X (2008) finds Kylie Minogue in excellent form. After the commercial and critical success of 2004's BODY LANGUAGE and a harrowing battle with cancer, the Australian pop diva seemed poised to bounce back onto the scene with a new energy, and that's precisely what she did. X doesn't signal a radical change in direction, however. Instead, it plays like an expression of her greatest strength, namely making immediately hooky dance-pop that draws effortlessly on `80s mainstream pop, hard-driving club music, and contemporary R&B.
One of the impressive things about X is how diverse it is. There are glam-rock grinders (opener "2 Hearts"), classic-sounding Madonna-esque gems ("Wow"), intimate R&B groovers ("All I See"), tense electro-pop ("Like a Drug"), and breathy, atmospheric jams ("Sensitized"). All of this comes off sounding remarkably unified and consistent, making X a satisfying listen from front to back. Minogue isn't out to reinvent the wheel, and has never claimed she is-but X is pure pop pleasure, and as such succeeds beautifully
