Falling for Goldfrapp

I guess I've had my head up my ass, because I've yet to buy a Golfrapp album. I got the feisty "Ooh La La" as a free download ages ago, and I later added "Fly Me Away," which sticks in the brain like a magnet and makes me try to dance (not a good thing). Now comes "A&E," the first single from Seventh Tree, due Feb. 26. The buzz is that this album changes direction, but "A&E" is an instantly lovable tune with a fine video centering on Ms. Golfrapp in a dancing forest. I should just give it up and go place my preorder for the album now …

I have to say, that I was one of those that didn't really get into the other Goldfrapp sound, but I am really loving A&E, and the new album (which is their old sound, apparently). I like bands that have the ability to adapt and change, you know?!

WOO! The new album! Thanks for the update. I have been waiting for quite a bit. I liked the first album immensely and I found the second and third to be just alright, nothing to scream about. Heh.

Felt Mountain is a work of sheer brilliance. Highly recommended.

On the first couple listens, A&E was pleasant enough, but I am now completely obsessed with it. A beautiful melody; the lyrics are delightfully clever; and I love that dancing forest in the video.

Sorry for the lack of action on the Jeblog in the last couple weeks ... I'll be getting back into the routine in a day or two.

You may want to wait for the limited edition release. I have held back from getting the album despite having heard the entire album before the release date when a friend gave me a leaked copy.

Of course, that is if the limited edition had anything worthwhile?
