REVIEW: The Abbey Road Sessions - Kylie Minogue Like You Have Never Heard Before!

«Dance, it’s all I wanna do» spins in many people’s minds when it comes to Kylie Minogue and her music. Known as a Goddess of Pop, a Dancing Queen, she’s been delivering the best and most famous dance tunes through the years, to be exact - 25! Although, as interesting as it sounds, Kylie is very good at ballads and acoustic songs, as her recent single, Flower, from The Abbey Road Sessions album, proves.  

When it comes to questions like «what else can she do» and «how can she top that», she definitely finds best answers to those and does something completely new and unexpected. Just take the AntiTour earlier this year, which was a «stripped-down» style performance of the b-sides and unreleased tracks over the years, however all dates became sell-out hits.

This time, Ms Minogue and team decided to release not just another Greatest Hits album - but to work on it... quite a bit! And instead of the «mix-tape» of old and new, we got something completely new, and it’s called «The Abbey Road Sessions». It is more confident Kylie explaining the meaning of Pop, showing its purpose and taking it to the new level, not being afraid to break its «standards» and paving an exciting, yet unfamiliar way.

From her oldest hits, The Locomotion, I Should Be So Lucky and Never Too Late reworked into the unrecognizable ballads to the mysterious, never-getting-old, Confide In Me and string heaven of Can’t Get You Out Of My Head, to the latest, full orchestra, All The Lovers, - there’s definitely something to please anyone’s taste.

Thus, once a «declaration» of freedom, now completely different Better The Devil You Know transforms into a monologue of a hopeless and uncertain lover, a happy poppy I Should Be So Lucky gets a full new meaning thanks to string accompaniment and Kylie’s sweet voice, a piano version of Never Too Late becomes a melodic ballad, an anthem of forgiveness and hope, and when one would think the lyrical Finer Feelings could not get any more dramatic, the combination of the orchestra and Kylie’s vocals makes it even more powerful.

On the other hand, there is the selection of masterpieces that show the other side of what an orchestral album can sound like. First of all, the «rock meets softness» version of Can’t Get You Out Of My Head, that is for sure one mind-blowing recreation of Kylie’s biggest hit. The string elements in this version make this pop song more unique. The effortless performance of All The Lovers shows the beauty and potential of Kylie’s voice, which is hard to fully uncover in a typical pop song. The acoustic Love At First Sight remained a very bright song as it is supposed to be, only it got a new life in it, becoming simplier and even more lovable «fairytale»-comes-true tune. The team also «breathed new life in» Come Into My World - Kylie is accompanied only by a piano makes the song sound more personal and gentle, as if it is a call out to the soul-mate. 

If there was a great song about love, that would have to be Hand On Your Heart. But The Abbey Road Sessions interpretation of it is the PERFECT song about that state and all the feelings which go with it. This version has a sense of mystery in it at the end, a riddle we have to solve, a story we have to write our own ending to. Confide In Me seems to never get old - after dozens of interesting arrangements, the 1994 hit still got it. This song perfectly shows Kylie’s vocal abilities and how she can charm listeners using her voice changes. The quiet whispers of the iconic «confide in me and you will see what we can be» leave us wanting more. On A Night Like This, once a dance tune, reincarnates into a powerful love message, and I Believe In You becomes anyone's quiet lullaby for any time.

Did you know that the sexiest song could be even sexier? Apparently - yes, if it’s Kylie singing Slow in a slower way combined with the sexy breathy voice. The most anticipated «reunion» collaboration of Light and Darkness finally happened - Where The Wild Roses Grow was remastered and re-recorded for this LP by Kylie and Nick Cave himself.
The new single, Flower, has been long awaited for - the beautiful ballad about a «distant child», written by Kylie and her musical producer, Steve Anderson, not long after the breast cancer diagnosis, sends shivers down the spine.
And finally, the Locomotion - a stand out track from the album, which takes back in time, to the happy 60’s. Its addictive happy tune makes one «jump up» and «do the Locomotion».

Kylie’s stylist and friend, William Baker, once said: «Kylie is annoyingly good at everything she turns her hand to». It might sound unusual, but if Kylie’s ever to hang her hot pants and put her microphone down for good, «The Abbey Road Sessions» is one of the albums that will not be forgotten, for it is a masterpiece not everyone can make, and it’s done in a way that it will be very hard to forget about.

Thank you for reading!
Kylie's new GH album, "The Abbey Road Sessions" is out on October 29th (UK. For the information about the rest of the World, please click on the link) and available to pre-order HERE.

Justin Timberlake And Jessica Biel: We Do!

It's official! After five years of dating, Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel are husband and wife.

"It's great to be married, the ceremony was beautiful and it was so special to be surrounded by our family and friends," the couple told People in an exclusive statement on Friday (October 19th).

Timberlake, 31, and Biel, 30, kept mum about the nuptials – they were even vague to guests, keeping the location in southern Italy a complete secret until the last minute.
Engaged since December, when Timberlake proposed in Big Sky Montana with a custom-designed ring, the couple have been inseparable. Most recently, Timberlake showed support for his leading lady earlier this month when she was honored at Variety's Power of Women event for her work with Charity: Water.
The actor-musician said recently of his bride, "She's a really, really, really special person."

The happy couple started celebrating earlier this week along with close friends and family.
On Thursday (October 18th), they hosted a party where guests hung out around open fires and dined on fresh-made cheese, local olives and wine. The night before, the group headed to a beach for a party complete with fireworks and live music.

Congratulations to the happy couple!! :)

Discover London's Paradise In Neal's Yard!

I believe even a big city has a place that is very different from the rest of that particular city. The place that is kind of that city's paradise, fairytale land, the place to escape from traffic and noise.

So today I'm going to share a new discovery for me, and it is Neil's Yard in London, UK :)


Neal's Yard is an iconic small alley in Covent Garden between Shorts Gardens and Monmouth Street which opens into a triangular-shaped courtyard. It is named after the 17th century developer, Thomas Neale. It now contains several very colorful health food cafes and new age retailers such as Neal's Yard Remedies, Neal's Yard Dairy, World Food Cafe.


The space is also activated by local events like the 10,000 Balloon release (as Aero recreates the new "Feel the Bubbles" advert on March 26, 2009)


The nearest station to Neals Yard is Covent Garden Tube Station which is about 3 minutes to the South East.

So, if you're ever in London, take this opportunity to visit this colorful and relaxing place :)

Adele Sings For James Bond's Skyfall

And Adele is shining again, this time singing a theme song, "Skyfall", for the 23rd James Bond movie.
The song is written by Adele and Paul Epworth, who co-wrote and produced worldwide number-one single "Rolling in the Deep" from Adele's album 21, and features orchestration by J. A. C. Redford.



The song was released on Friday, October 5th 2012 as part of "Global James Bond Day", celebrating the 50th anniversary of the release of Dr. No, the first James Bond film. An initial reaction to the song points to the slow tempo at which the song walks, a characteristic unlike many of the previous Bond themes, but this may suit the upcoming film.



"I was a little hesitant at first to be involved with the theme song for Skyfall. There's a lot of instant spotlight and pressure when it comes to a Bond song. But I fell in love with the script and Paul had some great ideas for the track and it ended up being a bit of a no brainer to do it in the end," Adele said in a statement. "It was also a lot of fun writing to a brief, something I've never done which made it exciting... I’ll be back combing my hair when I'm 60 telling people I was a Bond girl back in the day I'm sure!"


The song went to number one immediately on iTunes online store, surpassing the previous UK number one, "Diamonds" by Rihanna.

New James Bond movie "Skyfall" is due in theaters on November 9th.
