    A suite of weak songs and half-finished ideas. [Mar 2004, p.120]
  2. There's something rote and antiseptic about the album's party mood--the electro-beats' clean squelch, the undercooked hooks, the odd primness of Kylie's singing.

    Derivative, weak, substanceless, and insipid are the words that should really describe this album....I couldn't quite believe the woman Derivative, weak, substanceless, and insipid are the words that should really describe this album....I couldn't quite believe the woman singing such naive unsophisticated lyrics was actually 36 y/o....shocking! it defintely does not deserve such praise as it has got here. Kylie's Grammy win was a joke too, with such a weak album that so obviously was rushed they had to give it to here to get America interested again. Unfortunately this stands as Minogue's worst recording....EVER! Full Review »

Many are undanceable, have little melody structure and don't have much personality. However, this did mark the moment Kylie truly became an icon. 'Slow' and 'Red Blooded Woman' proved she was a serious electronic artist. Not her greatest or most lovable, but certainly her first mature and commanding album. Full Review »
