2 stars The Sensual World feels like a companion piece to Hounds of Love, replicating many of the sonic textures of that piece - particularly the less commercial and accessible second side of that album. It also finds Kate in a somewhat subdued mood, and lacks the bursts of frantic energy that broke out here and there on Hounds. The sonic textures presented are intriguing but are also rather unsatisfying, and don't really seem to go anywhere; a cameo on guitar by David Gilmour feels rather lost and out of place, like it was added to the album simply due to a feeling that Bush should probably give her former mentor a platform rather than because there's any musically compelling reason for him to be there.

Most damningly, this is the first Bush album where I can't remember how any of the songs go once I'm done listening. On the whole, far from this woman's best work.
