Coming Around to See the Point of The Knife

A Swedish duo who employ synthesizers and a dark, even macabre point of view may not be to every listeners' taste.

But The Knife, whose CD Silent Shout was a favorite among music bloggers and Web sites like Pitchfork, may be an exception. Among the darkness, there is levity — and even silliness.

Correction Oct. 30, 2007

The archived audio mistakenly identifies the song and CD. The correct title for both is "Silent Shout."
