Can’t Get You Out of My Box: Kylie Albums Collected in New U.K. Set

with one comment

Next up in our continued coverage of today’s new catalogue releases is a new, semi-notable box set from pop star extraordinaire Kylie Minogue.

Though the Australian singer/actress is unfairly known in the U.S. for two songs – a Stock-Aitken-Waterman-produced cover of Little Eva’s “The Loco-Motion” that hit No. 3 in 1988 and the slinky club track “Can’t Get You Out of My Head,” which hit No. 7 in 2002 – Minogue has rarely stayed away from the upper reaches of the U.K. and Australian charts. In 2010, her most recent album, Aphrodite, topped the British charts, making her the only female act to have a No. 1 album in every decade since the 1980s.

Her five albums for Parlophone in Europe over the past decade saw Kylie truly come into her own as a self-assured solo act with the greatest amount of artistic control she had enjoyed at the time. Now, those albums are collated into one set, Kylie: The Albums 2000-2010. While it offers no extra content (it in fact still offers only the second pressing of Fever, which offered the radio edit of “Come Into My World” instead of the original version), it’s as always a nice, concise way to get all of these albums in one shot if you haven’t previously done so.

Reacquaint yourself with the albums after the jump.

  1. LIght Years originally had a hidden track “Password” before track 1. Body Language finished with a track called Slow Motion on the initial pressing. The Aussie version of Fever ended with a song called Tightrope. Not too impressed 😦
