Top 10 Best Kylie Minogue Albums

The Top Ten
1 Fever

I am a HUGE Kylie fan, and I would give anything to meet her. Kylie Minogue's Fever album is 100% amazing! It is simply the best of her albums. It reached number 1 in loads of countries! Fragile, Love Affair, and Your Love are the best songs on there. They are brilliant, and I can't get enough of them. All of her songs are amazing! I love her so much!

Her best album by far! Can't Get You Out of My Head, Come into My World, Love at First Sight, In Your Eyes, Fever... Wow, that's amazing!

I love Kylie. Fever is definitely her strongest album, no skips. Aphrodite is a close second.

2 Impossible Princess

Kylie's most underrated album. It has often been cited as copying Madonna's "Ray Of Light," but Kylie's album was released four months prior to Madonna's. Although they are both excellent albums, Kylie's is the best!

"Too Far" is an amazing, experimental, solely Kylie-penned trip-hop track that should have been released as a single. The whole album is built of risky masterpieces, especially: "Some Kind Of Bliss," "Breathe," "Limbo," "Dreams," and "Too Far!"

Also, it is the only time that Madonna has taken the light, happy side while Kylie has gone for a more dark, mysterious image. It is usually the other way around.

3 Aphrodite

Although I enjoy her music, "Aphrodite" is the first Kylie Minogue album I've actually purchased. I put the CD on and listened to "All The Lovers," the lead single, the catchy song that made me buy the album. Once the song finished, I started to regret buying it because I thought the good would end there. But it did not! The rest of the album brought out masterpieces like "Aphrodite," "Looking For An Angel," and "Get Outta My Way."

Quite possibly the best-ever pure pop album made to date (2016). All The Lovers sets the tone and pace, with stunning melodies and gorgeous synth programming. The high vocal harmonies in the chorus just add the icing on the cake. From there, the high quality never ends, and there are zero fillers in sight. An amazing achievement by all involved in creating this gem!

4 Light Years

Light Years, X, and Aphrodite are all pretty close for me, but I will pick Light Years because she truly went out on a limb with this one. She experimented with many different styles, both retro and modern, and brought herself into the new century with a bang. "Light Years" is actually also my favorite song.

It makes me want to dance. So Now Goodbye is a really good song. When I listen to this album, I feel like I am on a cruise. When you listen to it with your earphones, it's so magical.

Light Years is the best Kylie album ever. When Kylie came back in 2000, she hit it with this album. Kylie is cool! Especially in this way! Go on, Kylie!

5 Body Language

Hands down, "Body Language" is a masterpiece! I know it was not as successful as its predecessor, but this album is way more provocative than "Fever." That's a masterpiece on its own, but it kinda revolves around the same genre (that's not a bad thing, though, because she mastered it perfectly), while "Body Language" brings an R&B-ish type of sound. It is such a unique album in her entire catalog. And let's not forget it features "Slow," one of the best songs she's ever recorded. "Red Blooded Woman," "Chocolate," "Secret (Take You Home)," "Sweet Music," and "Still Standing" are all gold. I just wish we got more singles.

Even the unreleased tracks from this session are amazing, not to mention the B-sides. "City Games" should've made it on the album, though, and even be released as a single. It is that good! "Cruise Control" is another hidden treasure (for the fans outside the USA) that should've been featured on the standard edition of "Body Language."

Anyways, this album is a work of art, and it should be at least in the top 5!

6 X

"X" is totally Kylie Minogue's best album! It has a tone throughout, and I like that tone, and I think a lot of people would too. It is one of those albums that you have to listen to the whole thing to understand. "X" is definitely not a singles album, but I like that. I like the depth. And I think it is an album that speaks as a whole, and very few albums do that. "Aphrodite" is good, but not as a whole album. My favorite song from "X" is "The One."

As someone already mentioned, this album is painfully underrated. It can't be denied that "X" is not her most cohesive album, but this doesn't overshadow the highlights. There are some ups and downs, but no filler can take away the greatness of brilliant tracks like "Speakerphone" (this song is a fan favorite for a reason and, arguably, it can be labeled as one of the best tunes off the entire album), "Like a Drug," "Nu-di-ty," "Wow," and "In My Arms." I adore "2 Hearts," but this should've been the first single. Let's not forget the golden bonus tracks too. I'm, of course, talking about "Cherry Bomb" and "Carried Away," among others.

Now, it's difficult for me to point out the downs of this album because I honestly love all the tracks. Sure, some of them are growers, and I didn't like them at first, but now I've come to constantly replay them.

