Gran Turismo is the fourth studio album by Swedish band The Cardigans, released internationally on 19 October 1998 and in November 1998 in the United States. It features a darker and more moody type of music, mixing with more electronic sounds. Gran Turismo is the fourth studio album by the Swedish band The Cardigans, released internationally in 1998. Album 1998 11 Songs. Gran Turismo. The Cardigans. With Lovefool, the Cardigans catapulted from a cult favorite to an international phenomenon. Instead of being happy with their success, they fretted about their artistic credibility, concerned that they were seen as merely a light pop band instead of an ironic pop band. This is usually a danger sign for any young band, since it results in a self-conscious departure from form - and that is exactly what Gran Turismo, the follow-up to First Band on the Moon, is. Gran Turismo Sport Intro With The Cardigans My Favorite Game Music - Продолжительность: 3:37. The Cardigans - My Favourite Game . Released 1998. Gran Turismo is a trip-hop album following the lead of grim meisters Portishead. The CD is punctuated with distorted, muted, uncomplicated guitar riffs and keyboard effects that often sound like a harpsichord played through a fuzz box. Nina Persson's slightly aching, sleepy little cutesy lead vocals sound as frictionless as rubbing two ice cubes together. Although the skies are grayer here, the one familiar musical element is their simple yet compelling rhythm structures, as evidenced in their jazz-informed drum patterns. If the Cardigans weren't competent musicians, this album would. Released: Nov 1998
Der Bat
a bit noisier than i was expecting, probably a bit of bad luck judging by the comments (not super noisy, just more than i expected, i expected it to be almost quiet). Other than that if you dont get a scuffed disc or whatever the issue was with mine (specially noticeable in between like half or a bit more of the songs) it has some decent/good to great mastering, wish my copy was noiseless.
Wow! Sounds great. Great definition. Wide sound. Gran Turismo has never sounded that good before.
Wouahou, this remaster sounds really good, kudos to Ryan Smith !No skip on Higher on my copy.I ordered first band and emmerdale also and need also to listen to those. If the quality is the same I'll buy the other 3 also !
Ryan Smith didn’t cut this, it was Joe Nino-Hernes. He’s another mastering engineer at Sterling...that’s what the JN-H stands for in the deadwax ????
Flat, clean, of the best reissues out there. I initially bought this and First Band On The Moon. Now I’m thinking of getting the entire catalogue. I have the Life first pressing but it still won’t stop me from getting the reissue (with the original tracklist). Well done! The Cardigans reissues took a while coming but the wait was definitely worth it!
I bought all six, and i'm happy to say they all sound wonderful, good job.
Absolutely stunning sound quality. Perfectly flat and centered pressing, zero surface noise, dark black backgrounds etc. Over the years I've owned multiple copies of the Simply Vinyl and original Stockholm Records vinyl pressings all in flawless, like new condition. This bests them all. It's so good.
You have never heard Gran Turismo sound this good ! Amazing pressings..all these new ones !
Perfect remaster! Zero surface noise, very rich and detailed sound.
Incredible remaster! this album finally has the vinyl pressing that it deserves
Huh? Neither the Swedish original nor the SV and Universal reissues were bad so I'm not sure what you are implying here.
Steel balls
Nice to see that this new cut was done by Sterling Sound, haven’t listened yet but that’s promising.
Can someone tells me how this version sounds since it has been remastered?
It sounds AWESOME. Amazing range and clarity. I had concerns about it but after repeated listening, I can say it is amazing.
Not getting it. However I do wash all my records before I play them .
Yes, and one other track on Side B that escapes my memory. I cleaned the record and it seemed to solve the first skip but not the latter.
It sounds just great man, as well as all the other 5 albums that have been remastered. I listened to them on a shit turntable and they sounded stunning and dynamic, really superior pressing.
Theres a little skip on Higher yeah but it was sorted after a cleaned the record with a cloth.
Did you have skip at side:B Track 1? I Had one too.
What's the issue that you are having with the record?
It sounds amazing! But I'm having to send mine back as there's an issue with Track 1 of Side B. Anyone else getting this or just me?
