lp reissue of the 2nd album from the knife, 'deep cuts' saw wide release only after the success of 2006's 'silent shout', a more dance-oriented work than its dark, moody successor.

while the wonderful quirks of the swedish brother/sister duo -- namely distorted vocals & prominent synth lines -- are present, they are often used in shimmering, club-ready contexts, as on the vibrant 'heartbeats' (later covered by indie-folk performer josé gonzalez) & 'you take my breath away', which skates along nimbly on a sheet of icy beats. if 'deep cuts' is a night out on the dancefloor, 'silent shout' is the chilling, shadow-filled walk home, making the former the more accessible & lighthearted of the 2 albums.
