It just takes one listen to Alison Goldfrapp's seductive voice to fall under her spell. It all sounds nice and comforting, but once you notice the lyrics of the songs and hear the unorthodox musical flourishes on Felt Mountain, you realise you're in for a slightly more twisted musical journey than you had expected.
A spectacular combination of myriad styles, ranging from Shirley Bassey, John Barry, Bjork, Portishead, Angelo Badalamenti, Burt Bacharach, and Kurt Weill, Goldfrapp and composer Will Gregory have put together an album that sounds oddly familiar, yet highly original. When Goldfrapp starts singing the jazzy chorus to 'Human ("are you human/or a dog"), it sounds like a lounge act from another planet.
Along with 'Human', the dark, sultry 'Lovely Head' ("Frankenstein would want your mind/your lovely head"), the bitter 'Paper Bag ("brown paper bag makes for a hat/when it rains on your head mate/cheers for that"), and the more conventional-sounding 'Pilots' kick off the record in fine fashion. However, the next three songs, the spacy, often indecipherable 'Deer Stop', the gentle, processed yodeling and dreamy scat singing on the title track, and the bizarre brass band flourishes on 'Oompa Radar' all take you into a musical twilight zone, where no musical influence, however odd, is safe.
Felt Mountain's brief sidetrack into the realm of the extremely eccentric sets you up for the album's finest moment, the utterly beautiful, yet sinister 'Utopia'. Over a steady beat and lush instrumentation arranged by Gregory with operatic backing vocals, Goldfrapp sings "I forget who I am/when I'm with you/there's no reason/there's no sense" before gently intoning "fascist baby" in the chorus.

I really liked this CD. alot, but it's not as good as i expected. Supernature and Black Cherry are just wonderful. so if you happen to want to get into Goldfrapp don't work backwards or else this won't be appreciated for how good it really is.

Alison's Goldfrapp's voice is just amazing. Nice collection of smooth, entrancing songs, just don't expect anything upbeat like the "Black Cherry" CD. Highlights for me include Lovely Head and Utopia (Lovely Head is featured in the film "My Summer of Love" and is where I was introduced to Goldfrapp). If you like more upbeat danceable tunes, go for their next CD (Black Cherry). This is an amazing CD to lounge back and enjoy.

I had been EXTREMELY into Goldfrapp's singles Twist and Strict Machine for about 9 months before I even considered checking this CD out. People told me this album was really really strange - and while that's not a reason to avoid it, I did. However, I listened to Utopia which had originally been just ok in my opinion, and it COMPLETELY envloped me in it's beauty. I watched the video for Human and fell in love with Human. I had to buy this CD - so I did. I must say, in my opinion this CD is one of the best CD's out there. It's truly amazing.
Lovely Head (9/10) - The first single with a very strange video (it has 2 videos, both very strange). Great opening track. The whistling in the beginning really does add to the song. Overrall a great chill song.
Paper Bag (10/10) - Absolutely gorgeous song with a genius intro. This is probably tied with Horse Tears for the most emotional song on the CD. Very very chill song that could easily induce tears. One of the best on this CD.
Human (10/10) - Another genius intro (GREAT video too!) - This track really builds up over the entire course of the song, climaxing at the last chorus. It's the most upbeat song on the CD with a mix of electronica and big band sounds. The big band sounds have a very James Bond quality to them, mixed with the violins of course. It sounds like it could actually BE IN a James Bond movie. An AWESOME track and one of the best songs on this CD.
Pilots (10/10) - At first I didn't really like Pilots but now Pilots is seriously one of my favorite Goldfrapp songs. Accompanied by a very original (and great, of course) video, this song has strange lyrics that fit extremely well. Very, very chill song. The chorus on Pilots is beautiful. The violins in this song are eerie, alluring, and gorgeous all at once.

Sorry to be the dissenting opinion here, but this album is not that great. Allison Goldfrapp is unconvincing, and lacks the charisma to be heard over this overproduced and highly derivative mess. High-tech glitchery and slick production (yes, even horn sections and strings) can never make up for weak songs and a weak performance. Must I remind you all of some of the formerly successful members of this lame music genre; Deep Forest, Enigma, Dead Can Dance, Enya, and Portishead, to name a few. This is commercial pop music for the middle-aged. Yawn. Skip this and go strait to Bjork's album Vespertine.

I got this album after hearing one of her tracks on a TV commercial. At the first listen, I thought, "This is a nice enough album. A little eccentric in spots, but I like that." At the second listen, I already had gotten hooked on certain parts of some of the tracks. By the third listen, I was completely addicted. Now I can't stop listening to it!
It's mellow *and* dramatic without being >ahem< melodramatic. The vocals range from extremely intimate, for-your-ears-only, and childlike, to operatic and machine-filtered. The lyrics are somehow very affecting despite (or because of?) their frequent nonsensical quality.
There is a nice blend of organic and generated sound in the instrumental layers. (It's often difficult to tell which is which.) There's probably nothing that would have prepared me for the eclectic mix of styles, such as the tuba/polka sounds of "Oompa Radar."
Overall, a perfect album for summer listening.
