Review – Teases & dares

To Kim Wilde, this is the most important album in her career. For the first time she dared to move to composing songs herself. Two of the ten songs on ‘Teases & Dares’ were written by Kim herself, without any help from other people. It must have been hard to swallow for brother Ricki and her father, but they don’t have to be ashamed for the result. ‘Fit in’ and ‘Shangri-la’ are heartfelt songs with philosophically-minded lyrics. Together with the beautiful compositions of dad and Ricki this fourth product of the Wilde family is totally complete. Of course, the chart hit ‘The second time’ is also included.
