Thumbs up About KT aka Katie, Kate Bush in fact!

Well, after listening to KT's new album 5-6 times, I am stunned. Is it just me or is that lady just so unique as I think?? This new album is just about the best CD released for years! Very mature kind of adult semi-classical pop! Not easy accesible but after a few listens the album just get stuck in your mind I have to admit, I have been a fan of Kate Bush since "The kick inside" and loved all her albums. But the new one is just sooo good I go dreaming when I hear it That lady really sings for us Any oppinions, beside mine?? At least you Pink Floyd fans should love this album Kate, I am all yours It took 12 years to make this album, but it was worth the wait For you HIFI-nuts, the sound is very, very good indeed!!

Who has time for music?

When all amplifier outputs drive scopes and multimeters ....

Is there something wrong with your multimeter steenoe?
Did you smoke your dummy load?

So now, you have to listen to music with loudspeakers connected.
Poor chap!

Good album. Felt like she'd never been away when I listened.

I'm not. Well, not entirely. The Kick Inside was released the year I was born. But I was brought up on a diet of Kate's music along with Led Zep, Dylan, Floyd, Captain Beefheart etc.. The music on those albums are some of my earliest memories.

First Kate's song that I ever heard was of course "Running up that hill" - it was catchy, slightly unusual pop song, but it was still pop - and at that time I expected that Kate Bush is some mainstream pop singer with few crazy escapades - but I wanted to be sure, just in case that I don't miss maybe something interesting so I borrowed two CD's : "Whole story" (Best off) and "The Dreaming".

And then I realized that I was totally wrong:she's crazy singer with little pop escapades fortunately.

"The Dreaming" is great album IMO, someone tried to described her voice as "Bjork meets Tori Amos" combination - that's maybe closest description of that album - crazy but again totaly musical.

Her music and singing style at first glance seems slightly wierd and unusual, but after few listenings everything fits perfectly.

Hi Bubba. Yes you are right, the Dreaming is an absolute favourite of mine too Love Hounds is normally rated as "The" album to have, but I cant agree. It has a bit too much of 80's sound. Its great allright, but not the best. The 80's by the way did produce one thing though: Loads of bad music!!!! Its the worst decade in the music history, at least to my ears. You really had to cling on to a few artists, hoping for their next release
Well, to cheer you up, here is a pic of my complete Kate Bush studio album collection Nice view, right??
