4 stars "Never For Ever" is Kate Bush's third album, and by my ears, her first truly progressive offering. While there was a sprinkling of prog in her earlier releases, this is where it comes to full fruition. Her orchestrations and instrumentations have matured here into a beautiful, lush, and highly inventive form, and her use of her amazing voice has greatly expanded since the last release.

Kate Dark side is expanded here in songs like "The Wedding List", with Bush portaying a woman killing a man at his wedding for revenge, the killing herself. Two other songs venture into political areas. "Army Dreamers" is about a young man killed at war, and "Breathing", about the aftermath of a nuclear blast. Who but Kate Bush could make a song about dying from ingesting fallout sexy? "In...Out...In...Out...In...Out...In...Out........"

And for great videos, look for "Babooshka" and "Army Dreamers", both on YouTube.
