        Someday is an inspired choice for a single release. Most consider it one of the throwaways of the album, wrongly in my opinion. I don't think it screams hit single, though; the production is too left field for radio.

        • Disappointing follow up to the very solid Fever.

          • Her second best album after "Impossible princess". This is way much better than "Fever".

              I agree.

                I think people underrate Body Language BECAUSE it followed up Fever. If I could go back and re-write history I'd have had her record another album inbetween Fever and Body Language as a transitional album, as Body Language could've easily been released in 2005 and still been a success.

                Sweet Music absolutely should've been a single.

                  I don't think it screams hit single neither but I think it would be a nice addition as a single if the others were released before that one. It somehow has the same mood as Chocolate and it kind of has this summer's ending - autumn's starting vibe so it could have been nice to have this as a late summer track. A little sweet song to end this era

                  But well I can't rewrite history

                  • It's a shame Made Of Glass was never included on the album and never received single treatment. Love this song

                      Not her best album but it was really a trend for female UK popstars back then, everybody wanted to follow that 80's eletro-pop sound. "Promises", "Secret (Take You Home" and "Sweet Music" are my favorite.

                        Nice to see some love for the criminally underrated Promises! The production on that song is excellent; sonically I think it's one of the album's highlights too.

                          My favorite album of hers. It still sounds fresh

                              The instrumental is very crunchy and the song sounds very fresh, definitely the best of the album

                                I stay mad that this album was so overlooked and didn't catch either the public's attention or get the critical appraisal that it truly deserves.

                                      Her own fault for not touring it.

                                      It’s probsbly my 2nd or 3rd favourite Kylie album but as brilliant an album as it is, it doesn’t contain many songs that would have worked as singles. She did well to pull off Slow and make that a #1 single in the UK imo - though I still think the video doesn’t work for the song at all.

                                      • I can't imagine any other video for Slow. It's interesting that you think it doesn't work for the song as I don't think that's a popular opinion. How do you envisage the video?

                                          I find it a very dark song, so expected something more in line with the single artwork:



                                          The whole lounging around in the sun is the exact opposite of what I expected and what I see when the song comes on.

                                          • Ordered my Japan edition yesterday for 6€

                                            Guess it’s worth it, the 2 bonus tracks are outstanding. This album is so so good.


                                            Are there other Japan versions of her albums that are worth it?

                                            • Received my Japan copy and the album is so much better now. It's already been one of my favorite Kylie records (IF not my favorite) but these 2 additional songs really add more beauty to this record.

                                              Incredible album that truly deserved better. Slow is timeless.

                                                well the JP reissue (2012) of Let's get to it has like 7 extra songs, 3 of them are diff from other releases I think: Finer Feelings Brothers in Rhythm 12", GYALMT extended, and If you were with me now extended oh and they included in the extras Say the word I'll be there, and needless to say the audio quality is great

                                                  I found it on Amazon. A used cd but in a very good condition!
