For unabashed, unapologetic pop music fun Kylie Minogue albums are often the answer. With the Aussie singer's 11th album "Aphrodite" this fact is blissfully reaffirmed.

Precision-tooled to blare out of speakers everywhere from San Diego BMWs to overpriced Parisian boutiques to Caribbean nightclubs, this clever, infectious baker's dozen of pop tunes flies out of the oven aimed squarely at the pleasure zone of Minogue's core audience. It is a thing of beauty.

The album has a very appealing sonic marriage of 2002's heavy-handed dance of "Fever" with the upbeat yet cool-as-cucumber lounge-ready pop of hits such as "I Believe In You" and "Chocolate." The result is an uptempo but unserious sound that is often quite European and always danceable.

Lead single "All the Lovers" is an ideal example. Its ceaseless beats have the resonance of disco yet are laser-like and modern. As with other key tracks such as the blissful eureka moment of "Everything Is Beautiful" or the high-BPM "Put Your Hands Up," a confident kiss goodbye to sadness courtesy of the dance floor, the song has a smart, sunny Euro-pop sheen that immediately ingratiates itself. Minogue's smooth, sweet, feminine vocals lead the way.

The diva-comeback theme of the cheeky, delightful, softly rambunctious title track can be seen coming from a mile away, but this upfront lack of pretense is part of Minogue's effortless charm. "Better Than Today" also impresses with its sharply-chiseled synthesizers buoying her jubilant vocals.

Unlike 2007's "X," there is a track or two that do not impress as much as those that surround.

Foreword

It was 1988 when Kylie first made her presence felt in the pop world but it was not until 2000 - 12 years later that she finally came into her own. Following four successful albums under manufactured pop gurus- Stock, Aitken & Waterman, she severed ties with her mentors in 1992 in favour of creative independence and new horizons. The albums that followed- 1994's `Kylie Minogue' & 1997's `Impossible Princess' (both on Deconstruction Records) whilst containing a handful of great songs - most notably on her `94 effort, were ultimately misguided and patchy affairs which failed to live up to expectations. By the late 90's, and now having passed the age of 30, it seemed KM's career in pop was all but over. Yet it would be the Noughties in which the Aussie star truly shined. Returning to her Dance-Pop roots for new single `Spinning Around' in 2000, the song was paired with an eye popping video in which she wore a pair of gold hot pants - helping to send it to the top of the charts in the UK & Australia. The rest as they say is history. Here's a brief recap of The Princess of Pop's output over the last 10 years-

Light Years (2000) `70's Disco meets early Noughties Dance-Pop on Kylie's big comeback album for the new century. Light Years ft. some great singles in `Spinning Around' `On a Night like This' & `Please Stay' but it all gets a bit too camp in the middle and the majority of the album is forgettable. Light Years marked the first album in a long and successful relationship with Parlophone Records. 5/10. Fever (2001) Not only her best album musically speaking, but also her most commercially successful release. Fever is the center piece of the KM discography. Unlike `Light Years' the 1970's disco is minimal and the camp silliness entirely absent.

Kylie's eleventh studio album changed directions from the previous three (`Fever', `Body Language' and `X'), which had (on several of their tracks) adopted a harder edge as compared with albums 1-7. `Aphrodite' gets back to being smooth; for instance, the power synths on `X' have given way to atmospheric, strongly reverberant, and at times breathy patches, such that at times the lyrics are difficult to decipher. The emotions expressed, and the melodies and harmonies tend towards more intense sorts than many on some of the songs on `Light Years' (album #7, the last of her CD's that can be characterized as `smooth' all the way through), though here, there is plenty of playfulness as well.

The storytelling, formal structure and progressions, the melodic expressiveness, etc. hearken back to quality tunes from Sixties groups as diverse as Jefferson Airplane, (the) Four Tops, and the Supremes. Quite frankly, much of the songwriting, arrangements and performances are baffling, stunning, exemplary, and so on. Surely I wouldn't quite put it on the level of `Surrealistic Pillow', but the comparison is instructive.

I'm not convinced that the overall quality, variety, and flow of the tracks quite matches Minogue's other two best overall efforts, those being `Let's Get to It' (album #4) and `Fever' (album #7). But more careful and long-term listening may change my opinion about it.

THE INDIVIDUAL SONGS:

"All the Lovers" [5++ stars]
The song set begins with this marvelous exhortation to dance.