On this album, Kylie explores many different directions. The opener, "2 Hearts," shows us a playful and sassy Kylie, while on "Cosmic" she gets personal. It's an interesting journey. The reason why this album is so underrated (even among her core fanbase) is that we got to hear some outtakes and realized that the early concept of this album was probably not what it eventually ended up being. Songs like "Fall For You" or "Lose Control" (that kind of share the same vibe with "Like a Drug," "Nu-di-ty," "Wow," "Speakerphone," "Heart Beat Rock," or "In My Arms") give us an idea of what this album could've been.

Anyways, "X" is amazing as it is, and it deserves more recognition.

7 Kylie Minogue

Excuse me, why is this masterpiece so low on this list? If anything, this flawless album should be at number 2, behind "Impossible Princess." I will never understand why Kylie's best works are so underrated. This album is perfect from the first song to the last one. Kylie began exploring new horizons and experimenting with her music with "Let's Get To It" - an amazing album, by the way, that should also be higher on this list - but with "Kylie Minogue" she managed to give us a perfectly cohesive album. "Confide In Me" is a masterpiece on its own. "Put Yourself In My Place" is an outta this world song. And so on, every single song from this album is just beyond amazing. Justice for this gorgeous album!

8 Kiss Me Once

Sure, "Kiss Me Once" may not be her best album (though I strongly believe it is actually one of her best), but it is not one of her worst either, and that's for sure. I'm aware of the fact that after "Aphrodite" it was a challenge for Kylie to come up with something better than her eleventh studio album, which set the bar really high. But that was not impossible - after all, we're talking about Kylie, a highly talented and creative person. I was not disappointed at all. On the contrary, I was delighted. The only problem with this album was the single choices (that's not a new problem though, let's just remember the singles we got off "X").

"Into the Blue" was the perfect lead single, but it should've been followed up by "Million Miles" as the second single and then "If Only" as the third single. Surely, I could go on because almost all of the songs were single material. Yet, we only got two singles, out of which one is not the strongest track on the album, and a promotional one that, ironically, is far better than the second single.

The only song that kind of ruins the album's atmosphere is "Beautiful." I don't understand how we got this instead of "Waiting 4 the Sun." Seriously, "Beautiful" may be the weakest filler we got from Kylie in years. But overall, this album is amazing, and I personally label it as one of her best!

9 Disco

The more I listen to Disco, the more I like it. Disco is the third Kylie album where she has been totally involved in writing all the tracks.

10 Golden

Great cohesive album that blends her sounds. This feels like a concept album, which is great for road trips and creating nostalgia. Her voice sounds relaxed and pleasant. She makes the most of what she's got, and she really is into the music as an artist. Bonus tracks are also nice to add to the end of this overall journey.

Just released on the 6th of April and the first time in many years Kylie has a number 1 album in her homeland Australia and the UK. This album is awesome. Not a filler in most of the album's songs. Any could easily be a single. Kylie has co-written all the songs on this album, making it the first since Impossible Princess in 1997/98.

The Contenders
11 Let's Get to It

This album is one of the most - if not the most - underrated albums in Kylie's entire discography. But "Let's Get To It" is, in fact, way better quality-wise than most people seem to believe. This album marks a change in Kylie's then musical style. She approached a more mature and sophisticated sound. From now on, her music starts to get better and better with every album. It is so sad that this amazing collection of way above average songs underperformed. It is also unbelievable how even the singles underperformed too. Sad, truly sad.

Sure, there are some fillers on this album, but they're not bad at all. The only two problems I have with this album are: one, the remixed and far superior version of "Finer Feelings" (I'm talking about the Brothers in Rhythm mix that got released as a single) was not featured on the album, and two, "I Guess I Like It Like That" was not released as a single. This one is still a mystery to me. This song is arguably the best song on the entire record. But these two things don't make it less of a good album. Actually, the bonus tracks featured on the reissues make it even better. "Closer (Pleasure Mix)" is one of the best songs she recorded during the early '90s, and "Do You Dare?" is just amazing.

12 Rhythm of Love
13 The Abbey Road Sessions

More contemporary arrangements of past hits, and the unreleased song Flower is the best Kylie has ever done musically.

Beautiful versions of many of her hits - many as good or even better. Vocally, Kylie never disappoints here!

14 Kylie

Besides Fever, this should be listed as number 2, and Fever should be listed as number 1. Kylie's debut album screams '80s, but for anyone who loves '80s music (like me), this is a must-have! Some of the songs on this album (in my opinion) still stand the test of time and sound like classics, instead of just some random cheesy '80s dance songs.

15 Enjoy Yourself

This album had something very special. First of all, the love songs were dramatically amazing, and also the sounds were easy and catchy.

16 Ultimate Kylie
17 Love at First Sight
18 Kylie Christmas: Snow Queen Edition
19 Kylie: Greatest Hits

The original hits CD is so strong. It is incredible the number of big hits in her early career. Contains all the hits from 1987 to 1991. The SAW team (the greatest British music production team) made Kylie a superstar and gave her their best material.
