It's always unfortunate when a band with true talent gets lost amidst a sea of snobbery after a commercially successful song. Such was the fate of The Cardigans. We all know, remember, and (secretly) love the song "Lovefool." Receiving heavy radio and video play as well as accompanying the soundtrack to the Leo DiCaprio starring remake of Romeo & Juliet all helped to secure the band the unfair and inaccurate title of "one-hit wonder" (as well as serve as a song for me to emote to as I endured the drama that was my junior high relationship with a girl named Sara [note: Sara is not her real name (note: her real name was Sarah)]). But the Cardigans, in my opinion, remain one of the better indie-pop outfits to come out of the nineties, with each album being full of unheard gems. They've recently released a two-disc best of album which provides a great start for any casual listener. Also, frontwoman Nina Persson is HOT.
