4 stars "The Sensual World": "Mmmmmhhhhh...YES!" The keyboards style and the miscellaneous acoustic elements involved make this record to be almost classified in the New Age style. The keyboards, rather ambient, do not take too much room, so that one can really appreciate the acoustic elements, made of beautiful strings arrangements, uilleann pipes, cello, viola, Celtic harp, piano and percussions. Kate's vocals are slightly less nervous here than on her previous records, so that it fits better with the more mellow tracks. There are some electric guitar parts played by David Gilmour, which is not irrelevant although its solid rock sound. Just expect something VERY solid and refined from the fretless bass department, knowing the musicians involved are Eberhard Weber and Mick Karn, real masters of the fretless instrument. Again here, there are tons of excellent backing vocals, often sounding very exotic, in the Bulgarian style. "This woman's work" is absolutely OUTSTANDING: it is a very poignant & delicate track made of piano, orchestration and miscellaneous female vocals!

Rating: 4.5 stars
