I usually listen to harder stuff like Tool or System of a Down but the Cardigans are a precious exception. I first heard of them when they released Carnival. I wasn't really all that impressed at first. Then came Love Fool. Once again, I ignored them. Then a friend of mine played First Band on the Moon for me and I was interested enough to buy the CD. After several listens I became hooked and quickly snapped up their other releases.
This is, by far, my favorite Cardigans album and one of my favorite CDs out of a collection of 700+. Songs like Fine and Daddy's Car are absolutely hipnotic. Listening to them makes me forget about the outside world. But the song, Beautiful One is the best on the CD in my opinion. Listening to it puts me in a trance and any tension that was in my body melts away. It is absolutely breathtaking. If you've never heard the Cardigans, do yourself the best favor you can by getting this CD.

Pop divas seem to be suffocating in their own image these days . Britney Spears has repeatedly asked us not to look at her like she's " a little girl " while on the other side of the Atlantic Victoria Beckham has recently declared too that she's not " such an innocent " female either . Back in 1995 , Nina Persson wouldn't care what you think about her . Innocence was not a bad thing for her and her band , The Cardigans . Their debut album " Life " is full of a 60's kind of style interpid sweetness .
The Swedes chose to divert the bad side of life and prefer to sing mostly about the small little details that make life as great as it is : a ride with friends , a lover's kiss , a walk at a beach nearby . Even a heartbrake ( " After All " ) is delivered here with such a tender sadness which is impossible to characterise as let's say ,depressing . From the genuin melancholy of " Sick and Tired " to the daydreaming of " Carnival " , everything here flows naturally and stands out for it's well-crafted pop complexion .
Having covered the distance between carefree pop to electronica in less than four years , The Cardigans are now exploring different paths of today's music reality . For someone who's not familiar with their early work , " Life " might come as a pleasant shock . Discover the early Cardigans and embrace this album's virtues .

As I get older, I'm faced with a dilema I'm sure many aging music fans face-- getting into and finding new music. It's really hard. You just have this urge to stick by your favorites. And as time passes and record labels keep pumping out new acts, I fall more and more in love with The Cardigans. Sure, many people just simply write them off as bubbly Swedish pop, but if you listen carefully past Nina Persson's girlish cute voice, the music is extremely well written, crafted and executed rock-n-roll. This whole album just simply rocks.
In a nutshell, the songs on this album range from bouncy (Carnival, Fine, Rise and Shine, Hey! Get Out of My Way, and Happy Meal) to loungy (Gordon's Garden Party, Daddy's Car, Our Space, Celia Inside, Over the Water) and mix of both (Tomorrow, Sick and Tired, Beautiful One, Sabbeth Bloody Sabbeth). My lack of music terminology really can't do this album justice. So in plain English, this album is really great and... it deserves way more than 5 stars. The Cardigans are just the right combination of everything that works toward making a great band and an album. If you don't own a copy yet, buy it now.

You know that feeling when you feel so depressed that you think nothing right will ever go your way, sort of like "the mean reds"? If you're suffering from these, I have a cure: Life. This CD is absolutely genius, I turn to it every time I feel down and each time I'm up again within minutes. Here's a rundown of my favorite songs:
Carnival: Turn to this song if you want to be reminded of the spirit of young love and fun, this song's carnival will have you smiling in seconds.
Our Space: Venture into the unknown, and let the lounge vibes be your vehicle and Nina your guide. This song is strange but emits great feelings.
Celia Inside: This cheery song, especially nice with the echo effect is perfect for a rainy day.
Tomorrow: Perhaps one of my favorite songs, I am filled with feelings of happiness whenever I hear it.
Hey! Get Out of my Way: This song about dumping an old boyfriend is cheery, not depressing, despite its subject matter.
Sabbath Bloody Sabbath: This one's especially good if you're angry at someone, because it takes away your aggression without violence etc.
Perhaps it's Nina's beautiful, soft voice, or maybe the frosted-sugar lounge vibes, but something about this album fills you with good feelings. All I can say is, I couldn't live without it.

If I could give an album more than five stars, Life would be the first candidate to receive it.
This CD is just brimming with an innocent joy that is as infectious as it is melodically brilliant. Just try to resist tapping your toes to "Carnival" or "Tomorrow", and it's hard to quell the urge to sing along with the delightful chorus of "Daddy's Car".
This is one of very few great pop albums. The atmosphere of the album is great, but don't take this to mean that the musicians aren't talented: one only needs to hear "Sick & Tired" for some great guitar work. A listen to "Tomorrow" will garner you with some of the best drum work of a band today. And on "Carnival", lead singer Nina's Persson's voice is taken to a whole new level of feeling, apart from her normal whisper.
This album is sheer genius. Credit also goes to the Cardigans for "Our Space" a trippy, and thoughtful song that revels in Nina's minimalist voice. The kitsch of "Gordon's Gardenparty" is wonderfully shameless.
DEFINITELY worth your time and money.
