Most teenybpop singers hit their peak early on and then repeat themselves over and over again until everyone gets thoroughly sick of them. Against all expectations Kylie Minogue is doing something very different, extending her range and re-inventing herself with each successive album. Fever is simply a genuinely great pop record, a swaggering, self-confident collection of irresistible dancefloor tunes that only the most willfully blind indie snob could resist. Echoes of everyone from the Supremes to Abba can be heard in there, while Kylie herself sings with an assurance that eclipses almost everything she's ever done before. Neighbours has never seemed so far away.
