Kim Wilde. Mention her name and people’s eyes light up. The blonde singer with the siren voice is after all one of pop music's most dazzling stars. For years she has held the record as England’s most successful female pop star ever.

5.0 out of 5 stars At last a UK Release 28 Nov 2011
By mark73
Format:MP3 Download
At last a UK release for the recently released Snapshots by Kim Wilde (such a shame its not a CD in the UK aswell as MP3)

I was a bit sceptical when i heard that Kim was to release a covers album but... there are some fantastic songs on here, To France being my favourite (incidentally is the new single and being released in Germany only! SO ANNOYING)

Kooks, a David Bowie cover, also features Kims husband Hal - he sounds very Bowie in places I must admit

Overall buy this release! Its very very good. While you are at it, you can now download Kim's 2010 album Come Out and Play- its outstanding

5.0 out of 5 stars Overall, a Great album... 29 Nov 2011
By Sam
Format:MP3 Download|Verified Purchase
Kim Wilde delivers an album of her favourite songs throughout her lifetime to celebrate her turning 50.

She gives very faithful interpretations of the original songs however the best ones are those that sound "Kim-iffied" - "To France", "Remember Me" and "Wonderful Life".

Kim Wilde has a very unique, some may say slightly nasal but undoubtedly emotional voice and this shows on some of the more personal songs on this album such as "Anyone Who Had A Heart" and "Sleeping Satellite".

Overall, this is a really good album - the only song i am not keen on so much is "It's Alright" which isn't so bad considering the album has 14 tracks on it.

Definately one to download!

4.0 out of 5 stars Parting Shots 13 Sep 2011
Format:Audio CD
Surely releasing a 100% covers album is a bad sign for any artist - does it mean that songwriters don't want you to record their songs anymore so, instead, you re-record everyone else's old tracks...despite saying that, I think this is pretty good collection of tunes.

Of course there is a lack of originality (don't expect an album of covers reminiscent of 'You Keep Me Hangin' On', where Kim made the song her own) as you'll be disappointed. She sticks pretty much too the original scores (she could've been a Sugerbabe on 'About You Now' as her version is so close to the original, and her version of 'Wonderful Life' adds nothing to the song or the classic Black version).

However, her revision of the early 90's East 17 number 'It's Alright' is quite funky (and an unexpected choice of song too) and she was brave to tackle 'Anyone Who Had a Heart', which is a belting ballad more suited to stronger voices than hers (and everyone knows that Dusty Springfield recorded the definitive version in the late 60's anyway) but she gives it her best and there is a great Drifters-esque rift mid-way through, which is a lovely nod to the songs sixties roots.

On the negative side she butchers 'A Little Respect' (I'm quite sure that Erasure fans will be less than pleased with her spin on this classic tune) and sounds flat & expressionless on several of the tracks (gone, it would seem, are the wonderful inflections and note changes heard on past glories such as 'Four Letter Word' and the like) but I think this is possibly down to some weak song choices that don't really suit her voice. As example, the albums stand out track 'To France' is terrific; her cover is fresh and clean, with great vocal over a perfect 80's synth sound.

5.0 out of 5 stars Snapshots - hot, hot, hot! 1 Dec 2011
Format:Audio CD
Due to Great Britain's weird obsession with youth, Kim Wilde's albums are no longer mass released here, but GB is missing out on some of her finest work ever. Her previous two albums, Never Say Never and Come Out And Play, have been chock full of new, exciting and powerful music, with Kim's greatest vocal performances. Maturity has done wonders for Kim and her voice, and now she presents us with a collection of some of her favourite songs, given the Wilde treatment. Kim, like I, certainly has an eclectic musical preference, with samples from such artistes as Sugababes, Mike Oldfield, Cilla Black, East 17 and Tracey Ullman (via Kirsty MacColl). Kim sings these songs with real feeling and expertise. A slight omission is a song from either Bucks Fizz or ABBA, knowing that Kim loves them both, as do European ears, where this album is on release, but this collection is superbly crafted with great backing tracks, sublime vocals and a real feeling that a lot of thought has gone into the album. If you liked Kim Wilde's earlier work, you'll love this. If you never heard Kim Wilde, then try it, it's a superb album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ever Fallen In Love? 25 Oct 2011
By Sam
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
...I have with this album!

To celebrate her 30th year in the music industry and her 50th year Kim releases this album of cover versions of her favourite defining songs throughout her life.

Production is great, her voice sounds so good and it really rocks.

The best tracks - Remember Me, Ever Fallen In Love, To France, Just What I Needed
Not so good - It's Alright, A Little Respect

3.0 out of 5 stars Kim Wilde 2011 is it any good?? 4 Oct 2011
Format:Audio CD
Well the opening track "It's Alright" hardly sets the scene here,this is not a good song & Kim has recorded many B sides that are far superior,actually in my opinion one of her worst songs ever!However then you have "Remember Me" this is her rendition of the Diana Ross song, this is fantastic, so up to date & you believe Kim in her delivery of this, you can just hear her saying it to the guy,the song is very OTT & is amazingly made for 2011 in all of it's camp glory.

If you get the ltd edition this features "Forever Young",this is a masterpiece & she can be very proud of this, it pulls at your heartstrings & it is a modern day work of art.

Other high points are "Ever Fallen In Love" she cuts lose & really rocks here.

I would love to know what Robert Smith of The Cure thinks of her version of "Inbetween Days" I realy haven't made my mind up,but it is fun, but almost karaoke style fun!

I have been a massive fan of Ms Kim of the Beestung lips Wilde from 1981, but this is not her finest moment with the exception of the songs I've mentioned. It will have a friends & family get together singing along, but there are no awards or new fans for this album.

2010 brought the amazing album "Come Out & Play" & that's just what it made us Wilde ones do, it was original & superb, this however is what it says on the tin a covers album & unfortunately average I'm afraid.

Hey ho Ms Wilde is still my guilty pleasure & despite not setting the world alight with this is far more talented than so many overated overcloned wannabees from the stables of a said Mr Cowell.

Thanks for a few good songs Kim, but East 17 were not good when they were popular, why oh why cover "It's Alright"
