  1. The diminutive Australian diva is still delivering disco thunder from Down Under.
  2. Aphrodite is the work of someone who knows exactly what her skills are and who to hire to help showcase them to perfection.
  3. The new set casts a spell with Stuart Price's signature preternatural touches, Minogue's breathy chirp and the hooky melodies of a varied crew of dance pop-focused songwriters and producers.

    Her return to electro-pop form on Aphrodite–Minogue's 11th studio record in 23 years–is on point, maybe even better, than much of her discography.
  5. Sometimes dance pop with this much gloss and unabashed glee is relegated to the realms of guilty pleasure, but Aphrodite is that rare representation of perfect production that is just pleasure, pure and simple.
  6. There aren't many new ideas here, just more of the old reliable - which, from such a believer, is still finely executed.
  7. Uncut

    Despite her vaguely regal poise, and a songwriting crew including Jake Shears, Calvin Harris and Tim-from-Keane, Aphrodite is dismayingly anonymous pop-trance. [Aug 2010, p.84]

Better Than Today's wonderful, my favorite from the album. Too bad he had been wronged in the estimated sales of 800k to 1 million copies. Expand

    Without a doubt, dance music is his forte, and he has given us an album full of art, not to mention the perfection of the Aphrodite Les Folies Tour.
