As of 2012, when The Best of Kylie Minogue was released, she was still going strong. This new set collects a fair amount of songs, 21 total, from all periods of her career, mixing them together with no regard from time-frame or style. It's an interesting choice that doesn't always work (her iffy cover of Kool and the Gang's "Celebration" makes no sense next to her sultry electro-pop jam "Slow" for example), but at the very least, it shows just how powerful a singer she's been since the beginning, and if you've followed her all along, it's nice to hear 1990's "Better the Devil You Know" next to 2010's "All the Lovers" and realize that Kylie has never been less than a perfect pop star.
The Kylie experience has become so all-encompassing it's hard to believe that 2015's Kylie Christmas is her first holiday album. She and her team do it right, providing a varied and diverse selection of tracks and moods…
This musical release from dance music diva Kylie Minogue captures a live performance by the singer, recorded in London in honor of her Aphrodite Les Folies tour. Some of the songs featured in the concert include "Spinning Around," "Can t Get You Out Of My Head," "All The Lovers," and more.
While the production values on Kylie's debut are dated at best and the tunes are nothing but standard late-'80s Stock-Aitken-Waterman bubblegum, there are some rather endearing qualities to it. Firstly, she shows a lot more personality than the other Stock, et al. frontperson, Rick Astley. Secondly, her cuteness makes these rather vapid tracks bearable. Her cover of "The Loco-Motion" made only small waves in the U.S., but this was the album that launched her career as both pop star and icon in Europe.
