    Hitting the same highs as her triumphant 2000s stretch -- namely Light Years, Fever, X, and Aphrodite -- this glittery, feel-good set is nothing short of euphoric, a dozen near-perfect gems that pay respect to the album's namesake era while updating the production with thrilling results

    As an ode to the pleasures of the dancefloor, Kylie has delivered her most unashamedly fun record in almost a decade.

    You can’t say it doesn’t deliver exactly what it promises. While Minogue has rarely ventured too far from her dance-pop comfort zone, “Disco” displays a particularly glorious single-mindedness, exploring the genre’s past, present and future with nary a ballad or a twangy guitar lick in sight. Minogue’s most consistent and cohesive album since her oughts-era heyday.

    If ‘DISCO’ might not be the most progressive or groundbreaking album of the year, it’s certainly up there as one of the most charming.

    While the album might be a purely derivative work, its period arrangements—all sweeping disco strings, Nile Rodgers-esque guitar licks, and indiscriminately deployed cowbell—are executed with aplomb.

    Disco offers a set of familiar grooves. ... Her comfort zone is effervescence and escapism, in the pursuit of which Disco stays light on its feet and easy on the ear. We’ve heard it all before, but Kylie has the floor, and, honestly, she sounds like she’s having a (glitter)ball.

    Disco is too much of a safe, shiny, frictionless crowd-pleaser to deliver much more than mildly entertaining retro pastiche. [Jan 2021, p.31]

    Excellent album. Joy, escapism, dance... this is the real mix of the Disco era (the album and the genre). Wonderful work, Kylie!

Kylie tem em suas mãos um trabalhl cheio de grandes hits, um álbum dançante que te transposta pra uma pista de dança dos anos 70 e 80, com fortes referências de Abba, Donna Summer e outros ícones que marcaram o gênero, Kylie flerta com ritmo que é o seu chão. O Álbum é pura nostalgia, com forte emboramento, letras e instrumetal muito bem estruturados. Se você quer dançar, cantar e sentir aquele sentimento de saudades é só ouvir Disco e da play novamente.

With an album called DISCO (in all capitals!), it was obvious that she would put those things to the forefront, and seriously, who needs anything else after this mess of a year? After her side-projects and experiments in the past decade, this is at last a comeback of the Kylie we all know, but perfected and more confident than ever. She’s unashamedly having fun and delivering pure pop, and she doesn’t even advertise it as anything but. Expand
