3 stars Modernized mid-80's sophisticated pop. The first song starts promising but never really evolves to a cresciendo and has an unfinished feeling in my opinion. The title track has more magic in it with melody and synths supporting, while singing does not always follow a straight forward melody. "The big sky" was another hit with world beat touches in its percussions.

"Cloudbusting" has a clever cello line in the background. Two tracks "Waking the witch" and "Under the ice" sound synthetic and a bit dull to me.

"Jig of love" takes an unexpected shift to Celtic melody and vitality, great experiment by Kate Bush, while the dramatic "Hello Earth" has a good depth with chorals.

This is a good output but not an essential album.
