On El Perro del Mar's self-titled 2006 breakthrough album, the agony rained down from Assbring's voice, contrasting exquisitely with the ecstatic Phil Spector-style production, sashaying girl-group rhythms, and songs about candy. Her latest leaves its ecstasy to uplifting lyrics and lets the vocals' agony seep into starker, sadder arrangements. Here, Assbring sends out forlorn-sounding songs about hope, happiness, imagination, the sun, the time we have left, and other precious things from the place where prayers are usually cast aloft: a church.
Sarah Assbring of El Perro del Mar is one of these. On her previous singles and album (2006's self-titled affair), Assbring convincingly, crushingly bled sadness - in the music and the words, but most of all in her fragile and haunted vocals. Even at her cheeriest, Assbring still sounds like someone just broke into her house, stole all of her Ronettes and Bridget Saint John records, broke them one by one, and then kicked her cat for good measure .
The first single is "How Did We Forget?", released on February 13, 2008. Glory to the World" - 2:52. You Can't Steal a Gift" - 2:33. How Did We Forget?" - 3:11. Inside the Golden Egg" - 1:46. To Give Love" - 2:28. Inner Island" - 4:39. Do Not Despair" - 3:20.

Mostly gone are El Perro’s Phil Spector-y guitars and doo-wop horns–here, they’re replaced by organs that complement the record’s mournful mood. Despite a lack of pep, the album’s still very pretty, but without any cheerful elements balancing the tone, it often feels like melancholic overload. There are many moments to love, though, particularly the effervescent You Can’t Steal a Gift and its dirge-y follow-up, How Did We Forget?
