Humble Pie Anyone?

We’ve always tried to like Goldfrapp… there’s no denying that ‘Train’ and ‘Strict Machine’ are very good songs BUT we just don’t ‘get it’ or get why everyone else gets massive hard-ons over them! However, ‘Rocket’ (the first single from their new album ‘Head First’) is AMAZING. At first, it might’ve helped that it was played on Radio 2 whilst in the car, when the sun was shining AND when we didn’t know it was Goldfrapp BUT no matter what, the only possible conclusion, is that ‘Rocket’ is a bright, infectuious and glorious piece of sing-a-long 80’s inspired pop! The video is also fun and quite watchable with it’s dance routine and taping of the no longer necessary man to the rocket!
