  • Summary: This high-energy dance album from the Australian veteran includes the UK hit single "Can't Get You out of My Head." It is her first American release since 1988, although she has retained her popularity in Europe and her native Australia since the 1980's, updating her sound along the way.

  1. A perfect album of gorgeous dance music.
  2. Not one weak track, not one misplaced syrupy ballad to ruin the groove. The winning streak continues.

    The sophistication of its upbeat electro-pop construction allows Kylie to fly while her contemporaries simply float. [Apr 2002, p.77]
  4. Fast, full of old-fashioned hooks and newfangled techno hiccups, campy as a tent full of Boy Scouts and yet easy on the cheese.
  5. An album that exudes both class and conviction, and it's a welcome breather from the avalanche of beautiful introspection that's come to characterise 2001.
  6. Featuring no less than 15 different songwriters, Fever is step-aerobic heaven, each song shiny, bouncy and as expertly arranged, if ultimately soulless, as one would expect from so many contributors.
  7. An astoundingly bland helping of hollow dance pop grooves and nauseating pleas for sex.

    Pop/Dance album masterpiece. There is arguably NO weak track on this cohesive album.
    Highlights are the record breaking "Can't Get You Out of My Head", the cheerful "Love at First Sight", the immersive "In Your Eyes", and some other hidden gems like "Love Affair", "Your Love".
    The b-sides/extras from that era were amazing tracks as well, from "Rendezvous at Sunset" to "Good Like That", without forgetting the timeless "Tightrope".
