5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful soundscape as always, 30 Nov 2011
This review is from: 50 Words for Snow (Audio CD)
50 Words for Snow, her second album release this year after Director's Cut. The album consists of seven songs "set against a backdrop of falling snow" and has a running time of 65 minutes. The album features guest vocals by actor Stephen Fry and choral singer Stefan Roberts. Stephen Fry, Elton John and Andy Fairweather Low make guest appearances on the album. I heard the radio edit of the first single "Wild Man" which was played on BBC Radio 2's 'Ken Bruce' show on 10 October. The single, featuring both the radio edit as well as the album version, was released on 11 October. The New Musical Express's Priya Elan greeted the single with enthusiasm, saying: "For those of us who have been secretly longing for a return to the unflinchingly bizarre and Bush's ability to conjure up strange new worlds, 'Wild Man' is a deep joy." Listing to this album the quality is just fantastic. This a concept album as was disc two of Ariel,this no Hounds of love or Red shoes it has taken me three listens to get into the album, and although not as accessible as her other work this is still worth investigating. on a major plus side Kate Bush is one of the few artist who understands that music and till uses Analogue equipment which gets the full warmth and frequency range or the recording, it is a delight to listen to I wish all music could sound this warmand not be compressed to buggery, and this CD is a joy. (Adele your album 21 would have sounded fantastic if you had recorded it like Kate Bush).

I think you're so right! Coincidentally, I had actually listened to Adele's 21 prior to this. (Both on Vinyl BTW) Kate recorded this in good old fashioned analogue, and I think it shows. The Adele production just sounds 'clipped' if that makes any sense. I bought 50 words TWO YEARS ago, upon it's release, always knowing I would need the right mood to listen to it. Here we are, Christmas eve, 2013, and I can say, it WAS worth the wait!
