2 stars After absolutely adoring Hounds of love and particularly The Dreaming i was expecting good things when i found this at the library. It was a very dissapointing album.

Both discs are absolutely dominated by this awful slushy electronic sounds. It completely lacks drive and urgency and so causes the listener to become rather bored with it. Furthermore it is lyrically quite awful with songs like pi in which she recounts pi for most of the song. Mrs Bartollozi although has a better melody it is again almost laughable in its lyrics as Bush sings of a washing machine. How to be Invisible is the best song on the album with quite a haunting feel but this good track is followed by the almost twee Joanni which is a return to the sloppy electronics.

The second disc seems much the same as the first. Still dominated by boring electronic slush. Although it does have good moments especially in the song Nocturn which becomes quite powerful with soaring harmonies. One of the few good moments in the album.

All in all a very underwhelming and tiresome album made particularly dissapointing when seen in comparison to the excellence of her earlier work. I give it two stars as it does have the occasional good moment and isn't actually painful to listen to, just profoundly boring.

Psychedelia | 2/5 |
