I heard this in a local independant cd shop and thought it was really interesting. Bought it on a whim and played it a couple of times in the car, then played it again.....and again.....

Its different, quirky, percussive and a bit left wing, but the tunes worm into your head and you want to get to know them better, so you play it again.....

I can see this being one of my fasvourites of the year. Give it a try, play it a few times and you too could be hooked. I Follow Rivers and Get Some are just brilliant songs.

This could be massive, but I suspect it's not mainstream enough.

Love this album. Has a big fifties girl-band vibe with a large dose of haunting Twin Peak echo plus some other mysterious ingredients. Just gets under your skin, find myself playing it constantly in the car. Delicious.

Take your eye of the ball for one moment and suddenly early in the season Li Lykke Timotej Zachrisson better known as Sweden's Lykke Li scores a very special goal. Indeed only three months into to the year she may well have recorded one of the "pop" albums of 2011 with "Wounded Rhymes" and proved yet again that the current crop of diminutive female singers (see Janelle Monae) pack a real wallop. Li is described in the blurb to accompany this album as "a Kung-fu Marianne Faithful, and an armed Nancy Sinatra on peyote" and thats fair enough as a nice bit of marketing; in fact if you were to add The Ronettes into the equation and a sprinkling of her Swedish chums The Knife you would be in the ball park in terms of influences. She is nonetheless very much her her own woman and this album has a nice dark slant to temper its more overt poppier instincts. Check out opener "Youth knows no pain" which starts with huge percussion, almost a Charlatans style key board riff and a delicious vocal by Li giving it a sixties feel which for some reason cries out to soundtrack a Austin Powers film. The single "Get some" is completely infectious and riotous where Li informs us over tribal drum that she is" like a shotgun who needs a outcome" and one would sincerely hope that the result would be a huge hit single. The latest single off the album however is "I follow rivers" which starts with a xylophone tinkle and pounds deep into you skull with a hammering pop sensibility and a daft lyric, while "Rich kid blues" could happily soundtrack a James Bond film.Read more ›

I accidentally came across Love out of Lust and instantly wanted to listen to it over and over. What a strange mixture of submarine sounds and some echoes of what sounds like the end of Fleetwood Mac's Albatross. Ordering the CD, to my surprise I equally like Sadness is a Blessing, again reminds me of something - Leader of the Pack. My other favourite is Jerome. It's great to have the words of the songs written down - which are difficult to understand from the CD but that doesn't bother me. It all adds to the appealing weirdness of the music.

I bought this album as I enjoyed her last one. I am seriously impressed. She has really stepped up and improved. It is really good album, mature, evocative, melodic and altogether lovely. Side with the angels and give it a listen.

Apart from I Follow Rivers, the tracks are pretty monotonous and not interesting. Not much singing going on, the beats all sound the same, lyrics not interested. Very disappointed compared to her first album. This one is dull and soporific! Regarding I Follow Rivers, the remix that made the song famous worldwide is actually better than the original song... Album not worth buying. Stick to her one.

I loved Lykke's first album and was a little worried as to how she could follow this up. The direction has slightly changed but worry not, the quality is there. The song-craft is in total effect as each sound becomes instantly familiar upon first listen. However, this doesn't mean that the songs are superficial, just that they have been well written and the tunes are so catchy that you swear they should have already been written. I'm not saying all is perfect, tuning is a slight issue on Unrequited Love just towards the end of the track, where the vocal grates ever so slightly. Other than this, you could pick seven or eight possible single releases. I don't think this album will propel Lykke into the mainstream but why would she want that, she's more than fine being slightly off-scene. It makes it a bit more special when you like an act as brilliant as Lykke Li and most people will never hear her songs. Unrequited indeed.

I bought this album after hearing I follow rivers and as I also have the previous album. Unfortunately this second album is very much like the first one in that there are gems here but they are mixed in with some quite mediocre tracks. inconsistent is probably my best description. I'm sure some will rave on about her work but I would take 50 odd % out to leave a more solid body of work.
