Ultimate Kylie (DVD) was simultaneously released with the Ultimate Kylie greatest hits compilation of Kylie Minogue, containing all the music videos of the songs, only with the exception of "Giving You Up" (which at the time had not been filmed). It also contains Minogue's performance at the 2002 BRIT Awards of "Can't Get Blue Monday Out of My Head": this was a mix of her song "Can't Get You Out of My Head" and New Order's "Blue Monday". Early versions of the UK DVD are known to suffer from the DVD rot phenomena, after a short period of time, where the playing surface becomes incredibly cloudy or forms a 'cracked' pattern. EMI UK have not publicly addressed this issue. However, they offered free replacements to those who returned their damaged copies. The DVD also contains "on-screen lyrics".

Single alterations[edit]

Unreleased songs[edit]

Promotional advertisements for the album and DVD claimed that Ultimate Kylie would contain every single Minogue had released in Australia and the UK. However, several songs included on the cd release were not featured on the DVD. From her debut album Kylie, "It's No Secret" and "Turn It Into Love" were not featured, although no music video for "Turn It Into Love" was ever made. Most of her singles from Let's Get To It were missing, only having "Give Me Just A Little More Time" featured on the DVD. From her album Greatest Hits, "What Kind Of Fool (Heard All That Before)" was omitted. From her last album with Deconstruction, PWL and BMG, Impossible Princess, "Some Kind Of Bliss" and her Australian single "Cowboy Style" did not feature on the DVD. From her first album with Parlophone, Light Years, the video for the selected territories single "Your Disco Needs You" was not included. "Butterfly" was only released in the USA as a single and no video was made for it. The rest of the missing videos, except "Your Disco Needs You", are on Minogue's DVD album Greatest Hits 1987–1999.

Video edits[edit]

"Can't Get You Out of My Head" has been edited as a radio edit as it is shorter than the one released online. As "Giving You Up" had an exception for not including in the DVD, it had a sample instrumental intro on the menu page. The Australian edition of "I Should Be So Lucky" was not released on the DVD, but used the other edit version. The Australian version entitled "Locomotion" was not released, later was released as the 1988 version as "The Loco-Motion". "On A Night Like This" was also edited to the video edition, as the album edition was more up for release.

Dooyoo 4/5 stars[2]

Amazon.co.uk got an average of 3.5 out of five stars as reviewers said that "she had composed her most greatest hits in one DVD". However, one reviewer did catch the radio edit of Cant Get You Out Of My Head saying it was "disappointing as a cut edit".[3] Some reviewers were disappointed because it did not feature all of her singles. With an average rating of 3.5, Dooyoo.co.uk had critical acclaim as the same as Amazon, giving it a four out of five stars.
