Although I love Alison Goldfrapp, I'd lie if I tried to explain her. File her under 'Weird' - a woman who sang a capella while milking a very anxious cow. (Yes, it really did happen...) But she has a powerful voice, her band has a strong sound. And it all comes to down-tempo elegant weirdness. It seems to work. You'd be a fool to ignore her weirdness. Alison is going places, and she's hauling her bizarre band with her.
This very strange EP works well. "Utopia" is the highlight of her debut CD, creepy catchy & corny. Perfectly Goldfrapp. While the less adventurous scratch their heads, real fans need to hear the unreleased "UK Girls - Let's Get Physical". With its bizarre down-tempo production, it's almost a Goth anthem - it's also kinda dumb. Goldfrapp in a nutshell. The included live version of "Human" is exceptional, it swings while the studio version nags. The other 5 mixes of "Utopia" are barely worth mentioning.
I can't wait for the next album, just to explain the first one.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not a great set of remixes. Nov. 5 2001
By chrisjr
Format:Audio CD
Goldfrapp is a spectacular accomplishment as a band and a personality, but this CD of remixes falls flat like so many remix CDs do. If you do get this, do so because there's a bunny on the cover, that's about it. There isn't even one track I would recommend. While the Spanish "Calexico" cover of Utopia, is unexpected, it's not terribly outstanding. And the Let's Get Physical cover of the UK Girls I can do without, though to Goldfrapp's credit they do a reasonable job of turning this into a "Goldfrapp" sounding track. Possibly the only track of genuine interest on this CD is the live version of Human, which sounds alarmingly close to the album version but with out the intense low end. And there's a Utopia dance remix and a blippity electronica remix--the usual fair. It's just that the proper album is already so fantastic these tracks don't explore that. But if you have a burning love of remixes, or you like to dance, you might like this CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars U-TOOOOOOOO-PIA... U-TOOOOOOOO-PIA Aug. 16 2001
Format:Audio CD
The first time I heard Utopia (the DNA Mix, not included on this CD single), I couldn't believe my ears! Not only was this song haunting, but it sounded like the resurrection of one of my favorite industrial bands... Front 242!!! Alison Goldfrapp's vocals and melancholy lyrics sound so much like the Baroque style of Jean Luc Demeyer that it is uncanny. Even the synthesizer sequencing and drumbeats sound as if they were engineered by 242 themselves. This is the kind of song that will stick in your head for days and you find yourself humming it every five minutes. I can even hear it playing in my dreams at night: U-TOOOOOOOOOO-PIA... U-TOOOOOOOOOOO-PIA...
