Album Remarks & Appraisals:

Allmusic.com
This new set collects a fair amount of songs, 21 total, from all periods of her career, mixing them together with no regard from time-frame or style. It's an interesting choice that doesn't always work (her iffy cover of Kool and the Gang's "Celebration" makes no sense next to her sultry electro-pop jam "Slow" for example), but at the very least, it shows just how powerful a singer she's been since the beginning, and if you've followed her all along, it's nice to hear 1990's "Better the Devil You Know" next to 2010's "All the Lovers" and realize that Kylie has never been less than a perfect pop star. Unlike those who chase every trend or desperately seek stardom because they seem to need it to stay alive, Kylie's continued success is down to her unerringly classy approach and the choice of collaborators. This collection is proof that Kylie is arguably the best pop singer of her era and more importantly, is fun from beginning to end. Make sure to check back in five years for the next installment.

EMI Catalogue release 'The Best of Kylie Minogue' on June 4th. The album features 21 of the best known Kylie songs from her incredible 25-year career, on one disc. The tracks were chosen by the fans through extensive market research conducted by EMI late last year. 18 of the tracks were top 5 in the UK, including 5 number 1's !

With electronic grooves dominating Top 40 radio, Australia's Kylie Minogue and her euphoric dance pop are more relevant than ever. This 21-track set plays like a crash course in the history of international club style - from the aerobic corn of her fluke 1988 hit "The Loco-Motion" to 2010's feistier French house-inspired "Get Outta My Way."

Album Reviews:

Rolling Stone (p.79) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "Australia's Kylie Minogue and her euphoric dance pop are more relevant than ever."

Q (Magazine) (p.115) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "Part cipher, part siren, Minogue's odd power is underlined..."

About every five years or so, Kylie Minogue releases another hits collection. This isn't such a strange phenomenon since many artists repackage or re-release their hits at regular intervals to make some money or keep their name semi-relevant, but what's unique about Kylie is that she actually needs a new collection every five years to keep up with the hits she cranks out. Starting in 1988, she's been making breezy, sexy, and fun music that started off as disposable dance pop that was critically reviled (but much beloved by record buyers), but as time went on and her style shifted, the critics came onboard as well. As of 2012, when The Best of Kylie Minogue was released, she was still going strong. This new set collects a fair amount of songs, 21 total, from all periods of her career, mixing them together with no regard from time-frame or style. It's an interesting choice that doesn't always work (her iffy cover of Kool and the Gang's "Celebration" makes no sense next to her sultry electro-pop jam "Slow" for example), but at the very least, it shows just how powerful a singer she's been since the beginning, and if you've followed her all along, it's nice to hear 1990's "Better the Devil You Know" next to 2010's "All the Lovers" and realize that Kylie has never been less than a perfect pop star.
