4 stars KB has maintained that some of the originals were not how she wanted them to be. And now with the recording license to revisit them in one form or another, she demonstrates a new found level of creativity as shown on Aerial and Director's Cut makes for an excellent listening experience. Sure the songs have all been done before but she has stripped them back to an almost minimalist point, and succeeds in every way. " Flower Of the Mountain" probably the highlight and remake of " Sensual World" What a lyricist and such a seductive script. Nice to revisit in a new mould. " Lily" possibly the most up tempo track on the album but there are other gems like the simplistic " Deeper Understanding" and one of my personal favourites " Red Shoes" Her remake of " Rubber Band Girl" seems much better than the original. Where we so often these days find many established artists doing cover versions of other artists and climbing on the orchestral band wagon and singing in vineyards, Kate Bush revisits her own tapestry of sounds and does a damn fine job too. Highly recommended. Notwithstanding a jaw dropping musician guest list too.
