4 stars This is one of the most progressive albums of Kate Bush: when someone questions the progressive dimension of her music, then this person should carefully listen to this album: this record is sufficient enough to classify her music as, at least, "prog related". There are omnipresent excellent piano parts. Kate's lead vocals are colorful, nervous and never monotonous, as always. The bass is quite present and complex enough, sometimes fretless ("Breathing", "Babooshka"). The electric guitar is sometimes surprisingly hard rock, but usually it is not too exuberant. There are very good keyboards and they are often subtly played in the background, however not really floating: a pleasant mix of piano, Fender Rhodes and some more modern floating keyboards like the Fairlight and Prophet synthesizers. "Egypt" has a funny keyboards pattern a la Tomita. The Moog on "Wedding list" sounds a bit like the "Brand X" of the seventies. For the first time, Kate's music is psychedelic, a bit like 10 CC's "I'm not in love", on the last part of "Breathing": interesting!
