5.0 out of 5 stars the finer feelings... 6 Nov 2012
By rob rob
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
of all the things said about kylie in her 25 year music career, one thing has always been agreed upon - shes a bonafide pop icon. one of the things people seem to dispute is her voice. can she really sing?

the simple answer is yes. kylies voice is very unique and instantly recognisable, but some people will be 'shocked' at the strength, and emotion this woman pours out into these 16 tracks. if you didnt know any of these songs you would like this album and at no point doubt this womans voice. however knowing the origins of these songs and hearing them in this new guise is staggering.

out go the dance beats, and layered vocals... and in come the strings, guitars and pianos. there are no smoke and mirrors on this album. the stunning bond-esque drama of cant get you out of my head, and finer feelings sweep you away in an epic landscape of violins. the old locomotion cover which was the naffest form of pop, is turned into motown-esque girl group pastiche. confide in me is as powerful as ever and seems to work with any rework thats ever been thrown at it, and is definately a highlight.

the two standout tracks though are the kiddies disco favourites from back in the day (1989 infact) hand on your heart is a stripped down guitar track, which follows closely to the jose gonzalez version a few years back.. and is a revelation. the other is never too late. a simple piano-vocal track, which oozes kylies vunerable heartfelt lyric and is a beautiful way to close this acoustic/orchestral masterpiece. after 25 years in the business, kylie has nothing to prove... but if there was just the tiniest speck of doubt, it will have long since dissipated by the close of the album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great album 29 Oct 2012
Format:MP3 Download
Ever since I saw Kylie do a session for BBC Radio at the Camden Roundhouse, I have thought how great it would be to have those songs on an album and here it is. The album is excellent and it brings a new take on Kylie's back catalogue. Happy 25 years in the business Kylie and thanks for another excellent album! A true star!

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing reworking of these tracks. 14 Nov 2012
By Pod
Format:MP3 Download|Verified Purchase
Having been forced to watch Neighbours and see Kylie work her way through the soaps and shows I was never really a big fan of her or her music though I do admint to enjoying several of videos, hey I'm a bloke and only human !

I heard a sample of this albumn purely by accident and was amazed so much I bought it rather than copy it.

Totally changed my opinion of Kylie.

Buy it !!

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply outstanding 3 Nov 2012
By Paul
Format:Audio CD
Every once and a while you hear an album which really takes your breath away. From the outset it sends shivers down your spine and you cant wait to see if it will last throughout the album. This album did it for me. I found myself wondering how did the original sound. It doesn't matter, these songs may have the same words but they stand as great songs in their own right. Fabulous production.
SEVERAL WEEKS LATER...............
Love it so much its almost worn out!
It feels like Andrew Lloyd Webber must of had a hand in some of these songs now.........I thinks there's a musical in there somewhere. You heard it here first!!
Thank you Kylie

5.0 out of 5 stars Better The Devil You Know. 29 Oct 2012
By Flickering Ember TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
It is a brave move to try and rework such popular classics...ones which shaped and defined a pop career which has now spanned a quarter of a century. Nonetheless, transforming songs to which we all danced twenty years ago into moving ballads...familiar songs in new keys, styles and genres has been a labour of love which has definitely paid off.

Every song has been faithfully reworked, with some beautiful orchestral scores added, and even different recording techniques, including using microphones more appropriate to these genres of vocal than to pop songs. Then again, you would expect nothing less from Abbey Road Studios.

This album proves Kylie is an ever evolving, talented performing artist who is just as credible and valid as ever, and shows she is definitely not just a one trick pony. It may not be a total departure from pop music that she is seeking, but no doubt, this album is definitely able to help secure a seamless transition to a more mature sound and style.

There is also a totally new track included; Flower, which shows the likes of Adele how it's really done!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow Kylie just wow...... 5 Nov 2012
Format:Audio CD
Well this album is up there as one of my favourites and I haven't stopped playing it all week. This girl knows how to use her voice and to transform the songs the way they have is musical genius and a perfect way to celebrate 25 years in music. Was it really that long ago when Kylie was doing the locomotion and singing about wanting to be lucky in love. The emotion behind the new versions of lucky and never too late are jaw dropping and transform the as once happy pop song into gorgeous love letter torch songs. We even have a new single Flower which is also beautiful and should do very well. I think you may have won over an entire new fan base Miss Minogue - well done!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars GORGEOUS NEW ARRANGEMENTS 2 Nov 2012
Format:Audio CD
What a great idea to celebrate Kylie's 25 year career in music. Whoever came up with this idea - well done. This album works so well. Gone are the dance beats and in come the strings, piano, acoustic and light drums. Just add Kylie's sublime vocals and you have a classic 'unplugged' style album recorded in the best studio in the world.

I love every song which has been totally reworked and slowed down and you can now appreciate more than ever the wonderful melodies surrounded in some of the most soothing lounge music I have heard in a while. Reworked classics of ttracks like 'I should be lucky' need to be listended to closely to see how the recording has completely rearranged a well worn classic.

A fine collection of classics that are a joy to listen to.

Highly recommended.

I thought this would be an interesting alternative to normal Kylie but actually it was pretty bland and I just can't get into it
