5 stars 'The Dreaming' is undoubtedly the strangest and most adventurous album of KB's career.

Utilising treated ethnic rhythms (a strong Celtic and Australian influence) and, then, cutting-edge Fairlight technology, in some ways, the album is a more extreme and emotionally edgy companion to Gabriel's '3' and '4'.

'All The Love' and 'Houdini' are unnervingly beautiful highlights, while 'Get Out Of My House' (featuring a great, Fripp-inspired, guitar line) sounds as possessed as the subject matter it deals with.

In conclusion, 'The Dreaming' is an astonishingly fresh and genuinely Progressive statement from 1982 that not only still surprises today, but alongside the likes of Gabriel, Sylvian, Eno, Talking Heads, Talk Talk, The Blue Nile and the reformed King Crimson, suggests that the 'decade of evil' was just as creative in its own way as the 1960s and 1970s.
