I think Golden was incredibly divisive amongst her hardcore fan base, but less so amongst the GP who liked Dancing and bought the album as a result. It was a really good move to get them back on board, and then release Disco which has the potential to appeal to both groups. I love Golden, but I totally understand criticisms around lazy production, I mean they didn’t even bother fixing a mastering error on the second single.

Which error?
 
I still adore Golden. It was the reboot she needed after the last few Parlo years. I always love DISCO though it wasn’t as immediate for me - it was certainly very rewarding once it clicked.

There are some really good songs on Golden. Many of them sound like demos though. Or maybe that's intentional. I know very little about Nashville and country music.
 
The production on Golden is fine. It has it's moments where it feels cluttered and tinny, but so does Disco. Neither of them are perfectly produced.
Fans just dump on Golden because there are some guitar and banjo twangs and Kylie wore Cowboy boots. It's a straight forward pop record with some Country elements, the same as Disco is a straight forward pop album with Disco elements
 
Hot take:

Kiss me Once was great, as great as Golden and Disco, it was just released at a time where vinyl hadn't really took off, Kylie wasn't hungry and buying multiple formats of the same release only became a thing the past few years. If it had the same treatment as a release it would have sold 70,000 first week and be considered a classic / great album.
 
I like all three albums but would have to rank Golden at the bottom just because I do understand the issues that are brought up all the time in regards to the production end of things but on the other hand, it still contains some classic Kylie tracks and I will never get over how perfect Radio On and Shelby 68 are sandwiched together on the tracklist.
