  • Goldfrapp: Alison Goldfrapp (vocals, keyboards); Will Gregory (keyboards, strings).
  • When Goldfrapp's debut, FELT MOUNTAIN, appeared in 2000, no one was quite sure how to categorize the music, but that didn't stop fans and critics alike from gushing about it. A collaboration between singer-keyboardist-songwriter Allison Goldfrapp and composer/producer Will Gregory, Goldfrapp is rooted in the heavy-lidded, ambient soundscapes of trip-hop, yet exhibits an equal interest in various other styles ranging from jazz to cabaret to film music.
  • On FELT MOUNTAIN, Goldfrapp sometimes sounds trapped in an Ennio Morricone-styled tableau: all whistling and spooky wind-swept vistas. Elsewhere, the duo exudes the cool, tongue-in-cheek attitude of a Nancy Sinatra and Lee Hazelwood project. Yet Goldfrapp are more than just postmodern tricksters: their songs are substantive, and their productions and electronica-charged arrangements are never less than outstanding. This is the first (and will likely remain one of the best) offerings from this impressively inventive duo.
Professional Reviews
Rolling Stone (5/10/01, pp.88,90) - 4 stars out of 5 - "...Fun and rewarding....Goth-rock and movie music have never waltzed together as they do on this debut..."

Q (1/01, p.91) - Included in Q's "50 Best Albums of 2000".

Q (10/00, p.117) - 4 stars out of 5 - "...Goldfrapp's haunting, desperately romantic vocals are mesmerizing on their own....Equally serene and sinister. FELT MOUNTAIN is a beautiful album."

Uncut (10/00, p.82) - 3 stars out of 5 - "...[A] netherworld of espionage soundtracks and trembling torch-song vocals..."

Alternative Press (12/00, p.100) - 3 out of 5 - "...Epic, cinematic, nightclub dirges reminiscent of a depressed, severely doped-up Air....scarily satisfying..."

Muzik (10/00, p.74) - 5 out of 5 - "...Runs the gamut of heady passion, tunefully melancholic meandering and high-falutin' operatic gymnastics....a wash of tuneful accessibility. A must."

CMJ (9/25/00, p.23) - "...Unpredictable and crafty....specializing in torch songs turned epic..."

Melody Maker (10/17/00, p.59) - 3 stars out of 5 - "...Fairly inoffensive coffee-table, cinematic, trip-hop stuff. Fleetingly pleasant..."

Mojo (Publisher) (10/00, p.100) - "...[A] dream-like concoction of darkly erotic torch songs....brilliantly realized....Warmly recommended."

NME (Magazine) (9/16/00, p.37) - 6 out of 10 - "...Cold, desolate and old-fashioned....drawing on the orchestral ululations of Roy Budd and Ennio Morricone..."
