5.0 out of 5 stars DARK AND MYSTERIOUS: AN UNLIKELY KYLIE CLASSIC 31 Dec 2003
Format:Audio CD
After hearing some belated hype about the underrated 1998 Kylie album, "Impossible Princess," I took a chance and bought it as an import. Upon first listen, I was blown away by its power! This is the most interesting album I've come across in a while. One wouldn't even recognize that this was the same artist who was behind the infectious sugary "la, la, la's" of the insanely catchy dance-pop single "Can't Get You Out Of My Head" back in 2001. Believe the reviews and critical acclaim: "Impossible Princess" is everything people describe it as, and more! Maybe it's because the general mainstream public was not ready for quite a drastic change in artistic direction that "Impossible Princess" was overlooked. It's pretty unfortunate that "Impossible Princess" (then changed to "Kylie Minogue") bombed upon its release because here is a hidden gem that's filled with remnants of an extremely brave, adventurous, and experimental female pop artist. Sure, it can get self-indulgent and claustrophobic when it comes to taking in such complex music that's not associated with the pint-sized Aussie beauty, but you better believe that every single note and word in this album is packed with genuinely pure emotion. It's not that amazingly ground breaking and innovative, but "Impossible Princess" is complex, intricately structured, and atmospheric enough to give the artist immediate credibility. I find it strange that the same artist that wrote the dark lyrics for this album turned into a dance-pop diva upon abandoning it and its commercial failure. From the first track, "Too Far," you're in for a treat of sonic textures and you're immediately brought inside Kylie's otherwordly realm. "Too Far" is one of the standout tracks in the album, being part rapid drum 'N' bass and part orchestral dramatics. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars Kylie's nist artistic and creative. 30 Dec 2010
Format:Audio CD
After so much success with SAW, it is only natural that Kylie wanted to try something so different. This album is great because it has almost no boundaries, and it's just Kylie at her most personal and experimental.
Every song is co-written by Kylie herself, and although the album was considered a UK flop (even though it charted at No 10) it was a success in Australia spending much of 1998 in the charts peaking at No 4.
Every track is different on this album, and to date Kylie has not done anything as risky or as personal as this.

Too Far is a song solely written by Kylie, bledning trip hop beats with a frantic lyric.
Some Kind Of Bliss is a groovey pop rock track, and is a collaboration with Manic Street Preachers.
Drunk and Limbo are ballsy indie dance tracks which are full of angst and energy.
Dreams is the ballad moment, but not like any ballad you have heard.

Simply, get this Kylie album. It's a project which took 2 years to complete, and is one of Kylie many career turning points.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great album!!!! 12 Mar 2009
Format:Audio CD
I'm in love with this album, it's such a perfect combination of pop, sexy voice and indie rock. the lyrics are perfect for example too far and say hey written by kylie. the sound of songs like drunk and through the years and the lovely ending by the beutiful song DREAMS, in just a few words this album is pure perfection in kylie's career, it's different that other albums but has that special thing that kylie adds to every song she makes!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Kylie's Most Interesting Record 21 Jun 2008
By Alex
Format:Audio CD
1. Too Far. 8/10
2. Cowboy Style. 10/10
3. Some Kind of Bliss. 10/10
4. Did It Again. 10/10
5. Breathe. 10/10
6. Say Hey. 9/10
7. Drunk. 9/10
8. I Don't Need Anyone. 10/10
9. Jump. 9/10
10. Limbo. 10/10
11. Through the Years. 8/10
12. Dreams. 10/10

OVERALL GRADE: 10/10
This has to be Kylie's most misunderstood album, and didn't get the critical and commercial reception that it deserved, as the songwriting and compositions go much further. Exploring for the first time into the electronica-rock-dancepop genre, this shows Kylie as the title, as an Imposible Princess.

5.0 out of 5 stars A much underrated album 21 Mar 2014
By JB
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This was Indie Kylie - the pop Princesses' foray into the world of 'cool' music. Funnily enough, Kylie only really became 'cool' when she went back to her pop roots, but that's another story. Who cares anyway what others judge as cool or not? You make your own mind up.

This is a really, really good album. Stand-out track is 'Did It Again', but there's not one dud on the album. Kylie experiments with a range of style, and some more mature lyrics. She's also taken a hand in writing part of some of the tracks. I really can't see the likes of Cheryl Cole or Jessie J or Katy Perry being confident enough to step outside of their pop-dross bubbles and try something as daring as this. But then Kylie broke away from S/A/W to blaze her own trail - that's why she'll always be on the top of the pile.

If you fancy some music with a bit of a bite, a bit of attitude, then this is the album for you. And me!

3.0 out of 5 stars A bit all over the place 18 Mar 2014
By paul
Format:Audio CD
Kylie’s 6th studio album and 7 in total, which was to be her final on the Deconstruction label, where again Kylie experiments with new sounds such as trip hop and indie rock, which seemed to be a bit too exereme for the record buying public to handle as this became her lowest selling album to date, and didn’t make much of an impact on the charts.

1. Too Far 5/10
A weird way to start the album, beginning in almost spoken words and then bridging into trip hop, a bit too strange for my taste.

2. Cowboy Style 8/10
This is more like it, a funkier sound and different to anything that came before, released only in Australia as the 4th single, but in all a decent track.

3. Some Kind Of Bliss 10/10
Kylie goes indie rock on this track, and again a new direction never heard before, despite being the first single, it didn’t set the charts alight but in my opinion this song is still one of my faves from the album, I find it catchy and quite funky.

4. Did It Again 10/10
Now this is more like it, with Kylie going a bit more rock with trip hop influences and especially loved the guitar twangs to this song, and became the 2nd single and had much more success putting Kylie back in the top 20.

5. Breathe 9/10
Slowing the pace down a bit, is this gorgeous track, that would become the 3rd and final UK single and really takes you to another place, making it very psychedelic.

6. Say Hey 7/10
Another track that seems to take you to another place, a funky dance type number, where Kylie’s vocals shine.

7. Drunk 6/10
A bit to all over the place for me, just couldn’t get into this track at all, I do like the fact that Kylie’s trying something different, but this track is just way too out there.
