    A great collection of the best from Goldfrapp. If you are lover of the band this album will come as a beautiful summary of their work to date. Nothing more needs to be said.

    Goldfrapp are one of those bands that are really pure synth pop but have alternative credibility probably due to the fact that they've had relatively modest commercial success. 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. Expand

    A great combination of favourite and top charting singles by one of the UK's best bands. The only weak point in my opinion is the exclusive of "Twist", "Fly Me Away" and "Alive". I also wish there had been more rarities to be found.

    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.

    The songs reunited on The Singles should be celebrated by anyone fascinated by the UK's long tradition of tuneful eccentrics.

    Rich and radio-friendly pop. [Apr 2012, p.101]
