Words Really Can’t Describe The Beauty Of This Album So It’s Probably Best You Just Listen To It.

Considering the amount of time that has elapsed since the artist began her journey in the industry, it is quite evident that Kylie Minogue deserves a lot of respect. The pop star has been around for over a decade and she has somehow managed to keep her name relevant. When you think about it, the name “Princess of pop” does not really seem appropriate for her anymore. That will mean she is in the same class as the likes of Britney Spears and she is beyond that. I believe she has qualified for the title “Queen of pop”. “Fever” was released in October 2001. That date was just a little over a year since she released "Light years" and both albums were successful. The success of "Fever" was definitely beyond the expectations of Kylie Minogue. It was included in the top 10 in twenty-four different countries and appeared on US Billboard as number 3.The album earned her quite a number of awards ranging from an Aria Awards to a MTV award, a Grammy award and another Grammy nomination. That must have been a really exciting time in the pop queen’s career. She also went on what was probably the largest scale tour of the time where she sang to over half a million people across the world. The response was so overwhelming, it silenced all her critics while the world listened. The sound of the album’s tracks were primarily from the ‘70s. The major strength of the album is probably powered by the fact that it does not try to be anything it’s not; Kylie was at peace with both her flaws and her strengths and she used that to her advantage. The album is simply about all things fun like dancing, humping and having a good time. Most of her fans were really grateful to her for that, while others needed something that they could listen to when they had to think or make important decisions. It seemed the artist had finally gotten her magic back but that was not entirely correct. The high level of success of this album in comparison with her past albums was mistaken by many for a comeback album. What they failed to realize was, the artist had already made a top ten in both Europe and Australia which attained a fair amount of success for the pop queen. Everyone was probably just waiting for her to produce something that was just a little bit decent so they could give her their full backing. And she did just that, she knew exactly what she was doing when she created this album. The mix was well calculated to ensure that the groove was just right and all that effort was really worth it because during the album play time, you will be convinced you are in a dream.

Fever Reintroduced Kylie Minogue To An International Audience

Kylie Minogue was already popular in the Philippines in the late 80s due to her hits Locomotion and her duet with Jason Donovan Especially For You a ballad, which the most well-liked local love teams would be singing during our popular noontime TV shows. Although Australia is just near the Philippines, Kylie Minogue never went here to do a show at the height of her popularity in the 80s – which I think, was more due to the unstable political situation in my country – or the perception of it being unsafe here from the international community. She “disappeared” from our local musical landscape the whole of the 90s but made a splashy return in the 2000s with the bouncy “Spinning Around” – a smash hit in the dance clubs here. The following year, she finally cemented that comeback with the worldwide smash “Can’t Get You Out of My Head” which also became hugely popular in the dance clubs here in Manila. The song reintroduced her to the US and was a #1 song in many countries around the world, thus reintroducing her to a new generation of fans. That song comes from the album Fever, which ranks up there as one of my most favorite albums from this Aussie chanteuse. We never thought she’d perform here in Manila anymore, especially that she had that breast cancer to deal with in the mid-2000s. I remember that time because she was set to perform in Hong Kong and Singapore but had to cancel both dates due to the doctor’s orders. Thankfully, she recovered well and was able to perform in Manila, in front of a sold-out crowd, to support her Aphrodite album in 2011.
