    I hope we get a new Cardigans or A Camp record soon. Doesn't matter which - both bands are brilliant. Nina's solo stuff is just okay...

    Buen disco, bastante completo, no esperaba menos de ella. Pero sigo echando muchísimo de menos su voz en temas más electrónicos. Me gustaría que volviera a la era "Gran Turismo", que considero que es un album perfecto, no sólo de los Cardigans, sino en general. Bueno, al "Animal Heart" le doy un 8.5/10. Notable alto.
