Such a fantastic album! I've been listening to it today and had forgotten how good it was! Has some great pop songs like Aphrodite, Everything is Beautiful and Better Than Today, a pop classic for sure. One of her best I think.

I think it's amongst her best too.

My favourite songs are Aphrodite, Get Outta My Way, Looking For an Angel and Mighty Rivers.

Always brings back memories of seeing the Aphrodite tour at the O2. That was such a great concert. Still smile about it now.

Put your hands up and All the lovers are my favourites, although I'll happily just play the album through.

It's a good album it's consistent fun really summery and so so catchy but it is very Kylie by numbers.

I like Get Outta My Way, Better Than Today, All The Lovers, Aphrodite, Mighty Rivers and Heartstrings. I just wish Mighty Rivers was available on CD.

I haven't listened to the other tracks for ages though. I'm not a really a big fan of Kylie's albums.

aphrodite was one of the highlights of my summer when it came out, all the lovers was such a perfect first single, and the rest of the album had more greatness

would have been good to see aphrodite and can't beat the feeling released as singles (as well as the release schedule being stronger, like having get outta my way come out in late august just when all the lovers left the top 40, rather than wait another month for it to come out and miss the top10

I've listened to some songs from it and it's a pretty good pop album. Must buy it sometime.

While i am by far not a "massive" Kylie fan i have to say memories of summer 2010 come to the fore with this album...its catchy...and as ever Stuart Price did a great job producing this album to give it a more euphoric/fun/breezy Synth feel...pretty much sums Kylie up really, fun, a little bit of quirkiness/campness and an all round simple enjoyment catchy Pop factor. and all round acohesive and fun summery album much like Light Years and Fever before it

This is by far the best Kylie album in years Light Years and Fever was the last time Kylie got it totally right and she done it again with Aphrodite. This is an excellent pop album which really makes you feel good.A perfect soundtrack for the summer

My favorite tracks are Get Out Of My Way, Everything Is Beautiful, Aphrodite, Illusion, and Better Than Today.

It's a good album with many strong tracks - All the Lovers, Aphrodite (definite single material) and GOOMY (one of her best singles in years), but also a fair bit of filler.

I don't listen to it as often as her other Parlo albums. The accompanying tour was incredible though.

Almost 3 years on and I still listen once or twice a week. Mighty Rivers is brilliant, and I agree that Can't Beat The Feeling should have been a single release.

Absolutely love All The Lovers. So infectious! Even though it doesn't bring back great memories for me.

The album is a good one, the title track is amazing and to agree with the comment about it's supporting tour, that was phenomenal!!

The only change I would have made would be to take out Looking For An Angel and put the divine Heartstrings in instead

Not the best album, then again modern Kylie is not that great.

I find her classic early hits far more amazing and I listen to them more.

Not to compare. but I find Retro classic kylie music better and Modern Dannii music better.

However, I know one day soon Kylie will come back with a hit again.

Too much and Aphrodite were wasted as album tracks and should of been singles . Though if all the lovers hadnt came along too much would have been the first single

loved it x was ok and had some good tracks but aprodite was great think the singles should have done better.
and looking for an angel should have been a 4th single.

I still can't believe Too Much was the ONLY album track left out of the live show - i much prefer it to Better Than Today which itself was a terrible choice as a single. i thought the Jake Shears and Calvin Harris involvement would've seen Too Much pushed as a single at some point but you never can tell with record companies

Completely agree! Better Than Today is one of her weakest singles in a long long time. The album had much stronger tracks, Aphrodite and Too Much being the highlights.

On first listen, i have to admit it all sounded a little samey and i was a tad dissappointed but on repeat listening i really got into it...especially Closer, Looking for an Angel and of course the gorgeous All The Lovers. However i still prefer X. Soooo looking forward to hearing her new music later this year

My favourite ever Kylie album and as previous posters have said, the highlight of my summer in 2010 (and tbh 2011 + 2012 ) Love All the Lovers, Get Outta My Way, Put Your Hands Up, Too Much, Can't Beat the Feeling, Better Than Today, Aphrodite, Illusion and Cupid Boy (more or less all of them )
The next album sounds like it will be all change... But still massively excited for it!
