It is almost 20 years since Kylie presented what is likely referred to as her most diverse and different album to date. It is also the album Kylie needed to make career and personally.
It was the album where Kylie got to show of her writing skills, she sought further credibility within the music industry which I believe she successfully did.
While it is seen as her least successful album commercially, it is loved in large by her fans.

Which single do you like the most and like in the previous polls please feel free to comment.

Yes, i forgot myself and by-passed KM94.
I will do that one next week.

Breathe is a runaway vote in this album for myself. One of Kylie's most under-rated singles ever but one of my ultimate Kylie singles.
I also have great affection for Some Kind Of Bliss too and listen to it alot.
Did It Again, (excellent video) but as a song i rarely listen to it.

Breathe truly deserved to be a smash hit and it has aged brilliantly and it still sounds fresh today.

It's such a shame all these singles didn't do better. At the time I remember breathe was so hard to get on cd here in Ireland especially where I live in the west, luckily a friend of mine was going to Dublin and they got it for me and I remember hating the cover sleeve when it came!!! but adored the song

I am not welcoming the close race between the sublime Breathe and Did It Again.
I would have preferred Some Kind Of Bliss to have the votes of Did It Again.

For next week i will go back a step and do the poll for the KM94 album.
I also thought i may do a poll on either best single from Dannii's Love and Kisses album or...
A poll on the best Dannii album, which would you guys prefer?

I love 'Did It Again' and 'Breathe'. As singles, I think 'Did It Again' is the catchier of the two. Not saying it's the better song. Just the better single choice.

'Some Kind Of Bliss' is one of my least favourite Kylie singles. It sounds too much like the Manic Street Preachers for my tastes. To me, they were a bit of a dad band.

True, although i would like too!
I do understand the variation of opinions on Some Kind Of Bliss.
I think the big problem when it was released was it was so different and possibly too different for Kylie and her fans.
That said, it was instant with me, i knew from the reports, Kylie was going to do something totally different and it didn't disappoint.

I have always liked some kind of bliss but I also liked the manic st preachers around that time and the link in sound was obvious. It was def s grower of a song and at the time I was so disappointed with its chart position as it was her first to miss the top 20, in the first midweeks it was top 20 that week but it slipped through the week.

^^ I remember being devestated at the time that SKOB missed the Top 20 and ended her run of consecutive Top 20s, now I’m happy if she manages the Top 100 laugh.gif

I feel the same and when dancing went top 40 it felt like I used to feel when Kylie got a number 1 single.

Dancing going Top 40 felt like a huge achievement.
I guess the fact it had almost made the Top 40 on 2 prior occasions but failed made it even better on the week it managed it.

Ya there was a few times I thought it would never happen for dancing. All three singles from IP are the only singles from Kylie that I don't know where they charted or if they did here in Ireland. from what I know Ireland only did a top 50 at the time and I think all 3 failed to chart. On the off chance I contacted Irish charts.ie a long time ago to see if they had a record but they never replied which is what I thought would happen.

‘Dancing’ going Top 40 was a major achievement - I really didn’t think it was going to happen after it had spent weeks going up and down. Love that BMG got behind her making the Top 40 too and released the 99p EP to help!
