Editorial Reviews

The album that started it all for the former Australian soap opera star. The production team of Stock, Aitken & Waterman got hold of her and thus began the gush of hits. The biggest are represented here with her cover of 'The Locomotion' and 'I Should Be So Lucky'.

Format: Audio CD
Kylie Minogue first hit it big in her home country of Australia before breaking through to the UK, and is still going strong. Sadly, she was criminally not recognized or received in the same manner in this country. This, her 1988 album entitled Kylie, is where the saga begins.
Her debut was entirely written, produced, and arranged by Stock-Aitken-Waterman, the prime purveyors of bubblegum pop in the late 1980's. Kylie stands now as the classic epitome of the S-A-W sound.
The album bursts into overdrive instantly with the first two singles, "I Should Be So Lucky" and "The Loco-Motion", yes, the Little Eva song written by the famous songwriting duo of Carole King and Gerry Goffin. This version stayed on the top of the Aussie charts for 7 weeks straight. Personally, it should have gone for 12 weeks, but oh well.
"Je Ne Sais Pas Pourquoi", qui est francais pour "I don't know why", is a mid-paced single that provides a good beat. So is "It's No Secret". Then comes "Got To Be Certain", the third overdrive single on this album. I've always had trouble deciding which is my favorite single on here: this, "I Should Be So Lucky", "The Loco-Motion", or "Love At First Sight". More often than not, it ends up as a four-way tie.
As it turned out, the first six songs became singles, so that's three-fifths of the album right there. "Turn It Into Love" is yet another overdrive single and "I Miss You", the first non-single on the album, has a nice horn section mixed in with the S-A-W wall of synthesizer keyboards.
All ten songs on the entire album is an instant dance-party album, and not a filler among them.

Let me start off by saying this is AMAZING! You get the original album plus bonus tracks and then another CD of bonus tracks and a DVD of all of the music videos from the album including alternate versions of the music videos and a couple of clips that were previously only available on the Greatest Hits 87-97 DVD, the only difference here is that everything, including the videos have been digitally remastered from the original master tapes and lovingly restored by Cherry Red, you also get a THICK booklet filled with new photos and lyrics for all of the songs, including the bonus tracks and beautiful liner notes. Listening to the album truly took me back to the 80's and I loved enjoyed nearly every single track, the only other debut album to rival this one would be Madonna's debut album, Madonna. However it'll be an extremely long time before any of her back catalogue will get re-issues with the same treatment and care as Kylie's 4 PWL albums have recieved.

It really stinks that the original US edition of this album is out of print, especially with Kylie's recent resurgance of popularity stateside.
But anyways, this is the album that started it all for the international pop goddess. Long before Britney dazzled us, there was Kylie. Although this received modest success in the US back in the late-80's this album set records overseas and was a phenomenon. With the help of pop producers SAW *who made huge hits for Rick Astley and Bananarama* Kylie danced her way on to the pop charts. "The Locomotion" was the big US hit hitting #3 on the pop charts. My favorite track has to "I Should Be So Lucky" which was a top 40 hit in the states but a huge #1 single in the UK. The catchy pop ditty "It's No Secret" was her third Us top 40 hit. "Got To Be Certain" is also outstanding as "Turn it Into love" and "I don't Know Why" *the french track.* I also very much enjoy "Love At First sight" which is the closing track. *Kylie would later do a song by the same title for "Fever" and have a huge top 40 hit with it in the US.*
This may be corny but is a great and fun representation of 80's pop and a must for Kylie fans. I love her later works such as "Fever" and "Light Years", but this still stands out.

This is my favorite album from Kylie's PWL catalogue, and second overall of all of Kylie's albums. I love 7 out of the 10 tracks here, "Got To Be Certain" (#1 Australia) being my favorite, then followed by "I Should Be So Lucky" (#1 Australia & UK), "Turn It Into Love", "The Loco-Motion" (#1 Australia), "Je Ne Sais Pas Pourquoi" (#1 Finland), "I'll Still Be Loving You", and "It's No Secret" (#4 Japan). By far, this has to be one of the best debut album from any artist, as 4 of the 5 singles hit #1, and all 5 singles were top 5 in the charts. I don't know the history of singles hitting the charts from a debut album, but I must say, Kylie's debut album was a home-run.

The debut by Kylie Minogue is simply her best work of music. Back in 1988, I purchased her cassette single, "I should be so lucky". The euro pop beats from the acclaimed producers who wrote for Bananarama and Rick Astley were thee gods of late 1980's.
Kylie's voice was clear and crisp. I had no clue she was a television star in Australia. An added bonus for trivia. Listening to this release as cd format brings back the craziness of my teen years: my first job, adventures staying out late without calling my mother etc... Brilliant!
