

Fever Ray have came with a incredible sound, some between electronic and ethnic, with several multi-percussion sounds in an excellent arrangement (where it sounds are particular) but it doesn't sound complex, the songs take you to a unknown and fantastic world and create a introspective atmosphere. Fever Ray (Karin) have great vocal performances that is memorable, sometimes with her pure voice, others with your vocoder voice. But it's great to see here those amazing videos, they are equally strange and fantastics... I really have wanted that and it's a great surprise this Special edition with DVD and 2 bonus tracks! Really great and I encourage those who wants a true travel through of mystic and fantastic world of Fever Ray.

4.0 out of 5 stars Music For Long Dark Nights 22 July 2009
By The Wolf TOP 100 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
Dark, uncompromising music from one
Karin Elisabeth Dreijer Andersson.

Perhaps it has something to do with all
those long, angst-ridden, Swedish nights.
(Mr Strindberg understood this very
well too a century before her).

She is possessed by a turbulent vision and if you don't mind
a bumpy ride it is well worth making the journey with her.

The album deploys a far richer and more subtle application
of electronica than many of her contemporaries could even
begin to understand. At times the effect is truly magical.

It is a largely slow to mid-tempo collection and sustains
an intense melancholic mood pretty much throughout.

The voice is distinctive. Occasional sonic manipulation adds
to the otherworldly ambience. A ghost in the machine indeed.

The instrumental arrangements are spare and uncluttered and
support the melodic structure of the songs perfectly.

The pulsing motif of opening track 'If I Had A Heart' sets the
stage for much of what follows. A primal bad dream of a song.
A bit like wading through thick mud - unable to wake up.
The sound of your own heart beating in your ears.

Things don't get any easier.

'When I Grow Up' is a marvelously bitter-sweet composition.
The haunting vocal is really unnerving.
A woman wailing among the wolves.

The nervous skittering percussion of 'Concrete Walls' frames
one of the album's strongest and strangest musical ideas.
The disturbing vocal harmonies sound as though they might
be oozing out of a dark hole in the forest floor.
(Fanciful perhaps but you'll get my drift when you hear it -
and you MUST hear it !
