Kate Bush has only written 2 big prog epics, and both are vastly different from each other. The Ninth Wave is more eclectic and varied, while An Endless Sky of Honey is more relaxed and ambient; both are quite interesting musical journeys and worth checking out if by chance you haven't heard them yet. I personally prefer The Ninth Wave, it's always been one of my all-time favorite pieces of music. Which one is your favorite?

I went with Aerial.  I adore Hounds of Love too, but listening to Aerial (and in particular Sky of Honey) was pretty mind-blowing for me, having had to wait so long for a new release from her - not knowing, even, if there ever would be another release.

Very few pieces of music bring tears to my eyes, but listening to disc 2 of Aerial, from start to finish, will do it to me.

The Ninth Wave for me; it's just more dramatic and exciting. Although I like Sky of Honey, too.

Only know the Ninth Wave, but the ending (The Morning Fog) is one of my fave Kate songs ever Heart

I could never get into her music, no matter how much I tried.

Absolutely Ninth Wave! And "Before the Dawn"-version is even better, itīs also longer than original (Kate added great spoken parts into it, as she says itīs now kind of radio-thriller!)

Hounds Of Love is one of my favourite albums. Genius at work. The Ninth Wave is superb. Aerial is my third favourite by her (The Dreaming in second). Well worth the 13 year wait (or whatever it was) but pitting it against HOL is not a fair fight!.

Both are excellent, but Ninth Wave is incredible.

Ultimately bored by endless ecstasy!

No contest really, The Ninth Wave.
Sky of Honey is much improved in the live album version but still not up to the epic standards of The Ninth Wave.
