Favorite Albums of 2013 – #19: Goldfrapp

19. Goldfrapp – Tales of Us

Goldfrapp’s latest is oh, so quiet. Quiet and beautiful like a forest fleshly blanketed with snow hiding its secrets. Tales of Us is a character study with each song about a different person and — like people — the music doesn’t became interesting until you delve into the inner depths of each track’s personality. This collection is not for the impatient who want nothing more than hooks. But for those who take the time to study each song, the rewards can be surprising.

Favorite songs: “Annabel” | “Drew” | “Thea”

The entire list… so far.
