"Though her collaborations with Tricky, Orbital, and Add N To X focused on the sheer beauty and power of her singing, on her debut album Felt Mountain Allison Goldfrapp also explores more straightforward styles. Together with composer/multi-instrumentalist Will Gregory, Goldfrapp wraps her unearthly voice around songs that borrow from '60s pop, cabaret, folk, and electronica without sounding derivative or unfocused. From the sci-fi/spy film hybrids "Human" and "Lovely Head" to the title track's icy purity, the duo strikes a wide variety of poses, giving Felt Mountain a stylized, theatrical feel that never veers into campiness. Though longtime fans of Goldfrapp's voice may wish for more the exuberant, intoxicating side of her sound, lovelorn ballads like "Pilots," "Deer Stop," and "Horse's Tears" prove that she is equally able at carrying -- and writing -- more traditional tunes. A strange and beautiful mix of the romantic, eerie, and world-weary, Felt Mountain is one of 2000's most impressive debuts." - Heather Phares, All Music


"The lights dim, you have popcorn in your hand and an over-priced cup of warm Coke at your feet. Get comfortable now, because once this cinematic album begins, you'll be sitting less easily. You are about to enter the world of Goldfrapp, and it's a disturbing one, full of troubled words and unexpected images.


Alison Goldfrapp, she of the sensual vocals and love of high drama, has teamed up with film composer Will Gregory to produce a decadent debut that shimmers with a film of glossy seediness. Inspired by classical music and the French fumblings of Serge Gainsbourg, with a veneer of cool picked up via collaborations with Tricky, among others, Felt Mountain is a journey into stylised darkness and corruption. Lovely Head may start out as an ode to Roger Whittaker's whistling technique, but soon turns Technicolor, the human touch replicated by a scary electronic frequency that rises and falls, both carrying the melody and tormenting it. Sounding like the Ipcress File theme set to a reworking of The Haunting - complete with gasps - it's a successful meeting of torch song and soundtrack." - The Guardian
