From Brad1770
"Oh Lykke Your So Fine , Your So Fine You Blow My Mind Hey Lykke , Hey Lykke"

Love the saucy lyrics on this album such as:
"Don't pull your pants , before I go down .. Like a shotgun needs an outcome I'm your prostitute , you gon' get some " (Get Some Track 5 )

Nice !

This pop album by Swedish singer-songwriter Lykke Li captures perfectly the longings and anxieties and passions of young adulthood in the twenty-first century. It's an amazingly consistent effort, but the conversation begins with the sad, strangely sexy, insistent drumbeats of "I Follow Rivers."

Going into this album, I wasn't sure if I would like it, but I did. I think that Lykke Li could really turn some heads on her next release.

There’s a lot to this album. This isn’t one of those albums that’s real simple. This album is complex, there’s a lot going on here. The arrangements are very interesting, from pounding, almost tribal-like drums, to slow beautiful guitar. And lyrically the album is relatively strong as well. Most of it is dark and somewhat brooding. Whatever Lykke Li is doing, she’s doing it well and I hope to see more of it.

I can't understand why this isn't higher on the list. It deserves at least top 20 status.

I first listened to this way back in February, via official stream, a week before the album was released. I knew nothing about Lykke Li at the time, didn't know what to expect, not in even in terms of genres, and there were no reviews at the time of course. But I was pleasantly surprised, I thought it was a very good album. After that I did not listen to this album at all for about 9 months, and my memories of the songs started fading and I was wondering whether I was overrating it because of my low (well nonexisting) expectations at the time... However I gave it another listen today and it is as good as I thought it was...
I don't think her voice is great, but she's a good songwriter (I don't just mean the lyrics), a lot of the songs are quite catchy and they're all well produced. Love the percussion on most of them.

Track picks: I Know Places (the calmest song on the album.. reminds me of Emiliana Torrini), Jerome and Silent my Song (yes it's a great ending to the album :)

P.S.
I see that Get Some and Sadness is a Blessing are the popular choice for the best songs here, but I'd disagree, at least with Sadness... It's catchy but quite annoying IMO.

From Hayden
Get Some & Sadness Is A Blessing are the best tracks. Pretty good album overall, but it feels like it's missing something.

I really enjoy this album. I only recently found out about Lykke Li because of that who Iamamiwhoami mystery from about a year ago, but this is a very well crafted, relaxing pop album. It nicely fills in the spot that was filled last year by Beach House's Teen Dream, but probably not quite as good. My favorite tracks are Get Some and Sadness is a Blessing
