Super Extra Gravity follows the lead of 2004's earnest Gone Before Daylight, but with slightly harder, more jagged edges. But whilst lyrically Gone... is set in a bubble of an intense relationship going right and wrong, SEG takes inspiration from farther afield. Religion is one theme; in "Godspell". While "Don't Blame Your Daughter" reads like a letter giving her ex-husband and children's father a damned good ticking off. Nina goes on to explore the ill-effects of too much alcohol on a raging jealous tongue with the best song title ever, "I Need Some Fine Wine, And You, You Need To Be Nicer".

But dysfunctional relationships are a common theme, with old song "And Then You Kissed Me" gaining a sequel here. There are no great departures instrumentally and The Cardigans continue their evolution into a serious, spacious indie group with polished songs.

It seems that the ironic, chatty Cardigans of Emmerdale are gone forever, but they're still sounding damn fine.
