This is simply the best music concert DVD I have ever bought. First off, there are two DVDs so you can hear the growth of Goldfrapp from Utopia to Black Cherry. Secondly, Ms Goldfrapp has an incredible voice and stage persona. When I was listening to the Goldfrapp CDs I was not entirely sure if it has her singing all of the high notes due to the electronic nature of their work. Well, its her alright. When she belts out the operatic opening of the song Utopia I was amazed. Goldfrapp tends to sing in the middle register, but you get to see her following traditional operatic vocals for the beautiful high notes. Also, I would not have guessed that she is so incredible on stage (especially on the Black Cherry tour).

This purchase was filled with pleasent surprises and combine that with the fact of getting 2 DVDs and this is a must buy.

Wonderful Electric is a fantastic DVD, of which many of my friends and I have enjoyed. This DVD includes two disks, of two sold out concerts and two documentaries. On Disk one Alison sings songs from both Black Cherry and Felt Mountain. It consists of a sold out concert at Somerset House, and a Documentary on Goldfrapp: 'Twisted Summer'.

Disk two is all about Felt Mountain, including a never-released-on-album track: Little Death, (I personally liked this one very much) It also has a very...strange documentary on Goldfrapp's, Felt Mountain album: 'A Trip To Felt Mountain' (I especially enjoyed this one...it was rather amusing...but that's just me).

This DVD is the one to adore! I hope that you will buy it and enjoy it as much as I and so many others have!

I saw Goldfrapp play live twice in 2004. She was an amazing singer. This DVD documents the live show over the past five years. I saw the Black Cherry tour so it was great to contrast and compare that experience to the earlier tours. This DVD shows some of the videos, and they could have included some of the videos, but maybe that's for another day. I look forward to the next Goldfrapp album.

Why get 1 concert if you can get 2? This AMAZING release will allow you to witness 2 performances by Goldfrapp from their first 2 tours: Felt Mountain Tour and Black Cherry Tour. Alison's vocals are superb, flawless, magical, etc throughout the entire performances. Plus, you get 2 documentaries ! What else could you possibly ask for? The concerts are short (a little over 60) but tight. They will keep you silent watching the action, just like the audience, not daring to speak and interrupt Alison's perfect singing.

This is a must for any Goldfrapp fan. And for everyone else too.

I am a fan of Goldfrapp, no doubt. I bought this DVD expecting to see a visual version of the music and not much more, instead I was treated to a fantastic pair of performances on what is now one of my all time favorite music DVDs.

The two performances are quite different. The first performance was recorded after Felt Mountain came out and is a fairly straight forward performance of the material and very enjoyable. The second performance was recorded after Black Cherry, and has material from the first two albums, this is where Alison's live performances really started to come out and truly amaze.

I did not think it would really be possible to have a show based on Felt Mountain and Black Cherry - they are so different, but the result was fantastic. When I looked at the play list I thought Black Cherry was a poor choice for the last song, but they turned it into a real show-stopper...this version will really tear your heart out. The live version also contains a great version of Slippage which includes her famous (infamous?) Theramin work.

The short of it is: If you like Goldfrapp you should own this. Period.

I was late buying this fabulous DVD-set, but as they say, "better late than never." I am sooo very glad that I bought this! It's filled with all of their best work, and it's just, well?, extremely entertaining!

I just saw their L.A. show, March 11, 2006, @ the Wiltern Theatre, and that alone has made me a fan for life now! I just hope they release just as good of a DVD for "Supernature", as they did for "Wonderful Electric".

Goldfrapp is a hidden diamond, get this DVD asap! You will thank yourself later! :]

ENJOY!
