  1. This is so good it makes us want to do one of those superlative deploying pull quote things that journalists often stick at the end of their reviews: this fantastic piece of work is already a strong contender for album of the year.
  2. As accomplished as Black Cherry was, Supernature completes the suspected evolution from the quasi-avant-garde stylings of old to intelligent, sophisticated pop music.
  3. Supernature is their most radio-friendly work yet.
  4. In its sound and influences, this picks up where Black Cherry left off, but whereas that album smacked of corroded innocence, Supernature fizzes like spacedust on your tongue.
  5. A more ambitious, punchier take on that electro-pop retro fetishizing at which Brits excel. [Mar 2006, p.138]

    Black Cherry this ain't, then. As a companion piece to its genius predecessor, though, Supernature iis planty to be going on with. [Sep 2005, p.108]

    The beats are so simplistic that their minimalist repetition occasionally teeters over into redundancy.

    Supernature is absolutely fantastic. Anyone who claims that Goldfrapp were trying to be commercial just for the sake of selling CDs Supernature is absolutely fantastic. Anyone who claims that Goldfrapp were trying to be commercial just for the sake of selling CDs doesn't realize that people can enjoy (and enjoy creating) more than just one or two styles of music. :P Expand

    From the pulsating "Ride A White Horse" to the ambient "Time Out From The World" Goldfrapp has created their finest work to date which From the pulsating "Ride A White Horse" to the ambient "Time Out From The World" Goldfrapp has created their finest work to date which conquers glam rock, disco, electro, pop and polka along the way.

    Let Alison seduce you. Let Will blow your mind. What an album!

    Forget comparing it to the other Goldfrapp records (do you really want more of the same anyway?). Compare it to other artists in the genre... Forget comparing it to the other Goldfrapp records (do you really want more of the same anyway?). Compare it to other artists in the genre... It's gotta be the best thing out there right now. There'd be no need to feel guilty about liking pop music if it was all this good. Expand

    Every bit was good as Black Cherry. A logical progression. This album is well executed. An instant classic.
