4 stars Lovely , lovely stuff! It was a long time coming but I am glad to say my investement in the Sensual World paid off. A more mature album than Hounds of Love makes this concept album a strong effort from Kate Bush. The opening title track gets down to business straight away as KB pulls no punches about the art of seduction. As other reviewers have noted this is an intensley personal album and I guess listeners will either love it or hate it. There is a lot of violin playing throughout well delivered by Nigel Kennedy. Davey Spillanes uillean pipe playing is a must listen. KB is often abundantly supported by top class guest players. The ubiquitous John Giblin ( Simple Mind's fame) on bass and guitar by the one and only David Gilmour.Stuart Elliot on drums as usual and the other Floyd connection being the late Michael Kamen on orchestral arrangements. This is a great concept piece and needs to be listened to in it's entirety hence splitting out the songs individually makes for hard work. I highly recommend anyone getting this who is into the more vulnerable, sensuous, fragile and emotional side of Kate Bush. ' The Fog' and ' Heads we are Dancing' are other highlights. A worthy four stars.
