Biography

Kim Wilde. Mention her name and people’s eyes light up. The blonde singer with the siren voice is after all one of pop music's most dazzling stars.

Editorial Reviews

EU-only 2011 album from the British '80s Pop diva. With Snapshots, Kim Wilde goes through more than three decades of music history and releases her very personal soundtrack. For the first time in her career, Kim Wilde produces a full album with cover versions of songs that haven't just influenced, impressed and accompanied her:: Snapshot is the photo album of a whole generation. Sony.

4.0 out of 5 stars It's a pretty solid outing...... October 27, 2011
Format:Audio CD
I love Kim Wilde. I have since I was a sophomore in high school and first heard "Kids In America" and her debut album. I was aghast when EMI didn't release either "Select" (shoulda coulda made her bigger than The Go Go's or at least a peer to Debbie Harry) or "Catch As Catch Can" in the States (they even went as far as giving "Catch" a catalog number), practically assaulted the MCA rep (I was working in music retail at the time) for all the promo posters for "Teases & Dares", championed her US ascent with the Supremes cover, and lamented its ambivalence when "Close" failed to click. I'm that kind of fan - the kind that knew about (and despite it possibly rankling my cool-cred, loved) the Nena duet, and was totally on board when "Never Say Never" came about in 2006, and the incredibly underrated "Come Out & Play" in 2010. After proving her mettle (besides still looking pretty great and sounding better than in her halcyon days) on the last two outings, I was initially apprehensive on a covers project. I'm happy to report I was wrong.

The choice of material is pretty varied - some of it works better than expected, some of it leaves you scratching your head. But when it works, it's magic - having first thought Tasmin Archer was Kim when I first heard "Sleeping Satellite" 20 years ago, it seemed like a natural fit, and it is - not detracting from the original, a clean, understated arrangement lends itself well to her voice, and by the time the 'whoa whoa whoa' bridge kicks in, you sense she's claiming it as her own, as I thought it was in its original self.

4.0 out of 5 stars Parting Shots September 20, 2011
Format:Audio CD
Surely releasing a 100% covers album is a bad sign for any artist - does it mean that songwriters don't want you to record their songs anymore so, instead, you re-record everyone else's old tracks...despite saying that, I think this is pretty good collection of tunes.

Of course there is a lack of originality (don't expect an album of covers reminiscent of 'You Keep Me Hangin' On', where Kim made the song her own) as you'll be disappointed. She sticks pretty much too the original scores (she could've been a Sugerbabe on 'About You Now' as her version is so close to the original, and her version of 'Wonderful Life' adds nothing to the song or the classic Black version).

However, her revision of the early 90's East 17 number 'It's Alright' is quite funky (and an unexpected choice of song too) and she was brave to tackle 'Anyone Who Had a Heart', which is a belting ballad more suited to stronger voices than hers (and everyone knows that Dusty Springfield recorded the definitive version in the late 60's anyway) but she gives it her best and there is a great Drifters-esque rift mid-way through, which is a lovely nod to the songs sixties roots.

On the negative side she butchers 'A Little Respect' (I'm quite sure that Erasure fans will be less than pleased with her spin on this classic tune) and sounds flat & expressionless on several of the tracks (gone, it would seem, are the wonderful inflections and note changes heard on past glories such as 'Four Letter Word' and the like) but I think this is possibly down to some weak song choices that don't really suit her voice. As example, the albums stand out track 'To France' is terrific; her cover is fresh and clean, with great vocal over a perfect 80's synth sound.

5.0 out of 5 stars The perfect interpretation..... September 30, 2011
By Pearson
Format:Audio CD
Kim Wilde just seems to get better with age. She has taken these old pop classics and breathed new life into them. Standout tracks: Sleeping Satellites, Kooks, In Between Days, Beautiful ones, and Anyone who had a heart....honestly there is not a bad track on this cd. I have listened to it non stop about 7 times now. Another jewel to add to an already very stellar body of work.

4.0 out of 5 stars CD is missing track #15 "Forever Young" June 27, 2014
By Cherie
Format:Audio CD
Minus one star for the CD track listing and enclosed book including "Forever Young" as the 15th, and last, track. This track is not on the CD itself. A quick Google search reveals others share this problem as well, with one suggesting only the German version actually has the track. Some clarity would be helpful. Otherwise, great album! My faves are "Sleeping Satellite," "To France" and "Kooks."
