All time Classic
Posted by Play.com Reviewer, 21/09/2012 09:36:03
It can be difficult to categorise all time classic but this album is nothing less than a classic from the last century. If people arent listening to this in another 50 years then it would be criminal. I bought this on cassette when it was released. I replaced it 3 times on cassette and then bought the fab extended CD version. If you only know the singles then your missing what is simply musical genius.

Although as a massive Kate Bush fan I'm slightly biased, this album has been acclaimed by critics as her best album to date and I'd find it hard to disagree.
Apart from the chart releases and outstanding accompanying videos, the final few songs (the 'b' side of the vinyl record) all tell the tale of a girl lost at sea and imagining all kinds of weird and wonderful things.
I listen to this album over and over again, and never tire of it. Kate's talent and strangely insightful imagination shine through in droves...each and every song is a masterpiece and a testament to her creativity. 'Under Ice' is positively haunting!
This album was the first that Kate produced herself and doesn't it show! The time she spent away from her fans was well spent as this album is nothing short of a masterpiece!
My husband, as he says, can 'take her or leave her', but even he loves this album! So, if you've never been a great fan of Kate you may enjoy this as it's missing the trademark 'wailing' of her earlier work (not that I'd complain about that...it's all good to me!) and is very easy listening.
So the next time you're looking for something to do the ironing to, this might be just the thing!

First of the Rating should be%star and totally unique
The word genius is used to too often but the concept idea of a girl drowning and the way it is percieved is mind blowing the greatest British female song composer off all time
By the way lionheart should be Englands National Anthem
Kate is a TALENT that has no contemparies
