MUSIC REVIEW: Kylie Minogue is ruthless with "Sexy Love"

Mar 23, 2014 at 11:12 a.m. ET

With all the skin I see on MTV, I almost forget that it's a music channel. But face it, guys, sex sells. Though Miley Cyrus may have figured that out, veterans like Kylie Minogue have been knowing how it's done.

Kylie Minogue is back. And she's still as wild.

The "Can't Get You Out of My Head" singer has a succulent new album, dripping with sex and baked in charm. Kiss Me Once proves that this experienced singer is also an experienced lover, as it is heavy with the imagery and seductive with its trajectory.

Have you SEEN her new video? You'll never see exercising the same again >>

My prized track on the album is the disco-pop single "Sexy Love." It's got the youthful appeal of an Abercrombie & Fitch store track list but the raunchiness of a dark corner in an upscale bar.

Want to see if you reacted the same to "Sexercise" as everyone else? >>

But am I the only one that's not as impressed and more concerned? This Aussie is slaying the competition in my eyes when it comes to her younger predecessors, but the album boasts lots of sex, and that can't be all this once-actress has to offer, can it?

Maybe I'm thinking too hard. Maybe she's just method-singing and taking her theme to the extreme.

Rather than overanalyzing it and getting lost in speculation, I would much prefer losing myself in "Sexy Love" (literally, too). Need a pregaming track for the next ladies' night? Want a way to get fired up before you go on the prowl? This is the song you need in your life.

She's got a lethal mix here. She entices with an unexpected innocence but knows the game she's playing. She divulges the conflicting emotions that you could relate to if you've ever had a heated dance session with a lustful partner.

I can appreciate Minogue's style because she's got the appeal of a Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry, or Cassie; yet, her art of seduction is not uncomfortably raunchy. She's not over the top. Well, besides the fact her entire album is devoted to sex, ha!

What do you think, readers? Like it, love it or entirely disappointed by it? Let me know what you think below.
