    Black Cherry has its moments, and those are generally when the songs are more active. The more toned down and more sonically spaced out tracks simply make the album a little bit boring.

    Probably the best album released by Goldfrapp. Mixing a burlesque theme with hard electronic music was a stroke of genius on their part. The visuals accompanying in their music videos are worth checking out as well. Download: Strict Machine, Black Cherry, Crystaline Green, Twist

    This is probably my secret guilty pleasure in music. I love Goldfrapp and I am amazed their first album is not listed here since I think Felt Mountain is their best work. Black Cherry is amazing and is way more dancey but still brilliant like most of what comes from this duo.

    Black Cherry is an album that has many different elements. A big step from debut "Felt Mountain" Black Cherry includes some pop songs including "Twist" "Strict Machine" and "Crystalline Green" but the best track is the title track "BLack Cherry"..It is soft and mellow enough to put you in a very chill mood

    Goldfrapp know how to draw you in and, more importantly, hook you.
  2. A dull compromise of artistic intent and marketability.
  3. A menacingly sweet and sweetly menacing set of electro pop. [June 2003, p.109]
