Goldfrapp's HEAD FIRST mines a new vein of pop: the 80s! And right from "Rocket," the album revels in its shiny synths with plenty of that retro feel: "Alive" sounds like the track Olivia Newton-John never got to record. "Dreaming" and "Hunt" could be the soundtrack for 'Silk Stalkings,' but the title track goes back to perkiness. Alas, overall, it feels as if something is missing on the album, and that's the sense of exploration that Goldfrapp does so well. This album doesn't too many surprises, and it's a bit of a shame. The muttered vocals of "Shiny and Warm" move in the right direction but it's not until "Voicething" that we get to see Goldfrapp playing with their sound -- and succeeding. Let's hope they plunge head first in yet another direction.
