Kylie Minogue= 5'1" of feel good factor

It is no secret that I have never been a steadfast fan of Miss Minogue but her latest single All The Lovers, from upcoming album Aphrodite may have thrown my seemingly black and white opinion of her into disarray.

The simple fact is that after twenty years in the business her music can still rival those half her age and her perfectly sculpted body is well, perfect.

The track itself  underlines the Aussie's undiminishing presence as key player in the pop arena, whilst allowing for growth in alternate genres with the incorporation of electronic even trance like beats. The lyrics, touchy feely as they may be, are nonetheless irritatingly catchy inciting an air of change, hope and expectation.

As for the video, it's like stepping into a collaborative ad between GAP and Dove where age, gender, race and religion are neither here nor there. Regardless of its somewhat fantastical aspect; a naked human pyramid which stands swaying in downtown LA, an inflatable flying elephant and a galloping white horse this video is as real as it is raw and as such unmissable.

Listen now to All The Lovers:
