  1. I love Kylie but this is horrific.

  2. I as looking forward to this album but oh dear.

    She should have left "All the Lovers" alone. It's a great song and this version has ruined it.

    I've been waiting for the ballad version of "I believe in you" for years but this is not the good version of it. DISAPPOINTING.

    I think "Come into my World" was the best of a bad bunch on this sample.

    I have to give the producer credit for turning "Locomotion" from a terrible song into a far, far worse song. AWFUL. AWFUL. AWFUL.

    Kylie should have learned from Kate Bush's terrible attempt to re-record her classics. EPIC FAIL.

    From the incredible pop album "Aphrodite" to this abysmal mess. How the mighty have fallen......

  3. Probably wonderful for hardcore Kylie fans but probably not going to be a big hit with others. I love Kylie, but IMO none of these songs inspire me to buy this album. These are awesome pop hits, but not sure if they warrant this kind of treatment. Would make a cool Christmas gift!

  5. As a big Kylie fan, I cannot wait for this. Finer Feelings is beautiful,the funky re-worked Locomotion and the heartbreaking rendition of Hand on Your Heart and when you actually listen to its lyrics, 'Better the Devil You Know' is one of the most tragic love songs; simply beautiful!

  6. These teasers really aren't well chosen at all, but the songs in their entireties are actually mostly beautiful new reinventions of great songs in the first place. I've heard them and was surprised how much I liked them (I didn't expect to) but this sampler certainly doesn't do them justice.

  7. I think the critics here are those who don't venture outside of the dance realm very often.

  8. EXCELLENT! Great sound to relax to. Other reviews that have been posted have no clue about other styles of music. This truly represents Orchestra style. Way to to Kyle!

  9. I am actually very intrigued by some of these! I'm looking forward to hearing this. I may not buy every single song, but I'm sure a few will end up on my playlist this fall.

  10. This is a waste of an album and time. The time she spent recording this mess she could have spent recording an all new album with new songs. I wish she'd do more songs like she did between 2003 and 2007.

  11. As a "Greatest Hits" of alternative instrumentation it's fairly benign, it's stripped down , but to actually take issues with that avenue shows how little taste you have

  12. Honestly, this sort of album should be reserved for those who can really sing. Mariah Carey, Christina Aguilera etc. Someone like Kylie should stick to dance and electronica where the vocals aren't required to carry the whole song.

  13. The new arrangements sound breathtaking! Can't wait to hear the full album. It's no different than having new versions played on tour and the originals are still there if you don't care for the new versions. Between this and tori amos' gold dust ill be in orchestral heaven.

  14. I'm open-minded! But, I don't like it. :(
