Dannii Minogue's 2007 disc Unleashed is not quite a new album, not quite a hits collection: it's a collection of remixes of hit singles and unreleased material, most of it from the early years of the 2000s. Some of these remixes are new, some are mixes that were heard in clubs instead of radio, and the end result is a bit curious -- Unleashed is familiar enough to be a hits collection, but it feels more like a new album, and a lengthy one at that, as it weighs in at 18 tracks. Despite its length, Unleashed keeps up its momentum precisely because it cherry-picks the best of her singles, offers them in good Euro-disco mixes, and blends in worthy unheard tracks. It's enough of the new to satisfy dedicated fans and enough of the familiar to please casual fans, although they may be better served by The Hits & Beyond, which contains original hit versions of many of these songs.
