This review is from: X (Audio CD)
I think its probably too soon to write a review as this long-player has only been out a few days, but since everyone else has voiced their opinion (some of which pretty negative) I thought I'd give mine aswell.
Put simply: this is a fantastic album. When I bought "Body Language", way back in '03 (on the day of release), at the first listen I was severely dissapointed. Okay, I loved "Slow", and "Still Standing" was fantastic, but much of the rest was pretty dull... the other single releases ("Red Blooded Woman" and "Chocolate") probably being the worst tracks on the album (I was absolutely dumbfounded when they were released, especially compared to the aforementioned "Still Standing", and also the fantastic "Sweet Music" & "After Dark"). "X" however abslutely blew me away.
From the seductive opening bars of "2 Hearts", through to the closing echoes of "Cosmic", the whole album is a delightful musical journey, proving again that Miss Minogue still holds the crown when it comes to pop music. I'm really pleased with this, and I hope Kylie keeps up the good work for another 10 albums!!!
