Presented as an audacious, multi-media theatrical performance entitled Before The Dawn, the month-long, sold-out, 22-date residency at London's Hammersmith Apollo was an unqualified triumph.Now, to the delight of Kate Bush fans around the world, comes the audio document of those mesmerizing, historic shows. Before The Dawn will be available as a 3-CD set, a 4-disc vinyl box set or a 29- track digital album. The sound quality is almost unparalleled; nothing has been re-recorded or overdubbed.

While BtD was designed to be a complete audio and visual work, Kate fans unlucky to not see her live will not hobbled in their revelry with this release, rich in new interpretation, instrumentation and insight. However with this said, one can only hope the DVD will be released soon of this once in a lifetime experience that sold out 22 shows at Hammersmith in 15 minutes.
In conclusion, OMG GUYS, NEW KATE. OMG!
If you are a fan, get it. If you have no idea who I'm talking about, start with her original releases, I suggest Hounds of Love as a starting point, and be prepared for all your expectations from music to change as you work through her discography. You must internalize Kate's life work before approaching BtD.
Bring on the DVD.

Her voice is huskier, her delivery mellower, warmly mature, but the intensity is still there, even more so. It is like she gives us permission to feel the drama she expresses and we usually have to keep contained. She takes the dramatic effect over the top, to arrive not at some corny-cheesy commercial place but on a higher, more vibrant, more intense plane. Not every song effected me so, but many times during these three discs I was moved deeply, perhaps reaching the peak of sublimity on "The Morning Fog", and intensity on "Aerial."
Easily a 5 star essential recommendation for her many old fans, and it's sure to create new ones. Something undefinable and remarkable about this woman…

Typisch Kate halt. Mit Tawny Moon Bertie McIntosh's grandioser Einstieg in die Musikwelt. Ganz die Mama!
I hope one day a DVD/BluRay will follow...
