On week 2, the album fell out of the top 50, at No.

They later changed their name to "Tegan and Sara" because people thought they were a solo act named "Sara Antegan." The new name was more memorable and their first album was later reprinted under the name Tegan and Sara.
The album was written during a period of intense emotional turmoil for both Tegan and Sara.
Sara was struggling with Canadian immigration to get her American-born girlfriend a working visa so they could live together, while Tegan was dealing with the breakup of a five-year relationship.
She dreamt that her twin sister Tegan had been stabbed, and that Sara crawled in bed with her grandmother for refuge.
“Knife Going In” features guitarist and composer Kaki King playing lap steel guitar.
This is Tegan and Sara’s fifth album, and their most fully realized and developed work to date.
