CD Reviews

They just do not make albums like this
J. Spice | Dubai, United Arab Emirates | 06/11/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"You could only dream of making an album this good.

One of The Cardigans best skills is re-invention. On this album they became the perfect band with the perfect album. Nina's lyrics are her best ever, and delivered with that irresistible silky Swedish sex-kitten voice. Peter Svenssons guitars and arrangements are brilliant. They had completed this album a couple of times and chucked and did it again until it was as good as they could make it.

Lyrically and musically, this album takes them into the rarified stratosphere of must-have albums, and without a doubt into one of the 50 best albums ever. These guys found some really good magic here, a beautiful mixture of light and gold-dust, "champagne from last New Year's", a slightly euphoric candle-lit warmth with an eternal return of love and loss, salt in your wounds and a promise of your heart's desire.

4 years after its release, I still think it is incredible. To me that means it is going to stand the test of time. And maybe that's because they have put down some timeless tracks, stuff that will always meet you halfway, and touch you right where you are.

The band might be long gone before daylight, but the album they left behind is in it for the long haul.

It's great!

"The Cardigans are probably the most exciting group to come out of Sweden in a generation. This album is their fifth(!), and it has a great, smooth sound that differs from their earlier "Pop" tunes. I love the songs For What It's Worth and Live And Learn, but there is not a bad track on this entire album.

So, if you like smooth and mellow music by a great band, then you really must consider getting this album - it's great! I love this album and highly recommend it."
