A Camp - Colonia

Reviewer :

Artist discography


Some albums grow from small to giant size within days, I never really cared for The Cardigans before but their lead singer Nina Persson sound so much better in A Camp.
They won 4 Swedish Grammys for their first album from 2001 and now they´re back with the 2nd album "Colonia".
We can also find Nina´s husband Nathan Larson and Atomic Swing leader Niclas Frisk in the band, there are also guest appearances from James Iha (Smashing Pumpkins) and Mark Linkous (Sparklehorse) on "Colonia".
You might remember the 2001 hit "I can buy you" which is pretty nice but the new single "Stronger than Jesus" is even better, I think romantic pop is a good description of their sound.
The last 4 tracks isn´t on the same level as the other songs which is holding me back from giving this album more than 3,5 stars.
But songs like "The crowning", "Love has left the room", "Here are many wild animals", "Chinatown" and "Golden teeth and silver medals" are nothing but excellent.

Did you know that?

Ronnie James Dio left Rainbow because Blackmore wanted the band to go into a more radio friendly direction, Graham Bonnet replaced Dio on the following "Down to earth" that included the Top 10 hits "All night long" and "Since you´ve been gone".
