5.0 out of 5 stars the finer feelings..., 6 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Abbey Road Sessions (Audio CD)
of all the things said about kylie in her 25 year music career, one thing has always been agreed upon - shes a bonafide pop icon. one of the things people seem to dispute is her voice. can she really sing?

the simple answer is yes. kylies voice is very unique and instantly recognisable, but some people will be 'shocked' at the strength, and emotion this woman pours out into these 16 tracks. if you didnt know any of these songs you would like this album and at no point doubt this womans voice. however knowing the origins of these songs and hearing them in this new guise is staggering.

out go the dance beats, and layered vocals... and in come the strings, guitars and pianos. there are no smoke and mirrors on this album. the stunning bond-esque drama of cant get you out of my head, and finer feelings sweep you away in an epic landscape of violins. the old locomotion cover which was the naffest form of pop, is turned into motown-esque girl group pastiche. confide in me is as powerful as ever and seems to work with any rework thats ever been thrown at it, and is definately a highlight.

the two standout tracks though are the kiddies disco favourites from back in the day (1989 infact) hand on your heart is a stripped down guitar track, which follows closely to the jose gonzalez version a few years back.. and is a revelation. the other is never too late. a simple piano-vocal track, which oozes kylies vunerable heartfelt lyric and is a beautiful way to close this acoustic/orchestral masterpiece. after 25 years in the business, kylie has nothing to prove... but if there was just the tiniest speck of doubt, it will have long since dissipated by the close of the album. there are very few popstars who could have pulled such a feat off, and kylie has thrown everything shes got into this album, announcing to the world that she could very well be the best female vocalist in popmusic today, and will still likely be going strong when most of todays female pop pretenders have fallen by the wayside. order your copy today!

An outstanding review there, Rob. Having just bought the album and heard it for the first time, I'd have to echo everything you've said. It just blew me away.....
