Top Customer Reviews
1. Better The Devil You Know 10/10
What a way to start the album with this true gem of a classic, showing a transition from girl next door to sexy siren with this dancefloor anthem that may have been a risk but pulled off to perfection.
2. The Locomotion 10/10
A fun cover that was originally by Little Eva and yet Kylie made this her own, another fun upbeat track that will get you up on your feet and dance, maybe a bit dated now but that still doesn’t stop this song from being great. Released as her debut single in Australia hitting #1 over there and her third hit over here reaching #2 in the UK charts, as well as being a massive hit in the US charts peaking at #3 over there, making this yet another memorable track for the princess of pop.
3. I Should Be So Lucky 10/10
The track that really started it all, a simple yet effective and catchy number that made me fall in love with her to begin with, everyone should know this by now, topping the UK charts for a massive 5 weeks and topped the charts in Australia, Germany, Ireland and Switzerland, its pure cheesy pop at its finest.
4. Step Back In Time 10/10
Kylie goes disco and again a different sound for her. With gloriously cheesy lyrics and a funky sound that makes this an instant pop gem.

OK, a few 'Greatest Hits' packages have been released during Kylie's time as Princess Of Pop, but they have pretty much been about her old record labels cashing in on her renewed success. This CD, on the other hand, charts her music career right from the beginning to the present, and not only is it endorsed by Ms Minogue but it also features a couple of new tracks (including the spellbinding "I Believe In You").
This is truly what pop music is about. The oldest stuff from the PWL days is cheesy, melodic, simple and just great fun ('Hand On Your Heart' is post-Abba singalong cheese at its best), though if you want depth and enlightenment this may not be your cup of tea. As the 90s dawned and she began to assert a more mature image her music was allowed to evolve with her (enter "Better The Devil You Know", one of the high points in the history of pop), and she even managed to incorporate a rap on 'Shocked' :-).
Eventually the constraints of PWL became too much, and off to indie label DeConstruction she went. Though commercial success somewhat eluded her during this phase, the actual records themselves were brilliant, particularly the hypnotic 'Confide In Me' and the trancy 'Breathe' (and it should be noted that many of the other tracks from her two DeConstruction albums are excellent too, even though they haven't made it on to this compilation - worth looking into...).
But of course, the Kylie we know and love today rediscovered her pop roots after her relationship with DeConstruction came to an end. Parlophone signed her, they had a mutual vision of where she should go, and voila, she was back at the top of the charts (with the help of a pair of gold hotpants).Read more ›
She first came to our notice as a fresh-faced teen in the Australian-Soap 'Neighbours' during the 80's before she broke onto
the music-scene in 1988 fast becoming an International Recording Artist, her first hit of course was 'I Should Be So Lucky'
which became the first of her seven Chart-Toppers.
Things weren't always great for 'Kylie' in May 2005 she was diagnosed with Breast-Cancer which lead to her cancelling the
remainder of her - 'Showgirl / Greatest - Hits Tour'
Because she raised awareness of her condition she did get much acclaim, thankfully she got through that period and after a
complete break picked up where she had left off in terms of Chart-Success.
This 2-CD Collection which covers much of her Chart-Success between 1988 and early 2005
Upon the first disc other than the track already mentioned we find tracks such as - 'I've Got To Be Certain' (Chart '2' 1988) -
'Especially For You' sung with 'Jason Donovan' (Chart '1' also 88') which was followed by 'Hand On Your Heart' (Chart '1' 1989)
'Tears On My Pillow' (Chart '1' 1990) and 'Give Me A Just Little More Time' (Chart '2' 1992)....these among 15 tracks to be found
upon disc one........and on disc two......Read more ›
