Kylie's Synth Sensation

Kylie Minogue is set to release "Slow," the first single from her upcoming album "Body Language." The single will drop in the UK on November 3 and Kylie's ninth studio album will follow two weeks later. "Slow" is a minimalist synth ballad with the sexy songstress crooning about new-found love.

Now that Kylie has become a true global brand, the expectations for this new single are high. "Slow" has received very mixed reviews and the song has been criticized for its lack of substance. In all fairness, it needs to be noted that Kylie has never been about substance. Kylie makes pop and her past efforts prove that she knows how to craft it.

Point in case is the new video for "Slow", which is an ode to French actress and fifties sex symbol Brigitte Bardot. Minogue is surrounded by bronzed, chiseled male bodies on a sundeck that does not leave much to the imagination.

"Body Language" will hit stores in the US early 2004.

I've heard a few mixes of "Slow." I think it's hot. Very sexy. Interesting that she's channeling Bardot. So Madonna. I'm actually shocked that Madonna hasn't yet tried on that persona.

I love this song even though online reviews of it are not promising. I feel Kylie is moving forward and not getting stuck in a formula.

I don't like this song at all. It is so boring. I like the other Kylie... the one from Fever.

The new Kylie tries to hard. She should just calm down and be herself a little bit more.
