    and the $$$ i WOULD pay for that felt mountain LITTLE BOOK





    I felt the same way about that extremely rare little piece of art.

    Set me back $150 CDN, but I have no regrets. Mint condition, and it's just gorgeous.

  • Stevil, put the Everclear away. Or at least mix it with something.
    If I were dead, could I do this?

  • Thanks to the Deer who PM'd me.  I'm regretting listening to the clips now, though.  I really hope I'm getting the wrong impression and that you really have to hear the full songs to "get" it, but they sound so... uninspired here.  Even Alison's sleepy vocals seem disengaged.  And, frequently, it sounds derivative of their earlier work, but without the hooks.  Like well produced demos; sketches of songs yet to be fleshed out.  I hope I'm really wrong.  I recall - going back to the Black Cherry years - hearing their album previews and being instantly hooked, instantly intrigued.  Here, I had to fight the urge to skip ahead on every other 1 minute track.  

    And this is coming from a lifelong fan who's been with them since their first US tour in 2000 and who loves "pastoral" Goldfrapp as much as he loves glam-disco-stomp Goldfrapp.  Ugh.  
  • Disengaged?

    OCEAN @ :20 seconds in is the most vulnerable vocal moment i've ever heard from Alison Goldfrapp since i first discovered her and Will in 2000 on KCRW

    you have got to be kidding me..............................

  • Ocean @ :20 seconds is the most vulnerable vocal moment you've heard from Alison Goldfrapp?  Um...

    Black Cherry, Yellow Halo, A&E, Head First and Clay say 'hi'.  
    :-\"


    (Anyway, I hope I'm dead wrong about this.  I'll gladly eat my hat on this one, but, man, was this a disappointing preview for me)
  • no wonder she shies away from fans
    toxic......

  • I'm not sure why you need to take umbrage with someone expressing a different opinion.  I've loved every single album they've released from Felt Mountain to TOU -- yes, even the sometimes maligned Head First.  These previews have left me cold, but I'll be the first one to celebrate if my first impressions turn out to be way off.  I literally hope I'm wrong and that I'll end up loving the album.  
  • it's not about me 
    it's about the artists
    and there are several involved with Silver Eye 

    and that's that last i will interact with you
    like i said...i sense toxin

    In my experience it's a good sign if it doesn't sound that great on a first
    listen. My favourite album ever is 7T but I remember how disappointed I was that didn't sound
    good at first, and took me about 10 spins to get into most of it.
