Stream Goldfrapp's Seventh Tree In Its Entirety

UK electronic-pop duo Goldfrapp's newest release Seventh Tree - which is set to be released in the States tomorrow, February 26th - hasn't been receiving the greatest of reviews as of late. MFR will have its own take on the record posted in the next couple of days. In the meantime, those who want to stream the record in its entirety can, and should, head over to the band's MySpace Page where all of Seventh Tree's 10 tracks are streaming. Listen for yourself, then decide whether or not some critics are being too harsh on the album.

I find it all to predictable and disappointing that the critics are being too harsh in critiquing this record. It reminds a lot of two past albums that were recieved in a similar way. When Beck released Sea Change, and when Radiohead released Kid A the reviews were broad in either loving or hating them. The new Goldfrapp is similar because they take a step away from the sound most people affiliate with them, their electro-beat pop songs. With that said, this record is a motherfucking masterpiece. It may take you a few listens, but it is great, just as Sea Change and Kid A are great.

For whatever reason, mellow records by artists who have created more main-stream pop in the past always get dumped on. But the orchestration, the mixing, the combination of organic sounds and modern production techniques, and the simple but lush melodic and harmonic themes are to be admired.

Do it. Admire it.
