CD Review: Kim Wilde - Come out and play(2010)

KIM WILDE - COME OUT AND PLAY

    genre: Pop

    label: Columbia

    release date: Aug-26-2010

  No , Kim Wilde probably has nothing to do with dark electronic music.


However she is one  of the most inspiring and greatest pop artists in the global music scene. That's because she was one of the protagonists of  the Eighties pop scene.Everybody knows Kim and most people appreciate her work and love her music. Kim is now in the 50th year of her life and she is still very much the same woman we all knew 30 years ago..Ok , she may be older however she is still the beatiful pop star and the beloved woman she once was. 'Come out play' is her eleventh album and is probably quite good . I guess for most of you that won't be so simple and you are right. Kim was a 20 years old pop legend 30 years ago.However we are not in 1980 anymore,the date is 2010 and a lot of time has passed since then. I bet you expected to listen to something like 'Keep Hanging on' or 'Cambodia' or many other successes of Kim. But as she have said: 

 'It's an album that reminds you of the Eighties, but still sounds very 21st century'

My answer among many other ones is Indeed. It really sounds like the 21st century kind of pop album. Although it's really different.That's also the reason I wrote this review. After all she is Kim Wilde and 'Come out and play' deserves to be respected like all of  her amazing work. So let's go deeper in the album . One of the songs you'll notice among the thirteen is 'Love conquers all'' featuring Nik Kershaw. This one maintains the synth pop sound we used to listen in Kim's songs.It's a really soft and nice song . 'Get out' , 'Hey you' are two of the album's best ones.I can't say if they'll become hits , however they are still very passionate and tough songs.If you listen to them you may recall some of Kim's older work . Lovely voice as always . 'Lights down low' is what I love in this album! So catchy , with so great music following the vocals. Now 'I want what I want', 'Real life' are beyond any doubt the classic good mood pop music of Kim Wilde. I also believe they sound like rock with a new wave sound, just like the first single 'Lights down low' and the great forcefully punkish one, 'My wish is your command'.

Besides the fact that Kim is 50 years old she managed to combine her eighties style with 2010's music scene making something really expressive and brilliant. That brilliance is seen in songs like ''King of the world'' , ''Suicide'' and of course ''This paranoia''.

If you wanna listen to a more sensitive , eighties like song you should try 'Jessica' , 'Loving you more' & last but surely not least 'Greatest Journey' (Duett With  Glenn Gregory).

People should understand that artists in the level of Kim Wilde sometimes can't be any better than they were . Kim reached the top when she was 20 years old . Now she gives us a new album with lots of love and proper music inside . The least we can do is appreciate the latest work of one of the greatest and most loved artists ever. The album is really fantastic and it's also different . I love the this album as I loved lots of others by Kim Wilde.

Kim said one simple thing people : COME OUT AND PLAY!!

[Is it just me or the album's title describes perfectly what's inside?]
