  1. May well be the best album of her career.

    The results are ludicrously enjoyable, and somewhere Nile Rodgers is smiling. [13 Feb 2004, p.71]
  3. The sexy, solid set is glued together by danceable beats and Minogue's knack for picking great songs and producers.
  4. Kylie Minogue definitely sounds like she has a few more tricks stored on her hard drive than Britney or Christina.
  5. Still, even though Body Language is a bit of a misstep for Minogue, there's a sense of class to it.
  6. Long stretches prove mysteriously hookless, arid, or burdened by Minogue foregrounding a voice that withers in the glare of the spotlight.
  7. 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.

    Wow! This album proves that Kylie keeps on getting better with every album released by her so far! I never expected another album to be as Wow! This album proves that Kylie keeps on getting better with every album released by her so far! I never expected another album to be as good as Fever but it looks like Kylie has done it again! Though Body Language may not surpass Fever in many ways, it is still on par with it! A great album!!! Expand

    Those expecting Fever Part 2 will be very let down. However, if it's a sassy, classy album, full of fun and shiney noises then this is Those expecting Fever Part 2 will be very let down.

    One of her best, although she really needs to grow up and stop thinking about money. She is definetely a singles artist, and her only great One of her best, although she really needs to grow up and stop thinking about money. She is definetely a singles artist, and her only great album was Impossible Princess, since then its been all about making commercial pop/dance songs. She wrote very few of these tracks, so she can not claim credit for the experimental tracks here. It gets a 6 because of Slow - her best ever single, and a few tracks towards the end. Her best since IP (8/10) but that still isnt saying much Expand

    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! Expand
