With tongue firmly in cheek, the Cardigans decided to play up the candyfloss arrangements of their debut for second album Life. Where Emmerdale studied an introverted melancholy, Life is undiminished in both its independent-minded exuberance Hey Get Out of My Way and zest to enjoy life with others Daddy's Car, Gordon's Gardenparty. The incredible production and quality of arrangement from the debut are here also, even more strikingly crisp and spot-on. Outside of Sweden and Japan where debut Emmerdale had been released in 1994, the album was released as their first album as a compilation of tracks from both Emmerdale and Life. This version omits Pikebubbles, Sunday Circus Song and Closing Time, replacing them with Sick and Tired, Rise and Shine, Celia Inside, After All. and Sabbath Bloody Sabbath from Emmerdale.

Wonderful album! Still sounds fresh after nearly 25 years. The Universal lp reissue sounds quiet. Just keep in mind that it has different tracks vs. the UK release, which has a mix of tracks from Life and Emmerdale. I bought both titles, and the quality is worth the price I paid.
Official date for re-release: 1.2.2019. Five of them, all in all.
