Kylie Minogue - "Aphrodite"

This is one fucking great album!

I didn't care for her "X" album, nor "Body Language". "Aphrodite" is a full return to form! Amazing that she's almost 43 years old and can still pull this shit off!

Any other fans of the album?

I love "Get Out Of My Way". A great uplifting song.

Absolutely--"All The Lovers" is absolutely ethereal. I can't wait to see her on tour in the U.S.

Kylie just got Best Album and Best Single (All the Lovers) at the Virgin Music Awards:

Yes. Hope you enjoy the concert. The last one was awesome!

If Kylie Minogue was gay you would hate her music.

I liked the first half of the album, but the rest of the album has a bunch of stinkers. Typical of Kylie - some really great club/radio friendly songs, and then the B-side, campy, throw-away songs.

"Fever" is the only album I can think of where almost every song is good. Everything since has been 50/50.

I think she's a talentless twat!

It's a load of shit. A narcissistic act of hubris. Kylie thinks she's such a vet. She's nothing more than an ex soap actress who rode on her popularity in England and got accepted as a novelty act. Period. Michael Hutchence nearly redeemed her but she was too stupid to recognise a true Svengali.

yes we know r9. you've said the same thing before. we get it, sweetie.

I cannot wait for the concerts. She's amazing live. She radiates warmth and charm, and really puts on a great show. Unlike many of her contemporaries, she sings live at all her shows.

R9 = Mandy Smith, still pissed that SAW dumped her because she was even more talentless than Sinitta:

Stop trying to make Minogue happen. The only ones that like her are over-40 gay guys with low IQ.

It's a great record. I'm seriously considering flying to Vegas for her show.

@@@@@

Actually, she was madly in love with him but he dumped her for Helena Christensen, quite possibly because HC consented to threesomes but Kylie wouldn't.

Is "Minogue" a surname of French origin?

I've lain awake nights, wondering ... wondering.

This album is absolutely terrible. The only good song is the title track. Her album "X" was much better than this load of Stuart Price produced shit.

Hope her next album is better than this garbage.

r16, disagree with you. This is her BEST cd in years. Cupid Boy, Put Your Hands Up, Get Outta My Way, etc etc are classic Kylie.

And her concert was pretty incredible too. Since she kept songs like Confide in Me and On A Night Like This (plus featuring HOT gay dancers, and the fact she gave mad props to her backup singers).

I love her.

"Aphrodite" is definitely Kylie's best album since "Fever". "Body Language" and "X" were both mediocre at best, with only a smattering of good songs on each. "Aphrodite" is upbeat and fun. And her concert - Aphrodite - Les Folies was an amazing show. I just bought it on CD/DVD and love it!

R17 It's Irish, I think. Her grandmother is Welsh (still lives there I think) and the other side is Irish.

I don't think this album works at all, the less cohesive messy X had much better songs. Even the hardcore loons rolled their eyes at the concert.

Judging by the mediocre album and single sales this album had, I think a lot of people would disagree.

I agree completely. "X" had great songs on it (Like a Drug, Nu-Di-Ty, etc.) but "Aphrodite" only had one good song which was the title track...and you might know that was never a single. Her record company has been choosing the worst singles for her over the last few albums.

Next to Robyn's Body Talk and Britney's Femme Fatale, it's pretty third rate.

The great thing about art is that everyone can have a differing opinion on it. Obviously, the above posters did not like "Aphrodite". I beg to differ.

Aphrodite's good songs:

All the Lovers Get Outta My Way Put Your Hands Up Everything is Beautiful Aphrodite Illusion Cupid Boy Can't Beat the Feeling

That is 7/12 good songs on this album in my opinion.

X good songs:

Like a Drug In My Arms The One All I See Stars Cosmic

That is 6/14 good songs in my opinion.

Body Language good songs:

Slow Promises Red Blooded Woman Chocolate

That is 4/14 good songs in my opinion.

I guess that means "Aphrodite" wins in my book!

How dare you speak Kylie's name in the same sentence as that vapid, vile trash Britney Spears, R24. "Femme Fatale" sounds like Titney put as much effort into singing the songs as she does in going to the toilet. Any Autotuned stripper/prostitute off the street could have done just as good a job as Spears.

She needs to get new marketing people at her record company and choose better producers. How the hell could this album not be riding the dance music wave now sweeping the US pop charts?

3 words for Kylie: GERMAN BOLD ITALIC

by Anonymousreply 2801/22/2012

I don't understand why the title track wasn't released as a single. I was listening to it again today and it's great - definitley the best song on this mediocre album.

Why did you resurrect a 2 year old thread about Horse Face Cancer Tits?

by Anonymousreply 3003/15/2013

"Body Language" has crept up on me. I think I like it better than "Aphrodite" but less than "X" at this point.

In my opinion, it's "Fever"/"X"/"BL"/"Aphrodite" for her recent non-greatest hits albums.

[quote]did you resurrect a 2 year old thread about Horse Face Cancer Tits?

The better question would be why did you bother reading a thread about someone you obviously don't like?

R31 I thought "X" was a really good album that had songs that should've been singles (Like a Drug, NuDiTy). BL is probably my favorite album of hers. "Fever" was way too cheesy for my taste and "Aphrodite" was very boring except for the title track.

by Anonymousreply 3203/15/2013

She just signed with ROC NATION, so I guess you should expect lots of shit JAY-Z tracks and warmed over "hip-hop".
