Details: NM copy of Kim Wilde’s self-titled album released in ‘82!

Description: Kim Wilde received generally positive reviews from contemporary critics. Commending the mix of up-tempo and slower tracks as well as Wilde's versatility, Australian publication The Chronicle found "Water on Glass" to be "reminiscent of some of the early 60s rock" and highlighted "Our Town" as "one of the best tracks", comparing the subject matter to Simon & Garfunkel's "My Little Town". Donald Robertson of Roadrunner magazine called the three singles "masterpieces" and concluded that the "pure pop" album was "fun to listen to when you're having fun". Eric Chappe called the album an "immediately striking disc", citing the "'60s girl group mannerisms" and "Spector-esque drum sound" of "Water on Glass" while drawing comparisons to both Dusty Springfield and Debbie Harry.”

“English singer, author and television presenter, born 18 November 1960 in Chiswick, Middlesex, England, UK. Married to actor Hal Fowler and mother of Rose Fowler. Daughter of Marty Wilde and sister of Ricky Wilde and Roxanne Wilde, and aunt of Scarlett Wilde.”
