Product Description

Kylie Minogue ~ Body Language

After 16 years in the pop diva business, Kylie Minogue doesn't bother reinventing herself. Maybe that's why Body Language sounds so effortlessly appealing. Confidence permeates the record's savvy mix of modern and retro, implanting slinky tunes like "Slow" into your brain's guilty pleasure section. Aided greatly by producer Kurtis Mantronik's resourceful touch, sparse electroclash rhythms blend easily with Minogue's shrewd pop sense, milking it for maximum catchiness. True, Kylie's barely-there voice remains a weak spot, and her attempt at rap on "Secret (Take You Home)" doesn't quite work (though it's better than you might think). More often, those helium tones are put to effective use; her sighing vocal on "Chocolate" is pure, sweet decadence. Prince himself might be a little envious of how well Mantronik lays down the 1999-style electro-funk, as tracks like "Still Standing" glide along on computer soul and the singer's practiced tease. And therein lies Body Language's most impressive feat: It makes Minogue's plastic sex appeal sound not just like the most natural thing in the world, but like an honest-to-God artistic statement. --Matthew Cooke

It's surely tough to follow up on a smash album but on Body Language, Kylie has demonstated that it might not always be so. Fever (and its predecessor Light Years) preyed upon the recognizable cross-hybrid of retro/electronic pop and turned out great, giving her career a well-needed boost. With this album, Kylie has decided to turn another direction, for you'll find more street cred and funky urban beats to gyrate to.

When Slow was released as the first single, many were shocked. Where was the Can't Get You Out Of My Head? But then this was a great move. Slow is a piece of sensual and overtly sexual masterpiece with an orgasm-inducing video (found on the enhanced portion of this CD). Nothing has come so steamy in music since Madonna's days of Erotica/Justify My Love. Certainly there are many more - Red Blooded Woman with its funky and urban rhythm, Obsession with the same intensity of Destiny Child's Jumpin' Jumpin' and the delicious Chocolate which proves to be a worthy continuation of Slow with its ultra sexy hook. The latter will make any of Janet Jackson's past sex-themed songs seem like child's play.

Through all these, production plays a very important and turns Kylie's vocal limitation to an alluring purr most suited for these songs. For dance fans, fret not. there's the Air soundalike Still Standing that will keep you happy.

This effort may not be a sequel to 2001's hit Fever but is definitely a great follow up. May need some getting used to for some, but it's rewarding no less for Language is a pretty good pop album.

Many die-hard old-school Kylie fans (both the pre & post deconstruction varieties--for the three people in america that will know what the frick that means!) have been rather critical of this album. I can certainly see that if one is particularly attached to a particular incarnation of Kylie's public persona, that a shift, even as small as this one, could be troubling. But then again she is a pop star, and that's what they do...and she does it better than any I might ad.

This album turned me on to Kylie. I had originally been interested in it after seeing her performance of Slow at the Euro-VMA's back around October of '03 and was blown away...both visually and musically. So I purchased the disc on a whim a few months later, when it was released in america. While listening with a good set of headphones I noticed the brilliant production...which, if you look inside to see who did it it reads like a who's who of Italy, the UK, and other of Europe's finest, makes sense. I typically hate assembled pop music, and so it blew me away as to how exceptionally good it was...not to mention that I had to overcome my own pop prejudice (though i won't be buying britney spears tickets anytime soon!). Then I started really enjoying the music, bought a bunch of CD's, DVD's, Remixes, ETC. and have come to respect her professinally as an artist, performer,incredibly hard worker, & well, muse.

Body Language is certainly a shift from Fever. Both have a certain electronic nostalgia...for disco-pop and early 80's electro, respectively. But Fever was a shift from Light Years, which was a sort of blend of Fever and Impossible Princes...a transition...sorta. Anyway her new style has a heavy R&B influence as well with a nice deep funk feel to it.

While it's on the heels of her platinum-certified 2002 stateside comeback "Fever," this is certainly no rehash, trading that album's consistent dance-pop formula for a more urban/techno feel. It's a risky departure, but it still works.

"Body Language" debuted at a dismal No. 42 on Billboard's Top 200 Albums chart and is quickly losing its footing, while Britney Spears keeps selling truckloads of her latest album each week. Ironically, listening to both albums proves with flying colors that Spears is still an underclassman in Kylie's school.

The lead-single "Slow," which she co-wrote, is a perfect example of how less can be more. Although the song is unhurried and keeps the same tempo from beginning to end, which may be the reason it's receiving scant airplay, it becomes infectious after a few listens. Its accompanying video, which is a feast for the eyes, is also on the disc. The song's remix by the Chemical Brothers is available on the soundtrack to the hit television show "Queer Eye for the Straight Guy," a nod to Kylie's popularity in the gay community.

While none of the tracks on the album are as instantly catchy as "Love At First Sight" or "Can't Get You Out of My Head" from "Fever," many soon catch on. A perfect example is the disco-techy "Promises," which finds the Aussie diva picking up the pieces and leaving when her man hasn't stayed true to his words:

"Remember that I'm over you/And know that I will make it through/Hope you never forget it/The promises you made to me/Were really lies and fantasy."

While naysayers may dismiss the album as intellectually insulting, it's obvious that Kylie and her bevy of collaborators were not aiming to be overly serious here. This music is fun and meant to be nothing but.
