Product Description


Long Gone Before Daylight marks a shift in theme for the Cardigans. Their last album, 1998's Gran Turismo, was a masterpiece. With Peter Svensson's quirky, driving, ultra-modern pop backing Nina Persson's icy dissections of doomed relationships, it was a Love Album informed more by Bret Easton Ellis than any high romance. So catchy, so cool and so incredibly bleak--exceptional, intelligent pop in the tradition of Soft Cell and ABC. Long Gone Before Daylight, then, comes as something of a shock when the opening "Communication" and "You're the Storm"--both lush and beautiful pop--find Persson struggling for love then, come the Doors-like "And Then You Kissed Me", actually finding it. Real love, too--not the fascinatingly twisted variety of before. It's a terrible shame, for love reduces the Cardigans to the level of other musicians. But then, unpredictable devils, they hit you with "Couldn't Care Less", as Persson loses it all again, in the following "Please Sisters" begging for advice, succour, anything. And now you realise; it's a pop-rock opera, the tale of one heart's tortuous and tortured journey through the mill. And it's superb. Persson, the finest pop lyricist working today, is on peak form while the band's back-to-roots grand piano and grander acoustic guitars provide an appropriately magnificent backing. --Dominic Wills

5.0 out of 5 stars Speechless... 30 Jun 2003
Format:Audio CD
I don't think I'm going to add anything new to what other people have written here - I'm merely expressing another vote of FIVE stars for this astonishing, polished work. I'm glad the people of Amazon have mostly favoured this album. It surely deserves the praise.
Nina's new love of the country style which she displayed very well without the other Cardigans on her A Camp album shows very much here. To the rest of the Cardigans' credit however, they add something very perfect and very natural to this album which was lacking on her 'solo' venture.
This sound suits her voice so well. I was a fan of Gran Turismo, but it's this dusky setting, sat at home on your own with only a bottle of wine for company, where this album excels.
The slow and the not so slow tracks here are balanced nicely. Not too maudlin, and not too up tempo, but it's the slower tracks which work best for me. The incredibly debilitating "Couldn't Care Less" is one of finest songs I've ever ever heard, and on every listen stops me in my tracks.
Musically and lyrically, this is wonderful stuff, and the polished production never goes over the top. The finest instrument is of course the singer, but this truly is a band effort - every note played, every instrument chosen all adds to this great great album. There are a few lyric cliches here and there, but I'm sure many bands whose native language is English will kick themselves that a Swede has a better command of expression and poetry than they do...
There are loads of highlights on this album - "Communication", "And Then You Kissed Me", "Lead Me Into The Night", "Feathers and Down" and "03:35 No Sleep" are particularly exceptional for me.
Enjoy (bottle of wine optional).

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely brilliant..buy it now! 29 April 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I thought, shockingly enough, I might be the first person to provide a glowing review of this CD but someone else (apparently) bought the CD too & beat me to it!
This, in my humble estimation, is The Cardigans at their best - the tormented, twisted, tenebrous undercurrents still bubbling up under what are superlatively crafted jaunty ("pop") songs with some very clever, brutally honest lyrics. Perhaps a tad more upbeat & accoustic-based than Gran Turismo but hey, bands have to move on. The played-incessantly highlights for me are: Communication - beautifully sweeping with orchestral backdrop & such aching vulnerability from Nina Persson's vocal you (may) want to cry. And Then You Kissed Me - Nina on top form relating the darker side of love and making no apologies for it! You're The Storm - this is exactly what I mean by "jaunty" (singalong), but with such shimmering songwriting brilliance (the lyric especially). These guys are just too clever for their own good.
On a parting note, does anyone else think Nina sounds a little disconcertingly like Sheryl Crow on A Good Horse? Or is it just my ears?!

5.0 out of 5 stars Serendipity 6 Sep 2003
Format:Audio CD
Who would have thought that someone driving into your car would be a blessing in disguise? If wasn't for a hire car and Wimbledon swamping Radio Five, I would never have turned to Radio Two to offer me some relief from motorway miles - and not have heard "You're the Storm". My life would have been so much less rich for this. If someone had told me I would fall in love with a Cardigan's album I'd not have believed them.
This album is worth losing a no claims bonus for.
If there was a magic formula for albums, this would have used it.
Some albums excite and fade away quickly, some albums never offer a spark, some albums offer just enough to make you come back and get stronger listen after listen. This fits in to the latter catagory.
How to describe the album? Cast your minds back to the late eighties and early nineties. Albums were made that were layered, sounded sonically superb and that had energy. This was how many great albums were recorded before sqaushed flat sounds ruled the roost. Forget all that, because this takes the best aspects of bygone, classic production and adds a modern touch.
Three things stand out: beautiful acoustic guitar sounds (sympathetically played), a gorgeous, sexy (let's not ignore this fact) voice that makes you lose the moment and most importantly superb songs.
The first two songs, on second listen, send shivers down your spine. They are jaw droppingly good. Twenty or so listens later other songs then start to have the same effect.
This is what music was invented for.
This is guitar pop at its very best.
This is how modern music should be recorded, but even if it was, very few would come close to producing classy songs like this, that stick in your head without being annoying.

5.0 out of 5 stars melancholy masterpiece 7 Jun 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
i have to be honest - i bought this on the strength of the single "for what it's worth". all too often, i've been bitterly disappointed when i've done this and the album has just gone to prove the theory that everybody has one great song in them, but sadly it's the only one. in this case though, i was impressed if a little surprised.
i'd like to be able to write one of those music journo reviews that dissects the album track by track and describes each one in detail. but as i've listened to this album on my 1 hour drive to and from work i've got no idea what track numbers are, let alone what the songs are called, so that kind of puts paid to that idea.
however, the greatest endorsement i can give for this album is that it stayed in my cd player in the car for 3 uninterrupted weeks (thats 30+ plays) before it was replaced. it is undoubtedly an album of songs in a contemplative mood, but more bittersweet that full on radiohead introspectiveness. the recording itself is absolutely outstanding which gives the album a very laid back and natural feel.
if you want an album of "lovefool" pop ditties, you'll be very disappointed, but listen with an open mind and it's hard to deny that this is a very very good album.

This is a softer sounding album after Gran Turismo, and both are equally brilliant! Nina's vocals are delicately haunting and each song melts from one to the other. BUY IT! 5*
