5 stars Round four and Kate Bush's Hounds Of Love will land happily in your lap wearing the essential tag. This is where Kate struck pure platinum in terms of concept and composition. An extraordinarily beautiful piece of music from the opening ' Running Up That Hill', a sombre reminder that it requires a tireless engine to make it through life ( er thanks for that one Kate Bush), but she was never one to not tell it like it really is, the excited and celebratory ' Big Sky' kind of reminds me of watching a kid open some Christmas presents and the fantasy epic ' Cloudbusting' that closes side one. Side 2 is one long piece interconnected suite of music The Ninth Wave where Under Ice and Waking The Witch are spine chilling to say the least, you almost want to skip to the end in anticipation of the end result. Like an epic book, this I repeat is a masterpiece from the 80's archives and sounds as fresh today as it did 20 odd years ago.
Chris S | 5/5 |
