So after nearly a fortnight’s wait, Kylie’s X finally turned up yesterday (the post round here, well, the parcel side, anyway, is APPALLING since the strike). Fortunately, I had managed to hear it before that, thanks to The Kylie Show, X-Amining Kylie and a very kind man called Paulie who is one of my best LC mates.
As with most Kylie albums (Kylie, Impossible Princess and Light Years excepted because they are great throughout), it is patchy – some amazing stuff, but also too much filler in places. However, it IS Kylie, so it is still better than most other things out there. And the placement of her two best songs in a while, The One, followed by No More Rain is the single most joyous moment on any CD I’ve heard this year. Aww. I just love her.
