Fever was released on a wave of publicity as the lead single, "Can't Get You out of My Head," battled on the U.K. charts with the debut effort of Spice diva Victoria Beckham--and it won spectacularly. Kylie Minogue's sound has progressed again since the disco-inspired Light Years, plundering the retro style of post-disco electro from the late 1970s and showing what might have happened if Kraftwerk had produced Donna Summer or Chic. Unlike most pop albums, or indeed pop artists, Fever is geared toward high-energy dance rather than pedestrian "I love lovin' you" ballads. Aside from the aforementioned hit single, another standout is "Give It to Me," a great piece of dance pop that has everything from Britney-style wailings to Basement Jaxx funk wrapped up with a catchy and typically suggestive chorus. The closest Minogue gets to a gentler moment is at the very end with "Burning Up," a breezy guitar progression with a laid-back melody, but it doesn't last long as the need to start dancing again takes hold and Fever breaks into some electro funk, finishing on a definite high. --David Trueman

Review

Sure, maybe she is Australia's provincial answer to Madonna, perpetually in and around the news for the past decade and always making her presence felt musically, most often in the form of dance tracks (you probably missed the '90s remix Felix Da Housecat did for her). And yes, she still has yet to live down her lone American hit, an innocuous late-'80s cover of "The Loco-Motion."

So while Fever plays like her version of Olivia Newton-John getting Physical with America back in the day, it never fully delivers on its similar promise of guilty pleasures, bawdy beats (and most importantly) well-crafted songs.

Blasting off with the disco-fied "More More More" and the Madonna-molests-Daft-Punk pop of "Love at First Sight," she drops "Can't Get You Out of My Head," a decidedly delicious ditty that actually lives up to the album's glam-slam pretensions. If only for a moment, it would seem that Minogue's onto something.

Alas, how quickly the fizz fades. The title track plays like a reject from P. Diddy's babe band Dream's album, and let's not even get into the embarrassingly fake funk of "Give It to Me." We're talking classic Paula Abdul here.

She thankfully turns down the rah-rah machine for the smooth gloss of "Fragile," one of the album's most bearable moments.

But it's short-lived, as Minogue resorts to sickly sweet fluff like "Come into My World," although the cheesy disco bop of "Dancefloor" is something of a . . . guilty pleasure. Still, Fever makes Britney Spears seem like even more of a pop genius. Scary.

To American audiences, Kylie Minogue is one of those attractive one-hit wonders; one who cranked out a less-than-stellar, and otherwise unnecessary remake of Little Eva's "Loco-Motion" as the 1980s drew to a close. Sadly, she never caught on in the U.S., despite the fact that her early singles were fun and frothy little tunes, if not earth-shattering.// After cranking out hits as part of a hit factory in the 1980s and suffering a commercial and critical dismissal in the 1990s, Kylie Minogue's dues were finally declared paid in 2000 when she launched an unlikely comeback to rival that of Tina Turner in 1984. She guested on albums by artists ranging from Robbie Williams to the Pet Shop Boys and ultimately released her campy disco album "Light Years," and it clicked--it was fun, it was just retro enough to be hip, and most of all, it was mighty good. Suddenly, it was okay to take her seriously.// To follow up, she's dropped a spectacular album on the market, and in doing so, reversed her musical direction and rendered herself a truly "serious" artist--essentially, more than a decade after we first heard from her, she has finally hit her career peak creatively and commercially.// How good is this album? It's sterling. There's not a weak track among the bunch. She doesn't resort to sliding a ballad in among the tracks, and that pays off--she sets a mood. Kylie came to dance, and dance she does.// The tracks pull from current music trends and classic disco (think disco supergroup Chic), but instead of sounding like a derivative of what's popular now, it's more like an integration of new sounds.Read more ›

This is the only CD that I own by Kylie Minogue so I can't really compare it to her others but from what I can hear this FEVER is burning hot. From the opening groove of "More More More" to the last more techno sounding "Butterfly" this CD is guaranteed to blow your mind.
About 15 years ago Kylie broke out in the US with her hit cover of "Locomotion", thereafter exploding with continuous chart toppers in the UK. Until recently nobody could remember who Kylie was until the huge radio single "Can't Get You Out Of My Head" came out and did just that. I remember when that song first came out and everyone was humming to it. Its died down now but I hope that she can continue to dominate the pop charts because she really does deserve that type of fame. She's so much more talented than Britney Spears who sounds like a chipmunk when she sings and I think that its time that we recognize that and hand her her rightful crown. With sweeping ballads like "Fragile" and potential chart toppers like "Come Into My World" (which will probably be her next single) and "Love Affair" (which pumps with rhythmic techno) this is destined to become one of the best dance albums ever made. In my own opinion every song here is a potential hit but others that standout from the rest include the r&b spiced "Boy" (which is one of two hidden tracks only found on the US release) and the funky "Burning Up" with its infectuous disco beats. So if you like electronic groups like Daft Punk and Basement Jaxx with fun dance-pop (not to mention catchy choruses) than Kylie Minogue's FEVER is the perfect album to light your fire with.
This is pure ear candy and it's highly recommended.

The last time Kylie Minogue made waves in the US, she had a couple of 1988 hits--"I Should Be So Lucky" and "Loco Motion"--produced by the hitmaking team of Stock Aitken Waterman. Since then, she faded into obscurity while she racked up over 30 hits in the UK, where she sells as many records as Madonna or Janet. "Fever" could very well be the record that will put Minogue back on America's map; it's a great collection of frothy yet incredibly catchy disco tunes. To be sure, the disc has its share of filler, but a handful of the tracks here practically flirt with perfection. "Love at First Sight" is such a bright, perky, highly energetic disco number that has "single" written all over it, while "Dancefloor" is an infectous romp that also stands out. "Burning Up" is an irrestible track that alternates between acoustic and straight-up disco, while the single "I Can't Get You Out of My Head" is a hypnotic song about sexual obsession. Minogue has fallen in and out of favor with critics and audiences alike over the years, but I have faithfully followed her through all this time. "Fever" is a strikingly good record that should give Minogue the US recognition she deserves.

There are so many features that make this incredible edition of "Fever" the ONLY version to own, I don't know where to begin. Here's a brief breakdown:
-The US radio editions of the singles, most notably the rare and almost-impossible-to-find Ruff & Jam version of "Love At First Sight"
-The B-sides "Good Like That" , "Baby" , "Can't Get Blue Monday Out Of My Head" , "Whenever You Feel Like It" , and "Tightrope"
These are all really excellent, and deserved to be on the album the first time around.
-The remixes are kind of hit-and-miss in my opinion, but the good ones are really on the mark.
-The videos for all four singles from the album ("Can't Get You Out Of My Head" , "In Your Eyes" , "Love At First Sight" , and "Come Into My World")
Even though it is a bit expensive, it is worth it to have all of this on 2 CDs. Get it now!!!

Can't get you out of my head?
No one made Can't Get You Out Of My Head before Kylie Minogue. It was written by Cathy Dennis and Rob Davis in 2001. It was originally offered to Sophie Ellis-Bextor but Minogue ended up recording it.
