All The Lovers - Kylie Minogue

Released as a single in the Northern Hemisphere summer, “All The Lovers” is a sure-fire hit of the season. It is also sure to send many a gay dancefloor into a frenzy for many years to come. And is calculated as such by Minogue and producer Stuart Price, of Les Rythmes Digitales and Madonna's Confessions on a Dancefloor fame.

Both euphoric and nostalgic at the same time, this is as classic "Minogue" as her back-catalogue has ever reached. People will anchor their love memories from this time to this single, and remember such loves when prompted by future replays of “All The Lovers”. “All the lovers/That have gone before/They don’t compare/To you,” warbles Minogue.

There is a lot of garbled mid-range, mid-tempo dance electronica here, but Minogue’s vocals and a bittersweet treble synth hook stand above and stamp the single with authority.

The video, however, is a tragedy, making the single seem vapid and glib.

Minogue will have another hit with “All The Lovers”, and deservedly so. However, there is no genius here.
