I only literally got into the music of The Knife and Fever Ray within the last month, so this new arrival is timely for me and also a bit overwhelming. Anyone familiar with Royksopp will already know how unusual and wrenchingly mesmerising Karin Dreijer Andersson's vocals are, and as part of The Knife and her solo project Fever Ray, she has sung on some great experimental/dance tracks. This album is different, in that most of the tracks are largely instrumental concept tracks, and when there are vocals they are mostly sung in operatic style by, I believe, Kristina Wahlin Momme and Lærke Bo Winther. Karin Dreijer Andersson does appear at times, but you shouldn't go into this album expecting it to be anything like The Knife's usual work.

To be honest, this experimental opera works far better if cut back to just five tracks - Annie's Box, Tomorrow In A Year, Colouring of Pigeons, The Height of Summer, and Annie's Box (Alternative Vocal Version). It is based on Charles Darwin's On The Origin of Species - great idea, but it requires some serious concentration to listen to the lyrics and make it work. In fact, this is one of the most challenging pieces of music you'll hear, and by that I mean you need to actively listen and concentrate hard - you can't listen passively or just let it wash over you. It's a strange, often disorientating experience, but that gives it massive value both as a piece of art and as a workout for the brain.

You can listen to the entire album at present on The Knife's homepage, which is what I did before I downloaded it. Having done that though, I only wrote the five tracks I mentioned above to CD, so some forethought is recommended with this album, even for Knife fans.

A very difficult album to write about. I didn't find this as challenging to listen to as it has been made out to be, although the atonal glitches and blippety-bleeps of earlier tracks can be off-putting. The most important thing to bear in mind is that this is a concept album about evolution. In that context it is a definite success, and the music is forward-thinking and avant-garde in its conception.

'Colouring of Pigeons' is the absolute stand-out; It is a genuinely moving piece of music, with a deeply wounded cello drone ebbing and falling around echoing drum-beats and operatic vocals, and the part where the male vocal comes in (sung by Olof Dreijer?) is profoundly haunting.

I'm slightly bewildered by the exaggerated reaction to this album as being the most challenging piece of music released in some time, when really it is a very considered and beautiful work of art. Pretentious? By nature of course, but it carries itself with conviction and honesty, and as always with any release involving The Knife there is no ego or self-promotion involved, just gloriously original noise created because of a belief in the power of music to open our eyes to the truth that there is more to the world than just ourselves.

In reply to Mrs R Noakes: I'm not sure indie kids with funny haircuts will be listening to this one, it's not really that kind of record. If you give it time and allow yourself to just take it in, this album is awesome. It is difficult listening though - not for the fainthearted or looking for the knife's previous floor-fillers. I have the utmost respect for any who takes a chance on making something not everyone will like.

I saw the live show of this at the Barbican in London several years ago; it was a thrilling experience. I wondered if the audio-only recording would live up to that memory as the visual, the dance and the live vibe would be absent. However I think it is beautiful; the singing and synth work is amazing and doesn't require the other elements. I'm not sure if that's because I associate it with the memory of the live show or whether if stands by itself. Not one to play whilst doing the housework, hoovering etc; find a quiet space and play it loud.

**** & 1/2

The Knife have yet to make just less than a good album. Deep Cuts was the most access able , and was still not for the faint heated. In a Year Tomorrow has the same snow covered landscapes as Silent Shout in many years from yesterday. More like the album Biosphere and The Higher Intelligence Agency have made together..
I am a huge fan of all their music, including Fever Ray. A fan of early 90's The Orb,Orbital,Underworld,Biosphere and most recently Digitalism,ect...
I would have any Knife album than no album. buy the Mp3 version if not sure.
And check out last years Steven Wilson's GRACE FOR DROWNING...

the sheer contrast of science and emotion is stunning
the way the music slowly develops and sounds like lave flow and artificial bird call
it beautiful
and full of the stunning opera vocal that i love

ive been a knife fan for a long time and i am soo pleased with this offering

a wonderful buy
but only if you really have the time to listen to it and scan the lyrics

fantastic

I can understand people being completely befuddled and alienated by it, but i'm not. I think there are enough sections like in Variation of Birds and the Pigeons one, and Height of Summer, to keep you gripped from the first listen. They're the reason i listened again, and of course upon listening again i discovered so many other beautiful parts to it that i'd overlooked or been alienated by the first time.

It's not like any other of The Knife's albums, it's utterly unique and lovely, and an opera! i love opera, i love darwin, i love the knife.. so what's not to like?..

Of course it being a studio version of an opera make me want to see the opera, i wonder exactly what has changed, what, if anything, has been left out, much like i do when i listen to Tom Waits alice and blood money, albums whose music was also originally made to be staged.
