VIRNA LINDT (Buy CDs by this artist)
Shiver (UK Compact Organization) 1984

This Swedish chanteuse, co-writing her material with the Compact Organization's resident genius, Tot Taylor, mixes genres of alarming variety into one unpredictable mutation of '60s film themes, chilly electronic pop, barrelhouse ballads, Eastern European intrigue and dramatic tape effects. And then some. Inhabiting the center point between flaky-fascinating and flaky-boring, Shiver is more an album to possess than to play.

[Ira Robbins]
