There is something quite dark and dreamy about this album. For many years I wondered what was going through Kate's mind when she penned this. This was one of the many stand out albums of 1980, not purely on musical merit alone, but because nothing else like it emerged that year. I'm not hating on other chicks who rocked the 80's, you had Pat Benatar or even Carly Simon who was writing some decent material still. But nothing like this.

Kate's vocals are reminiscent of the previous two albums, but you can almost sense change coming. Her high pitch bewitching vocals, would soon disappear in favour of a silky smooth yet powerful vocal style found on "The dreaming" right up to "The sensual world" in 1989. Listen carefully and you can hear signs of a transition. "Babooshka" is oddly satisfying, with the slow piano build up leading into a repetitive but almost sultry chorus. The music video to this freaked me out a little as a child. In fact many of her late 70's early 80's videos did, but I was too young to get it so what the hey. "Egypt" almost goes off into progressive rock territory, with it's alluring mysterious keyboard section.

"Delius" is again repetitive, but extremely satisfying. You can really get a grasp on these songs some how. I now know it was written about the great composer of the same name, she saw a film about it as a child which inspired the song. "Army dreamers" is beautiful almost dare I say folky. "Night scented stock" is a beautifully layered vocal piece, which seems to me came from a very, very dark place. Reminds me of haunted houses or scary cat ladies.

Once again, Kate Bush demonstrates her uncanny ability to marry fascinating lyrical content to magical (and highly varied) musical styles. After the rather patchy 'Lionheart' album, 'Never For Ever' is an altogether more consistent collection. The 3 singles featured here are all quite superb, namely the stunning 'Babooshka', the poignant 'Army Dreamers' and the beautifully atmospheric 'Breathing', whilst most of the remaining 8 tracks are pretty interesting as well with the glorious madness of 'The Wedding List' standing out as a Bush classic in my book. This is an album which is a must have for any dedicated of fan of Kate and still sounds as fresh as it did when it was originally released in 1980.

Not many albums wear as well as Never For Ever; this remains as beautiful and strange as the day I first heard it in 1980. I can never quite decide which is my favourite Kate album but this is always among the contenders along with The Dreaming, The Kick Inside and Hounds of Love, all extraordinary in their own way.

Early Kate, a usual bursting symbolism and literary references. The woman can do no wrong

This has to be one of the most haunting recordings Kate ever made! Stands the test of time too, as my 9 yr old daughter loves it!

This is a favourite album and when I first heard it as a teenager, fitted well with my dark and broody persona. It tackles difficult subjects jealousy,nuclear war, the death of a young soldier and the complicated, almost Freudian child/parent relationship "Leave the breast and then the nest and then regret you ever left." (All We Ever Look For) Kate Bush pushes boundaries and I have thought that The Infant Kiss maybe goes too far, "I've never fallen for a little boy before" "I want to smack but I hold back I only want to touch." I can imagine that if the song was published now the media would be all over it. However I have read that she wrote it about a scean in the film The Innocents based on Henry James' Turn of the Screw and listening to the lyrics it makes perfect sense. The Governess comes to believe that the child in her care is under the influence of the ghost of an evil servant, in the film the boy asks for a goodnight kiss and she sees something behind his eyes that makes her question his innocence. Having said that I still find the song a bit creepy, maybe because I am now a mother but I do think it was very brave of her to include it.
Although the subject matter is sometimes dark the album is not unrelentlessly sombre the music changes pace with each song and is often upbeat, unlike her latest album 50 Words for Snow, which I found very down beat. I prefer the vintage Kate.
