Damn, dawg, you totally out-wrote me in my own post! But yeah, I wanted to delve into all of the different personas and storylines that are threaded throughout each song and the album as a whole, but they all seem to be mutable and constantly shifting and I just kind of threw up my hands after a while and recognized it as some genius that's impossible to unravel. I love that there's so many unknowables about this album -- I think that's why I come back to it so often -- and I love that the Knife will never be the kind of group to provide any of those answers. I linked away to it briefly in the essay, but if you haven't yet definitely check out their new interview with Fader. Definitely a must-read for any fan.
