Golden - Kylie Minogue

I am very much in two minds about this woman. 
On the one hand, I find her reluctance to age physically somehow personally offensive. (Quit the fillers, people! Or at least get them done properly!)
But then at the same time, I can't help marvelling at her persistence in showing off her butt and sticking to her disco beats whichever other influences she may cross them with.
So I always give any new album of hers a shot.

PROS :
- It's still Kylie! Like it or not, it still swings, it still fairly runner-friendly music and I still defy any of us middle-aged ladies who shook our permed hair to the Stock-Aitken-Waterman rhythm to truly resist this. I know I can't.

CONS :
- What is it with this current fad for country influences?? Should I want country-music - though I cannot for the life of me figure out why I should - I would turn to Keith Urban or Lady Antebellum. Kylie should stick with collabs of the brilliant Nervo-Rodgers-Jake Shears kind.
- But then I do like change as a principle, so I suppose the aforementioned 'con' also contains a small percentage of 'pro'.



In short : It grows on you.
