5.0 out of 5 stars This Woman's Work, November 20, 2000
This review is from: Hounds of Love (Audio CD)
Here's an SAT-ism to tell you how I feel about Kate Bush. Joni Mitchell: acoustic guitar::Kate Bush:keyboard
This is really two mini-albums in one: Hounds of Love & The Ninth Wave. Hounds of Love is a 5-song EP, and The Ninth Wave is a 7-song conceptual piece. I've always been a big fan of Hounds of Love, and have always found the songs to be her most accesible, and for 10 years I've loved the first side of the album. I don't think I ever really fully appreciated the genius of The Ninth Wave, though, and its really taken me this long to love it.
I first listened to this album in 1990 when I was 20, and The Ninth Wave was almost intimidating to me. I could never get into the many layer of sound and sound effects, but I finally picked it up again after 10 years. And I'm really disapointed with the impatience of a 20 year old who never gave it the chance it deserved. As my musical tastes matured, I've gone to look back over all the artists who helped form my preferences, and I can see how much of an influence Kate Bush has had on me and on the artists that I love.
There is no way that most people can appreciate Kate's works today. Only the most precocious of teenagers or the most diversified of adult tastes could really understand the talent that went into making this album. Now I'm hooked on Kate Bush again, but this time the addiction is deeper and stronger. I hope there are more artists beyond Tori Amos who count Kate amongst their influences, because we need more music like this today.
