Throw me a Cardigans classic album

This is the first SR cd I bought too. Given that every SR/TJ album (except KZK) contains some less than ideal songs, I would say SS is the best and most accessible album to the casual listener. The tracks are very cohesive and it shows off the classic Ringo rock styles as well as some of her experiments with other genres, like recording tricks in Stoicism and techno in Yokushitsu and strings in Yami no Furu Ame. I really like SS a lot. I would definitely say it's a cut above MM (especially since her studio vocals aren't that good in MM).

Agreed, even though I like Life more.

Just to stay on topic, I was just listening through SS during math class yesterday and I no longer think Tsuki ni Makeinu is such a bad song anymore, it's just that intro that I really can't stand.

With that in mind, I remember Uki saying that Tsuki is his favourite solo SR song. I question his taste level.

Oh, that's interesting; I never knew that!! o_o But I like "Tsuki ni Makeinu" so his taste is a-okay with me.

This is a bit random, but did Ringo put make-up over her mole in the cover picture? o_O I just got this album today and noticed that her mole looked covered up, but I can't tell if it's just the blurriness. Anyway, I think she looks so different in that picture; her eyes look so big and cartoon-y. @_@

Ohh, so that's what the first pressing looked like. It must be so nice to have the album in a box... T_T

Where's Yamate-dori? Was it mentioned in "Tsumi to Batsu"? I remember the 'dori' part...

HOWEVAA

I dont think it's her best album. Even with the monster songs it has, it has other songs that really don't hit the mark as well. I can't tell if theyre really just mediocre or if its when put in comparison. I never listen to a song like Benkai Debussy when its not preceding Gips so it's hard to say.

Since my post about MM, I feel like I wanna put it above SS in my personal chart. But then I tell myself "Howevva, Honnou, Tsumi to Batsu, and Gips slaughter anything on MM..." so it's a push.
That is why I don't even try to put one SR album over the other, except on my own personal chart that I can't motivate properly to anyone.
