  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]

    This is a brilliant pop album. It's pure Kylie pop - hummable, sensual, fun & euphoric. It contains fantastic goddess-like dancefloor anthemsThis is a brilliant pop album. It's pure Kylie pop - hummable, sensual, fun & euphoric. It contains fantastic goddess-like dancefloor anthems like All The Lovers, Put Your Hands Up (If You Feel Love), Cupid Boy and Can't Beat The Feeling as well as elegant chants like Illusion, Everything is Beautiful and Looking For An Angel. All in all, I think it's Kylie's best album, especially because of the amazing production work by Stuart Price, who successfully manages to put the album together as 'a whole piece' of music. Expand

It could almost be considered Kylie's answer to 'Confessions on a Dancefloor', if it wasn't for the smattering of filler tracks and lack of personal songs. That said, Kylie has always played to her strengths, she's not an overly deep artist. It's a fun and impeccably produced dance album - which is part of her legacy. Expand
