It's Been Too Long,
This review is from: Long Gone Before Daylight (Audio CD)
I absolutely love this album. I'm a long time Cardigans fan and I had been anxiously awaiting another album ever since Gran Turismo. I really didn't know what to expect from this one, since The Cardigans have developed somewhat of a reputation for changing styles. From the kitsch-pop sound of Emmerdale/Life and First Band on the Moon...to the dark, cold, electronic sounds of Gran Turismo...and now Long Gone Before Daylight.
It's so beautifully done. Their sound has changed in every way...the instruments are more organic, and Nina Persson's voice has gone from the syrupy sweet, high pitched thing we heard on Lovefool to something much deeper and sexier, reminiscent of a lounge singer. The lyrics are even more impressive than the sound. Nina really pours her heart into this one...from the vividly descriptive "You're the Storm", to the hauntingly fantastic "Couldn't Care Less" and "Feathers & Down".
This album is amazing from start to finish. You'll love it more and more each time you listen to it.
