2003's 'Long Before Daylight' probably lost The Cardigans as many fans as they won. After plying their trade in sugar-coated indie pop, a move in to the middle of the road made them ideal fodder for Radio 2. In a way it's been a natural progression; as band members have matured, so has their musical output too. 'Super Extra Gravity' is similar but marginally younger-sounding if anything. The main beneficiary of the grown-up approach is singer Nina Persson whose jazzy delivery seems more at home in more sedate environments. On 'Overload' and 'Don't Blame Your Daughter', for example, she completely dominates the songs. Where the music is lacking, however, is on those inspired key changes that used to be the hallmark of The Cardigans' best work. Still, in 'I Need Some Fine Wine And You, You Need To Be Nicer' they have an original single, 'Godspell' is bouncy and rhythmic and 'And Then You Kissed Me II' draws the record to a refreshingly dark close. It would be interesting to see, however, whether the next record we hear from Nina Persson will be as a solo artist.
