Kylie Live in New York
Label: Parlophone UK
Kylie's true home may be in the studio, where she injects hot blood into cold circuitry to turn out some of the most delicious electronic pop around, but Live in NY proves that she amply holds her own onstage. As do the synths, for that matter: Her high-NRG cyborg disco sounds massive in the echoing confines of the Hammerstein Ballroom, with swells of crowd noise rumbling beneath it all like the vibrations from a rocket launch. The album covers plenty of her catalog, with highlights including a deliriously woozy "Slow" and even a rendition of the famous "Blue Monday" mash-up.
