I haven’t got hold of a Kylie album for a long time despite being a bit of a fan (we refer to her as Kylie…Lovely Kylie… in our house!). It’s almost like when Ultimate Kylie came out in 2004 what else did I need? Getting tickets for Kylies upcoming tour as a birthday pressie is a real treat as I have never seen her live, and I also got the extra-track Deluxe edition of Golden, a nice little hardback book containing the CD. Mainly recorded in Nashville the tracks have been given a country twang but Kylie retains her pop princess crown throughout. Tracks like Radio On really show how Kylie can carry the mellower songs, but it’s the dancier tracks where she continues to uplift and get you smiling. There are occasions when you feel the “twang” may have been overdone a bit but the songs are well written and it makes for a great album to listen to in the sunshine!
Standout track: Raining Glitter
