    For those of you who incessantly stay on top of album releases, what do you think of the new Kylie Minogue album?


    I honestly see this album as a huge turning point for Kylie's career. I know her label is really pushing full-force for a world-wide and U.S. smash. Now I know why. The album is solid - in my opinion right up there with Fever.

    Stand out tracks:
    - Aphrodite
    - Get Outta My Way
    - Cupid Boy
    - Too Much
    - All The Lovers

    Her and Stuart Price really made something special. Lots of strong instrumental hooks (Illusion) and syncopation (Too Much). The production really is above and beyond. Stuart played with a lot of different textures and brought back the epic, 80s reverberated atmosphere (Aphrodite) and synths without making it sound at all contrived. I love the rock guitar in there too. These songs are huge.

    This feels like the second-coming of Kylie. She did it with Fever and it sounds like she's done it again. I'm definitely buying the album when it's released next Tuesday.

    Get Outta My Way is certainly the track that stands out the most out of the whole cd. its an amazing LP, a must get IMO.

    Yeah, the more I listen, the more I'm liking all of the tracks. My least favorites are Closer and Better Than Today, but even those are fun. Illusion, Looking For An Angel and Put Your Hands Up are really growing on me.

    The title track and Get Outta My Way are insane. They definitely have to be singles.

    I have been listening to this album non-stop. It definitely has the same significance as Fever did for her career, and might be able to help her crack the NA market. Get Outta My Way, Too Much, Aphrodite, and Cupid Boy are amazing, but I'm most surprised by Everything is Beautiful. I wouldn't consider it a stand-out track, but for some reason, I'm hooked!

    I love Kylie! I love All the Lovers, Get Outta My Way, Put Your Hands Up (If You Feel Love), Aphrodite, and Illusion. I don't think this album will do well in the USA, which is unfortunate. I'm definitely hooked and love the whole album! I wish her all the luck.

    I wish it was a continuous mix. My fave tracks are: Aphrodite, Everything Is Beautiful, Cupid Boy, Get Outta My Way, Put Your Hands Up. The first half is obviously the stronger part. I'll wait for the album re-release if there is one, hopefully with new tracks and a bonus DVD of music videos for every track. A boy can dream icon_biggrin.gif

    Anyone going to her US concerts? The tickets just went on sale and I got mine! I was afraid it would be sold out.
