3 stars Kate Bush has put out two very gifted albums in her 20th year of life. They show how mature her songwriting and musicianship was. The second album showcases more sophisticated rhythms that are sometimes irregular.

The first ambitious "Symphony in blue" has nice guitar/piano (both electric/acoustic) textures a bit of rhythm experimentation in pop-sense. "In search of Peter Pan" has Banks influenced synth chords.

"Don't push your foot on the heartbrake" has some Peter Gabriel feeling. "Oh England my lionheart" is a soaring piano and vocal led track with flutes background. "Fullhouse" is the most progressive song on the album with late 70's prog feeling of nostalgy, complex rhytms. "Kashka from Baghdad" strangely does not has any oriental influences, it's a normal piano song.The catchy "Coffee homeground" has an old 20-30's feeling with marching pace - one of the highlights of the album.

"Hammer Horror" has a dramatic start and end, its combination of electronic drums at one point with more conventional songwriting is interesting.
