1 stars After the masterpieces "The Dreaming" and "Hounds Of Love" Kate turned into a more "feminist" approach to her music which probably interested some fans but not this one here. So we listened to "Sensual World" and "Red Shoes" and moved on. Now, in 2011 Kate revisits some of the songs from these 2 albums, for some reason. Do these new stripped down versions make the songs more interesting? No. The dull songs are even duller, and the production is very outdated. I mean, the trio Bulgarka? yes they were a sensation in the 80's but do we really need to listen to them now? Furthermore she's using electric piano on "This woman's work". Who uses electric piano in 2011??? Apart from the two title tracks of these albums, the rest is filler material, back then , and now. Very disappointing. Oh and when amazon advertised for the 3 CD "deluxe edition" I thought well maybe we might get some nuggets or 5.1 versions on the extra CDs (the material on the 2 extra CDs was not detailed). What did we get on these 2 extra CDs? An exact copy of the original "Sensual World" album (not remastered) and a remastered version of "Red Shoes". This further disappointment only makes this collection more irritating. What we need is a remastered version of her first five albums. Hopefully she made her peace with these 2 albums and has moved on herself. Let's see what her new material will sound like (new album next year). Don't disappoint us Kate, we love you.
