KM94 also makes a great sister album to Bedtime Stories by Madonna I think. Both released around the same time, got a similar vibe going on.
I personally don't think that KM94 had a potential Single No. 4, but if they'd released something as Single No. 4, I would've liked one of the mid-tempo R&B tracks. "If I Was Your Lover" or "Surrender" could've been decent options. Not great options, but decent.
I don't mind Where Has The Love Gone, but yes it did very much need an edit to it. As for Falling...
Time will pass you by would have charted at about #28 and been out of the chart a week later.
I find it pretty funny that almost every song on self-titled was considered to be a single at one point or another. What a poorly managed campaign.
I think that the six minute+ track lengths work for "Falling" and "Where Has The Love Gone?" I feel like it's a bit hard to judge them now with a 2022 lens because shorter tracks have become the norm. The track length gives each track the room to breathe and build. I like how atmospheric they are. Atmospheric is a great word to describe KM94 in general, imo.
What I love about Deconstruction is that they made some very expensive decisions that had no chance of being a hit. They could easily have done a single edit of the Bish Bosh remix of Where Is The Feeling with Kylie dancing about in a video clip and it would have done well. And I love that they went for the talking remix with Kylie swimming about in a pool instead.
I think there are very few examples of really good campaigns from Deconstruction. The quality is there though, but it's not surprising they went bankrupt.
I think Surrender would have made a good single.
I think it’s fair to say she was distracted at that point.I mean they handled M People pretty well. I wouldn't necessarily blame deCon for everything that failed with Kylie. I think she was determined to do things very differently too. I just think they didn't understand her fanbase at all.
