This single is another great addition to any Goldfrapp collection. Like the other US releases of their singles, it combines what was on some of the imports and adds video tracks. Here's how I'd review each track:

1.Black Cherry (Single Mix):An excellent update of the song. This version adds a stronger backing bassline and beats and speeds it up and edits it a bit for single length, making a great track that rivals the longer album version.

2.Gone To Earth:A very dreamy, delicate b-side that almost makes you feel lost and free. It is very atmospheric, like some of their other b-sides, and lacks a real lyrical structure, so it remains just a good b-side.

3.Forever (Mountaineers Remix):This is another great Goldfrapp remix, bringing so much life into the slow song. It adds so many beats and so much dimension, changing it into a midtempo and almost radio-friendly pop song.

4.Black Cherry (M83 Remix):By far the best mix on the CD. This mix just adds so many new levels to the already layered song. It builds slowly and rises quickly to a grand climax that alone makes the single worth the purchase price. If you like this mix, definitely check out M83's CD 'Dead Cities, Red Seas, and Lost Ghosts'. It is amazing!

5.Black Cherry (Lawrence Remix):A mediocre mix, but not a bad one. It is a bit too slow even for Black Cherry and gets a bid repetitive and draggy towards the end. It is very quiet and pales in comparison to the superior M83 mix, but is an exclusive track since it is only found on the import DVD single.

Enhanced videos:

6.Black Cherry (Live In London):A live version of the song that does not have that great quality of footage. It is a nice extra, but nothing memorable.

Goldfrapp continues her takeover of the electronic world. The title track from her album BLACK CHERRY gets a remix treatment here. Also included is "Gone to Earth," a quiet and spacious track that seems to be the bridge between her first and second albums. A cool and slightly eerie track, it blends the melancholia of FELT MOUNTAIN (via harpsichord and toy piano) with the electronic bass of BLACK CHERRY. The Mountaineers start out "Forever" by stripping it down to a stark and robotic dirge, before opening up into an electro swirl. M83 put "Black Cherry" through the same electro blender, resulting in a dense and thrumming block of ice. When Lawrence gets his hands on "Black Cherry," however, it becomes spacy and ambient. Though these tracks aren't going to take over dancefloors the way "Strict Machine" and "Twist" did, they showcase Goldfrapp's love of pop music experimentalism.
