4.0 out of 5 stars Kylie's 'middle period' in a bargain package, 17 July 2007
This is the second Kylie compilation to be called 'Confide in me', although this one has an 'Irrestible Kylie' suffix. The two-disc set contains no less than 36 tracks from her time on the deConstruction label. As well as containing ALL the tracks from the original releases of both the 'Kylie Minogue' and 'Impossible Princess' albums, it is also liberally sprinkled with B-sides, alternative versions and a few remixes from the period. With the exception of the numerous single remixes produced in this period (which you can find elsewhere), pretty much everything she released on the label is here. As you'd perhaps expect, the quality is variable but at the price it's impossible to complain too much. If you do have a favourite from this era, it's almost certainly going to be on this compilation! AT THE PRICE, YOU CAN'T GO WRONG.

4.0 out of 5 stars For fans only..............................., 17 Sep 2002
This is Starsailor's first DVD (or video) release and is basically a retrospective of the first 12 months or so after the band came to prominence.
The bulk of the DVD is a full length live concert at London's Forum, recorded in November 2001. All of the 'Love Is Here' favourites are given an outing, plus there's one new track ('Some of Us'). The songs are all pretty much true to the LP versions- but I guess that's what most fans would want. Perhaps most interesting are the various 'documentaries' included on the DVD. There's documentaries covering life on tour with the band and the recording of the album, plus the 4-Play show, originally broadcast on Channel 4.
To round things off, there's also all the videos of the 'LIH' singles, an on-screen discography and animated menus.
Overall, this DVD provides a comprehensive review of what Starsailor have achieved so far, but provides little insight into where they're going next- I guess we'll have to wait for that.
In summary though, this release is good value (by music DVD standards) and should probably be considered an essential purchase for Starsailor fans. If you're not familiar with the band, I suggest you start with the 'Love is Here' CD.
