Review – Catch as catch can

Kim Wilde had her birthday just a few days ago: on November 18, she was 23 years young. In a few days, on December 4th, the attractive American will be presenting herself at the CCH, one of only three live acts in Germany. Nothing can go wrong with this gig, Kim’s new album ‘Catch’, unreservedly follows the first two. Her unmistakable pop (actually the style of father and brother who compose and manage almost everything) is getting more perfect every time. The singles ‘Love Blonde’ and ‘Dancing In The Dark’ are once again outstanding. The former is skilfully and ironically directed against the stupid but impossible to prejudice, pretty blondes had to be stupid by nature. The latter is, for once, not from the family clan, but from Nick Chinn and Paul Gurvitz and was mixed by Nile Rodgers, noble radio from the group Chic, who already gave David Bowie’s ‘Let’s Dance’ the right drive. Precious metal is preprogrammed for Kim Wilde anyway, rightly here!
