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, Franois 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.

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".
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.
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!!!
