More accessible than their other albums with richly Scandinavian influences on tracks such as "Parade", but the whole album leaves you with a 'what the hell was that' feeling. N.Y Hotel gives a melancholy lustre to the album not seen on the newer discs of The Knife starkly contrasted with the dark "Reindeer", a Christmas track. Brilliant, really keeps you awake and surprised all the way to the bitter end....

I bought this following a glowing review in The Wire. The reviewer mentions similarities to Bjork and this is certainly justified. The vocalist sounds like Bjork and has a similar turn of phrase. Imagine a hybrid of Hong Kong Garden and Mum with Bjork singing and you'll have some idea of what this album sounds like. There's accordians, minimal electronica and a helping of punk too. If you're not already convinced, at this price it's well worth taking a chance on.

A bizarre, interesting and stimulating album. Makes me want to listen to more 'the Knife'

please note this is the 2010 imoprot version of the knife which only has 11 tracks on it. The older 2006 version of the knife has 14 tracks on it. The missing tracks seem to be 1)high school poem 2)hannah's conscious 3)vegetarian restaurant.

I fell into the trap and bought this collection of clueless tracks just because they were partly made by the girl in TMCoil. I think you could do much better in your bedroom with the keyboard you were given when you were 7. It proves the minds behind TMCoil lie elsewhere (See The Hope Blister, Smile's OK)
