I never rate a musician. What do I know? but what I do know is this woman is Electrifying, in a time when there wasn't much to the menu.

It took me forever to find this CD in stores (it's surprisingly difficult to find Kate Bush CDs in Canada) and I was not disappointed when I sat down and listened to it. It flows very well, and may even be my favourite Kate Bush album to date (followed by The Kick Inside, and yeah, The Red Shoes --don't judge me, it's Kate at her most vulnerable, I think it's good).

1. "Babooshka" -- So very catchy! A great start to the album and I find myself humming this song a lot without even realizing it. Also has some good lyrics to boot.

2. "Delius (Song of Summer)" -- My least favourite song on the album, it's a bit dull. To this day I still don't even know what it's about.

3. "Blow Away (For Bill)" -- I really like this song, favourite part is definitely "Don't bump me, don't dump me back there. Please don't thump me, Don't bump me, I want to stay here." She has a wonderful voice!

4. "All We Ever Look For" -- This song reminded me of an N64 Mario game soundtrack at the very beginning and it took me a while to warm up to, but now it's probably one of my favourites. Interesting instrumentals, good lyrics!

5. "Egypt" -- Not my favourite, but still very interesting. I have to say that I'm biased against this song because I saw the video of it on the Christmas 1979 special and I was almost in tears from laughing at the weird costume. I love you Kate Bush.

6. "The Wedding List" -- I LOVE THIS SONG! My second favourite song on this album: awesome lyrics, story, vocals, guitar, bass, everything!

7. "Violin" -- Favourite song on the album by far. It gets me so pumped up and full of energy because it's so whacko! The shrieking is priceless, and listening to this song always cheers me up.

one of my fave kate albums, there's echoes of the mad geniuus within her work, which doesn't always seem to work advantageously. my fave songs are "babooshka" as i think this is such an imaginative & creative song, another fave is "egypt" but all the tracks pretty much flow together collectively so is hard to differentiate individually, also "the wedding list" is excellent, tho at times her shrieking vocals can be a little offputting, & finally:
"army dreamers" and "breathing" are two of the most amazing & beautiful songs ever, along with "experiment IV" almost protest songs that hit the spot, some of kate's best songs.

An early indication of the genius that Kate Bush would become. The Lyrics speak with wit, ecocation, and provocation: repressed paedophilia and death from radioactive fallout are examples of the weird and varied sources Kate can seamlessly draw from. The music itself is sometimes a drawback: although it is obviously more layered and textured the experimental whims are sometimes caught in the stylistic trappings that defined her earliest work. This means that some tracks don't work as well as they should and others are just lightweight and boring. Still, there are mammoth songs here that provide far more than just cold comfort consolation.
Best Tracks: Beathing, Babooshka, The Infant Kiss.

Never For Ever followed the sweet and mellow Lionheart. This time around, Kate Bush's entry into weird sounds and vocals is in the making. And this album came out in 1980. Pretty progressive and avant-garde-ish. This tops Lionheart and The Kick Inside in its sheer innovation of strange sounds, vocals that reach a manic frenzy, and some sobering songs on social issues.
"Babooshka" tells the story of a woman who tests her husband's fidelity by writing him anonymous letters, disguising herself as a younger her, and seeing if he'll go through with an adulterous affair with his own wife. The piano is struck forcefully during the verses, before the electric guitar riffs kick in the prechorus and chorus. And what's with the glass-shattering special effect towards the end?
"Blow Away�Eis a showcase for Kate's voice, which has her singing about a man too obsessed with music. She wonders where the music he plays goes. "Surely not with his soul?"she surmises.
The slow but brisk piano number, "All We Ever Look For," sporting an accompanying whistle, is another highlight here. Weird stuff: in the second verse, there's a cookie monster sounding growl that comes in every fourth beat. Another open door is what "all we ever look for," where one might find "the truth," "a little hug," "our own tomb," and other things. There are some sound effects that come in when someone walks down the hall and opens doors in search of that something.
"Egypt" is of someone falling in love with the ambience of Egypt, be it the shifting sands, the pyramids, and the Nile. The rhythmic melody is like a ship that keeps time with the beater, and towards the end, a weird cacophony of multiple voices comes in.
