Overlooked Gem of The Late 90's,
This review is from: Girl (Audio CD)
This Album is Truely amazing, it marked Dannii Minogue's awaited return to Music in the summer of 1997, with her 3rd album release "Girl". The Queen of the Clubs took her first steps of reinventing herself from Poptart into Dance Diva! Now Back with a Fresh Edgy sound & sporting a sexed up blonde bombshell look....The 1st Single taken from "Girl" was the amazing "All I Wanna Do" an Uplifting Dance track which was written by Brian Higgins, S. McLennan, Tim Powell and Matt Gray, The song was an instant hit on both the Commercial chart & The Upfront Club Chart, where it reached Number 1. "All I Wanna do" today is still considered as one of Ms Minogue's Finest Dance Musical moments.
The 2nd release from "Girl" was "Everything I Wanted" Which Sealed Dannii with her 2nd Number 1 on The Club Chart, and a further Number One with the 3rd single release "Disrememberance". The 4th & Final Release from "Girl" was the Australia only single "Cocunut" A cover originally recorded by Harry Nilsson.
"Girl" was a turning point for Dannii, It was such a huge departure from her previous 2 albums, both in sound and style. "Girl" is an over looked gem of the Late 1990's it was an experimental Record incorporating lots of different sounds like Drum N Bass, Pop, Techno, House.... Other songs that stand out " It's Amazin" "Am I Dreaming?" "So In Love With Yourself" (With Big Sister Kylie) And the dreamily delicious "Everybody Changes Underwater"
***There is a planned Deluxe Re-issue release for the album reported in Aug of 2007, It is a Re-issue release that comes as a 2 CD set, Featuring loads of Bonus material, the original album, remixes & Rare unreleased recordings.***
