2 stars This disc was released by Columbia Records as an in-store play promotion to go along with the release of "The Sensual World", even though there is actually only one song from that album on this short collection.

The disc opens with the title track from the album. Now, Kate Bush has always had one of the sexiest voices in all of the music world, and hearing her repeatedly coo "Mmmmmmm... yes" (from James Joyce's "Ulysses") is almost too much for any male to bear. The music is typical Irish-tinged pop that Bush has used frequently on her albums.

"Be Kind To My Mistakes", from a film called "Castaways" is a somewhat forgettable tune which sounds like it was probably a song left off of "Hounds Of Love", as "I'm Still Waiting" sound like it was recorded, and left off of (for good reason), this latest album.

"Ken", from a comic strip film (?) called "G.L.C." is a power anthem about a guy named Ken, who apparently is the head of the G.L.C., whatever that is. Aside from a nice primal scream at the beginning, there is nothing inspired in this piece.

The collection closes with an instrumental mix of "The Sensual World". Not too bad, especially because they mix in that "Mmmmmmm... yes" towards the end.

Now excuse me for a few minutes. :)

2 stars 5 things here on this release. 1st up is "The Sensual World" from the album of the same name. Great album and a great tune. Goes better with the complete album than as just a single. The second song is "Be Kind To My Mistakes" from a film called Castaway. Driving beat with background Kate chanting and the usual Kate fronting vocals. Not too special. On any typical Kate Bush release this would be a weak track. "I'm Still Waiting" I think is also available on a box set of her work. Forgettable and definately a "b-sider". #4- "Ken" is a 80's type screamer with background chanting type vocals. Not sure what the heck this is about. Must be about my brother Ken. An instrumental track of "The Sensual World" rounds this out. I much prefer any of her albums to this. It's not bad, but there is really nothing special or essential on this release. 2 stars.
