    Her last album, 2014's Kiss Me Once, felt unfortunately cheesy at times, so it's a pleasant surprise to find Minogue playing to her strengths here.

    For a once fearlessly progressive pop star, the otherwise lovingly executed and heartwarming Kylie Christmas feels like a bit of a missed opportunity to innovate a well-worn genre.

    The patchiness of the album is perhaps a consequence of Kylie trying to placate the disparate portions of her remaining fanbase. Still, seven keepers out of 13 is a decent hit rate. A merry little album.

    Throughout the album, Kylie sounds very game, merry even, and there's enough holiday spirit on offer to help even the grinchiest customer make it through the season with the bare minimum of humbug.

    The fun and fake snow does wear off after a few songs though. [Jan 2016, p.112]

    Kylie’s Christmas is wearyingly hard going at times.

    Even listened to while off your knockers on sherry, Kylie Christmas is a confusing package: the first three songs are orchestral, big-band numbers delivered with all the joie de vivre of a Sainsbury’s advert. Then it gives up entirely on that genre, and fires off random collaboration ideas that border on Monkey Tennis territory.

    What I like about this is that Kylie is diverse and turns out the soulful Christmas genre suits her. Santa Baby is particularly quite good.

O álbum soou mais como uma realização pessoal da Kylie, que depois de tantos anos na indústria musical e já tendo feito tantos trabalhos tinha a necessidade de fazer um álbum natalino. As músicas que eu mais gostei são ''Christmas Wrapping" e "Oh Santa". Expand

After years and years of releasing crap dance music that doesn't sell anymore (not even in the U.K.) she tries to be the next Mariah Carey, failing miserably with her cheesy covers and her annoying paper thin "lolita" voice Expand
