  • Summary: The veteran Swedish band's sixth studio album was finally released in the U.S. in September 2006, nearly one year after it first surfaced in Europe.

  1. Rough and refined, and nearly fourteen years into their career, The Cardigans have produced one of the finest albums of the year. [#15]
  2. 80
    It does all go a bit Sheryl Crow occasionally... but the darker clouds remain. [Oct 2006, p.117]
  3. Super Extra Gravity is too deft to be too dark, though-- there's joy in its catharsis.
  4. 64
    This is the musical equivalent of a Volvo wagon. [#22, p.102]
  5. 60
    An uneven and slightly uneasy listen. [Nov 2005, p.112]
  6. Not quite as beautifully forlorn as 2003's Long Gone Before Daylight. [Nov 2005, p.123]
  7. 40
    With her bandmates providing roughed-up backing that's neither appropriate nor compelling, Persson comes off like a stylish girl with unnecessarily ratty hair. [Nov 2006, p.97]

    This is a 9.5 album to me. It's pretty obvious to understand which direction the band picked since the first track. The album features really consistent songs and it's really pleasantful to listen to, especially in its entirety. Expand
