Kylie Minogue Announces ‘Step Back In Time: The Definitive Collection’

Kylie Minogue's 'Golden': Album Review
We dissect Kylie's country-pop reinvention on 2018's very good 'Golden.'

Kylie Minogue is releasing a new best-of compilation called Step Back In Time: The Definitive Collection on June 28 (pre-order here). The 42-track opus covers four decades of hits, but it is by no means comprehensive. In fact, some of the Aussie pop icon’s best tracks are MIA. Notable omissions include “Where Is The Feeling?,” “Some Kind Of Bliss,” “Did It Again,” “Word Is Out,” “Chocolate,” and “Giving You Up.” Lesser known tunes like “Turn It Into Love,” “It’s No Secret” and “GBI” didn’t stand a chance.

While the tracklist is a little frustrating, it is nice to have songs from the SAW years, Deconstruction era, her second imperial phase and country adventure on the same album. Kylie was also kind enough to throw in a new song — “New York City.” It was originally recorded for Golden and will be familiar to fans as part of the medley that featured “Raining Glitter” and “On a Night Like This” on the Golden Tour. It should also be noted that the packaging is very innovative.

Step Back In Time will be released as a Deluxe CD with a 32-page case-bound book, a 2-LP picture disc vinyl, a 2-LP limited edition mint green vinyl, a 2-LP standard black gatefold vinyl, and a double cassette available in 5 limited edition colors. See all the options here. Obviously, I want them all. Peruse the tracklist below.
