Review – Close

Kim Wilde presents her sixth album now. Again produced by her brother Ricki. Most of the ten titles she composed herself, but with “Lucky guy” there’s also one track by Todd Rundgren there. “He is my favourite writer of all times”, says Kim Wilde. She herself composes the traditional way on guitar or piano, although she does have a good home studio with all modern techniques. And this method of composing can be heard. There’s a lot of feeling and expression in these songs, so that modern soundeffectory isn’t in the foreground.
