4.0 out of 5 stars the mad album, 21 May 2011
This review is from: The Dreaming (Audio CD)
Those were her words my mad album. At the time I bought this thinking it would continue where Never for ever had left off. It did not. It was a drastic move by Kate Bush which at the time confused her audience and made EMI ask questions, like why is Rolf Harris and Percy Edwards on a commercial record. Putting a side all the negatives regarding this record, time makes you re assess music that you may have over looked. Back in 1982 Kate Bush gained full control of her own carrier and therefore no longer required an outside producer. so this album is an experiment, but it is a good one. Without the Dreaming the Hounds of love would never have happed. Ok I have to say the Dreaming, title track is not one of my favorite, but Night of the Swallow, Houdini are classic Kate Bush, and the final get out of my house still makes me turn up the stereo. The only real hit on the album was sat in my lap, which did reach number 11, three other singles failed to dent the top 40. If you are a Bush fan then investigate this very clever step forward. This is not remastered just re released on Bush's own record label and is the same audio as the EMI original 80's release. The only problem is with first issue CD's (this is 29 years old now)is it is a well known fact that when Cd's first appeared no effort was made in the transfer from master tape to CD, tending not to give a real feel or what the original LP gave.(listen to the Dreaming on a good record deck and you will see what I mean). So I only wish Kate Bush would re masters this like the Red shoes from the original analogue tapes as the soundscape on that album is now amazing.
