“X” is one of my favourite Kylie albums and “Like a Drug” is one of my favourite songs so I couldn’t resist playing with it.
X is the tenth studio album by Australian recording artist Kylie Minogue, released on 21 November 2007 by Parlophone. X has received positive reviews from music commentators. Many critics had commended the production, Minogue’s innovative writing and many believed that it was a true welcome back to the pop scene. However, upon release, some critics were divided whether the album was a ‘comeback’ album and some noted the fillers and theme inconsistency. Commercially, X was a success. In Minogue’s native Australia, the album debuted at number one on the Australian Albums Chart, becoming her first number once since her 2003 record Body Language and was certified Platinum by the Australian Recording Industry Association. In the United Kingdom, the album peaked at number four, being held off by artists Westlife, Shayne Ward (which was the highest debuting album that week) and Leona Lewis. It gained a higher position than her last record and was certified Platinum by the British Phonographic Industry. The album achieved strong charting internationally, peaking inside the top twenty in countries including Austria, Germany, Ireland, Taiwan and France. X became her lowest selling studio album in the United States, peaking at a lowest 139 on the Billboard 200
