"Neon Nights" is a dance-pop record, with a very electronica sensibility that runs through it. Think of Madonna's "Ray of Light" and Kylie Minogue's "Impossible Princess", and this album follows in that William Orbit-soaked tradition. This is a good thing, because it means that there is no `filler'. In fact, every song from this could be a single. The most successful one from this album was "I Begin to Wonder" (which reached UK No.2) and the more addictive "Put the Needle on It" (an addictive chorus that you'll be humming for days). Standout tracks also include my personal favorite "Creep" (which is a homage to both a lover and a drug - at the same time1), and "Vibe On". But Dannii really shines toward the end of the album with the epic "A Piece of Time", an instant pop classic. It's a pity this song isn't better known, as it certainly propels the album into a totally different stratosphere.
"Neon Nights" is an album that you will instantly like. This is not an album you have to play three, four times before you find something worth singing along to. Every song is straightforward verse-corus-verse, and its all frothy and light hearted. The perfect party album?Read more ›
"Neon Nights" is frank dance with unashamed flamboyance. There are already three hits on this album. The absolutely fabulous "Put The Needles On It" and the funky club tune "I Begin To Wonder." Plus the techno romp "Who Do You Love Now?" with Riva.
"Push" sounds alertingly similar to Monifah's "Touch It"
The album is very promising with songs like "Creep" and "For The Record" and it never settles for less then stompers, check out "Hey! (So What)."
To fully appreciate this album try to avoid Kylie comparisons - as Kylie is the goddess of dance. But Dannii definitely has something to offer on this album.
Since popular culture is adamant on "keeping it real" and hardcore, whatever that is, "Neon Nights" might have a hard time breaking it stateside. But, whoever said unapologetic glossy dance can't have true emotion. While the media tries to define what is real by awarding and giving props to the likes of the utterly-bland Nora Jones, pick up "Neon Nights" and be prepared to dance for inspiration.
'Put The Needle On It' - A sexy dance number with plenty of nudge, nudge, Wink, Wink references. Oh yeah, it's Dannii's big sister's favourite. 10/10
'Creep' - Dark and sultry this track is best after dark. 10/10
'I Begin To Wonder' - Dannii's highest reaching single (#2 UK) 9/10
'Hey!(So What)' - One of my favourits, you won't be able to keep your feet still with this electric pop track which has 'Hit Single' written all over it. 10/10
'For The Record' - A lighter more flirty number, yet still very danceable. 8/10
'Mighty Fine' - A fantastic fluffy pop number that screams 70's. 9/10
'On The Loop' - This time its back to the 80's and acid pop. 8/10
'Push' - Another naughty dance number which hints (very loudy) at sex. 9/10
'Mystified' - This track is more urban and reminds me of J.Lo, only better. 10/10
'Don't Wanna Lose This Feeling' - Dannii's latest single, a light pop track, perfect for summer. 10/10
'Vibe On' - Dannii has fun with this pop track with urban overbites, that is about music vibes pumping from a speaker, not products from Anne Summers! 9/10
'A piece of Time' - One of Dannii's favourites, this dance track is a bit heavier. 8/10
'Who Do You Love Now?' - The garage/dance song that launched Dannii's comeback, another hit (#2 UK) that will have you up on the dancefloor. 10/10
'It Won't Work Out' - A haunting ballad that shows of Dannii's impressive vocals, yet funked up with dance music. It winds you down perfectly.Read more ›
'Put The Needle On It' - A sexy dance number with plenty of nudge, nudge, Wink, Wink references. (#7 UK commercial, #1 UK dance).
'Creep' - Dark and sultry this track is best after dark.
'I Begin To Wonder' - Dannii's highest reaching single (#2 c #1 d)
'Hey! (So What)' - A lovely poppy, sing-a-long track, you won't be able to keep your feet still with this!
'For The Record' - A lighter more flirty number, yet still very danceable.
'Mighty Fine' - A fantastically retro, fluffy pop number.
'On The Loop' - Heavy on the synchs, surprising for a `pop' artist. Very well done.
'Push' - Another naughty dance number, again this will get stuck in your head.
'Mystified' - Lyrically urban, but heavy synchs.
'Don't Wanna Lose This Feeling' - Dannii's last NN single (#5 c #1 d), a lighter, more `pop' track.
'Vibe On' - Dannii has fun with this pop track with urban overbites, which, apparently, is about music vibes pumping from a speaker, not products from Anne Summers. Dannii injects her cheeky humour into this. Oh, she even raps!!
'A piece of Time' - One of Dannii's favourites, this dance track is a bit heavier, that sounds somewhat similar to something Paul Oakenfield may release.
'Who Do You Love Now?' - The song that launched Dannii's comeback, another hit (#3 c #1 d) that will have you up on the dance floor.
`Come And Get It' - A remix of this song was hidden at the end of the original NEON NIGHTS. This radio edit is far superior & screams "single!"
`Nervous' - Originally a b-side, this fantastic track was wasted first time round.Read more ›
