5.0 out of 5 stars One of my Desert Island Discs 28 July 2005
By M. Svetinsky - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I picked this album up on a whim from a used bin for $2, and it has been one of my all time favorites ever since! It is simply some of the finest 60's tinged POP music i've ever heard, and it never fails to put a smile on my face. While Frida's voice may be just a bit too sugary sweet for some, i hear it as just another instrument in the band, and her melodies stick with me all day long. A guilty pleasure like that one little piece of dark chocolate I allow myself every day.

...and the music is incredible... great rhythms & guitar riffs, the string arrangements, vibraphones, french horns, synth tweezes, and the odd sitar twang on one song provide a lush landscape of sonic entertainment... all recorded with a cool 60's vibe.

Their following album Vertigo is very good too, but it seems they started taking things more seriously. While it sounds more "mature", it's not as fun and playful as The Courier. My backup CD-R of these 2 albums never leaves my convertible, as Cinnamon is the perfect soundtrack for top-down California cruising.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great, essential album 21 Feb 2003
By Bobo Da Klown - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I completely agree with the first review, only it's worth five stars not three! They are anything but a Cardigans clone, and actually seem to capture the 60s vibe even more effectively. Throw in some occasional guitar squalor and Stereolab-like keyboard sounds and it adds up to a great listening experience.
I hadn't listened to this CD in ages and found I love it more than ever. It is IMHO a better release than the subsequent Vertigo. Look for it used at all costs!

3.0 out of 5 stars A record for all of you who loved the early Cardigans 22 Feb 2002
By giovanni - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
The problem that in these days many groups have to face is to find the right audience to adress to . Cinnamon surely write some really good music and their singer Frida has a sweet tender voice yet it is sure that many teenagers today who search to listen to something controversial and revolutionary will probably consider them as... geeks ! And it is exactly an attitude like that which makes such great records like " The Courier " fail selling a decent number of copies . The swedish duo pen some terrific tunes here like the samba-meets-The-Smiths " A Northest Passage " or the sensitive , pop ballad of " Backwords " . The highlight of this album though is certaintly " A Suddently Clarity " in which beautiful Frida sings lines like " I'm looking into the lives of people i've left behind / watch them with fascination / watch them with satisfaction " without sounding though even a little cynical or ironic . It's a song about moving forward you see, and feel good about yourself and not about being more succesfull than others and rubbing it to their faces . Chances are that when you finally make the wise move and buy this , you'll spend the next three months looking for photos of Frida on the net .
