5.0 out of 5 stars Her Finest Hour, 22 Sept. 2000
This review is from: Light Years (Audio CD)
Kylie's 7th album places her back into hot pants and back under the disco glitterball -- and the world is a better place because of it. A departure from the more alt-rock-pop sound of her last (and woefully underappreciated) cd "Impossible Princess," "Light Years" finds a more confident and more playful Kylie. It's not surprising that there is some of the best dance music heard in years on this cd: 'Disco Down'; 'Coocachoo'; 'Butterfly'; 'Light Years'; and especially 'Your Disco Needs You' (which ranks next to 'Confide in Me' and 'Better the Devil You Know' as some of her very best work) -- we've come to expect memorable songs from each Kylie album. What astonishes me here is the consistency of the album as a whole, the cleverness of the song writing (3 were co-written by Robbie Williams), and the lack of a single filler song. 'Spinning Around' was but the tip of the iceberg. Her voice has never sounded better, and her songs have never been more infectious or memorable. The album's unabashed embrace of lyrics like "Now I boogie in my dreams, to LeFreak or Dancing Queen..." sets it apart from everything else out there. All hail the princess of pop!
