Beautifully haunting songs but the whole album is a little too one-paced
on 23 October 2013
I love all Goldfrapp's albums and agree with the other reviewers who say this is a welcome return to the early Felt Mountain days. Alison's haunting vocals and the beautiful production are dreamy throughout and will no doubt get picked off again for use as TV background music. A bonus is that the lyrical content is more important than on some of their albums. I love every number individually but I just find that when listening to the album straight through, there is no great variety in the mood or tempo. The complete lack of danceable or German umpah numbers make this an album for either piecemeal or late night headphone listening!!
