This review is from: Head First (Audio CD)
Yeaeh, this is something of a disappointment. There's little on this "long" player that stands out. Rocket is a good track but the others, while being inoffensive, quite good in parts and with some lovely noises courtesy of ELO and early Vangelis, are fairly unremarkable by Goldfrapp standards, which, it must be said, are high. Black Cherry is an amazing album with some truly astounding music on it, a real treasure; 7th Tree also has lots of excellent stuff on it as has their other albums, each of which has plenty that's outstanding. The only track that comes close on 'Head First' is the last track, Voicething, by far the most interesting track on here, it sounds like it's from Philip Glass's soundtrack to the film, Koyaanisqatsi. It's really good. 'Head First' is underwhelming and very short. But you might love it... Really nice cover, though.
