Single Review: Kylie – Kiss of Life

Kylie Ann Minogue, more commonly just known as Kylie is an Australian singer and actress. She is the highest-selling female Australian artist of all time, and has become popular internationally, having sold 80 million records worldwide. For her impact on pop music, particularly between the 80s to early 2000s, she gained the honorific title of ‘Princess of Pop’. I think the song I remember most from Kylie’s long career is her 2001 single ‘Can’t Get You Out of My Head’ which was released as part of her eighth studio album ‘Fever’. Ironically I’ve never been able to get that song out of my head. 

Anyway, as I said in the Post Malone review, I don’t usually review mainstream or successful artists because they don’t need to support but as a platform that started as a music blog it would be weird to review Kylie’s wine without first reviewing her music, so yeah click here to read my review of the wine and keep reading to read to find out what I thought of Kylie’s recent musical collaboration with Jessie Ware ‘Kiss of Life’ which was released on 12th November 2021 as part of her album ‘DISCO: Guest List Edition’ which was a re-release of her fifteenth studio album entitled ‘Disco’ which dropped on the 6th November 2020. 

‘Kiss of Life’ opens with a punchy percussive beat that blends out to a funky, synth driven melody, and the joint vocals of Kylie and Jessie blend together perfectly. Not that they remain in harmony throughout, both artists have a chance to shine, while the other backs them up with choral accompaniments and vocal fills. I liked this track a lot, it had a nice drive to it, it was flirty and fun and just had a really nice energy to it. It was surprisingly subdued all things considered though, it reached a peak of high energy and never went higher, the result was a vibrant song that felt just a little bit too restrained. It’s not a negative really but upon repeated listening, you can’t help but think it could have just loosened up a little bit.

So that’s what I thought of Kylie’s single ‘Kiss of Life’ and if you want to check that out for yourself then head on over to Spotify.
