MOJO - Abum of the month
  • Rumour has it it's reviewed as album of the month. New issue out tomorrow.
    Who would be so kind to buy and confirm/scan? ;)

    >>> http://www.mojo4music.com/magazine/

    Plus, some video updates:
    "GOLDFRAPP’S BROADLY EPONYM-THEMED new album, Tales Of Us (see review in MOJO 238), is accompanied by a series of stylish black and white films by Lisa Gunning in which Alison Goldfrapp has appeared as both an axe-murder and a murder victim (Jo) and now for the song Drew in a sort of sexually charged art-pop Brideshead Revisited, pensively remembering naked romps and spring woodland in a now empty stately home."

  • Wow, I might even pick up a copy if this turns out to be true, thanks for the Heads Up Holy Owl ;)
    It's a re-creation

  • Yes, it gets four stars.

    Double page spread (pp84-85).

    Reviewer David Hutcheon compares it to Scott Walker's "Scott 4", which as anyone knows, is a compliment.
  • Four still means most hardcore frappers will be giving it 5 ;)

    Straight to YT to listen to Scott 4. Yes, I can see it, definitely. Alison also plays Scott Walker when she DJs (Blue Room) I think....

  • Looks a good issue anyway, with the Sub-Pop CD and Nine Inch Nails feature too.

    Count me in!

    Also hoping for a nice cover shoot/story with either CLASH or Notion mag!!
    Would be rad and even make a lot of sense since the whole concept of the album is telling (a) story/ies and offers a lot of opportunities for pages filled with gorgeous photo series concerning each person/song, accompanying interviews. Wishful thinking....
    I can't wait anymore.
  • er... when's the album out again? Great it's getting positive reviews but not going to help the whole leak 'thingy' is it?

    Is that not a bit crazy, a review over a month before release date? I mean most non Goldfrapp fans will maybe have more chance of picking up the album due to all the hype, but for fans is this not just torture.

    Should start selling Purity Rings for those who want to resist the 'urge' to hear it! :-/

    lmao! That's impossible (for some), us dirty dirty heathens. But yeah mute + Goldrapp is usually cock up, thought things would change now EMI are out of the picture.
  • Maybe it's all a test for the Twilight crowd. ;)
