4 stars Kate Bush has update the sound on her third album in favour of more synths, textures and less natural piano playing. Songwriting remained equally strong and instrumental performance have moved a bit towards being more progressive.

The first song "Babooshka" is one of her most famous songs, very strong in melody and curious rhythm. All this packed in just a bit over 3 minutes.

"Delius (Song of summer)" is one of the biggest departures from the 70's sound of Bush with Collins'-like electronic drums and little vocals.

"All we ever look for" has Japanese hints and a nice motive prog-pop motive, 80's Genesis or Camel wouldn't be ashamed for such song either. "Egypt" offers very good progressive tetures and synths, with even some echoes of late fusion. "Violin" is of the hardest Bush songs and not far away from a combination of punk and violin type of Curved Air music.

"Army dreamers" has a clever 3/4 rhythm and instrumentation. "Breathing" is a soaring lightweight ballad.
