Firstly, you will notice that for a few bitter people they will be the first to take shots at Kylie Minogue. No matter what she does it's just not good enough. Which brings me to this incredible album that is "Aphrodite" which celebrates the true essence of Kylie. Unashamed hands in the air dance pop, which revisits the 6 million selling forumla of "Fever", but with more than a nod to her Stock Aitken Waterman days. Despite the few catty comments, they pale in comparison to the dominant force of strong reviews, that clearly see this album for what it is.

Alot of thought and planning went into this track listing to make sure it wasn't the mess that was "X". Tracks were recorded with top producers RedOne, Fernando Garibay, Greg Kurstin which didn't make the cut, however tracks done with Xenomania have made the cut on the digital release ("Mighty Rivers") and Japanese CD ("Heartstrings"). Thankfully Stuart Price came on board at the right time, to choos what he, Kylie and label considered the best tracks and delivered the final result.

And they've done it!!
Here is a breakdown track by track:

All The Lovers
Weird choice for the first single, but after a few listens it's clearly a Kylie classic. Bassline is a little bit Moroder, lush chords and a thumping dance beat when the chorus hits. A No 3 hit in the UK, and Top 10 in several European countries, so it seems people get it.

Get Out Of My Way
Insanely instant unlike "All The Lovers" and the 2nd single. Key change in the chorus hits you like a steam train and you're singing along very quickly. True pop dance Kylie at her best.

Put Your Hands Up (If You Feel Love)
Another instantly infectious signature Kylie song.

Well I have to say that I used to be a massive Kylie fan back in her early PWL days - 87 to 93. When she went all indie I just lost interest - then she went all cool with De-Construction and although this was a slight improvement - was still not interesting to me.....then she reinvents herself as a sex kitten (well, she always was AND IS) and spun us all around with more dance - much better stuff and for the next few years things were ok...but over the last 5 or 6 years I have lost interest...what with 'Body Language' etc....UNTIL NOW. Aphrodite is FAB - only got my copy yesterday and I'm loving it already - my fave track has to be 'Closer' - its fantastic - very dreamy n mysterious - LOVE IT!! This is Kylie at her best again - and I am really happy for her! Hope she brings 'Closer' out as a single - though I do love 'All the lovers' - Get this now.....

Kylie returns with a very solid new album... it is a very cohesive and unified collection this time out. 2003's Body Language and 2007's X suffered a little because they strayed a little at times away from Kylie's pop/ dance strengths towards light r'n'b and both sets weren't helped by poor lead single choices - slow was never a good idea as a single but it was an interesting album track and 2 Hearts was misleading- many would have been forgiven for thinking she was going experimental with a rock/ indie sound again like she did unsuccessfully in the late nineties. Still, both albums had lots to offer her fans but Kylie is really at her best when it's pure unadulterated, feel good disco/ dance pop she delivers.

Fever was the last time Kylie got it totally right and she has done it again with Aphrodite- the album plays totally to her strenghts- its crammed full of uptempo, beat heavy dance tunes. Parlophone are already planning for an 18 month long/ 5 single promotion and you can see why... the album is crammed full of potential singles.

All the lovers is Kylie's best lead single for an album since Cant Get You Outta My Head... unlike slow or 2 hearts, it really sets the tone for the album this time, it's a good barometer for whether you'll like this album.

My personal faves so far:
Illusion is an insanely catchy tune with single written all over it, the melody is so catchy.

Aphrodite is a real feisty, "survivor" anthem penned by the hugely talented Nerina Pallot.

Mighty Rivers is a great chilled, laid back, summery track... a great bonus.

Get Outta My Way.. the next single, might take a bit to get going, but it's very catchy when it does,

Everything is Beautiful is a great mid-tempo, breezy track.

This is by far the best Kylie album in years and as good as Light Years and Fever. The Calvin Harris and Scissor Sisters co-writeen tracks are amazing and Get Outta My Way will be a fantastic second single. It is a really up tempo album and gels together much better than X. Kylie should never need a come back album but if she does, this is it. I can't wait for the supporting tour!!!

Oh boy, where's the nearest nightclub? This album is brilliant hasn't been off the music system or car cd player since it arrived on Tuesday! Won't go into details on the tracks as others before me have done that well enough. Love all the tracks, would just say buy it, would be very surprised if you didn't like it.
