Is every member of the Popjustice forums convinced by the new Kylie Minogue single '2 Hearts', then?
Spits Anfunny2003: "Nah, it's nothing like tremendous at all, even more so given Kylie's career/pop status. It's distinctly dull… I don't feel entertained by it at all really."
Snaps NoSignOfLife: "Heard Kylie's version several times and I still don't like any bit of it. The video's nice — visually."
Blasts Canukfuck: "She looks awesome and peforms in the video very well. I can watch the video all the way through but I couldn't care less about the song."
Snips Samuel: "I hate this with a severe passion. Why, Kylie?"
Snarls Rhythmnative: "The Scissor Sisters could have given the new Kylie album a glam feel while still feeling like a Kylie song…"
Rants Me1979: "This is probably the zillionth time Kylie Minogue, one of the biggest, campest, pop icons of our time, has tried to be 'cool ' and still it doesn't wash…"
Yells Steve: "Goodness knows what the hell they are thinking with '2 Hearts'. She will never be a cool act; surely she should be aware of this by now and just play to her strengths?!"
Blubs Toxic84: "I don't understand, I was expecting much better. Not very keen on the video either at all."
Bawls DiamondDoggieBag: "I knew the crap album name was a bad omen. It's not bad by any stretch, but Kylie just doesn't have the voice to make it really work."
Wails Varjak: "Those breathy vocals are starting to grate on me."
Well, what about elsewhere on the internet?
Says Jason D'Luv of Chart Rigger: "Am I the only one who was more dazzled by tracks leaked online earlier this year — such as 'Excuse My French'"
Says Artzboi of V.I.P. Music Only: "I was VERY Disappointed. .She has changed from the Disco Princess to a alternative Pop-Queen. The Promo-pictures hardly let us wait a sound like this… I can see this causing a gay-fans' heart attack."
Says xolondon of XO's Middle Eight: "I am not sure she even bothered to record the backing vocals! That does not sound like her on the wooh!"
And what about the Kylie forums at 'SayHey'? Here are just a few of the forum's thread titles — and remember this is a Kylie fan board..
'Kylie goes Melissa Etheridge'
'She's slapped us in the face again'
'Oh Kylie what were you thinking?'
'What the hell?'
'2 Hearts — a load of effing shite'
'Anyone prefer 'Touch Me Like That'?'
'Wrong decision and they know it'
But those are alongside the following, more positive responses…
'Anyone want a '2 Hearts' avatar?'
'Kylie: she's so brave and strong! What a leader.'
We think that officially counts as 'a mixed response'. Shall we have another look at this then?
Yep — it's definitely still one of the best pop singles of 2007. We honestly can't see what people are finding so difficult to get their heads around…
