Miss Lykke Li the new addition to the international list of Swedish divas has made her album available for stream yesterday on Hype Machine. Sounding much bigger than her debut in Youth Novels, maybe of the songs such as previous singles “Get Some” “I Follow Rivers” and “Love Out of Lust” are built up with songs that surround them. Much more brooding compared to the tracks on her previous album, songs such as “Sadness Is A Blessing” is really a heart crunching number but full of that Phil Spector-esque fifties pop. Fans may miss the dancier aspects of Youth Novels. But this album is a clear sign that Lykke Li has matured with her songwriting. Either that or as she’s stated in the past, she really hit her mark with wanting to express the sadness in today’s youth.
