I have all of her albums, a couple of singles, a boot DVD and a 4-CD boot with her live stuff, soundtrack work, and non-LP songs that were lifted from the box set "This Woman's Work".

Her album 'The Dreaming' is a fun listen and 'Never for Ever' has some good stuff on it as well. Hell, all her albums have a little something special on them.

In my humble opinion, Kate Bush is a genius. 'Nuff said. Big smile

Yup.  She created her own world.  Only a small percentage of bands, progressive or otherwise, pull that off.

Best pop female vocalist ever.

Have not listened to her for a while - well since overdosing on "Aerial". I have all her albums apart from "This Woman's Work". Her strongest album imo is "The Dreaming" followed by "Aerial" and "The Hounds of Love". Really though, I like everything she has done, and I am hoping for more releases in the not too distant future.

The Dreaming - best album of the 80s. It's responsible for my most obsessive listening habit since In Rainbows came out. 
butts, lol

Her voice gets on my nerves, personally.

But maybe someday I will give her a listen and figure out what all the fuss is about, y'know? Never say 'never' with me. I tend to almost always enjoy an artist if I give them enough chances. Wink

Still, I think if we're gonna talk about female vocalists, Tori Amos is infinitely better than Miss Bush, but I guess that's a matter of opinion.

So I'm guessing we won't be seeing it on DVD any time soon.  Wish they'd put out her video collection on DVD.

Except in this case I think she's right.

Eh, I've probably posted this before, but The Red Shoes was a big a hit with me as everything before the first two albums, not that I don't like them.  I think to really appreciate The Red Shoes, you had to seen The Line, The Cross, and The Curve.  I went to see that at a theater in the mall (Phipps Plaza) with my last girlfriend before my wife.  The power went off on the way in, or maybe we were already seated, so we had to evacuate.  The power came back on as we were leaving.  It went back on and what do you know?  When we got back in to see it, the power goes off in an early scene of the movie.  LOL

Only "Moving" when she opens her live concert DVD.  I get choked up with emotion at the beginning and end of that show.  Best live video ever. 

If only those EMI a-holes would release the whole thing on DVD, including the Peter Gabriel stuff, I could die happy.
