Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

Thirteen is considered an unlucky number by some, but Light Years is the album that marked the miniscule Miss Minogue's 13th year on the pop scene and with it a remarkable return to form. The pint-sized girl-next-door had been delivering teen-pop to an insatiable public year after year with ever diminishing success. Her previous album Kylie Minogue was both a critical and commercial failure despite collaborations with some of music's most eminent and respected songwriters and producers. It certainly looked like Kylie's chart days were numbered. Light Years is Kylie's somewhat unexpected return to form as she goes back to her roots in full-on-feather-boa-disco-diva mode (à la "Step Back In Time") on tracks like "So Now Goodbye" and "Under the Influence of Love". This is an album brimming with songs that wouldn't sound entirely out of place on a Donna Summer album. There's plenty to boogie down to and if you liked the number one single "Spinning Around" you won't be disappointed. The Village People style "Your Disco Needs You" will have you stomping around the lounge with your mates in no time, while the easy-listening style "Loveboat" is the perfect soundtrack to a camp cocktail party. This is most certainly her best effort since 1990's Rhythm of Love and just goes to show that she's still got it. --Ronita Dutta

5.0 out of 5 stars The Princess of Pop is back! 26 Feb 2001
Format:Audio CD
After far too long Kylie Minogue has finally made her return to pop music. And what a return this is. This album is pop music at its most perfect. Catchy and infectious tunes delivered by every gay man's favourite pop star. Britney and Madonna, it's time to step aside now and let the true queen of the charts show you how it's done:
1)SPINNING AROUND The single that signaled her return, I'm sure all of you will know this uplifting tune, so I don't think I need to say anything about it.
2)ON A NIGHT LIKE THIS Another single, possibly not one of the exceptional tracks on the album, but nevertheless extremely catchy and easy to dance to.
3)SO NOW GOODBYE In this song Kylie tells her boyfriend that it's over and she's leaving him, and I can't help but love all songs like this. You go girl!
4)DISCO DOWN VERY catchy song. Another dancey one, this time with Kylie starting to use more of her vocal range.
5)LOVEBOAT The first of a few bilingual songs, this song is basically an invite to her boat. I'm not gonna say no. Very happy song, nice catchy tune. Love it.
6)KOOCACHOO The beginning of this is reminiscent of Cher's "The Beat Goes On", but it quickly moves away from that. A complimentary song about the "dream boy of my bedroom poster", a sweet song with a happy tune you can't help but like.
7)YOUR DISCO NEEDS YOU An epic song if ever there was one, this song has it all: a good beat, fabulous lyrics in two languages, strings and even a soaring operatic voice near the end. A true classic if ever there was one, this is one of the highlights of the album.
8)PLEASE STAY Yet another single, this one has lots of guitar in it, and an almost Latino sound sometimes, but is still very dance-orientated.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kylie's greatest triumph to date! 29 Mar 2002
Format:Audio CD
We all know the song "Can't Get Your Out Of My Head", and the album "Fever". But do we appreciate the album that made Kylie the fresh faced, pop diva that she is today? No, I didn't think so. I know this review is a little late since "Light Years" was released well over a year ago, but to all that are thinking of buying the greatest pop album ever you need to forget "Fever" and buy "Light Years". Yeah, "Fever" is huge but the tracks all sound alike (don't get me wrong it's a fabulous album) but with "Light Years" you get a mix of her vocal heights and you experience what made Kylie the Queen of Pop. The smash hits alone - "Spinning Around", "On A Night Like This", "Please Stay", "Butterfly" and the classic funk pop tune "Your Disco Needs You" - make this album worth it. And plus those tracks she composed some awesome tunes such as "Koocachoo", "I'm So High", "Light Years" and the unforgetable duet with the Prince of Pop, Robbie Williams - "Kids". Also rewind the beginning of "Spinning Around" and there is a wonderful song called "Password" hidden behind it. Combine all these masterpieces with the rest of the fantastic songs on the cd and you get what is called the greatest album ever produced. So put this in your boom box, turn it full blast, and prepare to travel light years on KM air!

2.0 out of 5 stars The "bonus" cd needed more planning... 16 Mar 2001
Format:Audio CD
If you are a Kylie fan and already have this album, PLEASE dont be fooled in thinking that you need this. YOU DONT!! Dont get me wrong, the original Light Years is fantastic , without a single flaw on the album, i'm solely basing this review on the whole "bonus" package. The extra cd consists of a hurry of remixes, and half of them have already been released on the single/chart releases of the songs (eg. spinning around, please stay,on a night like this). So the only reasons left of why you would possibly buy this album is perhaps the Sandstorm Dub of Butterfly (which is quite good, but has hardly any vocals on), or the Casino mix of Your Disco Needs You (which is the reason i upped my review a star!!) - what ever happened to remixes of Disco Down? or the d bop voyager mix of Light Years??... Overall, this cd could have been better thought out, but hey, dont let me discourage any of you from buying the original Light Years - its a classic- but this extra cd certainly isnt!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Other Queen of Pop is Back! 26 Sep 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
OK, so let's get the inevitable comments out of the way first. Both Madonna and Kylie have released their first studio albums for two and three years (respectively) within seven days of each other. Madonna's "Music" (the track) has been said to be a retrospective look back at "Into the Groove"; Kylie's dropped the 'grunge' and gone back to her pop roots. In other words, maybe they are both taking a backwards look over their shoulders?
But that's enough! The two should never be compared anyway: what true similarities are there between them anyway?
With "Light Years", Kylie takes an unashamed look at the pop and disco styles of the 70s and 80s and it's FANTASTIC! "Disco Down", "Loveboat" and "Koocachoo" will get in your brain and will stay lodged there for days, in the most pleasant of ways, of course. Her thin voice is still thin, but is perfectly suited to the material, and she sounds as confident on this entire album as she did on "Confide in Me" (possibly her finest moment ever?). In fact, it is the very thinness of her voice that works so very perfectly on the sensitive ballad "Bittersweet Goodbye".
Miss Minogue has acknowledged on many occasions the regard she has for her gay fans- numerous appearances at G.A.Y. and at Gay Pride and Mardi Gras- and this album is no exception. There is a slice of pure camp excess on "Your Disco Needs You", with clear nods to "I Lost My Heart to a Starship Trooper" and The Village People. And, when the music breaks and Kylie proclaims, "...La disco a besoin de vous", no one but the most cynical wallflower could fail to feel the rush of sheer fun that results. But this is an album for everyone, straight or gay.
