when you look at this tracklisting over 2 cds, its remarkable to see just exactly how many hits kylie has had. from disco diva, to club queen, from indie princess, to showgirl...and back again. whats more, its quality pop music spanning over an amazing 3decades!!!
what sets kylie apart form the rest is the quality of the pop music. each song here has been a hit in its own right, and even non-kylie fans will know the majority of the songs which have crashed into the top 10 since 1988. from the first single proper 'i should be so lucky', to the epic murder ballad with nick cave, to her biggest hit 'cant get you out of my head', this album never ceases and there isn't a dull moment to be heard.
this is definitley the album to introduce a new audience to kylie, and for fans its a great way to chapter all the hits on one set. the only thing thats missing are a few songs that havent made it onto the album that were also hits such as 'finer feelings' and 'what kind of fool' which could easily have fitted onto disc 1. but thats the proof of the pudding...even though there are so many hit singles on here, there were too many hits to squeeze on, and even the tracks that didnt make it, if put onto a disc, would put many artists greatest hits to shame on there own. 10/10!!
'Kylie Ann Minogue' was born in 'Melbourne' S.Australia in 1968. 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......'Confide In Me' (Chart '2' 1994) - 'Where The Wild Roses Grow' wit 'Nick Cave' (Chart '11' 1995) - 'Breathe' (Chart '14' 1998) after a short spell out of the Top-Ten Smashing-Right-Back-Up-There with - 'Spinning Around' (Chart '1' 2000) - 'Kids' with 'Robbie Williams' (Chart '2' 2000) - 'Can't Get You Out Of My Head' (Chart '1' 2001) very few will have forgotten the video-image performed for that one - 'Love At First Sight (Chart '2' 2002) - 'Slow' (Chart '1' 2003) and 'I Believe In You' (Chart '2' 2004) - just some of the successes among the 18 tracks upon disc two. Overall this is a great reflection of 'Kylie's' Chart Success up to 2005, certainly one for both collectors and indeed fans of this Lady's works.
