a little bit scary
on 6 May 2003
Black Cherry is a curious album which merges Alison Goldfrapp's distinctive, breathy vocal with harsh electronic music. Whooshing synth sounds whizz around like lasers conjuring up images of Dr. Who, and whilst this is impressive, it is not altogether nice - rather like a strange dream which enthralls and frightens.
There is loveliness, for example on the title track, and most notably on the luxurious and slow 'Deep Honey', but mostly this is an album on the assault. Goldfrapp want to whip you and scratch you and actually, I think, haunt you a little.
