Kate Bush
CD Reviews
Aerial
Review by Steve Alspach
I'm in year 19 of a 3-year sabbatical from graduate school, so I can't blame Kate Bush for wanting to take a year off and and missing the deadline, so to speak. Kate was feeling a bit burned out after "The Red Shoes" and the accompanying video "The Line, the Cross, and the Curve."

Hounds of Love
Review by Steve Alspach
Kate Bush found her true ground in 1982's "The Dreaming" which was her first self-produced effort. As inventive and creative as that album was, "Hounds of Love" takes that creativity a giant step further.

Lionheart
Review by Gary Hill
Kate Bush’s second release, this showed hints of some of the powerful music that would show up in her catalog down the road. It’s a strong disc, but not every track is great.

The Dreaming
Review by Steve Alspach
There were signs of Kate Bush's musical maturity in 1980's "Never For Ever" but not too many people may have been expecting the curveball she threw with 1982's "The Dreaming." Often referred to as the "She's gone mad" album, "The Dreaming" is far removed from "The Kick Inside," the 1978 album that introduced the helium-tinged starry-eyed waif to the world.

The Whole Story
Review by Gary Hill
As is generally the case with compilation discs, this is sort of a mixed bag of tricks.

Kate Bush - A Life Of Surprises DVD
Review by Gary Hill
The problem with unauthorized documentaries is you never really get a lot of real material (be it interview or performance) with the artist.
