Unrequited but Loved nonetheless,
This review is from: Wounded Rhymes (MP3 Download)
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.
