Oh, the places these shoes will take you..., Aug 16 2009
Kate Bush's album 'The Red Shoes' is an eclectic mixture of musical styles and emotional states that offers a powerful yet accessible sonic experience (particularly to those previously unfamiliar with "this woman's work"). From the joyous and imaginative playfulness of "Rubberband Girl," "Eat the Music," and "The Red Shoes," to the sometimes painfully poignant emotion evoked in "And So is Love," "Moments of Pleasure," "The Song of Solomon," and "You're the One," to the intense fear, abandon, fascination, frustration, anger, and confusion expressed in "Lily," "Constellation of the Heart," "Big Stripey Lie," and "Why Should I Love You?" Bush provides each listener with a cornucopia of musical nourishment that proves unfailingly satisfying. So if you're looking for music that can make you dance/cry/eat/dream/scream/reminisce all at once, why not "stretch" yourself a bit and try on these red shoes?
