I've been fortunate enough to be given a copy of the full album by a friend who works for a local radio station and I have to say I stopped buying Kylie's albums after 'Fever', or at least I think it was called that.
Aphrodite is a refreshing change and takes her right back to her roots, so to speak. There is something for everyone on this album and has many writers who she has collaborated with, most notably Tim Rice and Nerina Pallot who is a singer/songwriter in her own right.
The album begins with All The Lovers, her first debut single from Aphrodite and is a great lead into the album
Get Outta My Way is very upbeat positive dance track.
Put Your Hands Up (If You Feel Love)is very bouncy and will have your toes tapping and maybe have you dancing around your living room.....or maybe not
Closer is interesting as it starts off slow and quickly builds momentum.
Everything Is Beautiful is co-written by Tim Rice and is a beautiful ballad (the term ballad should be used lightly)and is definitely slower than the previous tracks.
The title track, Aphrodite, written by Nerina Pallot, seems to have been written with Kylie in mind. You'll understand once you've listened to the lyrics. Great drum intro and disco sounding track.
Illusion has a great vocal introduction and is one of my favourite off the album and is a more traditional Kylie song of old.
Better Than Today is the second track written by Nerina Pallot and you can imagine her singing this track. Great lyrics and great music. Very catchy.
Too Much is co-written by Kylie and has undertones of the techno music. Not my favourite but it is a grower.
Cupid Boy has great atmosphere and good strong lyrics.
Looking For An Angel starts with an orchestral intro and is a very good pop song.
Can't Beat The Feeling is a great track to wrap the album up with it complimenting the open track.
Kylie's vocals have never been strong and over the years she has presented us with some fantastic pop songs. Her vocal range is limited but its still as good as it's always been and in my opinion this is just as equally as good as Impossible Princess and compliments her earlier work very well indeed.
If in doubt download the Aphrodite Mini-Mix and take a listen as it will give you a real taster to the album. Buy it - you won't regret it!
