A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this music.

Positive Messages

There's just enough "you have abused and used me" to be uncomfortable for some.

Violence

There are no violent images in these lyrics.

Sex

It's all flirtatious innuendo.

Language

Nothing offensive.

Consumerism

No commercial tie-ins, very commercial sound.

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

A few references to "getting high."

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Kylie is a total flirt. A typical lyric ("Oh baby, I'm ready...feel sexy, your body, let's take it to the floor") might be about dancing but probably isn't. Kylie's silly sense of fun makes her sexiness feel more teasy than raunchy, though. If you have any concerns, check out the lyrics at a Web site like lyrics.com.

What's the story?

Kylie Minogue, former Australian soap opera star and sometime movie actress, delivers a surprisingly delightful collection of danceable, flirty songs on BODY LANGUAGE. Kylie's best trick may be the ability to reinvent herself, this time as a dance/pop diva.She makes the best of her cutesy, little-girl voice on most of the tunes. \"Chocolate\" is creamy, luscious, syrup. There's a sort-of-credible rap attempt on \"Secret (Take You Home)\" that at least gets points for trying. But Minogue is at her strongest when gliding over producer Kurtis Mantronik's funky electronic tracks on songs like \"Still Standing\" and \"After Dark.\"

Is it any good?

There's very little of substance here, not in the performances, the message, or the music. But there are some surprisingly delightful moments anyway. Put on your dancing shoes and enjoy the ride.

  • Families can talk about whether there is anything wrong with being flirtatious, if your intentions are just meant for fun. Where is the line between having fun and misleading those you flirt with?
