This review is from: 50 Words for Snow (Audio CD)
I can understand some fans being disappointed with this album if all they expected was a re-invention of the Kate Bush musical wheel; a lets go round on familiar ground. I believe Kate Bush to be an artist who relentlessly pushes herself to achieve new goals, not dwell on past victories and wonder how she might re-capture the music of her youth (don't let's forget that she released her first album, 'The Kick Inside' thirty-three years ago!!). That being said, this new album is an absolute stunner. On first play I was totally drawn in to her winter-world. The inclusion of other artists here serves to complement and deepen the beauty of each song. In an album of, for me, moving poetry and music, if I was forced to pick out favourites, I select 'Wild Man' and the hugely entertaining '50 Words for Snow'. 'Aerial' broke new ground, this album pulverises it!
