The opening song takes you deep within the blue folds of the ocean, and by the last song, you’re breathing air again. An amazing piece of work, at times elated, sadistic, and mysterious all in one line. Skindiving brings new heights to electro-emotional pop, and this is a sure buy if you were at all into the Cardigans last release, Gran Turismo. The best song on the disc has got to be the hauntingly upbeat tune carefully entitled “Sunbeam,” although a bad one hardly exists. Submarine not only makes you dive into the music but into the words as well with deep lyrics that weave pictures and stories in between your fully attentive ears.
