Kylie Minogue

I’m not sure Some Kind of Bliss was a mistake as such. I 100% understand the situation Deconstruction were in because nothing sounded like a single on that album. People maybe didn’t respond to “indie Kylie” but I really doubt they’d have liked dark tortured Kylie more, if Too Far or Limbo were singles.
 
The debut should have been a rocky yet poppy track a la Republica or Sneaker Pimps, left field but catchy.
I still think Some Kind of Bliss would've done better with better / gayer artwork.

The studio shots of Kylie in the denim mini dress from the video would have made an excellent cover.
 
Kylie doing trip-hop ala Sneaker Pimps would’ve been everything, Becoming X is an immaculate album.

Also, I could see her kicking ass on something similar to the single remix of “Spin Spin Sugar”.


As a lead, it could’ve been another “Confide In Me” moment.

…or a major flop, I don’t know what the UK/Oz charts at that time were like, nn.
 
I don't see 2 Hearts as a mistake. The new album thread cointains pages of users complaining about safe Kylie. When she does not go safe and she risks with a different song, it's called a mistake.
She tried something different. It wasn't a hit. But she tried, at least.
Then, she obviously went to safe mode with Wow.
Stars and Cosmic are still great tracks from X, even if I would have preferred a full orchestra like the one on The Kylie Show

I thought it was simpler than that from recollection. The Manics were so hot at the time, it was obvious that maximum exposure would come from releasing a James Dean Bradfield penned song. So they did.
I also recollect Chris Evans hammering it on radio play and he made records hits then, Toploader, Texas etc.
