no more rain
10 albums in, and this is probably the most anticipated kylie album of them all. after beating breast cancer, and embarking on the huge showgirl homecoming tour, fans were awiting the new offering with bated breath..
and X doesnt dissapoint. with 1st single, and storming album opener 2 hearts, kylie instantly draws you in with the unexpected, glam-pop gem which is catchy and cool all at the same time. and the follow on singles 'wow' and 'in my arms' prove that kylie still has a penchant for producing instant memorable, pop classics.
this album is slick pop at its best, but its the heartfelt ballad of 'no more rain' which shines out over the polished songs, which adds a much needed, deeper and personal feel to the whole affair, as kylie tackles the subject of her illness with a fighting positivity, and still manages to marry it with a catchy tune. the other highlight is the sublime 'the one' with its blondie-esque disco dusted beat, goosebump inducing electric guitar, and smooth vocals, making for a song that should have had a physical release, which surely would have given kylie her 4th uk top 10 from this album. a welcome return indeed
