  1. Persson, the finest pop lyricist working today, is on peak form while the band's back-to-roots grand piano and grander acoustic guitars provide an appropriately magnificent backing.
  2. Persson's tender voice, coupled with the Cardigans' welcome desire to explore new musical territory, allows this once-fizzy group to pull off a sultry coup. [28 May 2004, p.124]

    Probably there best album even better than Gran Turismo (and i thought that was a great album) I think they matured a bit with this one lovely melodies and lovely lyrics when you listen it really gets to you makes you think but not all songs are mellow there a some great upbeat guitars tracks included aswell. Definately Buy it. This is a band that is so underestimated by the media and radio stations its as if they have been cast a side.
