For a minute, I thought you were talking about Disney films.  (Or is that the joke?)

Kate Bush is an artist I admire more than I enjoy but I both admire and enjoy PGs work, and Up is phenomenal recording.

Dang, I have no clue. Whenever I listen to one of these records, I seem to compare it to the other one, as both generally have the same pros and cons. Neither are really musical or soulful compared to their earlier stuff, and both were somewhat disappointing for the decade-long build-ups. However, the maturity on both of them is so damn endearing, and it feels like I will grow into "Aerial" and "Up" as I get older. Honestly, I could talk about these albums for hours, but I'd keep going to and fro when picking a favourite, so no vote.

I was thinking "Arial" from the Little Mermaid.  I know it's spelled differently, but I really did first think you were pitting two Disney movies against each other.

To think one could go about comparing the two.

Been listening to Aerial A LOT lately (after finally acquiring it earlier this year) and have come to absolutely adore it--especially the second disc, the "Sky of Honey" suite. Given the time and attention it really sucks the listener in. Up is pretty good--especially the amazing "Sky Blue" and "Signal to Noise."
