Cardigans` third record is, well, not all that different from their previous ones. This time the lyrics get a little darker and cynical at parts, although the songs remain poppy, acessible, and, unfortunately, a bit forgettable. This is easy listening, which isn`t too bad but it`s not that exciting either and becomes a somewhat repetitive album. This meld of pop, lounge and kitsch is mildly entertaining but ìsn`t enough to make a solid record. Still, there are some good songs here, like the pretty "The Great Divide" or the catchy "Been It", even if the rest ends up sounding the same. Cute and listenable, but that`s it. The bands` next release, "Gran Turismo", is a more consistent and ambitious offering, stepping in a new and darker direction.
