Kylie Minogue has made a career out of glittery, joyful pop songs that beg to be played under a disco ball. But after 13 albums, it was time to try something new. The Australian superstar went searching for inspiration and found herself line dancing in Nashville, where she mined the city’s storytelling techniques and summoned her inner Dolly Parton. Golden is a country-meets-club jubilee that praises dreaming big (“Raining Glitter"), taking chances (“Shelby '68”), and singing at the top of your lungs (“Rollin’”). Album standout “Stop Me from Falling”—lit with rhythmic tambourine, high-pitched harmonies, and chiming piano—is as escapist and life-affirming as a night under Music Row’s neon lights.
