Victory at Gran Turismo
MP3: The Cardigans - Erase/Rewind
MP3: The Cardigans - Hanging Around
WE'RE JUST ABOUT TO WRAP UP THE CARDIGANS WEEK HERE AT FUCK YEAH! GO TEAM!
"Gran Turismo" is a wild card of an album, it sticks out in the Cardigans' discography, abandoning their pop roots almost completely in favour of electronic sounds and darker tones. At times, it can be the most rewarding of albums from them and it makes you wonder what would happen if they revisited the ideas birthed from this time in the band. I'd like to see one like this again, at least for a spell.
