If Rip Van Winkle had nodded off a few decades ago and was woken by the sound of this album he'd be forgiven for thinking nothing much had changed: on this, the fifth album by Alison Goldfrapp and Will Gregory, you've got a checklist of electro-pop and Euro-disco which includes Abba, Laura Branigan, Giorgio Moroder, bits of ELO, Eighties soundtracks . . .
But they seemed a whole lot more unadulterated, tongue-in-chic fun than this often clinical sounding pastiche. Maybe they are pitching for the soundtrack of that remake of The Goonies which is whispered?
