I've heard the entire album streamed online, and "Train" was the first song I listened to. It kicks off right away with a bang as heavy, crunching synths dominate and soon enough Alison's ghostly voice floats above the clamor singing "Plastic brain scar, I want laser." I was loving every minute of it. This isn't a song similar to those found on "Felt Mountain" -- and that's a good thing. The first album was brilliant, mysterious, soothing. This album is darker, deeper and deadlier. Imagine a rose -- beautiful, vibrant, but of course it has thorns (and what is a rose without thorns? not a rose anymore) and it is capable of drawing blood. Goldfrapp have been getting a lot of press lately for this new direction they're supposedly heading in, abandoning the format and sound of their first release and going all clubby and disco-y. I don't see it like that at all. This has always seemed to me like a completely understandable development -- bands grow, they never stay the same -- and we really don't want them to, otherwise they become predictable, a formula, stale. There is nothing predictable or stale in Goldfrapp's new collection. Each of the songs is outstanding, especially "Train" which I particularly love to play. Goldfrapp hasn't let us down, but you may think so if you're so eager to live in the past - if they had done an album similar in vein or exactly the same as "Felt Mountain" then everyone would be complaining that they were copying themselves and not trying anything new. Ack. Oh yes, one more thing, the previous reviewer commented on "the poor artwork." As with "Felt Mountain," Alison (who was an art student before pursuing music) designed and supervised the artwork and layout. I especially like the cover of the "Train" single where we find a wolf head atop Alison's body replacing her own noggin. Scrumptious!

First of all - If you, like me loved Felt Mountain, you may not like this single.
Train is the first single to be released from goldfrapp's soon to be released Black Cherry album. Over 500 000 copies of the debut Felt Mountain was sold.
This time around goldfrapp has left the wood and mountains, and entered the disco and clubs. Train is a 80-ties themed tune with goldfrapp repetetive vocalization. An odd choice for a first single, and disappointingly poor. A Village Hall Mix of the title track and the video is also included. But best is the b-side, Big Black Cloud, Little White Lie - a stunning piece. The artwork of the single is quite terrible, and not what I expected from mute.
And to compared with the Black Cherry album?:
Black Cherry has to stand out tracks Hairy Trees and Deep Honey (spooky and my favourite goldfrapp song ever). Sadly most of the song, as well as goldfrapp's voice, drownes in drooning sounds and beats. (* * * / three stars).
For your information: The debut album is copy protected.

Different isn't worse, it's just different. That goes for the cover art and the song train. Train isn't a disco song. It's not eighties either. It's electronic music, just like the first album was. I just listened to the 4 tracks on this album twice in a row while riding my bike, and it was fun fun fun. Can't wait to get Black Cherry. Allison Goldfrapp has a beautiful voice, and this is a good single.
