Felt Mountain is the debut studio album by English electronic music duo Goldfrapp, released on 11 September 2000 by Mute Records. The album takes influence from a variety of music styles such as 1960s pop, cabaret, folk and electronica.

Felt Mountain peaked at number 57 in Goldfrapp's native United Kingdom, and was certified gold by the British Phonographic Industry (BPI) in October 2001. It was generally well received by music critics, and it was described as "simultaneously smarmy and seductive, yet elegant and graceful". In 2001, the album was shortlisted for the Mercury Prize, an annual music prize awarded for the best British or Irish album from the previous year.
