Review // The Knife – Shaking The Habitual

Rabid // April 8th

It’s been seven years since their last album, and Karin and Olof have never been so welcome. Following on from 2006’s ‘Silent Shout’ was always going to be a herculean task, but with their return clocking in at 97 minutes, it’s hard to feel shortchanged. The limits of your patience will be tested with the 19 minute drone of ‘Old Dreams…’ and the 10 minute horror soundtrack of ‘Fracking Fluid Injection’, but it’s all part of the bizarre and enticing complexion we’ve come to cherish. An immersive experience that rewards those who see it through to the end.
