4 stars Iīm really pleased for being the first in making a review here of this wonderful album...

The Kate Bushīs music itīs very special, because she has a unique and really good voice. She learned to sing bel-canto since she was a girl before moving to the pop and rock world. Her music is very personal, like her lyrics, because apart of sing and play some instruments, she is very good songwriter...

This music can be called prog rock, but I think itīs just pop with some symphonic arragements. The piano has a very important rol in this album. And songs like the very famous Wuthering Heights have very good orchestral arragements.

"The Kick Inside" has a long story behind. It took three years in being completed, since 1975 to 1978, but the Kate Bushīs label (EMI) waited patiently to the whole album being finished. And it worthed the waiting, because songs like the mentioned Wuthering Heights and The Man with the Child in His Eyes reached high places in the charts, and the critics were very favourable.

The songs not included in "The Kick Inside" went to the Kateīs following record, "Lionheart", an album with a sound very similar to "The Kick Inside", but not as good in my opinion.

Best songs: all of them!

Maybe itīs not a masterpiece of progressive music, but itīs a great album of "symphonic pop" music. 4 well deserved stars!
