EDITORS’ NOTES

Goldfrapp have tended to zig-zag between dynamic electronica and sparser, folkier sounds with every release, but their seventh album successfully absorbs both styles. “Systemagic,” a pounding throwback to 2005’s Supernature, and the metronomic disco of “Everything Is Never Enough” plug the duo back into the mains. However, Silver Eye’s central passage of sedate, spare electro is warmed by soul and intimacy typical of their more pastoral moments, not least on the pleading “Beast That Never Was.”
