I´m falling more and more in love with Bush´s music. It´s the female response to Gabriel, in my opinion of course, and I even like her music more!

I vote for Hounds of love... probably the best "pop" album everrrrrrrr, and definitly the best album to come out of the ´80

Sensual World is my favorite mainly due to the presence of bassists Eberhard Weber, John Giblin and Mick Karn, three virtuosos of that much maligned instrument. It's also the least "commercial" of her works.

My "favourite" KT album goes on rotation - at the moment it's Lionheart, previously it was The Dreaming

The Dreaming pretty clearly. Hounds of Love could be better with a little less plastic sound.

Definitely the Dreaming, the first Kate Bush that I listened to, and still one of my all time favorite albums. it ranks right up there with the likes of sgt. Pepper. of all her albums only Hounds of Love comes close IMHO

Her first two seem more well regarded by many others more so than by myself. My favorites are all that came after.  Of those, the second LP side of Hounds just moves me more than all the rest. 

My introduction to Kate was Suspended In Gaffa, which I heard on a college radio station, Georgia Tech's if memory serves.  It gave me goosebumps despite the fact that I heard it in mono on a crappy car radio driving home from work one day.

Pretty much after the dreaming I would get her albums as they came out, so I can't help but listen to any of those and get reminded of my life at those moments in time.

Kate is one of the primary reasons I don't consider the '80's to be a prog wasteland.  And she belongs in crossover rather than related.

Hounds of Love for me, but she's scarcely put a foot wrong in her entire career (although Red Shoes was a bit of a disappointment).
 
I might give Aeriel a spin this afternoon.

I'd say The Dreaming is my favourite, but Hounds of Love is just as perfect.

Followed by Hounds of love, The Kick Inside & Never For Ever.

My favourite has always been The Kick Inside, for me is impossible to choose the second place between the other ones, though The Red Shoes would be my last option.
