A bit dull and Supernaturey but not a bad effort. Surely this could result in some US airplay?

I have to give We Radiate a second chance soon, because it left absolutely nothing. I find it strange how Goldfrapp have failed this big :P

Sounds uninspired and rather tired.
Your right Blondini, it almost sounds like a complete copy from another song, the melody is suspiciously familiar!

Not a big fan of the song, and I'm actually kinda disappointed they're resorting to doing a Vampire Diaries song, which IMO is on the same level as Twilight. But if it does help their career, more power to them. They deserve to be one of the biggest acts in the biz.

I, unfortunately, cannot see how this could somehow benefit Goldfrapp, it would then be on a extremely unidentifiable level.

They have deserved that title since the first album got released and for their fearless will (willingness?) to constantly seek new ground.

Altough, I fear that the very, very sad "too-old-border" is passed and that Alison as front person no longer stands out enough (or in the expected, current style) to be given radio support or young people's respect.

But... I'm positive there's a few more albums to come and I'm also not worried that they could ever fail to create a new pice of art. :D

:o How could you say that Vinny? Alison Goldfrapp looks fantastic for her age & you'd never guess she was in her early 40s.

She's in her 40s? :o I thought low to mid-30s at the most.

":o" exactly! I remember reading it in Q magazine around the time when Seventh Tree came out. I was literally agape - I think she has one of those timeless faces, like an English Rose.

I was shocked to find out Alison was born in 1966. She takes very good care of herself.

Great point there!!

Allison has confirmed that their contract with EMI has ended (hooray!!). so we will be getting a best of album next, which they have agreed to do (so I guess we will get 3-4 new tracks hopefully)

So now a case of looking for a new label that will get them the success they deserve hopefully, as the promotion of their latest album has been virtually non existant

Will Gregory had a piece from his upcoming balloon man opera played on a concert on Radio 3 last week: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b00vj08j

Listen there! Jarvis Cocker introduces it - Jonny Greenwood has a piece in the concert, too.

I am surprised that they've parted ways with Mute. I know Head First didn't sell as strong as previous albums, but I'd still argue that they are their second biggest act besides Depeche Mode. Mute remains loyal to Erasure and those guys have been poor sellers for a very long time.

I love them, ever since Black Cherry, and more specifically Train, I absolutely feel in love with. And they are one of those acts, I remained loyal to. I loved Black Cherry...their best album in my opinion. Felt Mountain, I went back to listen to. Supernature, for me, was a bit of a bittersweet blip, I loved the fact that they were getting tonnnes of recognition, but, material wise, I felt with that album in particular they lost a lot of integrity...Seventh Tree, back to the haunting beauty of Felt Mountain, and Head First, was pretty underrated too. Decent album, with a few standouts, including Rocket, which deserved to be a whooooole lot bigger.

In fact, Rocket, I covered, in a tribute-esque youtube cover, if interested, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nzyhrJ3l4fg

They deserve so much more attention! I've just fallen in total love with the Felt Mountain album all over again, it's absolutely sublime, nothing else can put me in this blissful mood!! 8-)

It's in my Top 5/10 all time list in fact, it's that great!

As you all know I’m a huge fan of anything and everything Goldfrapp! Today we have great news, as the duo are heading back to the studio to record new music for their sixth album!

Will Gregory told BBC6…

“I am ready to do it now, to get back to Goldfrapp will be a very refreshing change. We have tried sitting down and writing lists and having coffee to talk about it, but usually we just mess about, it’s good not to be too conscious about what you do.”

We have, as usual, lots of stuff in the bottom drawer which we rejected the first time round, but I expect we’ll want to start a fresh this time round.”

At the end of last year it was announced that Goldfrapp were no longer with EMI, and Alison spoke out about the future of the band…

“We are no longer with EMI. It’s exciting because it is kind of, like, ‘Wow, this is a whole new chapter really, what will we do and will anyone want us?’

This is exciting news. As fans may already know, you never know what to expect with a new Goldfrapp album – they always change their style!

Hope they do something like Bjorks Homogenic. They are possibly one of the most underrated bands ever

I am sorry if you feel offended Cmyk but your post got me loling as well! :lol: They have no roots, they are constantly in need of finding a genuine new sound, which they then explore, converts and if it sounds sophisticated enough for them to experimenting with, then they'll start recording.

The easiest way to describe my view on Goldfrapps music! I anticipate new records with them everyday, listening to Alison's voice is one of my favourite things to do in life. It's very beautiful.

Bring it on! 8-)
I hope the album will return to the sound of 'Supernature', as that's my fav. Goldfrapp album, but I'd be happy with anything really. They never disappoint. I also really enjoyed their 'Seventh Tree' album, so wether they go dance/pop or folky pop, I'll be fine :P

I agree completely!! :o Her voice IS sex undoubtedly, her voice is bliss! 8-) I really am excited for what they have on offer this time, I've loved all of their albums so very much, all different, all have amazing melodies and feeling!

Supernature was great but their weakest and that's my honest opinion, the singles were great but the album as a whole can not compete with their other albums!!

I still think their first 2 albums are the best, Felt Mountain & Black Cherry, both just totally up my street but in different ways! :P
