Goldfrapp, Headfirst (2010)
Early 1980s naff-electro-disco style Goldfrapp, this; some OK-songs (I liked the lyric-less, mm-oo-aa 'Voiceless') but by bulk much more average-to-poor than good. People are saying it's Goldfrapp-does-Giorgio-Moroder, which would be cool; but it struck me more as Goldfrapp-does-soprano-Billy-Joel, which is frankly not cool. I'm still enjoying listening to it, mind. That's because, deep down, and despite my being very happily married, I'd really quite like to have sex with Goldfrapp. It's hard to resist her singing things like 'oh-oh-oh I've got a rocket, oh-oh-oh you're going on it' in her gorgeous breathy voice, straight into my ear. Yes, I've heard that she's insane. But you see, I rather like that in a woman.
