Kylie Minogue
Ultimate Kylie

Even though it wasn't until recently that the U.S caught Kylie fever, ironically through the artist's Fever release, which featured the oh-so-infectious "Can’t Get You Out of My Head," Kylie herself had been around for years. The singer's been a regular in the E-biz since she debuted on Australian television shows Skyways and The Sullivans at age eleven. She debuted in 1988 with Kylie, an album succeeded by eight studio releases. Like fellow diva Madonna, Kylie's had her share of stints in bad movies (Streetfighter, Biodome), along with a quasi-Evita moment as the Green Fairy in Moulin Rouge. Throughout her success, Minogue has modeled the versatility of the Material Girl, by changing from girl next door to all out vamp, while earning comparable fame and success in the UK.

In the midst of her Showgirl: The Greatest Hits tour, Ultimate Kylie is a 33- track double disc collection, all being previous hits except new single, the Scissor Sisters-penned "I Believe in You."

The first disc runs through a lot of the artist's earlier material, including the 1988 debut Kylie, as well as her hits up until 1991's Let's Get to It, along with a cover of "Celebration" from a greatest hits release in 1992. Many of these tracks are indigestible in current times, signaling how well Kylie's has managed to keep up with the hype, which isn't always too much of a good thing. "Shocked" features a rapper sounding like Technotronic named Jazzi P. A club mix of "Loco-Motion" is here, along with the cover of Chairmen of the Board's "Give Me Just a Little More Time."

The second disc covers 1994's Kylie Minogue up until the latest release, Body Language, featuring hits more popular among fans of current dance pop. The cooled down rhythm of "Slow" is the album's best, though highly addictive "Can't Get You Out of My Head" runs a close second. UK favorite Robbie Williams duets on "Kids," as does Nick Cave on "Where the Wild Roses Grow," ending the set with a song like none of the rest, given it's moreso Cave's release .

However minute it may appear in regards to Kylie's entire collection, the double disc works wonders at capsulizing the musician's entire career. For fans who have yet to build their own Minogue collection, Ultimate Kylie aims to please.
