  1. Not one weak track, not one misplaced syrupy ballad to ruin the groove. The winning streak continues.
  2. A perfect album of gorgeous dance music.
  3. 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.
  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. It's a bit cheeky, but that's Kylie, and that's pop. Where the songs are as good as 'Can't Get You Out Of My Head' it works beautifully.
  6. 40
    Sadly, while some will still be humming the hypnotic "Can't Get You Out Of My Head" come judgment day, the rest of Fever is more forgettable. [Feb/Mar 2002, p.114]
  7. By far Kylie's best album to date.
  8. 30
    Fever makes Britney Spears seem like even more of a pop genius. Scary. [May 2002, p.116]
  9. 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.
  10. Like the soundtrack of a very bad Jazzercise class.
  11. Sure, Fever's brushed-steel Eurodisco is old hat, Munich '77 via Paris '98. But mainlined along FM frequencies, it sounds totally 2002.
  12. 80
    Undoubtedly one of the most infectious records you'll hear this year.
  13. An astoundingly bland helping of hollow dance pop grooves and nauseating pleas for sex.
  14. 80
    The sophistication of its upbeat electro-pop construction allows Kylie to fly while her contemporaries simply float. [Apr 2002, p.77]
  15. The overwhelming majority of this album is unbelievably annoying dance pop.
