5.0 out of 5 stars There's really no rest for the wicked., 7 May 2014
This review is from: I Never Learn (Audio CD)
Lykke Li has become the desperate yet hopeful female singer-songwriter over the years. Taking the crown from her masters such as Kate Bush and Tori Amos, she released her most stripped back and mournful record yet. I've been an admirer of her cold but loud musical atmosphere for quiet some time which is partly provided by her mentor Björn Yttling since her 2008 debut. But unlike those albums this album lacks the young hearted pop songs like Little Bit or Get Some and we're left with a 28 year old women who's mourning after "her worst break up". But luckily Li is such an artist she doesn't bore as with tearjerker ballads instead they're so powerful that you wanna sing them out loud along with her. Most of the record misses her signature drums and the album contains her simplist lyrics yet mainly because of its depressed atmosphere. Once again wrapped in darkness galore (this time more) Lykke Li achieves to make the final part of her trilogy a very enjoyable, beautiful and at times saddening listening. My favorites from the album are: I Never Learn (phenomenal, epic album opener), No Rest for the Wicked, Gunshot (amazing!). My point is 8.7/10.
