Before recording Body Language, Kylie Minogue must have wondered how to follow Fever. That was an album that not only prompted six million people to grab a copy but sparked a national obsession with the diminutive pop diva's posterior. Well, breaking Madonna's record as the female solo artist with the greatest UK chart-topping longevity isn't a bad start. Fifteen years after Kylie first reached the pinnacle of the UK chart with "I Should Be So Lucky", "Slow" took the mini minx to the top for the seventh time. Oozing with the same entrancing blend of seductive electronica, spiralling rhythms and breathy vocals that sent hormones raging with "Can't Get You Out of My Head", "Slow" was cowritten by Minogue and is easily the finest moment on Body Language.

Despite the army of writers, Body Language is a surprisingly cohesive serving of R&B-lite, laced with a sprinkling of Prince-style 1980s disco-fuelled funk, such as "Still Standing", which finds Kylie pronouncing "You know you want it!" amid a bed of grinding bass and squelching synths. There are moments such as "Red Blooded Woman" when the generic-pop production machine all but eradicates any sense of Kylie, but on the whole the formulaic funk and predictable pop styling is outweighed by the soap survivor's inimitable presence. As a result, Body Language is sure to work its magic. --Christopher Barrett

Body Language' represents a return to a more adventurous direction for Kylie without losing that commercial sensibility cemented by her previous record 'Fever.'
Influences here include Urban beats, especially evident in the fantastic 'Secret (Take You Home') and 'Red Blooded Woman,' Electronic Hip POP represented by the truly kooky 'Sweet Music' and Prince-esque funk on 'I Feel For You.'
Kylie even slows the pace with a slice of RnB Electro on 'Chocolate,' the anthemic orchestral 'Loving days' (a MUST for a single)! and the sublime 'Someday' (featuring Green Gartside).
Body Language is an absoulote must have record which is on an entirely different level to her last album.

Well. First, this is not her best album, but, i have to say this, I'm still waiting for her best album!!!. Don't get me wrong!! I'm her fan since ages!!! Have all the albums, all the DVD's, all the mixes.....This is what i think:
The songs are good, i'd say even better than the ones on "Fever" with the obvious exception of CGYOOMH, which as you all know is excellent....But to be fair, "Slow" is an OUTSTANDING track!!!. That techno 80's Atari-sound-like is quite adorable.....
Other goods: Secret (must be a single), Chocolate (must be a single too), Loving days (goody goody).....
Hey people, let's admit Kylie is a pop entertainment number....a long one cause she's in business for 15 years now.....but she's not a genius, she never was one....and she never acted as one. But she's here, she's doing very good, she's a good singer (again she never said she was THE VOICE).
And i would say this product is good, better produced than "Fever", with better lyrics (worst it would not be possible) and more spirit than a bunch of pop acts around. Finally, at least "she is with the music and not against it", like some "rebels" and thank God she's not as "Dirrrty" as some cute girls whose torture-voices and crap-music are like being dead and keep getting sick.
Buy it and give it a chance, you'll enjoy it!!

I have to admit that on first listening I was disappointed with 'Body Language'. I loved the Fever album and have fond memories playing it over and over in the summer of 2001, working away on my computer or prancing around the room getting ready for a night out. 'Light Years' was alright, definitely better than her previous stuff but 'Fever' was simply fab. I was eagerly anticipating 'Body Langauge' but an extension of 'Fever' this wasn't. Instead it conjured up images of cocktail lounges -it sounded like the type of easy listening music that you have in the background of upmarket bistros. But I hadn't given it a fair hearing. Over the past weeks it's grown on me enormously, to the extent that I'm constantly humming 'Red Blooded Woman' and 'Chocolate'. Every track effortlessly flows into the next. I haven't heard such a cohesive album since Madonna's 'Ray of Light'. Though she didn't have a hand in writing any of the tracks bar 'Slow', this album really gets at the essence of Kylie. She's revealed herself and this intimacy with thoughts and feelings really strike a connection with the listener. 'Promises', 'Loving Days', 'Secret' are also brill and contrary to some critics' opinions, 'Still Standing' is great. Yes there is a Prince influence but that's not a bad thing, especially since Kylie herself was a fan in her early days. I've reviewed my original opinion of 'Fever', as an album 'Body Language' is infinitively better - no fillers here. There may not be the equivalent of the stumping anthem of 'Can't get you out of my head' but when Kylie is this interesting, you know you're onto a good thing.

I have adored Kylie for a while now, and love all previous releases. The first time I heard Slow I wasn't sure, however, the track really grew on me and when played loudly it sounds fantastic. It is in by far the best single release since CGUOOMH. The album follows a similar route, there are some instant stand out tracks, and some slow burners which in turn become true favourites. Red Blooded Woman, Secret and Still Standing are strong contenders in my opinion for the second single release from this album. All in all the album is illuminated with electro-pop, 80's influence and a tinge of R'&'B. After Light Years and Fever is was difficult to imagine where Kylie would go next, or how she would be able to better especially Kylie. With Body Language she has accomplished that. Kylie really does do everything with such style. This album will be loved by Kylie fans and will greatly appeal to those not familiar with her music up to date. BUY IT!!!!!

This import edition of Kylie's album Body Language is worth it if you would like to hear the tracks You Make Me Feel and Slow Motion, which are bonus tracks. But the standard edition is fine for me, including the normal 12 tracks and at a cheaper price you are probably better off getting that edition. Includes Slow, Red Blooded Woman and Chocolate.

It's all too natural for singers and other artists to want to stretch their limits, not keep themselves restricted to the same ol' same ol'. Sadly, Kylie Minogue stretches too far in the wrong direction in "Body Language," the lackluster follow-up to dancepop hit "Fever."

It opens strongly on the sensuous "Slow," with its sly beats and slithery vocals. It's not a very dancey song, but it is a strong one. Unfortunately that doesn't carry over to the awkward, angular "Still Standing" or the singsong "Secret (Take You Home)." They almost are good pop, but they never become catchy or half as fun.

Halfway through, there is a revival of sorts with the bouncy "Sweet Music" and sexy, built-up "Red Blooded Woman." A symphonic edge enters with the slow, swirling "Loving Days." Then it's back to the uninspired stuff -- the robotic vocals and video-game beats of "Obsession" and the embarrassingly awkward "I Feel For You," and ends with a freaky remix of "You Make Me Feel."

Obviously after "Fever," expectations were high -- okay, while the album was just dancepop, it was fun, bright and unabashedly sexy. But Minogue strays too far in the wrong direction with "Body Language," leaving behind a lot of the musical influences of her previous release. That turns out to be a major mistake.

The music is a lot slower, and often a lot less disjointed -- the beats are repetitive except in "Red Blooded Woman," and too often they end up sounding like samples lifted from a video game. There's also an awkward blend of 80s synth and 21st-century R&B and hip-hop vibes. It doesn't mesh, and it doesn't work.

Minogue's voice is a pretty little wisp. She doesn't have great vocals, but she does know how to tailor the songs to fit her like a glove.
