    Directional swerves are admirable, but make an uneven set, especially as the material from their first three albums has more palpable sparkle than the rest.

    What this collection leaves you wanting--and what Goldfrapp do most wonderfully--is weirdness. [Mar 2012, p.116]

While technically not a best of album, this compilation really gathers their highest quality tracks. In fairness to them, they have a distinctive style and have put out the music they wanted to rather than putting out stuff that they thought would sell. There are quite a few tracks on here that you'll know but never knew were Goldfrapp. "Ooh la la", "Black Cherry" and "Yellow Halo" are my favourites on this. Full Review »
