5.0 out of 5 stars Rubbish??!.....compared to who??, 28 Mar. 2005
This review is from: Hounds Of Love (Audio CD)
So Hounds Of Love is rubbish is it?...ok, well I agree that Joni Mitchell is a great talent and has produced some amazing work- she edges Kate out in the prolific output stakes, and is arguably the most influential female singer/songwriter ever...but Kate Bush is more than just a singer/songwriter....she rejected that tag very early on, and has more in common with the avant-garde, leftfield pop and experimentalism of, say, Steely Dan, David Sylvian, XTC, even Captain Beefheart...and Hounds Of Love is arguably the pinnacle of that experimentalism, although I personally rate The Dreaming above it for passion and intensity. Accusations of pretentiousness can easily be dismissed because this woman (more than virtually anyone else I can think of) has never done anything she did not believe in 100%, so no tired posing or fakeness or derivative b*****hit here- she is so challenging because she is so in your face with her convictions...if your poor weak heart can't handle it go and buy a Norah Jones CD instead.
