4 stars I think the problem with this album is that it sounds too much like the debut. To me it sounds like KATE BUSH took all the songs from her first album THE KICK INSIDE and reassembled them into new creations. Apparently this doesn't hold well with most as told by the lower ratings and I have to agree that I prefer the debut as well, but not by much. Those songs may be a tad catchier but this is a great album itself. I love most of these songs and even though I can tell which song sounds like certain ones from the debut, it doesn't really matter. I'm not against using a successful musical formula and getting a little mileage out of it.

With songs as good as these she probably could have gotten another few albums out of this sound and considering Kate was only 19 at the time of both these albums being released I think I can cut her a little slack. This music is every bit as ingenious as the debut and not just simply rushed out shlop to cash in. Just listen to the arrangements. Geez, they're brilliant! Like I said, I do prefer the debut because many of those songs are off the charts spectacular and it was the first album I heard. This doesn't have the surprise value of the debut but it sure comes close to the quality overall.
