2-2 Sad But New (7:29) Vocals - Alison Goldfrapp
2-3 Times Fly (Fast) (7:53)
2-4 The Tranquilizer (6:27)
2-5 The Box (28:11) <-- Feels like you are watching a movie!
I think that "The Girl With The Sun In Her Head" really sets the tone for this album: mysterious, warm, playful, diverse. Listening to it just puts a smile on my face while tripping me out.
Obviously everybody remembers "The Box (Part 2)", but I just love the number of versions they did, plus the second disc has a 28min version, which sounds like a mini set, but its one fantastic song.
"Tranquilizer" seems to really define that early EDM sound that I crave. Lots of high pitched bleeps, beeps, and dings to satisfy any techy. The breakbeats with nice soothing tones in the background, together with the beeps really seem to come together and make you want to dance.
I picked this up recently, and I have just been so happy with it.
