Highly exotic debut album from this Norwegian vocalist, with Björk-like tendencies, strange electronic-pop assemblage and plenty of intrigue -- another out-of-nowhere and potentially explosive release from Rune Grammofon. "From the dictaphone surrealism of the opening track to the achingly beautiful 'Breaking The Girl', there's no doubt that we're dealing with a highly original and uncompromising artist not afraid to follow her creative intuition. Heavy electronics, twisted rhythms, triphop, and minimalist lo-fi country is all put together by the young singer/writer in her own musical universe. Several of the songs are built virtually without harmonic structures, quite unusual in most popular genres, and leave special demands on the vocal performances. Many of the songs are improvised in the recording studio, and she's not too fond of structural means like verse and chorus. Her often poetic/surrealist lyrics are quite peculiar, to say the least, and even if the 'rock' genre often is seen as a place for experimentation, it is relatively rare to see language challenged to such a degree as Tove Nilsen is doing here."
