I was quite dissappointed with this album the first time I listened to it. It seemed to lack that power Kate had came up with in The Dreaming and Hounds of Love and I quite quickly lost my interest on this album and it rested a long time on my shelf. I also thought this way about The Sensual World, until I fell in love with it and after that I gave another try for The Red Shoes and truly fell in love with it too. I just love that Kate uses the Trio Bulgarka in this album like she did in The Sensual World and they sound even better on The Red Shoes. That's why the Song of Solomon has become one of my favourite Kate Bush's songs.

The precocious title of the review refers to this newly remastered edition of Kate Bush's understated 1993 album The Red Shoes. Having owned an original copy of the album, I thoroughly enjoyed it but I always thought the mastering was awful as the songs sounded quite distorted or "edgy" as Mrs Bush described it. This remastering gives the sound a depth of clarity that was missing from the original. And that has given the album a new lease of life. The album itself, is not my favourite of Kate Bush's catalogue but I've often played to my heart's and vocal content, often to the annoyance of others. So to any budding Kate Bush fans, The Red Shoes should be in your personal collections!

Like most I was a little confused at this CD being the only album remastered,of the four Kate Bush has put out on her own label. However to be fair this is a re-master of the analogue recording. As it states in the sleeve notes Kate is not a lover of the Digital recording method, hurah. This is not to say that this CD does not sound fantastic in does. The clarity is warm and the drums leap out at you and it all sounds fresh and not sharp, and over compressed like many recording which seemed to be made only for the i-pod generation. The sensible thing here is it is not turned up ridiculously loud to ruin the quality, that has been left for you to do with your own volume knob. As for the songs, all the fans know them Rubberband girl, Eat the music, Moments of pleasure, which are my personal favorites, I could go on. Although not in my opinion her best album it still original and unlike anyone else still to be great. This re-master opens your ears to a knew experience. There is no news as yet if the other three albums that Kate Bush now has complete control of will get them same treatment, I hope she considers to re visit them as The Dreaming is 29 years old now, and the original LP still sounds crisp and warmer than the only CD issue. Lets hope so. Thumbs up Kate Bush you are not alone, not all of us want out music compressed!

Working again at her home studio, Kate Bush was keen to get away from an overly fussy sound indebted to technology and instead wanted to focus again on live tracking and a more band-based sound. Such was the loose feel of the early sessions that she intended to tour the record. However, as recording continued, Bush simply couldn't resist adding and overdubbing and eventually she substituted the idea of a tour for a film ("The Line, The Cross & The Curve.")

'The Red Shoes' was released at the end of 1993 after a fraught few years of stop-start sessions. It's often maligned as the weakest record in the Bush catalogue, but it possesses its fair share of fine moments. As Graeme Thomson points out in Under the Ivy: The Story of Kate Bush, it also must be said that the recording of the album was under something of a black cloud - a couple of close collaborators died just before the making of the album, her romantic relationship with bassist and engineer Del Palmer ended (although they continue to work professionally to this day), and, significantly, Bush's mother died in 1992, stopping work on the album for months.

It has an unfocused, messy quality that is entirely understandable when you consider these circumstances. Sonically, it feels a little outdated in its production style and the recording approach of the drums, but vocally it finds Bush in perhaps her most powerful, elastic voice. Her performance on "Rubberband Girl" is one of her strongest vocals, and rhythmically it's a much more straightforward, propulsive, rock-influenced kind of sound than we had heard from her for a long time.

Curiously, it's an album full of celebrity cameos.

This is the third single released from Kate's album with the same name. A very catching, as well as a hypnotic song, influenced by Madagascan music. It has such a depth and quality that even after nine years I still discover new aspects of it. And I have listend to it quite a lot.
But, you have to be willing to really listen to music and not just consume it even though you could do that with this song also, due to its catchyness.
The B-Sides can upkeep that quality. Not just because they have been (Cloudbusting in a slightly different version)singles by themselves.
"You want Alchemy" has not and still does.
It is beautiful and enchanting and just the right thing after the driving title track.
Kate Bush makes music to last and this is another example for it.
