Some Thoughts On Kylie Minogue’s Exquisite Album Covers: Big Hair, Sex Appeal & That Gold Hat

Jan 24th, 2014 // 5 Comments

Kylie Minogue revealed the artwork for much-anticipated 12th album Kiss Me Once last night (January 23) and wowed fans with yet another iconic cover. The Australian pop legend puckers up for a kiss in the playful image with only a sheet of wet glass between her and the world.

It’s a cute concept but how does it rate next to the diva’s other album covers? There’s the hyper-sexual Fever, fun and fabulous Light Years and quirky X, as well as my favorite — grunge Kylie circa Impossible Princess. In the name of scientific research, I decided to revisit the 45-year-old’s discography with fellow Idolator editor (and Minogue enthusiast) Robbie Daw.

Find out what we had to say about Kylie’s stunning LP art above.

  1. “Aphrodite” is my favorite, but “Fever” is such a classic cover. Big props to “Body Language” as well :)

  2. “Fever” is her artistic and visual peak so it only makes sense that the era is represented in part, by an iconic and perfect album cover. Like “CGYOOMH,” the song that catapulted Kylie to global superstardom, the cover still looks phenomenal and current 12+ years later. “Body Language,” on the other hand, is sexy and cool just like the lady herself.

    actually the cover for Kiss Me Once is very good I love it, although my favorite is light years because is very electro-POP.

    Im a big fan of Kylie since Fever and I think that after Fever every cover has been really good and modern.

    I own all of the albums and still have the competition poster from the ‘Enjoy Yourself’ album on the inside !
    I remember seeing the ‘Light Years’ cover and thinking woohoo Kylie is BACK, but my favourite is probably ‘Fever’ – what an album. The whole look and the music captured that period perfectly. Brilliant.
