A lot of the elements that make the later The Knife records are present, but they fail to harness these elements with the level of grace found on their later records. Still, their motives are clear, and their songwriting, though not polished, shows a lot of promise.
Easily the Knife's silliest album. While it has some pretty uneventful tracks, 'Kino' is a ballsy blast, and 'Parade' may be the most accessible Knife song. It is funny to hear a band that is capable of 'Full of Fire' create music that is easy to listen to. You have to start somewhere, and it took The Knife a little longer to solidify a cohesive sound. It's cute though, just not up to par with the average Knife record.
