Alannis Morisette for the electro generation, not my thing at all.

Doesnt it get a bit boring comparing things? Wouldn't you rather experience everything new.

I was at Fever Rays first gig ever, it took place in norway. It was a very beautiful show even then, I bet they are great by now!

I LOVE the sounds on this album and lots of The Knife's stuff. Some days I could say it's the best thing in a long time but then again there's also Crystal Castles and New Look

By the way Fever Ray - When I Grow Up (Lissvik Remix) is great. http://stereogum.com/archives/mp3/new-f ... 57211.html

It's amazing how she can take sounds that otherwise would be considered quite cheesy even in an old school Billy Ocean song and make them sound modern. :)

Fever Ray is the shit! can't wait til she passes through SF. Just hope the live show lives up to the album, which is the best as far as albums go that I've heard in a while.

Fever Ray = Awesome. The Knife's "Silent Shout" = Awesome-er IMO. In any case they are both awesome.

I think her cd sounds a bit unfinished... But maybe I'm just missing the point!
I like her better together with Royksopp!
