  1. Probably my least favourite song left from Fever, but once again I can think of better candidates from the later albums.

    With Surrender gone, I'd be surprised if Automatic Love was far behind. Not a world of difference between the two, is there?

    Fragile is incredible.

    'cause I'm fragile when I hear your name
    Fragile when you call
    This could be the nearest thing to love
    And I'm fragile when I hear you speak
    Fragile feeling small
    This could be the closest thing to love


    I will never forget the first time I listened to it. I had just bought Fever (which was the first Kylie album I owned), I bought it in a charity shop for £1 because I found the cover art so striking that I had to see if the music matched the artwork nn. At the time, I had no idea who Kylie Minogue was. I remember being fully blown by every single track, but Fragile took me by surprise. Fever as an album is relentless, full of icy cold bangers, but in the middle of it, Fragile comes into play. It's a complete switch-up from the high-tempo songs that come beforehand, providing a breath of fresh air, but still maintaining a clear cohesion with the parent album - something that a lot of slower songs in dance-heavy albums tend to struggle with.

    I personally love Kylie's 'vulnerable' tracks - as you will see from the rest of my 11s - and Fragile is one of her best in this regard. It's stunningly lush. I'm not surprised to see it go out now considering slower songs tend to struggle in rates, regardless of that, I think the average is what I expected.
  3. Fragile is Brilliant, in retrospect I've should've given it a 10. Kylie does downtempo electronic tracks so well.
  4. She really does.

  5. Those two really hurt oh my ... I just love Fragile, and it should not have gone out before anything that's left on Kiss Me Once, and honestly the majority of what's left from Golden. Never Too Late is also unreal, I have no idea why I didn't give it a 10, but it's obviously suffering as part of the PWL parade

  6. Fragile leaving hurts. She shines on these kind of ethereal dancy numbers. There’s the callback to the atmospheric undertones of KM1994 and Impossible Princess, but the punchier production gives it a stronger oomph. One of my favorite deep cuts.

  7. For a while, I highly considered giving Fragile my Parlophone 11 but it ended up going to another track.

    I agree with what everyone said about it being an icy electroballad which Kylie does so well.

    Ugh, not Fragile! I'm so sad it's out.

    Admittingly, it is my most played Fever track the title track comes in a close 2nd. She sings with such vulnerability, delicacy and well, fragility, that you believe every word she's saying. It really is so subtle and so emotional. I'm never not in the mood to listen to Fragile.

    But I get butterflies
    Water in my eyes
    When I think of you...
    I could break in two-o-o

    Ugh. So lush. Would've been a contender for my 11 along with The One and I Believe In You. Really upset I didn't see this rate open in time.

  9. Sorry, but I never heard anything exceptional about "Fragile". It's evidently a good mid-tempo song, but the melody doesn't do much for me. Also, the verses are a bit better than the chorus.
    Still, it received a 7 from me, since I love the backing vocals, as well as the production.

  10. It's... nice and cute, but that's it. This applies to most of Fever's album tracks, actually.

    Fever, More More More, Your Love, Fragile, and Love Affair... all 10s, sis.

  12. *checks notes*
    Only two of these are 10s, and one is a 9. More More More, Give It To Me, Fragile, Dancefloor, Burning Up are all quite forgettable filler tracks to me.
  13. I'm so glad we were able to give an 11 for each era. That little bump might be what's saving a lot of the remaining PWL and Deconstruction songs.
  14. Was it the case that you could only give one 0 for each era too?

  15. "Fever" or "Love Affair" should be the last Fever album track standing, tbh.
  16. The Fever title track is overrated and they were right to abort on the single plans.

    There, I said it.

  17. I can't believe we've now lost Fragile and Loving Days?!? I'd probably be hurting more if I were a PWL stan losing beloved singles though dd.

  18. @Ana Raquel - 11 This bassline is magnificent.
    @Sprockrooster - 11 Like A Drug who? This is that dark dancefloor banger that has that Kylie-infectiousness to it. Exactly what I love and I am thrilled I can throw my love for it. By far my fave from this album! She snapped on this album and I feel like Say Hey embodies that perfectly without sounding too experimental.

    @mrdonut - 10 A very effective encapsulation of what it’s like to need communication with the one you love. Pure class in every way.
    @Andsov - 9 This song has so many layers, I keep hearing new sounds and sighs.
    @nanafan - 8 Minimalist chic. Sounds dark and brooding and works really well.

    @CasperFan - 7 Understated and one that really grew on me-not her most melodic but quite hypnotic.
    @M24 - 7 Just as, if not more atmospherical than Breathe.. Wish Kylie owned that instrumental though, because it feels like that's the only thing that makes this track good. There's just not enough variation in the lyrics or in the melody.

  19. 3 11's is deserved, but damn that should mean it can be out just yet. Wtf

  20. WhatKindOfMess am I witnessing. A ZERO!? To the Say Hey? To the dark, atmospheric, sonic equivalent of laser beams? To the song that gave us the title of the infamous forum?
