Light Years (2000)
A breath of fresh air and campy ode to dance culture, it’s easily the most fun record of Minogue’s long career, anchored by some of her best singles, including “Spinning Around.” Its massive success set the stage for her postmillennial second coming.
Fever (2001/2002) Keeping her ear firmly tuned to the dance floor, Minogue ditches the disco-kitsch of Light Years and casts her eyes to the future. “Can’t Get You Out of My Head” was a worldwide smash, and finally broke the singer in North America, but this is a rare event-pop album where the whole is as strong as its parts.
