This review is from: The Dreaming (Audio CD)
I bought this CD the other day after not having listened to it for years. I'd forgotten just how strange and beautiful it is, it's everything you want from a classic album. You're taken on a journey through the weird and wonderful, stories of the Vietnam War (Pull Out The Pin), bungled bank heists (There Goes a Tenner), Houdini's wifes part in the illusionists trickery (With A Kiss I'd Pass The Key), Irish jigs (Night of the Swallow) and the most amazing of all is her take on Stephen Kings "The Shining" in "Get Out Of My House" (I read that years ago when she was still writing this album) on which she sounds like a woman possesed, you can't imagine anyone could ever cover this track. I'd also forgotten how beautiful "All the Love" is...why all the 5 stars?? Because even after 20 years it's fresh innovative and bloody amazing!
