4 stars This is definitely one of the best records from Kate Bush: the main attraction is the omnipresent melodic piano and her highly pitched, sensual and emotive lead vocals. There are many OUTSTANDING backing vocals, as usual. Some good subdued electric guitars give a more rock dimension to the album. The bass is quite loud and not minimalist at all: it gives depth the the overall sound. Quite progressive, more than her first album, the songs are a little rhythm changing, each note is placed at the right place, and the ensemble is elaborated enough.

The tracks are delicate, graceful, magic, more mellow and fluid than usual, and rather relaxing, especially "In search of Peter Pan", "Wow", "Oh England my Lionheart" "In the warm room" and "Kashka from Bagdad". The sublime sequence "In search of Peter Pan"- "Wow" reminds me the inseparable block "Hotel hobbies"-"Warm wet circles"-"At that time of the night" on Marillion's "Clutching at Straws". Just listen to the beautiful horns & saloon piano arrangements on "Coffe homeground": it has a very European style!

Rating: 4.5 stars
