A Pop Knock-Out!, 25 Oct. 2001
For anyone who has ever said that Kylie Minogue was not a credible pop-star, here's a chance to have a change of heart. Fever has got to be one of the most consistent pop recordings of the year, if not one of the best. Lead by the incredibly infectious first single, Can't Get You Out Of My Head, this is a true collection of dance-pop gems which rarely fall short of being great tunes. With clear influences from the likes of Kraftwerk, Giorgio Moroder, and Modjo, just to name a few, the album can be easily hailed as a tribute to electro-pop and disco. This is also the album Kylie wanted to make and should have made when she created Light Years. Fever is a much better record than Madonna's Music or Sophie Ellis-Bextor's Take Me Home because it displayes confidence, consistency and a completely finished piece of work. Can't Get You Out Of My Head, Fever, Fragile, Your Love and the Mark Pichotti produced Give It To Me are the album's stand-out tracks but the rest sure as hell doesn't disappoint. If you're a fan of Kylie or pure pop music, you can't go wrong with this record.
