Review - Love is

Lolirockeuse of the eighties ('Kids in America' dates from January 1981), Kim Wilde attacks the last straight line to the year 2000 with equal freshness. And freshness, at the dawn of summer, this is exactly what is appropriate.
In discotheques, the nights without Kim Wilde risk being counted on the fingers of the hand. Because most of the tracks on this new album are danceable: from 'Love is' to 'Million miles away' (a taste of new order in the intro) to 'I believe in you' (we too Kim) .
'Love is' is obviously a family album. Brother Ricki co-authored a few titles and Roxanne, the 12-year-old sister, sings backing vocals. With appreciable external reinforcements: Rick Nowels (Belinda Carlisle) for three titles; Davey Johnstone and Paul Buckmaster music and arrangements side.
