Product Description

We Are Glitter is a collection of the best remixes of tracks from Goldfrapp's critically acclaimed "Supernature." Adventurous and risk-taking, We Are Glitter celebrates and re-imagines Goldfrapp and Supernature with each track selected by the band. The album features work from white-hot remixers The Flaming Lips, DFA, C2 (aka Carl Craig), Benny Benassi, Ewan Pearson, Fran‡ois K, Alan Braxe & Fred Falke and many more, most of which have not been previously available commercially. We Are Glitter highlights include alluring remixes of such songs as "Number 1" and "Ooh La La," both of which hit #1 on Billboard's Hot Dance Club Play chart. We Are Glitter also contains the special bonus track "Strict Machine (We Are Glitter mix)," a song from their second studio album Black Cherry, remixed by Goldfrapp themselves. This new version of "Strict Machine" also appears on the soundtrack for the film Miami Vice and the original album version has just been licensed for use in the new Verizon TV advertising campaign.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not your average remix CD Oct. 24 2006
By Melissa Niksic - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
"We Are Glitter" is a unique compilation of remixes from Goldfrapp's breathtaking album "Supernature," which was released last year. This selection of twelve remixes was selected by the band themselves and contains eleven "Supernature" remixes, plus a new remix of the song "Strict Machine," which is from Goldfrapp's "Black Cherry" album. I was surprised that my favorite song from the "Supernature" album, "Ooh La La," is my least favorite remix on "We Are Glitter." It's not a bad remix by any means, but it's very "clubby" compared to the other tracks, which are all outstanding and truly innovative. Favorite remixes on this album include "Satin Chic," "Lovely 2 C U," and "Number 1," but I seriously love every single track! If you're a new Goldfrapp fan, I advise you to check out "Supernature" before listening to this album...you'll appreciate it much more that way. For die-hard fans like myself, however, "We Love Glitter" is a nice and unexpected treat in between Goldfrapp's major album releases. I love this CD!

5.0 out of 5 stars Another winner from Goldfrapp Oct. 18 2006
By Tom - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Why does Goldfrapp remain one of music's hidden treasures? Yes, they have received some good notices but ask a number of people if they have heard of Goldfrapp, and I guarantee you will get many people asking "Who's that?"

Which is too bad because Goldfrapp continues to be one of music's most interesting acts. Their last two albums "Black Cherry" and "Supernature" feature seductive electro-pop songs that range from upbeat to moody. It's hard to pigeonhole them yet they have a distinct sound.

"We Are Glitter" is a compilation of remixes of songs from their past two albums, with an emphasis on their most recent, "Supernature". Remix albums are usually a mixed bag; often you can only find a good mix amongst overlong and indulgent mixes. But "We Are Glitter" actually works as an album. The remixes are top-notch, and can be distinguished from each other.

What I also like about this album is that Goldfrapp doesn't pander to club culture. Yes, some of the songs make you want to dance, but the remixes are more concerned with establishing mood and atmosphere rather than increasing the beat for house/circuit mixes. The best mixes are "Lovely 2 C U", the "Ride a White Horse" mixes and "Number 1".

Goldfrapp could release another volume of mixes because there are many other mixes out there of their work ready to be compiled.

I predict this compilation will be a success with Goldfrapp's fans but unfortunately I think Goldfrapp will remain music's best-kept secret.

Check out "We Are Glitter".

5.0 out of 5 stars "We are Glitter" is just GREAT Oct. 27 2006
By Abdiel Ruiz-Rojas - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I must tell that I'm picky when it comes about remixes. But We Are Glitter is an exception. Every single song is amazing. My favorite one is Slide In (DFA Remix) I don't care it takes too long, sounds as original as Satin Chic. The remixes of Satin Chic are really good, but in my opinion, any of this is as good as the original version of this song (So sad it wasn't a single). The Lovely 2 CU, You never know, Number 1 and White horse mixes are excellent! And Strict Machine is simply the best. I thought this was going to be the same as the Live CD's edition, but only some parts of this mix were used to extend the original version in their live shows, also it's catchy and, well, is everywhere today!

Putting all together, We Are Glitter is the Best Remixes CD I've ever heard! But you should listen Supernature (My #1 album) before listening We Are Glitter. Every single Goldfrapp material is highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Better than Supernature Oct. 17 2006
By Jack - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Nearly all the remixes on this collection have been previously released in Europe on various singles, but that doesn't make this a bad collection by any means. Many of We Are Glitter's tracks are distinct improvements on the originals, and the sheer variety of interpretations makes this a much more interesting proposition than Supernature. Get it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Complation Oct. 22 2006
By Juggs - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is an outstanding complation of the remixes off of 'Supernature.' Also, it includes the new remix of 'Strict Machine', which seems to be everywhere these days! The 'Lovely 2 See U' remix is the best, hands down.

The remix of 'Fly Me Away' is the weakest....the original is the best. There are just some songs you don't remix...'Fly Me Away' is one of them.

Overall, this CD is a must for Goldfrapp fans. Their music is amazing and always surprising. Buy This!!!
