4.0 out of 5 stars This is a grower!, 22 Jan. 2004

This review is from: Body Language (Audio CD)
I have to admit that on first listening I was disappointed with 'Body Language'. I loved the Fever album and have fond memories playing it over and over in the summer of 2001, working away on my computer or prancing around the room getting ready for a night out. 'Light Years' was alright, definitely better than her previous stuff but 'Fever' was simply fab. I was eagerly anticipating 'Body Langauge' but an extension of 'Fever' this wasn't. Instead it conjured up images of cocktail lounges -it sounded like the type of easy listening music that you have in the background of upmarket bistros. But I hadn't given it a fair hearing. Over the past weeks it's grown on me enormously, to the extent that I'm constantly humming 'Red Blooded Woman' and 'Chocolate'. Every track effortlessly flows into the next. I haven't heard such a cohesive album since Madonna's 'Ray of Light'. Though she didn't have a hand in writing any of the tracks bar 'Slow', this album really gets at the essence of Kylie. She's revealed herself and this intimacy with thoughts and feelings really strike a connection with the listener. 'Promises', 'Loving Days', 'Secret' are also brill and contrary to some critics' opinions, 'Still Standing' is great. Yes there is a Prince influence but that's not a bad thing, especially since Kylie herself was a fan in her early days. I've reviewed my original opinion of 'Fever', as an album 'Body Language' is infinitively better - no fillers here. There may not be the equivalent of the stumping anthem of 'Can't get you out of my head' but when Kylie is this interesting, you know you're onto a good thing.
