It started off very well with Confide In Me, which absolutely rehabilitated Kylie's reputation with listeners who had loved and left her behind while they went into high school. But Impossible Princess, while being a huge favourite of mine, also took Kylie too far down the alternative road without any concessions to the pure pop sound/visuals that made her a force in the charts. I think Kylie is always at her most successful when she's putting out unpretentious uninhibited pure pop songs. That's the Kylie people adore. When she puts out songs about rare type fonts, that's when she loses the general audience. For me, indie Kylie was a necessary detour that helped give her the indie audience that would join her established (and lost) pop audience, both of which would join to herald in her Fever imperial phase.
