I reckon this might be my first ever opera review.. Luckily The Knife are involved so I'm somewhat in my comfort zone, if that's the right phrase for The Knife and their unsettling baroque ways. Here they're working with Mt. Sims and Planningtorock to soundtrack an opera based around the life of some dude called Charles Darwin and some theory that he had about some shit or other that doesn't seem important. As much as it wavers from what you might expect from an opera soundtrack with its emphasis on synthesized sound and often jarring tone manipulations (which are at least as harsh as a lot of Pan Sonic stuff), the majority of the vocal work on these two discs handled by the truly operatic Kristina Wahlin Bomme which creates a pretty unique combination, at least in my listening experience. As things progress the confusing chaos of the early tracks develops into more rhythmic, ordered forms, perhaps to represent the theories coming together in Darwin's mind or perhaps even planet's own progression (or not, depending on which way you look at it) from bubbling primordial soups and gaseous toxins into a calmer, greener land filled with life.. Fuck knows to be honest but it's cool stuff in any case. Filling two CDs, it can be heavy going at times (and lord knows I've probably hardly scratched the surface skimming through it as I have) but I can't help but recommend such an interesting release.
