Well, what can one say about this album other than it truley is very good.
Owning all of the Cardigans albums I would say this is the point where they grow up, previous offering 'Life' (and Emmerdale, which is really just a rehash of Life) and 'First Band On The Moon' had their moments of sheer pop bliss, but that is about it, the only assumption that could be made about The Cardigans that could be made up until this point would be young Brit-pop upstarts, until they hit upon 'Lovefool' one of those songs that make the band but inevitably makes the band hate their own sound due to the overplaying.
