A finely structured electronic experimental album with melancholy shed on each note, envelope spectacular voice. Interpretive and lyrical quality of James Blake is unquestionable.
Blake explaining the meaning of the title of his album, which is taken from a poem, says: "It's the post-apocalyptic state where you can find yourself mentally."
From start to finish is a clean and subtle work. The album speaks for itself.… Expand

Released on April 4by @LucasJelinek After a long wait since his last work in 2006, The Knife returns with "Shaking the Habitual" in hands. Released on April 4 is their 4th studio album. What a way to go back! A mixture of experimental-techno-pop: Exciting, risky, with a strong and distinct personality! The Swedes surprised with this new release, the wait hasn't been in vain.
"A tooth for an eye", "Full of Fire", "Without you my life would be boring" are for me the first part of the album, making clear the energetic and techno-pop side of the band. I believe this is the best part of the album.
The album is split from "Wrap your arms around me" to "Raging Lung", it feels the change to the experimental electronic. I believe that "Old dreams waiting to be realized" has at least a 2 minutes more, it lasts 19:02 min. Then the album returns with a fusion of both parties to consolidate the whole work. Shaking the Habitual needs no introduction, is an album that screams what it is: One of the best of 2013 so far.… Expand
