Review by Matti
3 stars For the B sides of the singles from her third album Never For Ever (1980) Kate Bush wrote non-album songs in opposition to all previous singles. Army Dreamers was the third and final single from NFE, and it peaked at 16 in the UK single charts in October 1980.

The brightly melodic and delicate song is basically a waltz. The lyrics deal with a mother grieving for her young adult son killed on military manoeuvres. The background vocals are easily identified as David Gilmour's.

'Delius' also comes from Never For Ever. It is a beautiful and seducingly sensual tribute to English composer Frederick Delius, and it features only a little of lyrics. Very charming! 'Passing Through Air' is one of her many non-album tracks of the time. It's only about two minutes long and yet it barely manages to live up to that length. Starting quite promisingly, it soon gets trapped into the boring chorus. Sad to say, that makes it a terribly half baked little throwaway song.
