Released: December 2008

Post-'Silent Shout', many wondered out loud as to where The Knife would go next. To conceptual opera, it turned out, but as a solo artist, Karin Andersson went further into the dark, petrol-coloured altitudes hinted at on 'Silent Shout' with Fever Ray. 'If I Had A Heart' sounded ritualistic and unrelenting, with malevolence seeping out of every pore. It called to mind zombies, death cults and the Tin Man from The Wizard Of Oz, but Andersson's brilliance was that she never revealed the full identity of the song's evil. (PE)
