Riff: The Knife – “Full of Fire”

Feb 2, 2013

When you’re full of fire/What’s the object of your desire?

from Full of Fire lyrics by The Knife

“Full of Fire” is a socio-political, experimental/electronic assault that morphs over time from a plain headache (for the unprepared) into acupuncture for the eardrums and the skull. However, it overstays its welcome at nine minutes (about two too many). Clubbers will likely disagree, though.
