Queen Kylie Minogue’s 2020 album, the bluntly titled Disco, was brilliantly lit by the glow of the disco ball. This time around, she’s bringing an electro-pop strobe to the dance floor —and, at 55, proving age really doesn’t mean anything. While Madonna has been spinning fruitlessly in search of reinvention, Minogue just keeps nailing trends and staying refreshingly relevant. “Padam Padam”—the onomatopoeic sound of a heartbeat—lives in a metallic echo chamber, carefully curated by producer Lostboy and decorated with an infectious snake-charmer chorus. “I’ll be in your head all weekend,” Minogue sings prophetically. “Tension” goes deep with ’90s house keyboards and beats, and a robotic effect for Mingoue’s sexy come-on, directing exactly how she wants to be handled by a lover—”Oh, my god/ Touch me right there/ Almost there/ touch me right there”—while also also making it clear she is completely in control: “I’m a star babe-babe-babe/ Do this all day-day-day/ Cool like sorbet-bet-bet.” She works all her vocal tricks on tropical-vibe “One More Time”: cooing, showing powerhouse strength, effortlessly hitting the high notes, sassing and whooping and sweating it. (Even though it’s not a direct tribute, you can’t help but be reminded by Daft Punk’s monster hit of the same name.) “Green Light” is cool-breeze cafe pop with smooooooth jazz sax. “Things We Do for Love” delivers an energetic burst of euphoria with a shiny soap bubble of a bridge. “You Still Get Me High” fronts like a prom ballad before erupting into an emo-beat thriller, with wailing sax upping the adrenaline; it’s like Kylie x Bleachers, and it’s fun. “Hands” finds Minogue casually rapping and delighting in ’90s girl-group R&B. “Vegas High” captures that city’s cut-loose party vibe and is obviously a tie-in for her residency at the Venetian, which begins November 2023. But she makes up for that bit of cheesiness with “10 Out of 10,” a goofy, giddy lark of a collaboration with Dutch DJ Oliver Heldens that delivers a Pet Shop Boys-style droll chorus: “Body, 10/ Touch, 10 / Energy, 10.” Kylie: 10.
