Eleventh studio album by the popular Australian singer. The album reached the top spot in the UK Albums Chart and features the singles 'All the Lovers' and 'Get Outta My Way'.
Kylie Minogue. You may have heard of her. You probably have a favourite era or phase: perhaps when she was Indie Kylie and hanging with Nick Cave and the Manics; or Dance Kylie, when she minxed up in the mid-90s. Maybe you like the tinny early SAW efforts that launched her from a soap being onto a trajectory of superstardom, and breathed a sigh of relief when she rediscovered her pop mojo in the early 00s. Whatever the time or place, there's no denying that in the 23 years since I Should Be So Lucky, Kylie has briefly tickled, illuminated or completely absorbed an area of your life.
For her followers Aphrodite is the Kylie of Fever and Light Years: frothy, intensely hummable dance pop. The sort of thing she does with such effortlessness and grace. Lead single All the Lovers emits everything that X–her 'comeback' album from 2007 which spectacularly bungled its single releases, and in turn wasn't really what her fans were expecting–didn't. With most of the production handed to Stuart Price, who has provided magic in the past for Madonna and helmed the new Scissor Sisters album (among numerous other impressive credits), this is a return to form so astonishing that one's life can only be enhanced with repeated plays.
There are treats galore to be heard here: next single Get Outta My Way should destroy every dancefloor between here and the furthest reaches of the universe; the Jake Shears/Calvin Harris-penned Too Much is a rave monster; and the tech-country strut of Better Than Today throws up imagery of line-dancing cyborgs. The title-track is a military-drummed happy-clappy back, Back, BACK moment, which will be the moment of her live set when she actually explodes. Contrasting that track, the Tim Rice-Oxley-written number Everything Is Beautiful is about the mellowest thing here, but welcome after the tremendous onslaught of the opening quartet. Concluding with the cowbell-assisted frisky Daft-ness of Can't Beat the Feeling, this stunning album is an all-killer, flags-aloft amazing triumph.
Aphrodite is pure Kylie magic. Everything that made you fall in love with her all over again before is present and correct here. Not liking this would be like not being keen on breathing. All hail!

get outta my way
everything is beautiful
when kylie's much anticipated 11th studio album crashed straight to number 1 in the uk album charts, it gave her the accolade of being the only female artist to have a number 1 album in the 80s, 90's, 2000's, and 2010's. and after all these years, shes still cooking up fantastic pop music.
opening track and smash hit single all the lovers is a fantastic slab of dreamy pop and just gets better with every listen. get outta my way is classic kylie which sounds like spinning around, love at first sight and wow have been popped into a blender to create this catchy ditty.
the albums darker moment, closer, is a creepy electro dancetrack with pulsating harpsichord whilst the gorgeous everything is beautiful, penned by tim rice oxley of keane, is both stunning and sexy. the title track 'aphrodite' samples her own track 'heartbeat rock'live arrangement from the X tour, and is a fiesty anthemic pop powerhouse with a thumping military drum which would have marched it up the charts if it had been released as a single
all in all this a brilliant album for pop fans, it was packed full of potential singles, its also really cohesive and the tracks slide into each really well. an excellent addition to the kylie cannon!
The 2010 summer album is at least up to par with anything she has put out so far. Track for track, it is arguably even better than the acclaimed "Fever" and "Body Language". No duds here. The smooth opener "All The Lovers" gets out of the way for the belter "Get Outta My Way" - a joyful celebration of anything that pop music and disco means. Great hooks continue to abound, from "Put Your Hands Up" to the closer "Can't Beat the Feeling".
Highlights include the hypnotic but quite short "Closer" and "Better Than Today", co-penned by Jake Shears of Scissor Sisters. OK, don't expect any deep messages. If you want any, go to U2 or Joni Mitchell. This slant here is pure pop, guilty pleasure maybe, but reminding of good old times and at the same time very new. Songs and rhythm.
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.Read more ›
As for the CD, I have to admit that I love any song on the record - except of the track entitled 'Illusion', which is a bit boring.
Best songs? 'Get Outta My Way', 'Put Your Hands Up', 'Aphrodite', 'Better than Today' and -obviously- the new single 'All the Lovers' :)
Final comment? 5 Stars ;)

I love this album, sounds far richer on vinyl, especially new vinyl. The discs are far thicker than they used to be, but they don't have that new LP smell they had years ago,... Read morePublished 1 month ago by oscar wilde
