One of Kylie's best albums for me. I saw 'All the Lovers' on TV today and everything about it is just so good.

Not sure what to make of the shocks that are coming. They better not make me angry. mad.gif

18 | 6.6 | Heartstrings

The first to bow out is the Japanese bonus track Heartstrings. I don't quite know why, it's not the worst track on the album, it's really rather sweet and melodic.
One can only assume some of you just voted it lower because you aren't so aware of it, which is silly since it's 5 years old.

That's a fairly nondescript piece of music to be fair, not terribly devastated to see it finish lowly.

This is such a fantastic album with so many brilliant and bright moments, that definitely ranks in her top 5 alltime best. There were so many memorable moments on this and bought it the day it came out and loved it. I had it on constant repeat for months and months after.

I know downloading is all the craze and most songs that come out now, I do download. But when Kylie's got a new album on the horizon, I make it my duty not to listen to it until it's released, coz I know it sounds stupid, I don't wanna spoil the surprise.

Okay I do listen to some of the snippets on YouTube, but that's it. Soon as "All The Lovers" came out I was very excited, and then heard a short clip of "Get Outta My Way" and I just couldn't contain myself. Then when the album finally came out, I was hooked.

My fave tracks on this are =
All The Lovers
Get Outta My Way
Closer
Aphrodite
Too Much
Cupid Boy
Looking For An Angel

I know that's nearly all the album, but there just weren't any bad tracks on it at all, even the ones I didn't mention, I still find decent and enjoyable, there isn't bad song in sight on this, my least fave on this was "Illusion" which I rarely go back to, but even that's of good quality.

Not surprised that "Heartstrings" was out first, again a very decent track, but very fillerish and there are much better still to come.

Heartstring is lovely, middle of the album for sure, nowhere near the bottom given there is some proper duff on there.

'Heartstrings' is the best out of the three bonus tracks, really lovely song, although I'm not too saddened at it leaving first, even if it wasn't deserved. Still, 6.6 as an average is pretty good for last place!

Once again I agree with all this.

I too had Aphrodite on repeat for ages after its release; was just the ultimate summer album and certainly defined summer 2010 for me. My second favourite Kylie album, I think, following Light Years.

Why do I keep missing these Kylie rates! drama.gif Oh well.

'Get Outta My Way' for the win, and I pray that 'Too Much' is Top 10, I adore it.

17 | 6.69 | Illusion

One of the few tracks Kylie had a hand in writing on the album, Illusion is defo a weak point on the album, although the "like the headline of a magazine, are you what you seem?" line is one of the best on the whole album. What else is there to say about this song? Well it was pretty good on the tour, which is something I guess.

I love 'Illusion' and it's always a joy to listen to, but I always seem to forget its existence when I think over that era.

Sounds really nice in isolation but definitely towards the bottom of the album when listening to it all.

Such a shame to see that out so early, especially when there are at least 5 absolutely atrocious songs on the album. It could do with being longer though, but that's the only criticism I have. More unexpected stuff like that and the album might not have been such a BORE.

Like I already said Illusion is definitely one of the weaker moments on the album, but still decent enough though.

16 | 6.73 | Everything Is Beautiful

One of the very best songs Kylie has ever recorded and y'all make it one of the lowest tracks in this rate. Shame on you all.

Totally surprise to see "Everything Is Beautiful" this low, especially over some of the bonus and unreleased tracks

Too high. Utter turd of a song. It has about as much going for it as diahorrea soup.

That's a big shame. It's exactly what the album is about for me and I agree with Acidburn that there's a few songs that didn't make the main tracking list that should have gone first.

Regina, why don't you publish the players' names with their highest and lowest scores?

I like "Everything is beautiful" enough but the tour version sounds a bit meh.

I enjoy 'Everything Is Beautiful' a lot, it's about middle ground of the album for me.
