Kylie Minogue last year became the first female performer to have a No 1 UK album in four consecutive decades. Here's an overview of her albums which topped the charts in the 80s, the 90s, the noughties and this decade.

Kylie (1988)

The beginning of the Kylie phenomenon. Penned by the 1980s hit-making machine of Stock, Aitken and Waterman, the album featured the hits The Loco-Motion, I Should Be So Lucky and Got to Be Certain, and was certified gold in the US despite being critically panned.

Kylie's Greatest Hits (1992)

Again largely written by Stock, Aitken and Waterman, Kylie's Greatest Hits came just four years after her debut and featured 19 singles from her first four albums, as well as three new tracks. It entered the British charts at No1, becoming her third chart-topping album in the UK.

Fever (2001)

Her eighth album saw the performer moving towards a sexier and edgier form of dance music and she promoted it with her most expensive concert series to date, the KylieFever2002 tour. The album hit No1 in Australia, Austria, Germany, Ireland, and the UK.

Aphrodite (2010)

Three of the four singles from Minogue's 11th studio album have topped the US Billboard dance charts, highlighting the record's return to her club roots. The Aphrodite tour is also one of the performer's most elaborate - and it drops in on Hong Kong on Friday.
