Kylie Minogue – Aphrodite

Exercise in euphoric clubland dreaming

She’s been through hell in recent years, but our Kylie’s back on the scene and she’s shinier than ever. Her latest musical endeavour reinstates the diminutive Aussie as the reigning princess of pop and may just make you fall in love with her all over again.

‘Aphrodite’ is a spangly gay disco set of unashamedly poptastic dancefloor fillers, and current single ‘All The Lovers’ encapsulates the pure essence of Kylie: sexed-up vocals, delicate instrumentation and, ofcourse, that climactic, breathtaking chorus.

Although the album is an exercise in euphoric clubland dreaming, tracks ‘Closer’ and ‘Everything Is Beautiful’ remind us there is perhaps a more sincere side to Kylie that is often overlooked.
