Kylie Minogue - DISCO: Guest List Edition

Not open for further replies.
At this point my opinion about Real Groove has improved since yesterday, Magic is still not good enough to waste time hearing it, Where Does the DJ Go? sounds even worse and I'm probably never listening to it again I hated every single time I played it more than the previous one, and Last Chance is both the most unnecessarily loud and the least eloquent/most clunky - she sounds like she's doing acrobatics trying to fit the syllables in those melodies - so I'm letting that one go as well.
With Real Groove back in my playlist, I'm happy with the 13 tracks I've kept after removing Magic, DJ and Last Chance.
Scottish and Northern Irish users.

If you live within a safe, reasonable distance, there are signed copies of the standard CD in your local hmv. £10.99. First come first served. Most stores were given between 2 and 5 copies each. Stirling, Livingston and Fopp Glasgow did not recieve any. Couldn't say anything until now because of an embargo. The signature is in the booklet, not on the cover.

@RJF on his way!
Monday Blues is the only 'eh??' spot after one listen, but her albums tend to warrant a good half dozen spins before I'll start to build a picture of what I like.

Maybe you should've given up on the track, @WhereDoesTheDJGo
Finally heard it. Just the standard edition. Despite being totally different beasts, I couldn’t help comparing it with Jessie Ware’s What’s Your Pleasure. I think DISCO’s perfect for hen parties - especially those organised specifically to help overcome the drudgery of everyday life at the moment, with a fierce focus on FUN (upper-casing and in bold).

What’s Your Pleasure, on the other hand, is more suited for those introspective, pensive evenings - perfect for those lonely moments at the bar, when we’re wrestling with our secret demons and desires, debating what to do next. To that end, I know which album will have a more important place in my heart this year.

That said, I love the melodies on Disco. I love her confidence and her exuberance. I will be returning to this album a lot more than I did Golden (which I supported and liked). For me, this is a fantastic return to form and, in many ways, I couldn’t be happier.
My signed CD just arrived.

I know it's been discussed to death but, my God, the album cover is hideous. It's somehow even worse in person, especially now seeing the gorgeous picture on the back of the booklet.
Kylie doing disco/disco-inspired music has no chance of being objectively bad. Her delivery feels genuine and very warm, even if it's a by-the-numbers affair. I'm surprised to like Disco more than I thought I would after being quite underwhelmed with most aspects of the era (Magic and the art direction in particular).

With that in mind, Disco sounds good. There's not much variation on the album but it ties together nicely. Is it superficial and uninspired in places? To me, yes. But still sounds nice, there's no way it's gonna be bad. But with incredible, varied approaches of the genre this year, this feels a tad more superficial, at least at first play. A lot of replay value for me, though, and I'm sure I'll grow attached to many songs.
