Silver Eye, Goldfrapp’s seventh album, is dance music which evokes a pagan ritual rather than a club soundtrack. Cold, metallic electronics with a hot current of blood running through them. A 21st century moon dance. It weaves together the two strands of Goldfrapp’s music like never before. If 2013’s Tales of Us, a set of noirish folk fables, roamed the same pastoral landscape as Felt Mountain and Seventh Tree, then Silver Eye (a reference to the moon) belongs to the pulsing, electronic lineage of Black Cherry and Supernature only deeper and darker. Silver Eye will be released March 31, 2017.

Silver Eye is a nice combination of their past styles. There are uptempo electro tracks and slower songs. It manages to sound fresh and new. My favorite songs are Systemagic, Anymore, Everything is Never Enough, Tigerman, Moon in Your Mouth and Ocean. The rest are growing on me. Alison said Become the One was inspired by a story of a transgender girl (MTF) who said they were becoming who they felt they were meant to be, and Alison thought that could be applied to anyone going through a change.
I'd call this their return to form, not Tales. Silver Eye was inspired by the moon. Alison said she looks at the moon often and finds it comforting that it's always there.
