Album of the year,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Tales of Us (Audio CD)
I read all the other reviews before writing my original review as I wondered what I was missing, having bought and loved all previous Goldfrapp albums. Initially I found this a monotonous piece of work but talk about an album growing on you - the quality of composition and musical craft is magnificent. Since buying the album I have seen Goldfrapp 3 times in concert and these songs are really powerful in the atmosphere of live performance. Interestingly, the band realise fans want more 'traditional' Goldfrapp fare too, and don't relay on Tales of Us to be the whole of a concert. I do wish they had included a more upbeat song in the middle of the album, to give a change of mood, but what is there, is impeccable.
