Some kind of bliss

"2002 is Kylie Minogue's year. "Fever" has reintroduced the United States to the Aussie pop princess with her first US hit in years "Can't Get You Out of My Head". I personally have rediscovered Kylie with "Light Years" a couple of years ago. I have heard nothing but good things about "Impossible Princess" which some fans consider Kylie's most personal album to date like "Behaviour" was to the Pet Shop Boys. "Impossible Princess" is definitely different from "Light Years" and "Fever". Those albums is much disco-influenced in comparison to this album. "Impossible Princess" is a mixture of pop and rock but still danceable nonetheless. I didn't know what to think of this album on the first listen but on the second time I listened to the album, the songs just really clicked with me. I absolutely loved "Cowboy Style" and "Some Kind of Bliss", two of my favorite tracks off the album. I don't think people who got hooked on Kylie with "Fever" would be much interested in "Impossible Princess" since there really isn't a single tune on this album as catchy as "Can't Get You Out of My Head" but for those who want tto explore Kylie's back catalog, this is the album to get. Now while it sold poorly, "Impossible Princess" is an artistic success for Kylie. This album is quite a contrast to "Light Years" and "Fever", and equally enjoyable to listen to."

"Kylie has come a long way from the youthful soap star that she was, and that is what she has been trying to show since she joined deConstruction records. Capitalizing on the new styles that she dealt with in her last recording "Kylie Minogue", she firmly shows us that she is the heir to the indie-Diva throne. Starting with "Too Far", and ending with "Dreams"-both haunting tracks, the former self-reprimanding and the latter self-empowering, and both sung in a style that focuses on her voice melding with and triumphing over the melodies of the song around her-Kylie shows us a not always flattering veiw of herself, which is made doubly legitimate by the fact that she wrote most of the albums tracks. Tracks such as "Limbo", "Drunk", and "Tears" showcase the 'screaming female' side of Kylie and would not be out of place next to the likes of Tori or Alanis. "Jump" and "Through the Years", while the lesser tracks, still flesh out this 'story-as-Kylie-sees-it', as well as allowing her much stronger and mature voice to play with these new melodies and musical styles that were only hinted at on her last album. And let us not forget her ability to play, which she does so sensually and captivatingly in the trance-influenced "Say Hey", as well in the heavy and over-whelming "Breathe". Essentially, this album has catapulted Kylie to all new heights, tackling electronica, trance, country, orchestral, and folk rhythms with much fusion and ease. It makes it easy to believe that she can go anywhere from here. Miss Minogue summed up her career with the track "Did it Again", and with this album, that is exactly what she has done."
So, so good!

"Impossible Princess is easily Kylie's best CD. It's a mature statement of who the woman is, how she feels, and why she acts the way she does.The music itself cannot be classified into a specific genre. Songs range from having a rockier feel (Some Kind of Bliss, I Don't Need Anyone), to being dancier (Tears), to being trancy (Breathe). The only constant factor in each song is a feeling of greatness. Each and every song is fantastic, and Kylie very obviously knows it.I recommend this CD to almost anyone. It really is a fantastic album"
