The Abbey Road Sessions
It had been quite a while since I was asked to listen and review new music and then I was sent two at the same time. So today, I will tell you about the CD I received just a few days ago, The Abbey Road Sessions by Kylie Minogue.
I had heard of Kylie Minogue, but I really wasn't familiar at all with her music or her voice. When One2One Network asked if I would like to listen to it and write about it, I was more than happy to see what she was all about.
Kylie has been singing for 25 years and for The Abbey Road Sessions album, she reworked the songs of her past and recorded in London's legendary Abbey Road Studios with her band and a full orchestra. Minogue is mostly known for her "pop" style and the songs on this album have been re-imagined and re-arranged to create an emotional album with clear, heartfelt vocals. After selling 60 million albums, acting roles and appearances...her voice is still youthful and unique.
As for my personal review of the album, it is a difficult review for me. I love it when I get a new CD that is just my style of music and I love it. As for this one, I have nothing to compare it to since I had never listened to Kylie on any other album. I think if you are a fan of Kylie, you will enjoy listening to all of her hits with a new "twist" to them. I found her voice and style on this album not to be my personal taste, but it would be unfair to say it isn't a good album just because I didn't this style of music. I do appreciate the amount of work that must have gone into changing all of the songs, adding the orchestra and there is no doubt her voice sounds very youthful after 25 years! I think her fan base will be thrilled with this new project.
I suggest that you listen to samples of the CD here. You can decided for yourself if this is the CD for you! The CD is available now and you can read more about Kylie at www.kylie.com.
I will happily send my copy of her CD to the first person who asks for it and sends me their mailing address. I know that some of you are Kylie fans!
