Man, this album makes me FEEL THINGS. Hval is so self-revealing she makes everyone else look like a coward. Kingsize summons the most horrible feelings of dread (NOT THE BANANAS), Take Care Of Yourself aches with the weight of a million vaginas, and on Heaven after she says "I want to sing religiously", does she literally turn into a bird and start flying into the night sky? Good grief, what a beautiful voice. It's a raw confronting experience somewhere in the vicinity of an ego death, attacking parts of my psyche that were laying dormant. There's so much gravity here that it demands complete attention and doesn't work any other way. She's one of those rare artists that seems to have the ability to connect a transmitter directly from her brain into yours. Her lyrics are like those weird fuzzy early morning thoughts you have as you're waking up, where it feels like you're solving some really important internal puzzle and everything is equal and nothing is taboo and your conscious identity hasn't fully uploaded yet so the real fundamental essence of what you are has a chance to- damn, it's gone. It's not so much that her music is otherworldly and escapist, it's more like she draws your attention to the strange ambiguous elements of what it means to be a human being in waking life. The kind of thing your brain likes to shift its awareness away from whenever it can in favour of the mundane. Apocalypse, Girl is a temporary escape into reality.

Like a weird Björk/Fever Ray hybrid.

I enjoy it thoroughly.

I'm not convinced by every thing she tries. But overall it's really good, and the last track is damn near sublime.
