Ok I'm all for artist doing a change in direction, but sometimes those changes don't work.
Case in point:
The new Goldfrapp single, A&E. While it's not completely a "new" direction, as it has a lot in common with her earlier work, I think it lacks any sort of interesting quality. It's pretty, nice, sort of melodic, but then again so is Carrie Underwood. I am already missing the sleezy, sexy, sharp electronic bite of Supernature and Black Cherry.
Hopefully, the A&E single is not representative of the entire new record. Color me unimpressed at this point. But being the fan I am - I'm sure I'll give it many more chances, and still end up buying it.
You can hear it on her myspace page by the way.
