The Swedish siren continues to create her own little dream world on Pale Fire. Both fire and love seem to rule that world: "Now I know what it feels to love," she contently chants on slippery reverie "Home Is to Feel Like That"; "You once had the power/ Now I carry the fire," she adds on the fluid and funky "I Carry the Fire." Like Lykke Li, her vocals exude a quiet confidence, and here they glide along wispy synth symphonies with the grace of an ice skater as she sashays from the woozy dream pop of the title cut to the Zero 7-ish trip-hop of "Walk on By" to the loose reggae of "Love in Vain."
