The Knife’s “Deep Cuts”: Music review

When I first heard The Knife many years ago I got pretty excited because it was weird captivating music. I never did get around to giving them a proper good listen, so finally they’ve come around on my list. I have a lot of lists, people. If you know me, you know this.
Anyway, I love “Heartbeats” (and the José González cover, too – brings back rich and vivid memories of a particular time of my life in Ireland) with its pining lament for lost love over an ambivalent arrangement half-upbeat pop and half darkness, and I love the arpeggiated synth of “Rock Classics.” One or two other tracks on here are enjoyable to listen to, as well, but overall this album, visited so many years later in entirety, is a let-down.
