Product Description

KYLIE MINOGUE X (2007 UK 13-track enhanced CD album - Kylies 10th studio album on which she collaborates with Bloodshy & Avant Guy Chambers Cathy Dennis Richard Stannard & Calvin Harris includes the singles 2 Hearts & Wow plus a CD-Rom Section containing access to the exclusive recording Rippin Up The Disco complete with a 12-page picture booklet)

Amazon.co.uk

Traditionally, Kylie Minogue has been at her best attempting pure pop, not chasing credibility, but X--her tenth studio album, and the first since 2003’s Body Language--somehow pulls off the trick of being both. With production credits split between old hands like Richard Stannard and Guy Chambers and new faces like Calvin Harris, the Freemasons and Bloodshy & Avant, the Swedish team behind Britney’s "Toxic", X does a neat job of matching big hooks with forward-thinking production tricks. The poptimistic Kylie fan will head straight for "2 Hearts", a sassy falling-for-you number with a glammy beat and a chorus poised to fill a thousand Karaoke rooms, and "Wow"--a thumping disco number with a lot of love to give. Scattered alongside these, however, are some slightly more adventurous productions that demonstrate that despite a few years off the stage, Kylie is well up to speed with 21st Century pop: the excellent "Speakerphone" begins with the sound of a strummed harp before diffusing into a shimmering, Scandinvian-tinged electro-pop number reminiscent of Robyn or The Knife, all snapping, sassy beats and vocodered vocal; meanwhile, the ghetto-pop bounce of "Nu-di-ty" proves raunch is still by no means beyond her. A very welcome return. , --Louis Pattison

I'll start by talking about the great DVD you get with this special edition version of the album. It's got the video for 2 Hearts and a trailer for White Diamond but most importantly, it's got Kylie going through the album track by track, talking about her thoughts on the songs. She looks so cute as she gives us a run down on what was going through her head at the time and all the details of the recording process - it's a fascinating insight for Kylie fans and i could watch it over and over again. Plus, how awesome is the cover of this album, even better than the original one. I love the black and the sparkly red bits!

I've listened to X a fair few times now and i have fallen completely in love with it. More consistent than Fever and Body Language it succeeds in effortlessly blending Kylie's various sounds into one single masterpiece. It's got the dark, stylish electro of Body Language mixed with the light, superbly catchy dance-pop of Fever and touches of Kylie's more experimental, personal side that shone through in her stand-out album, Impossible Princess - in fact, if i was to compare X to any other Kylie album it'd be that one.

Kylie as a person remains just as cute and charming as always - her voice once again on top form with this album. The tracks are sensual, fun and above all just quite simply amazing. And the album cover! It's totally Wow!

The album kicks off with glam-tastic 2 Hearts. It's maybe not were some were expecting but i personally love it. Along with In My Arms and Wow, this is very much Kylie doing what she does best in coming up with great pop songs.

It's hard to believe it's been over 4 years now since Kylie's last studio release `Body Language' so the release of a new album is welcomed with open arms.
Having been diagnosed with breast cancer and having gone through the whole ordeal and recovery process some critics thought this to be the perfect time for Kylie to release a personal intimate album of self discovery, something with a little depth, although for me that's just not what Kylie's about and you won't find that on this CD. Nope, this album is Kylie doing what she does best, pure energetic fun filled pop, and with a much mature sound than `Fever' this album certainly delivers.
From tracks like the bass thumping 'Like A Drug' which will go down a storm in the clubs, to 'All I See' which wouldn't sound out of place on a Britney album and the Sexyback sounding 'Nu-di-ty' there is something for everyone.
The lead single '2 Hearts' has had mixed reviews, and it's performance on the UK charts hasn't been brilliant probably due to it taking some time to grow, but is by no means a reflection on the rest of the album which will have you on your feet from the first listen.
The collaborations don't get much better than they do on 'X' with people like Calvin Harris (Heart Beat Rock) and Freemasons (The One) it really is up there with the top productions.
So forget Kylie's love life, her battle with cancer and all the negative vibes floating around because one thing Kylie can do for sure is make the darkest of times seem a little brighter, yes Smiley Kylie is back with her best album to date, doing what we all know and love, Kylie we salute you!

Just listened to this whole album and have to say its absolutely excellent! - Lots of personal touches, some kookiness and pure pop indulgence all with a fresh 2007 size 3 Kylie footprint.

I wasnt entirely sure when I first heard '2Hearts', but yeah it fits right in here... although there are SO many hit singles on here - namely 'The One' (soaring pop a little bit like Cher's 'Believe' if you ask me!), The best track is the sugar coated 'Wow' (Kylie in pigtails and glitter gives you a good idea!). 'Like A Drug' also really stands out, very electro with a killer hook.

Other standouts are the slightly left of the middle 'Speakerphone', 'Heart Beat Rock' and 'Nu-di-ty' , all really catchy but cant put my finger on just why hehe! - Also have to mention the excellent 'No More Rain' - a retropect look on Kylie's recovery over the past 2 years it would seem...

Altogether definitely the album of 2007.. grab a bottle of wine, stick it on, snog your mates, and smile...

I have heard this album several times now. I was interested to see what it would be like after such a gap. It's been a long time since Kylie released a truly great record. 'I Believe In You' might have a been a classic Kylie single, but the 'Body Language' album was in my opinion a disappointment overall - despite some great moments like 'Slow', 'Still Standing' and 'Sweet Music'.

I've liked Kylie since the beginning. I've always wanted her to do well, create classic records. I'll admit being nervous about 'X'. '2 Hearts' does not sound like anything else on this album. It seems to have caused a spilt with other fans. I think it makes more sense when it's heard here on the album.

What I think about 'X' is this. I think it's by far the best 'album' Kylie has made. There are loads of songs on it which could make it as singles. Personally, the dark electro 'Like A Drug', the Calvin Harris penned sugar-rush euphoria of 'In My Arms', the slightly Europop-ness (in a good way) of 'The One' and the Cathy Dennis 'Wow' (which I think sound like a cross between 'Love At First Sight' and Madonna's 'Holiday') are for me the standouts. They could all be classic Kylie singles. There are very few - if any if I'm being honest - that I dislike.

As an artist, this is a really important album for Kylie so she can re-establish herself musically. As we all know, she's been away. But it's brilliant. It's absolutely her, the sleeve art is gorgeous, the songs really stand up, and they also sound ace very, very loud. This is the Kylie album I've been waiting (and hoping) for. It's so great to have her back looking and sounding better than ever.
