"i can't understand the different song line ups. the first "life" i bought a very long time ago was a cassette that had 11 songs. the flow of the album is so perfect i loved it so much i overplayed it and had my cassette player eat it. so i bought the cd and there's another different song line up (gasp!) and later would i find out that it's the UK Version of "life" which had additional songs from the earlier album "emmerdale" including a different take on Rise & Shine (which is nice) and ommitted Pikebubbles, Sunday Circus Song and Closing Time. and now this - the minty fresh release of "life". it ommitted Traveling with Charley, replaced the new version of Rise & Shine with the old version and added more songs from "emmerdale" (i really don't think that Our Space fits right in "life" kinda wrecks the happy-go-lucky mood) the first version of "life" IMHO is still superior and i'm aware, as well as the band do, that the minty fresh version acts as some kind of a compilation between the cardigans' first two albums, if you really want to experience the real "life" please do check out the one that starts with carnival and ends with closing time, me thinks it's some kind of a concept album, a very happy one. the songs from "emmerdale" wrecked the happy mood, as we all know "emmerdale's" not that happy at all."
This is a great album

"This album is is a treasure chest overstuffed with the rarest of all entities - finely crafted pop songs. I have owned this album since 1997 and I can say it has aged quite well. Timeless in fact."
LIFE and other joys....

"This album is so amazingly unique and charming..its a shame they had to go on making albums so completely different from this one. But any credible band or artist doesnt want to make the same album twice, so I take this album for what it is...pure fun. The voice of Nina is what sugar would sound like in musical form...coupled with the brilliant arrangment of catchy, upbeat and smooth music of Peter along with the back-up of the talented band, this is music for a sunny day...or to shed some light on a rainy day. This music came out in the mid-90's when it seemed people had a sense of humor about music, and the only thing being played on the radio and MTV wasnt just cry-baby whiney booty call gangsta un-imaginative "rock"...oh I long for the days of innocent music, but for now..I pop in LIFE and am transported to the days when music had more variety and wasnt so serious, or even to a mid-60's lounge if I play the right track....great album, great band."
