    While a more focused production ethic might have made for a more consistent album, Pale Fire still goes places the last album never dreamed and hopefully opens doors for even more drastic developments to come.

    Assbring dots the album's 10 tracks with sophisticated tonal variations.

    In Pale Fire El Perro Del Mar distances herself from the confines of her solitary beginnings, opening up an entire world of possibility.

    One of the most beguiling and unique offerings of the Swedish pack.

    In essence, under the mantle of her most pretentious album title yet (in a catalog of pretty brilliant titles), lies an earnest dance-pop album.

    Pale Fire is a pale beauty, and if you're seeking the chill-out Lykke Li (with whom she split a single in 2009) or an equivalent oasis of smouldering calm, Assbring will see you right.

    It's an unmistakable departure. But when her staid delivery and lyrics sink in, the artistry that draws listeners toward El Perro Del Mar comes to light.

    On her fifth album, she discovers a new direction--and sounds all the better for it.
