5.0 out of 5 stars Fork out for the Knife! (See what I did there? Oh yes).
The Knife, Sweden's wonderful brother and sister electro group, return with this, their third proper studio album. Despite recent exposure courtesy of a Jose Gonzalez cover version of their song 'Heartbeats' (as well as strangley being championed by Victoria Newton of The Sun), the Knife are still relative unknowns outside of their homeland. For those of you who do know...

3.0 out of 5 stars ukhik
One of the greatest sounding records ever designed, seriously. There is an approach, almost entirely contained within electronic music, very dear to my heart, and that is producing tracks that seem to have had no human contact before you arrived. Sure, you read the reviews, listen to the MP3s floating around, have you hipster friends inanely hyping it up, but when you...

3.0 out of 5 stars ukhik, 2 Jun 2008
This review is from: Silent Shout (Audio CD)
One of the greatest sounding records ever designed, seriously. There is an approach, almost entirely contained within electronic music, very dear to my heart, and that is producing tracks that seem to have had no human contact before you arrived. Sure, you read the reviews, listen to the MP3s floating around, have you hipster friends inanely hyping it up, but when you give it time to settle down and swim around your mind for a while, it seems like an untouched world. That doesn't mean that the music lacks emotion, just that there is no immediately recognisable human emotion beneath the surface to sink your proverbial teeth into; like, there is no happy, angry or sad, just atmosphere and space and your own thoughts. This can often be more powerful than straightforward aggression or sob stories over guitars, so it's delightful to hear a record that delivers this as expertly as Silent Shout. There are vocals, sure, but even these seem to have all humanity sucked out of them. All we are left with is a vacuum of sound, and that is impressive enough to make me forget the major missteps that occur as this record spins, particularly towards the end. Oh, life!

4.0 out of 5 stars Check out Deep cuts!, 4 Jun 2006

This review is from: Silent Shout (Audio CD)
Once upon a time I was walking round Topshop when a beautiful rhythm hit my ear. I discovered that It was "You take my breath away" by a band know as The Knife. Although that song was on the previous album to silent shout its still worth mentioning because Silent shout is a good album but it gets a bit spaced out apart from amazing songs such as "we share our mothers health" (check out the video and listen to the album on silentshout.co.uk) and it isnt as good as their previous albums. It seems really that people are bumming them now because they're getting more famous even though this isnt their best album. If you want to hear the best songs buy "deep cuts"
