Editorial Reviews

To close out 2012, the year she celebrated K25, her 25 years as a recording artist, Kylie releases The Abbey Road Sessions, featuring many of her best-known hits "I Should Be So Lucky," "Can't Get You Out Of My Head" and "Locomotion" as well as rarities and collaborations, most notably a re-recording of her 1996 duet "Where The Wild Roses Grow" with Nick Cave. With breathtaking, cinematic new arrangements for orchestral ensemble, we hear the full range of Kylie's beguiling voice, as well as explore a new side to the magical songs that have catapulted her to international acclaim. Think of it as Kylie's intimate "best of" collection . . . up close and personal, with hand on heart.

I confess that I'm not a particularly devoted listener of Kylie Minogue's music. I've enjoyed her songs on the radio and web, and danced to them on nights out. But her music is usually a little outside the musical genres I spend the most time listening to (rock, jazz, blues).

That said, what piqued my curiosity about this CD - and inspired me to give it a listen - was the very intriguing concept. The Abbey Road sessions features 16 of Kylie's songs, collected throughout her long career, completely reworked, and performed with a full orchestra and Kylie's band at London's Abbey Road Studios.

Kylie's usual high-energy pop production has been scaled down (and the songs mostly slowed down) in favor of fresh orchestral and acoustic arrangements, sometimes hushed, some with soaring highs, and many with a jazz or blues flavor. All but one of Kylie's danceable pop hits are presented as ballads here. They're still mostly pop, but it's a more adult, sophisticated variety - often sweet or romantic, and occasionally dark or seductive.

The album's first single, is the previously-unreleased "Flower." Written during the time of her breast cancer treatments, when her eventual ability to have a child was in question, "Flower" is a wistful, tender love letter to a hoped-for future child:

Distant child, my flower
Are you blowing in the breeze?
Can you feel me?
As I breathe life into you
In a while my flower
Somewhere in a desert haze
I know one day you'll amaze me

"The Locomotion," written by Gerry Goffin and Carole King, was a hit for Little Eva back in 1962, 25 years before Kylie's success with it in 1987. And, 25 years later, Kylie reaches back to the 1960s for inspiration, giving the song a fun Motown-esque makeover.

Back around 2005-ish, I heard a lovely piano version of her "I should be so lucky" she performed on Jools Holland show, and it sounded like it was taken from a disney fairy tale movie. The song's version here is very similar to the one she performed there. Goosebumps.

This is how pop songs grow up. Take a hit song, strip it from its effects that were "in" the time it came out, and honor it with a proper orchestral arrangement. The combination of the orchestra, instruments and Kylie's naked voice, gives your ears a spa treatment, a warm hug to your soul, a smile on your face and an occasional tear in your eye.
What a way to celebrate the K25. Kylie Minogue knows who she is, knows her musical history and embraces her age and the time that has passed. She is giving us a fresh taste of old favorites with a very pleasant mature presentation.
In your hand - a timeless, brilliant pop album that stays forever and feels like you just had the best glass of wine in your life.

Is it really 2012? or the good years of the 90's?

Give the woman a crown. Kylie, please do more like this.
I recommend to anyone. New fans, old fans, random listeners.

I have been a fan of Kylie Minogue's since the late 80s, but even so I was still pleasantly surprised at how nice and lovely this album is. Kylie's voice has always been pop-friendly and pleasing to the ear, certainly every bit as good as Madonna's, but it just never seemed like it was made for anything outside of slick recording studio production and strategically placed drum machines. Her energy and amazing showmanship on stage might have almost been a distraction, at times, keeping you from wondering whether she could be both a talented performer and a talented vocalist.

Boy, was I wrong! She shines on The Abbey Road Sessions and makes a smart move in completely revamping all of her hits into something much more powerful. "I Believe You" is beautiful and vulnerable. "Can't Get You Out Of My Head" transforms what was once a one-trick pony (who couldn't get that oddly hypnotizing song out of their head back in the early 00s?) into an actual song. "The Locomotion" keeps its original charm and then some, Kylie's voice sounding better now than it did in '87. Another stand-out is "Flower," a tear-inducing track that will probably have you reaching for the tissues.

I mean no disrespect in doubting Kylie's talent at first. She is not only a force to be reckonized with in the pop world (for so many of her fans she is more than just the European version of Madonna), she seems like an awfully nice person who has faced adversity with grace and style.

Australian born, Kylie Minogue has been a global pop icon for 25 years. She has had 60 million global album sales, multiple hit singles, global tours, collaborations, countless industry accolades, acting roles and TV appearances. In 1987 her music career started when she released her first single; a remake of the 1962 Little Eva hit "Locomotion". She has been singing and acting ever since.

Being released in the US on November 6th, this album, The Abbey Road Sessions was recorded in London's legendary Abbey Road Studios with Kylie's band and a full orchestra. As much as I love full orchestras usually, I miss her 80's flair on this album. The songs do not have the same flavor. Her songs don't pop in the same way and are not as upbeat. The sixteen tracks on this album have been radically re-imagined and rearranged. She had always wanted to record in this way and so it was one of those things I think that she needed to do and I applaud her in living out her dream.

Don't get me wrong, I love the album, but in a totally different way. This album has a more emotional tone to it. Her voice shines and resonates more in this album. The songs are more clear and defined. The orchestral arrangement of this album and sound of the studio gives it a special ambiance. I love the reworked "Can't Get You Out Of My Head". It still works well with the orchestra. The previously unreleased "Flower" is one of my favorites on the album. I love the lyrics! She wrote this song years ago following her battle with breast cancer as an ode to the child she hopes to have some day.

Deluxe is crap. Buy the standard.
Thank you so much for your comments on the deluxe packaging. I've been trying to find someone who had a comment regarding it. You've steered at least 1 fan now in the right direction. Wish they would have at least thrown it a bonus track like 2 other countries have. Thanks again!
