3 stars 1982 and another strong release from Kate Bush. The album definitely showed Kate Bush at her most eccentric to date which did not win over too many new legions of fans. But if I had to compare this to The Kick Inside from 1978 The Dreaming would show a much more mature work and there are some of us who perhaps prefer her more eccentric side anyway.There is that strong Celtic feel to the album as one will find on parts of Sensual World.Ian Bairnson on guitar most notable for work on Alan Parson's Project.Eberhard Weber on bass and Stuart Elliot on the drum kit, not to mention Rolf Harris an almost everpresent playing didgeridoo, hence the Australian comparisons. A great concept album again and the major highlights would have to be the unnerving ' Sat In Your Lap', the brilliant ' Suspended In Gaffa' and the scary ' Get Out Of My House' Kate Bush at her mosted experimental to date in the vocalizations. Three and a half stars.
