Another reissue from Dannii for her fans,
This review is from: Get Into You (Audio CD)
Over the past few years us Dannii Minogue fans have been treated to more that most specific-artist fans could even dream of. In 2006 we were treated to her first UK Greatest Hits 'The Hits And Beyond', that itself was so much more than your standard hits collection - not only did it feature 15 classic defining-pop moments but it also boasted 5 new tracks to whet fans appetites. In November 2007 Ms. Minogue brought us more stocking-fillers than we could have even hoped for. Her third album, 1997's 'Girl' and 2003's 'Neon Nights' were both re-issued with bonus remix discs and a plethora of b-sides, rareties and previously unreleased tracks and mixes. Also came The Video Collection, a DVD of all her clips so far, plus her 5th studio album 'Club Disco'. On the same day 'Unleashed' was - unleashed on us (I'm sorry, but it had to be done!). A hybrid release of hit remixes and previously unreleased demos from 2002-2004 it showcased a different side to Disco (as her fans and friends know her), experimenting slightly with the r'n'b sounds that echo back to this, her sophomore album from 1993 'Get Into You'.
Despite opening with the sugary sweet pop hit 'This Is It', the album is not in the same vein. 'This Is The Way' flirts with the early 90's dance scene and despite not being the huge hit it deserved to be (peaking at #27 in the UK charts) it is still as delicious a pop tune as ever. 'Be Careful' is a standout track, with gorgeous vocals and 'Wish You'd Stop Wishing' sounds as fresh as it did when the album was first released. 'Love's On Every Corner' showcases the songwriting talents of Cathy Dennis (who went onto pen older sister Kylie's 'Can't Get You Out Of My Head' amongst many other pop hits) and 'Get Into You' unleashes the rock goddess inside Dannii. As well as featuring the entire album re-mastered the main pull of this re-issue is the 3 previously unreleased bonus songs AND a b-side that was previously only released on cassette single! All 4 bonus tracks are worth a listen, with 'Feels So Good' in particular shining through as a standout. The bonus disc features a few gems, in particular the mixes of album track 'Be Careful', a song that should have been a hit single for this album.
Add onto this package another fantastic 24-page booklet, packed with photos and full album lyrics and this package completely exceeds all expectations. Once again Dannii does not disappoint, and it's releases like this that show just how much she loves and cares for her fans that have supported her all these years. There are very few artists who would invest all this time, effort and extras content into album re-issues and special fan releases.
