Lykke Li’s debut album three years ago was a breath of fresh air.

Her second album blows up a storm!

The tornado pulls you in from the first note of “Youth Knows No Pain”, continue to tease your senses with “I Follow Rivers” stirs you heart with “Love Out Of Lust” and messes your mind up with “Get Some”. It is a stimulating, powerful and emotional trip, promising bruises and heartache while Lykke Li is shouting:

 

“c’mon honey blow yourself to pieces, c’mon honey give yourself completely”
