4.0 out of 5 stars Good, but could be better., 22 Mar. 2014
This review is from: Kiss Me Once [CD+DVD] (Audio CD)
I don't quite know where to rate Kiss Me Once. It certainly has some high moments, but unfortunately a few lows too. Overall at first glance/listen it seems to be lacking the strong identity that her last few albums had.

Firstly, why all the sex?? It seems to be marketed at the 14 yr old boy market with sex being mentioned in 3 song titles. Sexy Love is fine, Les Sex I'll let go (though it could have easily had a different title) but Sexercise?? Really?? Kylie always cornered the 'Sexy' market without ever going over the line to 'Sexual' territory. Not here though, the video in particular is bordering tacky and ignoring all that I can think of multiple songs more worthy of a single release.

Several high points despite all that. Into the Blue is a great song, as are Kiss Me Once, Fine, Cancel, Les Sex, and others. If I was reviewing the regular release it might have been 3 stars, however both bonus tracks are great and push it to a definite 4.

I do wish producers had more faith in her vocals though. Often over-produced it covers up how good her voice can be and occasionally she's tweaked into sounding like a chipmonk. The BBC Proms and other live shows have proved she can sing, so let her! 'Beautiful' is near-ruined by the effects and how bland En-reeky sounds. Look forward to hearing any future versions of that. (Bono improved the already-great 'Kids' so there's hope!)

Not my favourite of her last few albums but still better than most other pop artists. Looking forward to the tour!

The same is for the cd cover.Kylie is a good looking women,with good business sense.She owns a lot of property all over the world.I liked the track she sung on the television the other evening.That when she neede help and a cuddle,so was desperately alone.Havin beauty,dame,stardom.When you have a health scare ,it doesent matter how much money you have,true friends don't leave you at anytime.If you have lots of money,or not a true friend would ve there whatever.Kylie has learnt that very close friends can be the weakest link in the chain.
