Notes:
The Cardigans' second album, released in March 1995 in Sweden and in Japan in April of the same year.

It was also their first album to see a true international release, in May 1995, their debut Emmerdale having been available only in Sweden and Japan at the time.

For the countries where Life was the band's first release, the track list was altered to include tracks from Emmerdale ('Sick And Tired', 'Rise And Shine', 'After All' and 'Sabbath Bloody Sabbath').

In return, 'Pikebubbles', 'Sunday Circus Song' and 'Closing Time' are only available on the Swedish and Japanese releases.

Sad to say this was a real bummer...read some glowing reviews of the pressing so I picked up an import copy. Right out of the gate there was noticeable distortion in the grooves on the first track...this happened on several other tracks, along with some nasty pops/bumps to boot. The music is wonderfully mastered but this pressing (at least on my copy) - while generally quiet - has a handful of scars. Also the repro print of the cover/sleeve seems not as sharp or correctly color balanced as the original. It's a really great album...shame this happened :/

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.

It's just great that this version includes original album with all tracks from Swedish edition. Rarely seen adequate change.
