5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Electric, 23 Sep 2004
I have liked Goldfrapp since Felt Mountain first appeared on the shelves in HMV, every song is charged with sexuality and emotion-though it wasn't until I saw them live at the Hammersmith Apollo last year that I truly loved them.

Felt mountain has been my favourite album for around two years now, and after hearing the new live tracks on their last tour, I was expecting more of the same from Black Cherry. The title track, deep honey and hairy trees do have the same lush strings and mountain range ambiance as felt mountain, but are actually the weakest tracks. What remains is stomping, glam-rock electronica, twisted vocals and big beats! The vocals are less weimar and more kylie-gone-bad! Twist is such a cool pop song- think one of the minogue sisters duetting with aphex twin and singing about oral sex. Stand out tracks are train, strict machine and tiptoe. The impossible has happened- felt mountain avalanched x
