Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

The original title of this album was to be The Impossible Princess, before the death of Princess Diana necessitated a change of plan. The most experimental Kylie album to date features collaborations with the Manic Street Preachers (on the Motown-esque "Some Kind of Bliss" and the loungecore "I Don't Need Anyone"), as well as Dave Ball of the Grid (and Soft Cell), Rob Dougan of Clubbed To Death and, once again, Brothers In Rhythm. The album flits effortlessly between various genres: from Indian-mantra style on the opening "Too Far", to a weird combination of Irish and eastern influence on "Cowboy Style", to trip-hop on "Jump;" it also finds Kylie doing the indie-chick thing on the Manics tracks, snarling Republica-like on "Limbo", and expanding her vocal range with Bjork influenced vocals, particularly on "Say Hey." This is the first time we hear Kylie get angry, sneer and, in fact, seem anything other than sorted, which is kind of odd--but fans of the Jewel/Alanis school of soul-baring female singer-songwriters may be surprised by how honest the whole thing sounds. --Ronita Dutta

5.0 out of 5 stars Kylie's Underrated Classic 15 Jan 2002
Format:Audio CD
Having hummed 'Some Kind of Bliss' in my head for over a week and having checked up on the Amazon reviews, i stumped up my hard earned cash for this album. Regrets? Not at all. This is a truly excellent album, which improves with each play.
I sense that Kylie is a little embarrassed by her'indie-kylie' phase, of which this album is the best example and the press certainly won't let her forget that they don't think that she pulled it off. Well, Kylie has nothing to be ashamed of with 'Impossible Princess' (the deleted album title), for it is every bit as good as Madonna's 'Ray of Light', with which it shares much in musical style and production values. Lest we forget, this album pre-dates 'Ray of Light' and deserves, in retrospect, similar critical acclaim for the comparable quantum leap in Kylie's musical development that it represents.
Very often with artists who rely on session musicians to provide them with backings for their vocals, the instrumentation is anonymous and forgettable. Perhaps the nicest surprise with this album is that the instrumentation is as important to the album as Kylie's vocals. This album sounds like a fully functioning band, with Kylie's vocals blending seamlessly.
There are no weak tracks among the dozen, though some impress more than others. After the edgy 'Too Far', 'Cowboy Style' bounces along brightly before the trio of catchy singles, commencing with the Manic's penned 'Some Kind of Bliss', 'Did It Again'(which is better than I remembered) and the simply beautiful and sultry 'Breathe', Kylie's most underrated single.

5.0 out of 5 stars Some Kind Of Music Bliss! 20 Mar 2002
Format:Audio CD
Fed up with Fever? For me this has to be Kylie`s best album. When it was released it was totally overlooked. Kylie either writes or co-writes ALL tracks on this album. The problem was because the first single off the album, the brilliant "Some Kind Of Bliss" only made #23 on the charts,and is much stronger than "Cant Get You Out Of My Head". The second single "Did It Again" faired a bit better(#14). One of the tracks that should have been a single is the fantastic "Cowboy Style" which is my favourite Kylie track ever. You can feel the sensual vocals on tracks like the third single "Breathe" also on "Jump" and "Through The Years" come pounding out of the speakers. Kylie bears her soul on this album. If you only like the popkylie phase this album will come as a bit of a shock, but after a few listens it hits you like a steam train! This album should be re-released. Any proper Kylie fan shouldn`t be without it. Miss it at your peril!

4.0 out of 5 stars Overlooked and Underrated. 18 Feb 2002
Format:Audio CD
What a strange feeling it is to revisit this album. When this was about to be released we were told to forget popKylie: she wouldn't be back. Goodbye Kylie the Pop puppet. Hello Kylie the singer-songwriter with issues-aplenty. Of course for reasons too boring to mention the album failed to deliver. Which is quite remarkable seeing the quality of some of the songs here.
What is truly exhilarating about this album is when Kylie really lets go, years of 'verse-chorus-verse-chorus to fade' frustration manifests itself in some quite brilliant lyrics. Even if the musical side is somewhat a let down at times.
The main weakness of the album is that there is far too much genre hopping. It's understandable that Kylie wanted to make a record that would sit happily next to her Manics, Portishead, Bjork and Alanis CD's. But to try and cram all those styles onto one album was a mistake. Trying to be everything to everyone only leaves you being nothing to anyone.
So as a collection it doesn't really hang together but taken singularly, the majority are amongst the best songs Kylie has ever recorded
Undoubted highlight is 'Cowboy Style' a magnificent concoction of styles that would have made a brilliant first single. We can only dream of what the video may have looked like. But it's not alone. The Manics produced 'Some Kind..' and 'I Don't Need Anyone' are two of the best pop songs she's ever made. Breathe is stunning in it's simplicity and Limbo, rumoured to be the song Kylie wanted released first, is an emotional adrenalin rush that gets better with age.
But for all these moments the album gets carried away with it's overtly cred credentials. Say Hey is nothing more than a Bjork-lite bad idea...Drunk is, quite fittingly, a mess.

5.0 out of 5 stars Give this album some much over-due credit!! 19 Feb 2014
By JB
Format:Audio CD
This is an excellent album, even though it didn't do fantastically well on the British chart at the time of release. It wasn't helped by being put back from its original release date, which meant that when it finally arrived, it kind of slipped out unnoticed - which is a complete shame.

This was Indie Kylie, her most complete departure from the world of pop, in which she'd sat so comfortably for so long. This was Cool Kylie, but not everybody appreciated it at the time.

The stand-out track on the album is Did It Again, which got to no 14 on the chart but, then, some of the best songs aren't chart-toppers. It's a rollicking guitar-led classic, with Kylie rasping out her vocals to a background symphony which includes what sounds like a sitar, among other things.

Some Kind Of Bliss is great, but not a Manics classic. It sits a little awkwardly within the album, but the album does benefit from its inclusion. Other stand-out tracks are Cowboy Style and Breathe. Each track on the album has its own individual style and emotion.

This album will appeal even to people who aren't usual Kylie fans. I can see why she includes Did It Again on her Greatest Hits packages - its one of the best things she's ever done.

The late 1990's proved a difficult time for Kylie. Impossible Princess proves Kylie's talents. Every track is written by Kylie and is most personal album to date. Read more
