Kylie Minogue - 'Kiss Me Once'

Album Info

  • Release Date: March 17, 2014
  • Producer: Ariel Rechtshaid, Pharrell Williams
  • Label: Parlophone
7 / 10 Producers Of The Moment, Ariel Rechtshaid and Pharrell Williams, on a Kylie album? Why not? After all, the brilliance of Team Minogue has always been to hop on passing musical trends while remaining true to the essence of Kylie. In 2014 that means warped vocal effects and a martial R&B beat not a million miles away from Vampire Weekend’s ‘Modern Vampires Of The City’ on ‘If Only’ and ‘Get Lucky’-ish electro disco on ‘I Was Gonna Cancel’, which features Williams at the helm.

Elsewhere, there are dubstep snarls on (ahem) ‘Sexercize’, fashionably ’90s vocal cut-ups on the deep house-y ‘Fine’ and I-love-you-no-I-love-you choruses and church bells on the epic title track. ‘Kiss Me Once’ proves that after 26 years in the business, Kylie can still pull off a very modern pop album.
