General Comments
Okay, so when I heard that Kylie Minogue was finally releasing her 10th Studio album, I would bet that every true fan of Kylie had butterflies in their stomach. Why? I'll tell you. Kylie had me when she first burst onto the scene with her bubblegum pop and 80's perm. I was 4 years old. I have been a fan since then even in her Deconstruction days when she was doing 'Confide in Me' and 'Cowboy Style'. Like other fans, there is a sense of "Oh my god! What if I don't like the new album? Will I go to hell? Will Kylie find out? Oh my life is not worth living!" Okay so over exaggeration (slightly) but the fear is always there when your favorite artist releases something new. Again I say, true fans will know exactly what I am talking about. So having listened to the album, what do I think? Well, here it is.

The entire album is a electro-disco-pop extravaganza topped off at the end with a nice slowish number - Cosmic. With producers such as Calvin Harris, the Freemasons, Guy Chambers and Bloodshy & Avant, X was always going to be great. Songs to look out for are 'Wow', 'Cosmic', 'In Your Arms' and 'Speakerphone'. In Your Arms is such a heart tugging song but strangely makes you want to get up and shake your booty. I think only Kylie manages to work on a song that can do this.

For the old school Kylie fans (like me, although I love everything she does!), these guys will be rushing to the songs 2 Hearts, Wow and Like a Drug. The best album I have heard this year. It is right up there with Fever, Light Years and in my opinion surpasses Body Language in every way (and I loved Body Language so that is saying something!)

All I can say is welcome back to the ultimate Queen of Pop. All those people who don't like it, that's fine but I really think that you should get your emotions, ears and feelings checked! Kylie, we love you and can't wait to see your tour!
