I don't think it's possible for this CD's blend of techno, trip-hop, orchestral backgrounds and breathy lyrics to sound any more beautiful. I listened to "Felt Mountain" a while ago and maybe one or two songs caught my attention, but not enough to purchase the CD. I enjoy the synth-pop, trance-like sounding techno on "Black Cherry" infinitely more than the choice of music on Goldfrapp's previous album.
Just the other day I was admiring the music in the background of the new COKE commercial with Kate Beckingsale by the pool...imagine my surprise when I buy the CD and find the very song is #4- Tiptoe!
Some favorites (and it was hard to choose)are: #2-"Train" #3-"Black Cherry" #4-"Tiptoe" and last, the song that prompted me to buy the CD in the first place (It's on a compilation CD called "Ultra Chilled") #6-"Hairy Trees". The fast songs, for example, "Train" and "Twist" are extremely upbeat and undeniably sexy while the slower ones- "Black Cherry", "Hairy Trees", and "Forever"- have an enticing, sensual, mind-drugging effect which gives you chills.
Now when I go back and listen to "Black Cherry" for the hundredth upon hundredth time- I'll find a new favorite! This CD by Goldfrapp is simply amazing!
