Goldfrapp's latest blends the lush soundscapes of Felt Mountain with the disco of Black Cherry and re-invents Glam Rock. Yes they've even got guitars (or at least something that sounds like a guitar run though the filters of all the worlds grungiest analogue synths). Alison croons through the tracks like a diva on spacedust while the synth textures and bleeps are driven by an assortment of 80's sounding beats all swirled up in magic sonic blender. "Ride a White Horse" is the best example of this, and you'll have heard "Oh La La" on a TV ad. If you're looking for the chill out of Felt Mountain that's here too on tracks like "Let It Take You". Superbe.

Another complete and total belter from the Wonderful Goldfrapp. Why can't all cds give me the option of being surround by such gorgeous and head expanding sounds? I cannot recommend this release enough. If you're a fan of Glam Disco and you have a 5.1 system somewhere in your home (and let's face it any Tom, Dick or Harry can get Dolby Digital'd for a pittance these days), I suggest you buy this RIGHT NOW, crank it up and freak the neighbours out!

The Supernature album is - compared to most current popular music - an electric streak of eighties-revival originality despite the apparent contradiction.
However, a good album though it is, if it is compared to the previous Goldfrapp album (Black Cherry) it perhaps loses its shine.
The subtle yet daring lyrics as seen in "Strict Machine" are reflected though not overshadowed in "Ooh La La", and the musical accompaniment very much of a similar nature. The tune itself is racy and deep, but echoes too strongly with "Strict Machine".
Other tracks draw parallels with those on the previous album. "Let It Take You" is similar to "Black Cherry", a soothing chill track for those times when "Ooh La La" is a bit too much. However, where perhaps the music in this track is better, the lyrics on "Black Cherry" were metaphorically brilliant and this is unfortunately not the case in "Let It Take You".
However, I found the album most enjoyable. Within it can be found a specific genre given a full and broad exploration. It is totally different from regular popular music - Goldfrapp seem to be exploiting a very personal niche by bringing some of their tracks into the popular eye. I feel this is a good thing for them, but for the buyer who is looking for something more outrageous and fun as the previous album then perhaps a second thought is necessary.
If, like me you have a media player on your computer, then play both albums on the same playlist. They go together like non-identical yet similar twins, both higlighting pros and indeed cons of the other.
A confident and brilliant album, but not as breathtaking as "Black Cherry". 4 stars.

The album is excellent. Why don't shops tell us that this Limited Edition disc is an SACD hybrid disc (will play on a standard CD player, an SACD player and also an SACD compatible DVD player)? The sound will blow you away! Also second disc has video with 5.1 surround sound (Dolby & DTS). Superb!

This great album is presented in 5.1 on both discs!!!!
In Dolby digital on the DVD - then again on the CD which is in fact an SACD/CD hybrid with a multichannel layer on it!
Home cinema/hi-res multichannel system owners rejoice.

Listened to this a few times now and yes, it is a grower.
I loved Felt Mountain and was initially dissapointed by Black Cherry, but that too grew on me.
Supernature has its more melodic moments, and there are some awesome soundscapes throughout the cd, but very few of the soft, melodic tunes found on FM. Still, a couple of the tracks, number 10 in particular, hark back to those days but overall, more of a 'Black Cherry' than a 'Felt Mountain'. MR.

I won't repeat whats been said in full other than to say this is a wonderfull Album (I bought it after hearing it once).
One small word of warning to iPod (and other MP3 players) owners though the CD uses a new copy protection that prevents the Album from being imported with iTunes or any other application I've found. In other words you can play it on your home/car CD player but it won't work on your iPod.

'Black Cherry' was where I started with Goldfrapp, and this is a development from that sound. Unfortunately, it's a development towards a blander, less nuanced version, and towards a more polished electro-glam-disco type of thing. I guess Goldfrapp just wanted to have some fun.

'Oh la la' is indeed v groovy, and 'White Horse' and 'You Never Know' come close. Trouble is, when you go for pastiche, you sacrifice originality.

Lyrically, too, where 'Black Cherry' and - especially - 'Felt Mountain' were richly elusive and allusive, 'Supernature' goes in for more banal references to drugs and sex.

I still love 'em, and would rather listen to this than 99.9% of other product.

A further caution - the 'opendisc' edition I bought promises access to 'additional material', but due to some software glitch or other, the thing won't open on my computer(s), so this 'additional material' amounts to several minutes of (me) swearing.
