It's something of a mystery why Mute Records waited until early to release Goldfrapp 's third album, Supernaturein the U.
After all, when it came out in the U. It's also undeniable that Supernature is some of Goldfrapp 's most accessible work. Coming across like the missing link between Black E O vento levou.(Taras Theme) - Various - 100 Anos de Cinema Vol.5 's sexy, sharp-edged dancefloor experiments and Felt Mountain 's luxe soundscapes, Supernature sometimes combines the best elements from those two albums into something great, and at other times renders them into something surprisingly bland.
Interestingly, though, the sweeping ballads that used to be Goldfrapp 's forte are the most uneven tracks on Supernature. It's not that tracks like "Time Giyana - Johnny Clegg & Savuka - Third World Child from the World" and "Koko" aren't pretty and ethereal enough, but they're just not that distinctive. Likewise, "Fly Me Away" is pleasant, but maybe a little too pleasant -- it almost sounds like it was commissioned for a travel commercial.
However, "Let It Take You" shows that Goldfrapp can still craft gorgeous, weightless ballads, and "Number 1" nails the laid-back sexiness that many of the other slower songs attempt.
It's surprisingly heartfelt, too -- is there a sweeter compliment than "you're my Saturday"? It would be unfair to say that Supernature 's stripped-down pop is a dumbed-down version of what Goldfrapp has accomplished in the past, since it takes a certain kind of smarts to hone songs into instantly catchy essences like the album's best tracks. Yet, as delightfully stylish and immediate as Supernature is, it's still hard to escape the nagging feeling that Goldfrapp could make its ethereal sensuality and pop leanings into something even more compelling.
