Beautiful - there's no other superlative to describe it.

This is Goldfrapp's first album, and what a truly stunning album this is too, easily her finest work to date.
OK, so not every track is brilliant, but the price is more than worth it purely alone for the tracks 'Lovely Head', 'Utopia', 'Horse Tears', and 'Pilots', the latter two in particular are simply blissful. The very sound of this album placed me into an imaginary setting - laying down on a perfectly clear and sunny day gazing at a stunning snow-capped mountainous landscape.
I was absolutely gutted when Goldfrapp abandoned such a beautiful sound in the making of her 2nd and 3rd albums, seemingly aiming for a more commercial sound - that was bad Goldrapp! Naughty girl! However, I've heard that her 4th album 'Seventh Tree' is a return to the sound of that made this LP 'Felt Mountain' so wonderful, so I look forward to purchasing that with the enthusiasm of a child on Christmas morning. I'm so glad that she has decided to please her real fans.

............which sounds like a 60's film soundtrack. I like to imagine South of France, a convertible, man behind the wheel and woman with a scarf driving the Corniche!
This my favourite album from Alison Goldfrapp, haunting and poignant.
Occasionally I think she lapses into bathos - but I forgive her since this is a rookie album and she's allowed to make mistakes.
A real joy.
