Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Hounds Of Love (Audio CD)
Very rarely an album comes along that stops a person's world, makes them want to sit down and rejoice in the brilliance of a writers talent and sheer musical ability.
When I first bought this album on its release I rushed home and put it on. I stood there confused and somewhat slightly dazed.
What happened? What was she up to? Where was the Kate I knew and loved?
She was there but she had grown up and had produced the most dramatic and visual (yes visual) piece of music EVER.
The 7-track second half - 'The Ninth Wave' is a story of a woman in a boat contemplating the concept of drowning. Don't sleep or you'll die. But she does and from the wish to lay back and 'Dream of Sheep' to the sweet 'Morning Fog' of rescue, you know that for ever more you will be a Kate fan.
Buy it - regardless of who you are!
