    Most of Goldfrapp fanbase (Me included) think that this duo can do no wrong. Seventh Tree proves they're (we're) wrong. Seventh Tree is a dull and unpalatable record.

    I dunno.....I really liked the last few efforts from Goldfrapp. Played them to death actually. With this new one though, they seem to have committed the greatest sin you can in music. This record is boring. I have listened to it about 10 times after reading that you have to "give it a few listens to truly get it" but I don't get it. To me it's snooze inducing and I generally I dunno.....I really liked the last few efforts from Goldfrapp. Played them to death actually.

To me it's snooze inducing and I generally enjoy softer deliberate music. Let's go back to the fun, exotic and interesting Goldfrapp sound that you cruelly bated us with before effectively putting us to sleep. Expand

    I agree with Kyle G -- this album is boring. Allison's voice ends up sounding like a pillow for most of it. Even the slower Felt Mountain featured some vocal acrobatics. Here, she just plods along.

  1. Goldfrapp and Gregory have made an album as hummably lovely as it is knowingly referencing of a certain tradition of neo-psychedelic English whimsy.
  2. Some more uptempos would have been nice, but Seventh Tree still makes for good post-party chill- out music.
  3. From the first minute till the last, this is enthralling, invigorating stuff, and because of that it's comfortably the duo's best album yet.
