Ultimate Kylie

Ultimate Kylie

by Kylie Minogue


There certainly hasn't been a shortage of Kylie Minogue hits compilations. Not all of them may have hit American shores, since she's never been as popular in the U.S. as she's been in Europe and her native Australia, and that only adds to the confusion. Some comps are identical in all territories, some only show up in the U.K., some only cover the first part of her career, some only the latter. Instead of merely enhancing the confusion, the 2004 compilation Ultimate Kylie clarifies matters by offering all of her big hits over the course of a double-disc, 33-song collection. While this doesn't run in chronological order -- a problem that plagues nearly all of Kylie's comps -- it nevertheless gives all the hits, both big and small, in one place, which means that this not only makes this ideal for fans for all levels of dedication, it means that Ultimate Kylie lives up to its billing.

Ultimate Kylie 5 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
Joyachiever More than 1 year ago
I initially reviewed this on June 22, 2008. I would definitely recommend this cd to fans of Kylie Minogue and non fans alike. What I love about this cd is that many of these songs are beautifully compiled together in terms of time era. For example, if you want to listen to Kylie in the 80's and 90's for the moment you would definitely check out cd 1. However if you crave the songs from the 2000's with some from the 90's check out cd 2. One of my favorite songs on her compilation is "come into my world" while my husband's is "where the wild roses grow". Many of the gems that I love of hers are on these cds but my top other fave songs would have to be "red blooded woman", "can't get you out of my head", "on a night like this", "in your eyes" and "slow". I love the ultimate kylie collection because it is upbeat, cheerful, sensual, and erotic at the same time. Plus this collection is any gem that will appeal to various occassions. If you like pop and/or europop or dance you will love this collection. Obviously “Ultimate Kylie” by Kylie Minogue is another purchase that I definitely feel is well worth the money.
