Kylie - 'The Abbey Road Sessions'

Album Info

  • Release Date: October 29, 2012
  • Label: Parlophone
3 / 10 Kylie. One of pop’s great shapeshifters. An artist who morphed from pop princess to ‘Suicide Blonde’; who crossed the channel of ’90s indie reinvention and popped out the other side as dancefloor diva extraordinaire. Which is why this orchestral “reworking” of her career is so baffling. The warped electro-pop of ‘Can’t Get You Out Of My Head’ shrivels to a paltry string number, while the sodden piano of ‘Better The Devil You Know’ is more excruciating than a Gary Barlow B-side. Only the Bond-esque ‘Confide In Me’ is worthwhile in an otherwise sorry array of pop bangers left soggy on the barbecue.
